January has been so brilliant so far, I am in love with 2014! I spent last week working hard to turn my thoughts into concerts, making new friends and waking up on rooftops. On Thursday I stayed up very late watching Spirited Away and sewing white sailor stripes onto this dress ready for my day off on Friday. I met James for breakfast before he went to work at the Southbank Centre. I wandered home through parks and pigeons along a route that’s been familiar to me since I was about 15; I was quite sleepy but it’s nice just to wander these familiar roads when I get the chance. London feels so crisp at this time of year.

This dress is from The Whitepepper and was a present from James. I really like the floppy sailor collar. It came with blue stripes but to me “sailor” means “Sailor Moon” and so of course I felt the need to copy her collar, hence the additional white stripes. What do you think? I am missing James terribly as he has gone away for the week. I’m quite a nomadic and wandering kind of person but I share everything with James and every time he goes away I feel slightly adrift. If I’m a sailor then James is definitely my first mate!
