Style Muse: Meredith in Mad Men

It's been a while since my last style muse post and after catching up with the last season of Mad Men (sob!), I thought we should all take a moment to appreciate Meredith's wardrobe. She has really come into her own this season and has had some great scenes and brilliant one-liners. Her wardrobe is just too adorable - lots of frills and ruffles!

A Lesson In Crimplene

I've been asked numerous times over the years how to tell if a piece of fabric or clothing is crimplene and I always struggle to give an answer as I can't really explain how I can tell if something is crimplene, I just sort of know - not very helpful really (I would make a rubbish teacher). Today I thought I'd show you some close ups of vintage 1960s and 1970s crimplene that I have in my collection, in the hope that it will go someway to explaining what exactly crimplene is. 

Me Made May

This year I didn't make a pledge for Me Made May but I thought I'd still update you on any me-made outfits that I wear this month. I've been posting snaps of my outfits on Instagram so if you follow me on there you'll have seen these pictures before.

So far this month I've been quite bad at documenting my outfits and there have been a few that I've completely forgotten to take photos of until it was too dark to get any decent shots.

A Boho Bloggers Day Out

Last Saturday I spent the day hanging out with Beyond Retro and a group of other lovely bloggers as part of their bohemian bloggers day out.

The day started off with brunch at The Breakfast Club in Hoxton, a place I'd heard of but had never been to before. I ordered the pancakes with berries and a cup of tea which was so yummy and really filling. I never make pancakes at home and I don't know why, I must remedy this!
