in a gilded cage
This is definitely one of my favourite outfits of the fall (shame it had to happen right at the end). I've been loving red and yellow so much on other people, but I didn't quite manage to unite them in one outfit myself until now! This skirt was my birthday present to myself, and like most purchases I hummed and hawed and wondered if maybe I shouldn't get the more sensible navy blue colour instead. As always, I ignored sense and went with the brightest option possible, and as always I'm really glad I did. At the end of the day, I don't think I'm much of a "basics" kind of person. I greeted with horror the news that the autumn collections for this year were supposed to be all about minimalism and camel coats. Blechhhhh. Grace Kelly and her tribe are definitely not my style icons.
I guess that's as close to an apology as you're getting for my assaulting your eyes with my fluorescent legs!
El fotógrafo fenominal! I'm a bit bad about giving credit where credit is due. Credit is kind of due all over the place, but basically, recent fantastic photos have been by this wearer of excellent sweaters, summer's fantastic photos were often by my sister, and other photos where frequently I'm missing feet are by me and my tripod.
