Festival Chic

It's festival season and for the first time ever I'm joining in. This September I'm going to Bestival and although I'm getting more, and more excited with each passing month, I'm also slightly terrified.

You see, I've never been to a festival - I've never even been camping, or slept in a tent, so you can imagine my apprehension. However, one thing I am looking forward to is my new festival wardrobe.

Here are a few of my favourite pieces from this seasons spring/summer high street collections.

I love fashion, but this passion doesn't come from seeing my first Haute Couture runway show or even buying first copy of Vogue. It comes from those around me.

My mum and her 34 year old sewing machine, my family of London eccentrics, those completely outrageous individuals who can walk into a pound shop and create an outfit out of a pillow case. These are the people who inspire me on a daily basis; they are the ones who truly make fashion great.

The All New Girl Playing Dress Up

For those of you who have been loyal followers of this blog since day one (approximately 4 years ago) you are probably wondering what the hell is going on. Well, let me explain.

Late last year I decided to take, A Girl Playing Dress Up, off line after realising I had completely grown out of it. You see, I started this blog at the ripe old age of 23 and with my 28th birthday fast approaching I felt it was time for a change.

So, here it is, the all new and improved (slightly older) version of, A Girl Playing Dress Up. Enjoy!
