Summary of Stories 2017

Folks! The Stories category is making a comeback next week but before heading into more posts of history and fashion in a societal context, I thought I’d bring back some old posts first. To give new readers an idea of what the category is about, but also give old readers a chance to revisit a favorite or two? Here’s a summary of stories 2017:

    • Happy you liked them Tina there’ll surely be more to come! Xx

  1. Sustainable fashion is something I’m trying to become more knowledgeable about so I definitely need to go back and read your pieces on that. I love that you have such a great mix of style inspiration + things to learn about here!

    • Yay Shea, glad to hear that you like the posts. And thank you for the kind words, Xx

  2. Yes, yes, yes! Love this series. Nothing like taking a look back at all of your hard work and all of the different trends and styles – from every decade! Pretty timely considering my seamstress told me my wedding gown looked very 1960s to her?! I’ll leave that up to you to decide when you see it 😉


    • Aaahhh, thank you Quinn!! Oh that sounds exciting love, can’t wait to see your wedding dress! Xx
