Had a lovely day yesterday, apart from listening to my daughter chat and play sounds on a Liverpool Radio station, I was also on a chat show with Ferni on Radio Cumbria. He’s
really crazy a really enthusiastic guy. I told him all about my lecture on the Femme Fatale at the Little Black Dress Exhibition at Tullie House in Carlisle on the 16th Feb at 7.00pm
Everyone gets a glass of .. and hopefully comes in their favourite lbd, I am really looking forward to it
beginning to panic about it, coz it is going to be just like the day that Chanel invited all her guests to a show and demanded they all wore black after the death of her lover. I don’t know what its going to feel like talking to an all black sparkly audience probably terrifying. So dig out your black dresses especially for the occaission and find out what makes black so iconic. Hope someone turns up to see you there.

This Dazed and Confused blog is great helps you to catch up with all the S/S 2012 looks all at once, http://www.dazeddigital.com/fashionweek/womenswear/ss12/
Love the Georgio Armani look for S/S 2012 and Louis Vuitton gotta say it is great to have femininity back on the runway. They look so fantastic they are worth investing in, as they will never die. But if you haven’t got that kinda money like me, I just put this look together using a vintage creamy yellow linen jacket and a vintage lace collar, looks great.
It is possible to be who you want to be, create your own look for summer, with a mix that like on offer and no single particular trend to follow. Look out for these blogs too the sartorialist, great phots and http://www.jedroot.com/ they have some really good looks.

Maggi talks through her hats, telling a poignant story of love and loss, laced with inspirational creativity. She was a designer/maker who investigated how artists and designers think when they make, so that they could benefit from reflecting on their own experiential learning. As a result through her inspirational diaries, she uncovered her own thinking and the power of the creative artistic process of making and writing to lessen the effects of trauma and sadness.
