26th of Blogtober's Fashion Forward

Before I get all 'fashionable', I want to thank those of you who've already left suggestions here on how to draw my giveaway winners :-) I am a little concerned that maybe Amy means I should freeze The Hamster...?! And Vic is so right, he is indeed a The Duracell Hamster - he does stop occasionally, but mainly because he's just run into a wall! I could maybe see where he is on the big piece of paper after 1 minute of rolling, or something... So any more suggestions will be welcome, thank you!

OK, now for this week's Fashion Forward :-) I've decided to go totally with a Joe Browns theme this week. I just _love_ their stuff!! Indeed, I'm wearing a JB top right this minute! I also love how they present the clothes in their catalogues. Mostly I just like the relaxed, funky vibe of the clothes, and how comfortable they are to wear :-) Here's a bit of a JB medley:











This is kind of my wishlist from their latest catalogue (hint, hint to The Doctor if you're reading this darling...!) Except that actually, it's my edited wishlist, as I figured this post was already extremely picture-heavy so I really ought to stop at 15 items... But oh, I love them all!! Most especially that floral peak hat on the top row, and the grey tunic with the pointy hem (great for work, with black woolly tights and knee high black boots), and also the pinky purply floral hooded top for casual wear, and - You get the idea!

I realise I haven't done a proper 'craft' post for a few days - that would be because I still haven't felt inspired to get the craft iron out. But I shall get and do that NOW (even though I don't feel like it) 'cos I really want to get on with those notebooks! So even if I don't manage to post the notebook tutorial I mentioned, at least I should have the notebooks themselves to share with you soon :-)

oh dear god, I want EVERYTHING in your post!

I love Joe Browns too, but managed to avoid them this season. Until now. Better go check that piggy bank...

Love all the tops! Stopped by to check out your blog (I'm in Shimelle's class), and yours is so advanced I love it!

Jen Martakis said...

Ooooo! I love that hat too! What fun stuff!

Clair said...

I too am in love with the pointy hemmed grey top - it's gorgeous and a little bit steampunk. You know that if you could just add in a few pairs of trousers or the odd skirt you'd have a capsule wardrobe? Bit chilly otherwise! x

Katherine said...

Clair's right, that pointy hemmed tunic is definitely very steampunk! Love it!

Every thing here is going on my wishlist, especially the stripy hat with cute ear flaps...may even go with my new fringe!

Ooooh, I love those sweaters! I'm off to check out the rest of the store now. They're completely new to me.

Weza said...

My heart rate has shot through the roof. I need those clothes!!!

Pretty Neat Designs said...

The third hat and the second necklace are now on my wish list! I've never heard of the store before, but they sure have great stuff!

Amy said...

Oops, sorry Mel. Not my intention to infer that the hamster should visit the deep freeze! Only that the animal idea was one that is very popular.
I like the middle necklace and the grey top with the cirlcle motif - by the way how do you get these pictures up to your blog ..... learner here!

ohhh, cool fashion items! I especially like that grey loose-knit shirt in the top middle - unfortunately, it doesn't get cold enough here in Florida for hats. ~april

Gennifer said...

So, I've never heard of Joe Browns, but I love that aqua and green necklace. Which is better for myself? Avoiding them all together, or clicking the link.

I'm clicking.

Emily said...
