Dawson Denim: Durability Guaranteed

I met up with my lovely friend Kelly for a cuppa at Marwood  last Wednesday. It’s such a great place to go & catch up, the staff are always so nice & the whole place is covered in random bits of nostalgia with kitsch treasures strewn all over the walls & most of the tables are truly genius. My favourite is a tabletop screwed onto of a pair of mannequins legs. I am sure you get the idea! They do a great mint tea there made with fresh mint & it’s a purse friendly £1.50!

It’s always great to see Kelly.  She is one of the most inspiring & interesting people that I know. She has as of the past year & a half to two years been working on her own Selvedge Denim brand , Dawson Denim, along with her , also lovely, boyfriend Scott.

They produce Japanese Selvedge Denim workwear aprons, which are inspired by the aprons from Kelly’s personal collection & her passion for denim.  The two of them together cut, stitch & finish off all the aprons by hand (with the help of some pretty hefty machines) all in their work shop in Brighton.

Blog Lovin’

Clumsily making my way through into the mysterious world of online blogging – first Twitter & now Bloglovin’ (which is actually pretty handy as it allows you to follow all your favourite blogs in one place, a bit like Facebook it has a dashboard with all new posts) BUT I am sure I don’t have to tell you that I can hear you all chirping ‘I’ve been on Bloglovin’ for about 4 years now – durrr’

'' ...it took her how many minutes to figure out how to claim her blog on Bloglovin'? 25?? No waiiiiii''
