It’s interesting how ideas transform themselves. I sometimes wonder if an idea ever really belongs to me, I often feel like I am simply the means.
Souvent, time dictates, usually because I have too much or not enough of it.
Generally I think too much and easily get caught up in the inspiration part of a project.
It happens before you know it and you realise that rather than actually making, you have spent an hour or two in front of Pinterest or a pile of books, tallying up everything you can and will do, salivating over the possibilities, sliding into inspiration oblivion!
This idea ended up a lot simpler and quicker to achieve than when first imagined, though still having the aesthetic punch I’d hoped for. Regularly it’s the materials that lead the way: use what you have and improvise. The caftan alone is nothing special but teamed up with a few accessories, it looks great.

For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
