Pretty Flamingo….

I had a lunch date on Saturday with my Dad & Sister. We made the excellent decision to try The Butterfly & The Pig and the even smarter choice of ordering a delicious bottle of rosé. The food was fantastic. They also have tasty gluten free & veggie options, which was lovely for me. Anyway after much gabbing & laughing we emerged back onto to Bath St looking for a good photo spot. 

  

After a little shopping & some head scratching we plumped for a wee lane. It offered us some protection from the wind whilst also being a funky urban backdrop. 

  

My sister had her work cut out for her as I was dissatisfied with picture after picture. However, we eventually  hit on just the right pose & positioning.

I’m incredibly fond of my spikes. They take this basic Jersey top to the next level. I am equally charmed by this bondishy belt. Be that as it may, nothing compares to the love I feel for my flamingo hair clip. I’m not usually one to latch on to trends, but the flamingos I am seeing everywhere make my heart beat faster.

  

She’s in fashion….

This weekend was the launch of Edinburgh’s first fashion week. My sister & I decided to jump on train and check out all the stylish going ons. We caught  some catwalk shows,perused the pop ups & even discovered some lovely new boutiques. 

Plus size representation was a little thin (ha! a pun) on the ground, but not entirely abscent. Hopefully fatties will have a bit more exposure later in the week. 

Outfit wise, I slipped into my favourite LBD; a style classic. I went bold with red accessories & wrapped myself in faux fur for warmth. I felt rather excellent, a fact my clever sister managed to capture with her fancy camera.
