My Gran Vera the Fashion Icon

Photography by my talented Grandad Raymond Fletcher in the Sixties

At the weekend I was visiting my lovely Gramps up in Sunny Lancashire enjoying the breath taking views, cute villages and pubs all over the country side. I mentioned to my Gran briefly that I would love to have a look through her old pics for some inspiration. Knowing what a glamorous lady she has always been I knew I would find some gems of inspiration. Anywho as we were so busy fitting in all the visits meals and drinks we totally forgot. But Tuesday morning I opened the mail box to find a stuffed envelope full of old photos taken in the 50's and 60's in all shapes and sizes. I was thrilled she had remembered and trusted me with these beautiful pics. I hope you enjoy them and they inspire you, I adore my Gran Vera and think the world of her.

What would Zooey choose?

I was lucky enough on Monday to catch these cool cats at Shepherds Bush empire, she was far more amazing than I was expecting with a very unique voice.  Not fare really that one lady should have so many talents while also being as cute as a button. I have been listening to Volume two plenty this week while imagining Zooey jumping about on stage dressed head to toe in Nadinoo. Just need to figure out how to make this daydream come true. 

What would you dress her in?

Natalie Rae Richardson

Natalie Rae Richardson's Graduate collection
Found on Fashion 156 

This amazing collection really captures the imagination, the detailed embroideries are almost alive on these beautifully tailored pieces. My favorite has to be the first shirt, I'd quite happily wear it with a pair of Jeans and that wooden bag.
 Natalie should certainly be proud of her debut collection, exciting to see what she will come up with next.

Afternoon delights

On Thursday afternoon I decided to take a cheeky afternoon off from the Nadinoo production line and head to Shoreditch to catch up with my new friend Tommy

We visited the Geffrye Museum which houses rooms with decor from all the decades. The above room from 1965 being our most favorite. A shame none of it was for sale as I could see myself settling in beautifully...

We found a magical hidden room over looking the gardens with old books to poor over while soaking up the afternoon sun. 

I did venture to that Orla Kiely sample sale last week (In case you were wondering) and this lovely blue coat is one of the lucky ones that got to come home with me.. 

All this beautiful photography is by 
Tommy from This is Naive
