Rock The Week

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

Yummy strawberries

  • Homeward bound. I went home for a family wedding (and a dentist appointment, eek!) on Friday. It was a whirlwind visit as I came back to Bristol on Saturday, but it included home-grown strawberries, celebrating with family I haven’t seen in years, wearing my vintage dress from Ears & Whiskers and trying to explain to Grandma Ship-Shape what Google is.
  • Style Bubble meets Tatty Divine. Style Bubble is one of those blogs that I keep faithfully in my Bloglovin account and check up on occasionally, but often I find the posts are either irrelevant to me or the fashion/designers out of my comfort zone. Not a bad thing, as it informs and educates, but not always easy reading. That’s why I love Friday’s post about Tatty Devine. I love the brand and the opportunity to see inside their studio – a brilliant post that’s well worth reading if you’re fans of the design duo.

  • Ballgowns at the V&A. Back in May I visited the V&A as part of my stay in London. Ballgowns: British Glamour Since 1950 was one of the museum’s standout exhibitions, and I wrote a lengthy post about it here. It tapped into my princess fantasies and I thoroughly recommend visiting it if you haven’t already done so.
  • Green fingers. My parents took me back to Bristol yesterday and spent the afternoon helping Mr Ship-Shape and I plant herbs, lavender and pepper and chilli plants in our garden. We have a habit of killing whatever planets make it through the front door, but I’m excited to see our garden starting to take shape and can’t wait to get cooking with all our produce!

  1. Yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I really want to eat those strawberries! I’m like you when it comes to Style Bubble, I follow it but ost of the posts make me feel so out fo the loop. Love the Tatty Devine feature though…looks like such a fun place to work 🙂 x

  2. mmmm homegrown strawberries are the best, if you don’t let the squirrels at them, which is always my problem! Good luck with all your other green things as well – hopefully you will have a great crop before too long!
