CATCH-UP (AKA HOW ARE WE IN OCTOBER ALREADY?!)
I feel like it has been a while since I last sat down to punch out an ‘outfit’ based blog post. Of course, hopefully, it doesn’t read this way to you guys. Truth be told, I work on a lot of projects in advance so by the time I finally get to hit the publish button on them, I have already forgotten how long ago we shot them.
Actually, I counted the number of projects I have on-the-go at the moment and I hesitate to say that it is over the 50 mark. Perhaps I am saying yes too often, but that is to carry me through toward mid-November. These, of course, are anything from working in fashion, beauty, travel and lifestyle projects. You will see them in due course. Can anyone please tell me where this year has gone? Please??
INSPIRATION COMES WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT
Without being a complete Debbie Downer, I am pretty sure all of this stems from recently losing my Nanna, who meant the world to me. In the days after we lost her, I was tasked with scanning some 70 photos from the albums and putting together a slideshow honouring her life to play at the service. Looking at someone’s life summarised in that way, really made those special moments stand out. It gave me a lot to think about. While I will admit, I am struggling with the loss, I have never felt more determined.
After I returned home, I had a renewed plan and decided to put energy and focus into my work, which has been an exciting and rewarding distraction.
Though named Inspiring Wit, it was definitely a case of my Nanna, Jeanette, inspiring me.

ONE SHOULDER RUFFLE FIX
As for this one shoulder one sleeve ruffle top? I guess you can see I am embracing the whole ruffle and one shoulder trend. Just when I vowed not to embrace more trends I go and fall for something new. Well, this one is just a fun summer top, made from t-shirt jersey fabric that lends itself to being worn with your trusted denim.
It’ll be a handy one come summertime, though it does (at least on me) require a lot of double sided tape front and back to keep it on. (Size down if you can for this one, it is a generous size). If anyone knows of a good double sided tape for sensitive skin, please let me know! I am allergic to the glue of regular bandaids and Hollywood tape, so I am looking out for your advice!
