Swishing loot

Last week Madame la Moue and I got a few lovely new things when we went to help the pupils of Patcham High School in Brighton hold a clothes swap. They were the students of my lovely friend Nancy, who had told them about swishing in their life-skills class.

They wanted to have a swish, so we said we'd help them and then we took all their clothes!  I JEST. Of course I do. It was a swish for the STAFF. We took THEIR clothes. Oh, only a few after everyone else had taken what they wanted, don't worry.

We thought we'd do a little photoshoot to show you our loot, but MLM won't let me post the photos of her, so you'll have to make do with the ones of me for now.

I don't know what cruelties MLM has perpetrated on cameras as a species in her past, but whatever it was, they haven't forgotten it. Cameras hate her. They love me, of course, but they hate MLM. It's all highly unfair.

Anyway, here is what I got:

V small floral print silk blouse: DKNY; wool skirt: Oasis; belt: from a previous swish; shoes: MLM's.

Silk chiffon blouse with suede ribbon: All Saints; Navy pinstripe culottes: Next; shoes and belt as above.

In other developments, we have very exciting news about our Valentine's Designer Swish at Pelham House in Lewes on 13th February. Lovely therapist Laura Baden-Powell will be giving complimentary 20 minute treatments to all swishers. Choose from an Indian head massage, a manicure or individual Ooh la la lash extensions! Tickets are limited, so book your place now!

  1. I love the idea of Swishing! How fun, and you got some great stuff!

    My name is Aimee, and I run a little blog called Someone's Gotta Pay (www.someonesgottapay.wordpress.com).

    Toward the middle/end of August, I am planning a little online event on my blog about ethical fashion/clothing. I'm planning to blog about the issues behind clothing, ways to dress ethically, and highlights on ethical shops/companies. I am looking for some guest bloggers to post throughout the event about their experiences or advice seeking ethical clothing. It could be a re-post of something you've already written on your own blog or it could be something new. Please let me know if you're interested, and we can talk about more details. I'd love to have you as part of the event.
