slip splash dior



Everything is connected, especially in fashion trends. Or memes, as an old (young) boyfriend used to call them. Ideas that seem to come to us and take a life of their own, like finding out that everyone you know around the world decided to wake up that morning and wear black and white. Or wear their underwear as outerwear, a phrase I've been using in the past few months and which Nicky of Lips of London referenced in her BRILLIANTLY WORDED POST on the recent Paris shows, from which I lifted this gorgeous fifties inspired Galliano number for Dior.

I had found a lovely example of this underwear-as-outerwear on a girl in the Tate, but it was a bit soft. Then I wore a slip for a week, and shot myself in the leg (slip splash). I'm looking forward to this filtering down to the high street, but between us girls: you've already got all the material you need right there at home. In your lingerie drawer!

I was at my Grandmother's place it's her pool- we were brought and so we did a shoot (my husband & I)

I always wanted to find out my numerology number too and have my palm read...
