Undercover Musings

I have been quite the busy bee these last couple of weeks! 

With my job it's sort of a given around fashion week that things go a bit mental (I work at a hair and make up agency), but what with the mens collections showing in London this season, we didn't have quite the usual craziness of booking flights to Milan for everyone - phew! 

I also got to go to my first fashion show, which was just as incredible as I imagined! Our agency represent the amazing Wendy Rowe, who as well as being make up artist to the stars, is the Artistic Consultant for Burberry Beauty. This means that she heads the make up team at the shows, and kindly invited us to watch the SS14 menswear show. I've popped a couple of pictures on my instagram, but it really was just so fantastic! 

In other news, my brother came back from Canada this week - yay! The lucky bugger has been travelling for the last three months, from Toronto to Ontario, Montreal, Quebec and even squeezing in a trip across the border to New York, I am extremely jealous! 

So yes, after these busy couple of weeks, I felt I deserved a bit of a chilled out Sunday, with a read of the new Frankie accompanied by an extremely yummy smoothie.

My sister and I went to see Populaire at the cinema today. It was such a lovely thing to do on a Sunday, sitting in a dark room as the beautiful French language played about our ears. The film itself was also quite wonderful, in particular the enviably stunning fifties dresses.

To get me in the mood I popped on this full skirted cream shirt dress from Topshop that I got last summer, along with my new heeled sandals (I think they may be glued to my feet) and some mustard socks (sandals and socks - oh no!) and a navy Zara cardi to keep off those cinema air conditioning chills. 

I love these little videos below that I found on! They have such a fifties feel, but with a little bit of cheekiness added in for good measure.
