I’m sitting here, watching the most magnificent sunset and feeling all autumnal. So I thought I’d do a quick post to show off these photos I just got back from Tony Nylons, who did a shoot with me for Heyday’s new season Olivia Blouses! These lovely late 1930s style blouses are named after Olivia de Havilland, who is one of the very last remaining screen stars of the era.
Anyway, a few weeks ago Tony and I headed off to a place called the Trench Experience. Now, it can be said that the clothes I was modelling were far too futuristic for the museum, but inside it was lovely, and the various areas and the very Land Girl-esque garden definitely worked for this more Second World War fashion shoot! We had a blast and I absolutely loved the new fabrics. Have a look.
Blouses in Deco Circles in Smoke and Lucky Limeflower
Here I am in Deco Circles in Blue and Red, and Enchanted, although Shona tells me she is still awaiting stock of the Red version so hang tight on those!
Last but not least, there’s the Forget Me Not and a Cherry blouse of which Shona is also awaiting stock. Unfortunately, they are made in New Zealand and they’ve been undergoing rather a lot of earthquakes lately!
So an understandable delay!
I know I would be biased since she is my friend and now colleague, but I think Shona gets her fabrics so right. Especially the Deco Circles, which are utterly gorgeous. In the interest of honesty, this is what I would call a semi-sponsored post, because Shona gave me some blouses and trousers as payment for this shoot. I know I will be wearing mine to threads!
PS. If anyone out there feels the need to correct my ‘American’ title… let me just say now that ‘fall’ is as (olde worldy) English as… er… fish and chips and stiff upper lips! So there. 😉
