How do you get Dressed?


Today I have a guest post over at my friend Kristabel’s blog where I’ve delved into my wardrobe and explained how it is that I actually go about choosing what to wear.

Kristabel’s blog is full of colour, what to wear inspiration and musings on what she’s looking to buy and how she’ll go about wearing it. She loves collections and groups of objects so I thought that my eclectic wardrobe would be a perfect thing to share over on her fashion lifestyle site.

Here are a few outtakes to give you a flavour of the post – do go over and let her know what you think!

      Hey Cathia
      I just looked on eBay for reto or shabby chic or Victorian style rails. I think this was about 60 pounds 🙂 x
