shake your tail feather...

i had the pleasure of spending a very sunny afternoon in covent garden yesterday with some lovely fellow bloggers. jill, jackie, kaz, vanessa, hedvig, michelle and i ate cupcakes all afternoon at the insanely gorgeous ella's bakehouse. a compulsory event when meeting fellow bloggers is photos... there are always lots. this means you better not be in a rush to get anywhere because we move like snails: pausing to stare into shop windows, chatting to men with infamous dog-cats who have facebook pages, stopping strangers to photograph them... it is great though and pretty hilarious. we decided to do some compulsory shooting in the square where i was directed to shake my tail feather in front of what felt like the entire british public. i'm sure no one was actually even looking and, let's be honest, i enjoyed showing off my new 'rah-rah' skirt (that's what jill called it all day long). apologies for my slightly geeky faces and attempted hip shakes but, in a skirt that moves like this one, its hard not to try and shake it...
p.s. thanks to Jill for taking these photos of me with my generous friend Andy's camera (that he kindly let me borrow) - also, if you haven't seen Jill's post on this outfit I'm wearing definitely check it out... she snapped a beautiful shot of all the little laser cut leaves in motion.
