Bloggers meet

Meeting someone familiar when you are miles away from home is always a pleasant surprise. Even more so, if this someone you only knew till then through posts on her blog! Vicki from Magpie Girl (left) was at the Prêt-à-Porter too and after two days of texting we managed to meet face to face. She is really lovely and wish we had time for more than a quick coffee at the press lounge! At the moment she is also posting about that trip, you can check out how it was for her here and here. While exchanging notes and views on the exhibition, I found particularly interesting one of the brands she came to see, French HUG AN'CO. Seems like the rounded tulip shapes and sophisticated pleats and cuts they were into are going to be big next Spring:


I found the collage on their wall rather inspiring...

Finally, Vicki passed on an award to me the other day and I am ever so flattered:

Seeing the eye-lashes on the bottom of this image, Vicki's amazing Girls Aloud eye-lashes come to mind. It was one detail I didn't notice at first (looked so natural!) but were such a nice touch!! It is not easy to choose whom to pass it on to since all the blogs on my right column are daily reads to me...

I'm giving it to Life in Athens, Fashion Paths and Las Niñas y Los Niños who I also got to meet in person recently, just like Vicki...
