Ever since I saw Angelina Jolie’s wedding veil embellished with the embroidered pictures drawn by her children, I’ve had visions of getting my nieces and nephews to scribble away so I can create something similar. Then Dolce & Gabanna featured children’s drawing in their Viva La Mamma A/W 2015 collection and my internal fashionometer went through the roof.
When, a few weeks ago I found this fabric online, someone almost had to call the emergency services.
It is IDENTICAL to a D&G Print and I was hitting “add to basket” before I had even fully realised what I was doing. I mean- LOOK AT IT!!!
So in double quick time I made myself a skirt and it really is the skirt of a thousand dreams.
Yes the photo is total and utter rubbish but after 50 snaps the camera just wouldnt get it right so I gave up. I must admit to not actually wearing it out when this photo was taken, I just couldn’t wait any longer to show it to you all. I have absolutely NOWHERE to wear this voluminous number to so you can expect to see me sashaying along the cereal isle and strutting down the frozen veg lane in Asda. Do I care? Nope. Maybe you can take a better photo for me when you see me.
I had a little extra fabric and so I’ve made three girls’ skirts (6-12 month, 12- 18 months, 3-4 years) which are listed in my Etsy shop.
I have enough fabric for one more adult skirt so if you would like to make one for you- any size- head to the shop and convo me!
*****23/01/2016- I can now get more of this fabric so will be featuring more skirts in the shop- YAY!*****
Oh Anna, you are a woman after my own heart. The Anna Scholz world is rampant with colour this season and fun accessories. It’s just a shame that today is the day the mild winter decided to get cold and nasty and right now the only colour that exists in my world is thermal. Spring- I see you on the horizon- hurry up and get into full view.
PS- I LOVE the blogger lookbook.
This week’s edition of IOTW is this superb striped sequin dress as worn by fellow blogger Jeniese from The Je Ne Sais Quoi. I think she looks WAY better in this stunning piece than the model on the Eloquii site so here she is, serving it up and showing us all how it’s done.
I’ve been busy making a dress for a client to wear to this Saturday’s British Plus Size Awards. I’m so looking forward to seeing photos of her in it. I hope she loves it as much as I do! Who’s going?
The Beloved Endeavour Etsy shop now has a clearance section- be sure to head over there to snap up some bargain items before they are gone forever!
I am SO not made for TV. My piece on Cuppa TV/ Big Centre TV was aired today and I deliberately avoided the 10am showing as I just could not face it. I half watched and half heard the 4.30 airing through closed eyes and fingers in my ears. My voice sounds SO STRANGE that I may never speak again. Its very rare that I hear a recording of my voice and its barely recogniseable. If you missed it you can watch it here though it may not play outside the UK. If you are outside the UK and the link works please let me know!
So yesterday I stepped WAAAAAY outside of my comfort zone and did a TV interview. And I survived. It’s not my first TV piece (I did one in 2009-ish) but it still had me bricking it. I’m not someone who likes centre stage, I’m not a talker, I’m more of a writer so the internet suits me just fine. Audiovisuals make me lose sleep. Theres no thinking time and no self editing. I apologise now if I say something daft!
The show will be aired this morning at 10am and this afternoon at 4.30 on Freeview Channel 8 and Virgin 159. Eek!
Vest top- Evans
Skirt- Beloved Endeavour (YAY!)
Shoes- New Look
