In the Pink

So we came across this gorgeous cream, round neck, sleeveless vintage blouse the other day and fell in love straight away. We fell in love with the gorgeous crisp fabric, clean lines and it's minimalism. 
When we took it home I had a lightbulb moment as I realised it was the perfect blouse to showcase the gorgeous petal pink, Rose Bud lining I've had draped over our gorgeous antique mannequin for the last week or two. So we dusted off the sewing machine... it's been a while since I turned the dials and threaded the needle of a 'sew box' as I like to call them.

Once I was done, we loved it so much that we went crawling round our neighbourhood at 1am in the morning. We got a few stares from a few crazy dog walkers ..... I mean who walks their dogs at this time? But then again who walks about the streets in an outfit suitable for sunshine at 1am? ;)

Annies from the Colour Block


Good Monday afternoon to you all. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. We finally had a gorgeously sunny day yesterday that managed to last right up till dinner time. Out popped the BBQ and garden parasol and we had our first BBQ of the year...we did make dinner time alot earlier than usual through fear of a disapearing sun... but all the same dinner time was great. We thought it was a perfect day for trying out some bright and wonderful colour blocking.
We picked out a few of our wonderful spring summer peices, and love the combination of colours. We paid no attention to this trends rule book and we soon found colours that shouldn't go together so so did. But does Colour Blocking have a rule book? We no longer think so :)

The Annies xoxo
