Last week, I was with my friend Natayla, who just started a wonderful blog called Treasures of a Ladybug, in one of my favourite places in London: the V&A courtyard. From a distance, I saw Sinead, and ran towards her with what I assume was her family (I didn't ask!). They found us after their lunch in the restaurant inside, and we did this quick shoot.
Sinead is a photographer: this is her blog. Even if she hadn't told me, I'd have known she was artistic: she somehow transformed a rather busy space into something magical. Mr. Dot just looked at the photos and said they were 'dreamlike'.
She mostly wears vintage clothes (I love what she did with the skirt: simply pinned it up like a bustle), and while I didn't know from a distance, it's only fitting that she's wearing two patterns of polka dots.* And that as yesterday's theme was orange, today's is the next in the spectrum: yellow.
*(and the lovely Jazzabelle of Jazzabelle's Diary has just confirmed: Sinaed's gloves appear to have been purchased @ the V&A shop: click here). Thanks J!)
Thank you to those who entered or participated in my first Annual Polka Dot Princess of the May Pole competition on the facebook you've been dotted club.
Leah, of the blog by the same name, is the undisputed winner, but on Friday night, I awoke suddenly and it was as if the May Day Muse spoke to me and said: 'make them all the winners'.
I know Leah will have been busy this weekend, but we'll do an online interview with her soon. Soon, tho, I'll be posting a shoot of another entry, Daniela, so stay tuned. In the meantime, this is Polka Dot, signing off: to watch a bit of telly, then sleep and, perchance, dream.
