Hiding Under the Stairs


Navy Dress - A\Wear
Black Cardigan - Zara
Black Tights - Can't remember, probably M&S
Lace Flats - A Present from New Look
Trench Coat - A\Wear
Bag - Rediscovered under the stairs
Red/Multicoloured Scarf - George's St. Arcade years ago

A few months ago I was looking for something in the cupboard under the stairs and I found my very first schoolbag. Its a really old fashioned leather satchel - fairly small because I was tiny when I first got it - and it comes complete with my name neatly inscribed on the inside in biro, a star sticker and some pencil parings. I was delighted to find it because I just presumed it had been passed on to some little cousin long ago. It wasn't actually a very practical schoolbag for a little child because it doesn't have any shoulder straps on it, which is probably why it survived under the stairs for so long. But now I've just tied a scarf through the top and it has a new life as a very practical shoulder bag for a slightly bigger little girl.

How special to find something so neat right under your nose. Love the dress & flats--all of the texture is great.

That bag is wonderful. I love the snippets of photos we see here. Feet shots are always so wonderfully naive looking to me too.

I like your blog title. It's like the opposite of mine. We should do business.
