Last week, something very nice happened. Irish fashion designer Eilis Boyle said that she liked my blog. This made me very happy indeed, because Eilis is one of my favourite Irish designers. She’s very aware and devoted to fashion and craftsmanship (and she happens to have a wonderful blog of her own). So, I MUST be doing something right….
Through her, Madeleine of In New York Paris Tomorrow contacted me and asked me if I’d like to do a guest post. This was somewhat of a double whaamy, because I also love Madeleine’s blog. It’s an insiders view on fashion that is open, non-pretentious, thoughful and full of personal fashion memories as well as the best style-related news. I feel ashamed for using the word chuffed because it reminds me of Thomas the Tank Engine (don’t ask) but I was incredibly chuffed that she had asked me.
Here’s some very kind words that Madeleine said about my blog.
The Licentiate blog is stylish and intelligent; relishing views of fashion and its inhabitants with humor, kindness and honesty. I fell in love with her consideration of Anna Piaggi and Tavi Gevinson as kindred souls; of course she is correct and not bogged down by preconceptions.
Thank you so much for having me.
