So…one of my new year’s resolutions is to be more creative, starting with a bit of fashion illustration. The SS13 Mulberry show invitation for London fashion week included a mini set of watercolours which I have finally put to good use. I had so much fun painting these imaginary brogues that I plan to get […]Read more "I’ve been painting!"
Happy new year everyone! I’d like to welcome all my new readers: my, have you guys been keen to find out about about stylish flat shoes over the holidays!
