Being an independent women, ( I've always wanted to be one of those ever since I first heard of Destiny's Child) in business, it's been great befriending other sisters who are doing it for themselves. Okay, I'm going to stop quoting lyrics.
But seriously, it's wonderful to surround yourself with talented people, because you can do swapsies! Much better than the playground ones, our swapsies involve very important handmade things!
My first of hopefully many swapsies with BooBoo Kitty Couture went very well indeed.
Let me show you what I got out of our little deal.....
...A full circle skirt adorned with Olives & Sunflowers. How very mediterranean!
I can tell you, it feels very special wearing something made specifically for you, there's an added excitement everytime you imagine somebody sitting down and creating your beautiful garment from scratch. Considiring that my skirt started out life as....ssshhh....a table cloth! Boo Boo you genius!
Top - Mode Merr
Shoes - Hobbs
No that I had my skirt in hand, I needed to create my side of the swapsie.....
A hair do!
Catching a glimpse of gold in her studio, Boo Boo Kitty showed me the gown that she would be wearing that evening to a Festive party. She needed me to make her hair as marvellous as her outfit. Handmade by herself I may add!
I was in my element creating this Beehive for her. It's proved a very popular style on my instagram and Lucille's Locks page!
So if you too are an independant self employed lady (or man) and would love to play swapsies with me, then you know where I am!!
Love as always, Lucille xx
