This is one of my favourite parts of my home.  My Mother made me the Peony cushion and I bought the strip of peony fabric at a vintage fair with her.  My clothes hang down one side, but I like looking at the different fabrics, textures and patterns. Behind I can look out at the street and going-ons of London life. 
Ironically I am not at all a pink person, however this is a post all about it. I have wanted to post this skirt for a while, and when it came to it I couldn’t resist the Strawberry Sherbet theme. 

I recently bought these shoes from a sample sale, so they have a little damage, and I put half innersoles in - because my feet never grew past 15! - but I love them. 

The pink shirt is another steal from my mother, the last time I went home… dont tell! hehee

    I can’t describe how much I love your outfit even though I’m not a pink person either!! :)

  • Amanda says:

    I think my favourite parts of your outfit are the sweater with the hot pink collars peeking through, and that amazing feather skirt :) You’re so stunning though, like mixed ethnicity?

    @CJSUPERB – Thanks Babe!

    @Eliza – I know sometimes I can break through the pink thing and love it, but it has to be pretty special for me to manage it. So happy you managed it with this outfit.
