THE TRANSITIONAL DRESS

Ugh. I haven't managed to post much the last week or two, partly because I was working at Salon Int'l all weekend and didn't have time to shoot any outfits, but also because I've been suffering some pain and discomfort lately due to what doctors suspect is gallstones. Oh, joy!

So, when I went to meet a friend for lunch, I set up the tripod at home and snapped a few quick shots of what I wore. Now that the weather is actually cooler, this dress is the perfect piece to transition gently from summer to autumn, without it being too much of a shock. Wearing shorts and a tee one day, then suddenly having to switch to jeans, boots and a jacket...what the -?!

Anyway, the next time I write, I'll be far, far from London...can you guess where?

BRITISH HAIRDRESSING AWARDS 2014

Euriental - London fashion blog, British Hairdressing Awards 2014 London hairdresser of the year entry

I've had 3 very busy days, prepping and working at Salon International. Three shows in 2 days and a whole lot of hair tugging and styling, but it was a fun whirlwind of a long weekend.

Anyway, now that Salon International is over for this year, I am able to post one of Lucie's entries for the British Hairdressing Awards this year. This set didn't go through to the finals, which is why I've got the all-clear to share this photo now, but the other entry we shot (in the Avant Garde category) did, so that one will have to stay under wraps for now!

Wearing: Joseph cardigan, Guess jeans, top and boots from Shanghai, Lola & Grace earrings. I can't find the cardigan available online (I think it's a previous season), but I found some similar styles and options. Although they're showing in different colours below, they are available in dark green.



This is a man's cardigan. I was rooting around the Gold Label rails of TK Maxx last weekend (favourite designer discount store in London, by the way), collecting potentials on my arm, then trying them on one by one and being left disappointed. That one doesn't look as good on, this one doesn't fit, etc. So, I sighed, accompanied Jarv up the stairs to check out the men's section, and caught a glimpse of this heavy, thick knitted cardigan I saw on the rack. 

It was huge - way too big for me. Oh so comfortable, though, and a shade of green I just adore, so with a grin I said, "I'm getting this!" and marched on over to the checkout. And, may I add, it was a ridiculous bargain at only 10% of the £500 price tag.

I may look into shrinking it a little, just so I don't look like I've left the house wrapped in a duvet.

PS. Thanks and good luck to those who have entered the Lola & Grace giveaway so far! If you haven't yet, there's still time to enter here.
