crochet.


Crochet seems to have ended up somewhere around the top of my current favourite, and also wish list for summer. Flashbacks of working in All Saints, and the prospect of merchandising tie-dye crochet triangle bra crop tops once haunted me... yet now I find myself sampling the trend. Times change, and I guess our tastes and styles are ever evolving.  
I'm sure I am not alone in thinking it is both oh so wrong, yet so right? Whoever would have thought we would see another appearance at Chanel after the bobbly crochets of RTW FALL 2007?! I also fell in love with Kate Bosworth at Coachella in the dusky grey pink Topshop dress.
I find myself captivated by the ingenious talent that is the 'art of crochet' along with 'lace making' and just hope that the skill survives time!

  22. Beautiful pics and I love your hair and necklace! Crochet always reminds me of Jr. High - I think it made me feel older and cooler than I ever was. Now I think it might make me just look older. But you are sooo rocking it!

  25. I love it! It's slightly "lazy day" looking, but it definitely isn't :) I can crochet, but I would never have the patience to make anything like that (goes and buys one)
    Awesome feel to the photos (despite the sky)

    Thanks for comments as always ^^

  26. OMG!!! The way you DIY-ed that pair of Miu Miu wedge is brilliant! Do you need a mold or just literally drew on the shoe? And where's the promised second post on Miu Miu DIY?
    Lovely images (not to mention the garden!)! Keep the self-styling shots up, absolutely adorable! :)
    POST THE SECOND MIU MIU DIY PLEASE!!

  51. Gosh I ♥ that crocheted top, I'd tried on a similar cardigan at Topshop but it didn't look quite right - this looks much more structured.

  52. Crochet is surprisingly chic in this simple shape. But really, crochet and clogs - who knew both would make a comeback?!
