the garden collection



It was cold & even a bit rainy @ times the other day, when we had our 2nd Official Covent Garden Cupcake Convention (the blog roll is increasing: this was all Jen's idea, bless her cotton socks: Kit, the Style Slicker, Shini from Park & Cube, and the elusive but brilliant Vanessa Jackman herself! I loved the way Shini reacted when she realised it was Vanessa: read Jen's post, she wrote exactly what I would have. Uncanny, actually. (I wonder if real life celebrities get that way when they meet: if Tom Cruise, for example, when he meets Daniel Craig, says oh my god, I just loved you in those Bond films.. actually,.. never mind, not even GOING there! ; )

Then Hedvig arrived, breathless & beautiful, in her new dress from the Garden Collection @ H&M. I think she should do a blog - her life is utterly fascinating. I for one would follow it.

You won't believe this - well, Pearl,, YOU probably will - but I must post & run, this time to the gym for a swim! But I want to say from my heart how much it meant to me to wake up & read your amazing comments on yesterday's post. I can't wait to add mine, and continue this conversation. Please, if you haven't see it already, read what people wrote: it's so how I feel.

Shini said...

I feel so embarassed I didn't recognise her :( but then again I've never seen a proper pic of her hehe (You should've let me know! kidding)

Great photo Jill, the strip of colour in the bokeh background really adds colour balance to the whole pic! Absolutely love her jacket, couldn't believe it was MNG!

This cupcake meet needs to expand into some UK blogger tradition soon ;)

OMG, this is the best way to wear florals in chilly weather! I like how she's nonchalantly paired the dress w/ an olive military jacket- it's so wrong, but it's soooo right. My goodness, how far we've come from the matchy-matchy aesthetic! Brilliant.

Love it. I was just talking about wearing our spring and summer dresses in winter by layering - this is such a perfect example! Love it!!

I'm not a fan of the dress (although it does look great on her!) but I LOVE the shoes... Where are they from, does anyone know?

wow, so jealous, as i moaned about in my blog, my local H&M barely had any of the garden stuff in, and definitely not this dress! she looks so lovely, i might have to make a special trip to oxford circus to a big H&M and have a proper root around.
really lovely splash of colour with all the grey!
