Family Affairs Spring Summer 11
Sometimes I get annoyed with how predictable my penchant for super girly styling is – come on Carrie, another hazy photoshoot you love with pretty girls in pretty dresses posing in tall grass? Yup, guilty. I suppose when you find a style that suits you it seems sensible to stick with it, but I think my love for Family Affairs goes a little deeper. When a brand taps into something you love, season after season, you know you’ve struck gold, right?
It’s not only the floaty dresses that I adore, but the Family Affairs girl, and the fictitious world she lives in too. Unfortunately I don’t get to spend a lot of time hanging around in wheat fields (you’ll usually find me on a bus, at a desk or asleep at the moment) but their lookbooks always allow for a bit of escapism – who wouldn’t want to be gliding around a park in the sun right now? x
