Dedicated follower of fashion

Yoohoo Friday and a warm welcome to all my bloggy friends. Today's title is in honour of the fact that I HAVE to go clothes shopping today or tomorrow - bleh! As you may have gathered I hate clothes shopping, which my 15 year old self would probably have fallen down in sheer fright and disbelief of the fact that you can grow out of the love for it. Crafty stash shopping is a completely different story, obviously!. This is in aid of having to get a new suit for the upcoming royal (not) wedding of my cousin Paul at St Paul's Cathedral in a few weeks.

Any tips greatly received on avoiding the situation totally (believe me I have tried t'internet) and failing that recovery from the ordeal LOL!

Have a super weekend and see you on Monday xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Love you much and cheer & wishes.
Ink: Black stazon, creamy caramel and versamark.
Card stock: Whisper white, pretty in pink and kraft.
Misc: Satin ribbon, clear embossing powder, petals & paisleys paper (retired).
Tools used: 1" circle punch, scallop border punch, 1/16" circle punch and sewing machine.

Unfortunately, I have no advice for you - I hate clothes shopping too. - Lynne

Mmm not my favourite thing to do either so sending my sympathy. I agree Craft shopping is far more exciting browsng the SU catty especially. Smashing card too honey very pretty.

O.M.G!!!! How amazing does the pink look with the Kraft wowee, love it hun, stunning card!

Regarding the shopping, how about going to one of the large department stores that offer a personal shopper, they'll do all the running around for you & help you put things together?

Best of luck & have a good weekend

Oo poor you Emma. Hope you manage to find something for 'the' wedding. I don't like clothes shopping either so I don't envy you. Go to Monsoon they'll kit you out!!!! My fav shop in a crisis! The girls are really helpful too. They kitted me out for my son's wedding and for a couple of other do's.
Good luck.
Love the card by the way.
