I was going for the pre-war styles of the 30s, where jackets were more fitted, smaller hats were commonplace, and tweedy browns and greens were more prevalent. This was definitely the hardest outfit, as I find it’s quite hard to find 30s inspired pieces, but I think I did a-ok. I based it all around flat feather cap. Very 30s. I loved this green plaid jacket, which was believe it or not, Juicy Couture and I finished off this utilitarian chic look with the dotty blouse and khaki skirt.
I met Emma Block at Akeela’s birthday party and I got to talking and found out she was an illustrator, who’d just graduated with a 1st. Nice! She told she’d love to be involved, so I sent her off the brief and this was her finished product. She went with the theme of going off on an adventure.
Emma Block is an illustrator specialising in hand drawn and coloured illustration, and is available for commissions. ‘Tea and Cake’ is her first book, published by Hardie Grant, and you can read my review here.
