Celebrate Christmas with Levi’s

Celebrate Christmas with Levi’s

If you’re still stuck for Christmas shopping ideas, the lovely folks over at Levi’s have compiled a great little gift guide for both men and women, in stores and online now. I was asked by Levi’s to pick a couple of pieces from the Christmas collection and style them my own way. I chose a cosy, thick-knitted cardigan (perfect for cold winter nights!) and a pair of Curve ID jeans. Considering I’ve not actually worn jeans in a couple of […]

My Crafty Christmas Ornaments for the V&A…

My Crafty Christmas Ornaments for the V&A…

I am not a crafty person. Sewing a button back on gives me panic attacks, so you can imagine my reaction when I got an email from the V&A asking if I wanted to participate in a crafty blogger christmas project, creating a tree ornament… I’m still not sure why, but I said yes. A day later, 4 bits of beautiful Liberty for V&A fabric and a sewing kit arrived. Now, when I tell you I’m not good at this […]
