Saturday morning I had the opportunity to see some of the creations of Zoe Boomer, originally from N Ireland and now a London fashion designer (yes – how glamorous!). Zoe is the wee sister of a good friend (Hi Sue) and the sisters hosted a fashion and charity coffee morning in aid of Save the Children fund.
It was lovely to see Zoe’s designs – her work is amazing, and we even tried a few things on. I bought a versatile wrap in a inky/petrol/aubergine colour, it is beautifully floaty and was shown numerous ways to wear it.
Here is the lovely Zoe
And a few of the items being tried on.
It was much more fun than a typical shopping experience, trying clothes on behind screens in the living room, being able to walk around the house, getting lots of opinions and suggestions from friends. All in such a friendly and relaxed environment, unlike most designer boutiques which intimidate the life out of me!
It was such a lovely warm morning, we were then able to enjoy our coffee and tea out in the garden – all very civilised and all in a great cause – Save the Children Fund.
So …. back to reality! My blog journal.
I am (mostly) enjoying creating this record, but sometimes the topics are a bit more of a challenge. Today I plan to add quite a number, so bear with me please!!!
Day 16 – My Worst Habit
Probably my tendancy to accumulate clutter, and my ability to totally ignore the clutter if I am engrossed with my jewellery making. I’m also very good at procrastination.
If you want to know more of my bad habits you should ask my husband!
Day 17 – Pet Peeves
Unreliability and un-punctuality
Rudeness and disrespectfulness
I think that covers it!
So, over to you – anything you would care to share? You know I love to read your comments.
