Cath Kidston: not the domestic goddess you think she is?

Apparently not.

““I am not a domestic goddess. I’m always riveted to know who these domestic goddesses really are. Where are they all?”, she told the Telegraph’s fashion editor Lisa Armstrong at Hay festival. (via the Telegraph)

I reckon this is an EXCELLENT opportunity to post this picture: Cath Kidston inspired nails (via Victoria’s Vintage)

Supermarket Sarah for Traid Remade Dalston

Supermarket Sarah, the WONDERFUL lady whose “walls” of stuff pop up all over London and beyond has just collaborated with charity Traid (textile recycling for aid and international development) to put together their Dalston shop window. Doesn’t it look ace?

Traid is a cracking charity that sell really good quality second hand clothes, and make the non-decent ones into new clothes – they’re the ultimate upcyclers.

Thanks to Sarah for these pics. I interviewed her in her Hackney home for Psychologies once. What a lovely day that was.
