From The Archive: 2013

With magazine placements on the side, 2013 was the last year I juggled blogging as a side gig. Things get a bit girlier in the style department too, with a lorra love for the sixties and a 'hive!

After spotting a certain pair of shorts on Lazy Oaf this summer (hesitating, and them selling out in every size but XS- which even me on an optimistic day wouldn’t squeeze into) I began my hunt for the perfect novelty fruit related pair of shorts- which, even in this meloncholy weather (see what I did?)- never cease to brighten up a dull day- even better if the temperature co-operates! Plus, heck, isn’t cute novelty clothing the thing that makes the world go round, and wardrobes happy? (I’m sure this lady has a thing or two to say about it, too).

After hunting high and low (apparently Sainsburys only sell real Watermelons) I spotted these cheeky numbers on my pal Chloe’s Lee Fest stall. Coming from the talented babe that is Miss Pestell– creator of the awesome CLOCLOTHES– these fruity shorts ticked all of the boxes. Plus, her site is pretty nifty too. Not only can you buy these shorts (and a heck load of other dip and tie dyed Free People inspired numbers), but can customize your own t shirts (which by my standards is a pretty good way of building your wardrobe) as well as picking up a few accessories and twosies while at it. Pretty blooming good hey? You know what to do…
