Rock The Week

Fashion related (and totally non-fashion related) things that have made my world go round over the last seven days…

Norman Parkinson for Queen magazine

  • An Eye For Fashion. M Shed’s exhibition of Norman Parkinson photography is sublime, offers an insight into Bristol’s high street of yesteryear, and is dominated by 50s and 60s fashion – bang on trend for this season – what’s not to love? I went to the exhibition this week, and I thoroughly recommend it.
  • New blogs! Over the last few weeks I’ve been trying to freshen up my Bloglovin’ feed with some new blogs, and revisiting a few old favourites. Florence Finds has got some fab recipes and photography, plus plenty of pretty dresses, the Oxfam Fashion Blog provides an insight into how the charity is constantly evolving its fashion sector, and this week Niki of Hip Shapes and Bristol Fashion inspired me with her outfit post on printed jackets.
  • Motel vintage. Last week I found two gorgeous vintage dresses from Motel and I decided to face my outfit-posting fears and take a few photos in our garden. It made me fall in love with Motel again and I can’t wait for more warm weather so I can wear these dresses again!

Ship-Shape is moving...

  • And finally, some exciting news! I’ve been waiting for ages to share this but Mr Ship-Shape and I have bought a house! We’ll be moving in very soon so I may go AWOL for a bit, but I’m very excited, if a tad nervous that we are now on the property ladder. Also worried that cheeky shopping trips to Cabot Circus will be replaced with Saturdays spent wandering the aisles of B&Q and incessant tweets about DIY, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it…

That’s it from me for this week – I’ve got to finish packing. What has been rocking your world this week? Let me know by commenting below….
