Typical. You wait 29 years for a heart-thumping creative project to arrive, then two come along at once.
Last Friday saw the launch of Jane Gowans' nautical-inspired Captain Collection for S/S13. Once again I was at the helm (see what I did there? Helm! Nautical! I'm so hilarious) when it came to creating and styling the lookbook and I'm pretty thrilled with how it turned out. The images have been featured in some fancypants places and most importantly, Jane is a happy girl. She even went so far as to describe me as a styling superstar. I knew I liked her.
I'll share a behind-the-scenes take soon (I wasn't hung over this time! And I was marginally less terrified! Victory!). In the meantime you can see the full collection and admire the lookbook here.
FYI: that's not me up there. Unfortunately. This is me:
Always with the booze.
As if the launch of Jane's collection weren't enough to have me bouncing off the walls, on Tuesday Lillian and Leonard posted their photos of Blonde Bridesmaid's wedding. When I saw Cara tweet about it, I nearly passed out at my desk from sheer excitement. Instead, I ran to the "fun" computer (the one that doesn't block everything non-work-related that could therefore be vaguely interesting) and looked at every single photo. Twice. In the middle of a weekday morning. Sometimes, you just have to prioritise.
There is so much I want to tell you about it, but my words can wait. The pictures say plenty for now. Go, look, enjoy. Drool.
(Okay I will just say one thing. Wasn't my friend a smokin' hot bride?)
