My big sister, a keen fashion historian and seamstress, always wanted me to keep a daily fashion diary that would serve as a record for future generations of everyday dress in our lifetime.
Sadly, my sister died in 2011, before our project came to fruition. This blog is for her; I'm just sorry that I didn't start it sooner. I hope she would approve.
Date: Sunday 29th July 2012 Place: Haddon Hall, Peak District
To celebrate the end of my holiday, my mum and I decided to take an overnight trip to the beautiful Peak District. We spent yesterday exploring ancient Haddon Hall - it has been used for filming a wealth of period dramas, so parts of it were quite familiar. The Other Boleyn Girl, three adaptations of Jane Eyre, Pride & Prejudice and Elizabeth are just a few of the films which have featured the house! If you visit the Peak District, I can highly recommend a trip to the hall, to see the lovely gardens if nothing else.
I wore my apricot metallic sweater with slim taupe trousers and pink ballet pumps, and accessorised with a blowsy corsage and pearly bracelet.
