A new plan

Snow in march. 
how mad is that.

My outfit today 
is called  sombre. 

I had a decision to make.
and i need  no distractions.
so i decided to descend into the madness of a new project!!

The shawl i bought from a designer at her graduate show a few years ago.
My coat from Lucy's
Hat Lucy's .

Bag from river island and customised.

Boots from Lucy's.

This is where the shop is.
We are in the basement.
MAYFLY are on the ground floor
They sell amazing crafts and accessories.

there is a tattooist on the top floor
cafe is on the first floor 
it has recently become available to let.
i have decided to take it for the summer. 
i am 25 years selling vintage in this area .
i am taking the coffee shop on as a kind
of celebration of that.

this is a  big project.
it's quite scary but i want to do something 
to mark the passing of time.
if you have any ideas or you make lovely cakes 
so let me know.

i got this package in the post 
all the way from Australia.
from desiree
i love the head band .
i need a bit of sunshine though
to show it off properly.

some wise words from galaxy.

i'm off to ta dah! tuesday

Ugh, if you disable anonymous comment, love, you won't get trash like the above!

Right. Love your snazzy bag improvement!!! Fabularse!
Your shawl is quite spectacular, as are these pix despite the snowy nasty weather!
It certainly will be a challenge, running a coffee shop as well, but I reckon you'll be awesome at it! It'll be an extension of the shop, and all the wonderful people who come into the shop will need your take on refreshments! A scary, but exciting challenge!

This is madly divine styling here! Top to toes. The boggle-ball shawl, mmm. The bag. All.

You look great, the shawl is a masterpiece and so the customized bag, I love all the precious fabrics and bows that you added to have an unique piece! The boots are awesome too, I'd kill to visit your shop, it's one of those places that I see often in my dreams and you are doing a great job in keeping it alive and interesting as it is.
I wish you all the best for your future projects!
Love xxxxx

Looking fabulous, that's how you do the never-ending Winter! Very exciting news about the new let. I will have a recipe coming up probably next week that may be perfect. Congrats on 25 years in business and here's to the next!

Och, when will this snow madness end?
You look absolutely terrific, who said winter makes for drab & dull outfits...you are the unequivocal proof that they are talking out of their backsies! That shawl is amazing and I've fallen in love with it, can't stop looking at it in fact, its got me spellbound.
Great jazzing up of the handbag too, it looks great.
I wish you tremendous luck with your new project, I am sure you will make it a great success :)
It's not only your shawl that steals my heart, your lovely doggies do too, adorable...xXx

Whoa whoa whoa! I Do have ideas! I am a coffee shop girl through and through! I LOVE coffee cafe culture and have worked my life in it- so I am very excited for you! I wish I lived close so I could run your counter, truly! Vintage and coffee? Lordy you've ripped past the pages of my diary and into my dreams. Next you'll tell me you're building a house with grass on the roof.

Happy Anniversary too by the way! That is some accomplishment!
