Vintage Fashion Shoot


A couple of months ago I mentioned HERE
that I was relaunching my vintage clothing business
and that my home was rendevouz central for a fashion shoot,
the clothes were sourced from my online shop
for the Christmas fashion feature in the December edition
of our city's glossy magazine Carlisle Living.

It came out yesterday and l'm pretty pleased with it,
if only a little disconcerted that a model is standing
in the middle of the garden conifers,
my conservatory couch is incongruously
(sorry should that read edgey?!) on the wet lawn
and a 'drunken blonde' is badly hovering my living room carpet!
All's fair in love and fashion, I guess!


if you click twice they will enlarge!

  2. ooh - that's all so lovely.

    I was intrigued at the thought of a drunken model hovering in your living room. I thought 'wow - how'd they do that?'

    But I realise she was hoovering. Pesky things, vowels.

    After a moments thought, perhaps hoovering while drunk or hungover is even wierder. Who'd do that? I love the fantasy fashion shoot. Completely excellent and the clothes are great.

Have a lovely restful weekend after all that bugs, nursing and mad, manic stuff we all get embroiled in, non?! Love, Fhi xxooxx

  20. Congratulations on a fabulous shoot! I love the picture that, unfortunately, may have ruined your couch; and the one in the conservatory is quite edgey and...haunting, somehow.
    Well done. Hope it's a profitable venture.

  24. OMG!!! a fashion shoot IN YOUR OWN HOUSE!! how thrilling - I'm very jealous. Love the clothes. Spent Sunday afternoon in Libertys trying on Vivienne Westwood with my beautiful 16 year old daughter. She looked stunning, all legs arms, reminded me of a baby giraffe (minue the long neck of course!). Still loving the blog - I've run out of steam on mine....Mx

  25. These are absolutely gorgeous. Best of luck with the re-launch, doubt you'll need much though as it'll most likely take off anyway.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
