Sailboats and Florals

From cardigans and dresses to new bedding and the £1.99 Cath Kidston socks, SPRING HAS SPRUNG! Here are my essential favourites for the season….

Sailboat dress, Topshop.

This week I fulfilled one of my ambitions of many years. I bought Cath Kidston bedding! I am so thrilled with it. Plus, it was from TK Maxx, £39.00 for Kingsize.

 

I've salivated over this cardigan from Urban Outfitters for about a year, back when they only did it in cream. Recently they featured the cardigan in a variety of different colours, from pink to maroon, blue and green. This week, as I couldn't afford the cardigan myself until my next student loan, my sister (so kindly!) bought it for me in secret and surprised me with it in Starbucks. I love her... and it ❤ Without a doubt, it's honestly the softest thing I've ever worn. I can't wait to wear it all summer.

And now for the New Look Floral Rose Socks! £1.99, and I think they look just like a Cath Kidston print. I love them. Again, I have to thank my benevolent sister. (If you click on the image, you will be taken to the right page on the New Look website.)

 

 

 

 

My Challenge: Can you help?

I have a difficult task and am appealing to the world wide web for help.

I’m playing Phoebe in Shakespeare’s As You Like It.  The production is being set in the 1920’s.  The character of Phoebe is a young female shepherd.  The problem I have is that I cannot find a suitable way of dressing her.  I have to find about three outfits which will look like a young, land-working woman, or general rural person from the 1920’s era.  Please help.

 

THE CHALLENGE:

To find three costumes.

The Character:

Phoebe, young woman, probably in her twenties. Shepherd- works in the fields all day, but still has a certain allure and attractiveness.

 

If you have any ideas or see any outfits, I’d love to hear about them.

 

HELP!

The New Remorse, Oscar Wilde.

The sin was mine; I did not understand.
So now is music prisoned in her cave,
Save where some ebbing desultory wave
Frets with its restless whirls this meagre strand.
And in the withered hollow of this land
Hath Summer dug herself so deep a grave,
That hardly can the leaden willow crave
One silver blossom from keen Winter's hand.

But who is this who cometh by the shore?
(Nay, love, look up and wonder!) Who is this
Who cometh in dyed garments from the South?
It is thy new-found Lord, and he shall kiss
The yet unravished roses of thy mouth,
And I shall weep and worship, as before.
