big bow, baggy pants



Good morning! My laptop cord is wonky and every time I try to post, it crashes. Mr. Dot is already at yoga class, which starts in two minutes. Holding my breath this will post before it crashes. Will come back to you with these designers.



Note: sandals with socks. I've been wearing them all these years, it's such a vindication that suddenly, it's cool.

Oh! If you're in or near London, today is the Annual Open Garden Square Day. I don't dare link it as time is of the essence, but google it: you can get inside the private gardens. We'll be at ours after yoga, hope to see you there.



Again, thank you to SHOPGIRL, of Sugar and Spice, for sourcing the designer of the previous two posts: Ludmila Maida of Northumbria University.

The collections look really great, but as much as the winning collection was good, there were some others I thought to be better, and more innovative. I couldn't be a judge, because I had so many favourites.

Hey Jill. Yoga and fashion is quite the combination. I've missed this year's GFW but i'm loving this post.

You're welcome :)

Thank you all!

ivoreece: yes, all mine ; )

Adorngirl: I agree. I got there after the 1:00 show started, assumed I'd just go for the 3:30, but Tanya said I could still get in to see the first one (it was the same show). So I basically shot the 'runners up' first, then caught up on the second show. I felt that many of that group were as good or better than the first group.

IMHO ; )

Hi Jill! I've tried the sandals and socks thing but always wimp out before leaving the house! Maybe I don't have the right sock and sandal combo... Would love some of those Pierre Hardy for Gap sandals that Canned Fashion Natalie wears so well with socks here http://www.cannedfashion.com/2010/02/vanessa-jackman.html
I think I will trawl ebay for some!
