5th Avenue Easter Parade

This couple looked absolutely charming at the Easter Parade this year. I wonder if they dress up all the time, or if the parade was an occasion to put on their Sunday best.

Carola at Off Broadway Boutique

This past weekend Carola and I had so much fun playing dress up at Lynn Dell's Off Broadway Boutique. We picked out this wonderful dress and Carola joked that she looked like a geriatric Carmen Miranda. Carola is always so open to trying new things and she was a perfect model for this stunning dress.

Well it's raining again.... Its pretty hard to do outfit posts in the rain, but this is what I wore today to run errands and go shopping, I'd be lying if I said the tassels didn't get in the way ALOT. In a moment of boredom this morning I decided to do a tiger nail art... which actually turned out pretty good (hopefully you guys agree) Its really simple and I used a neon orange from a polish set I bought at Primark with the black Wah Nail pen. I love these Jeffrey Campbell clinic boots that I got in New york a few years ago,  and I think they've actually re-released them now in white also (good times) The hat I got from Ebay for about £2, Id been looking for an unbranded beanie for a while and this one does the job ten times over. Perfect for the absolutely hanus weather we're experiencing right now! Anyways... must dash, I'm rushing out for my absolutely gorgeous Mum's Birthday and need to get ready. Hope you're all having an amazing weekend and don't forget, if you have any questions or anything you'd like to see on Fashion-Fade just tweet me @penelopesarah Lots of Love! xo

Watch: 100 Year Old Ruth Doing Pilates and Stretches


Ruth has more energy than most people half her age. At 100 years old she makes it a point to stretch everyday and attend Pilates classes once a week. Ruth told me that even if she doesn't feel like exercising she tells herself, " Just do it" and it always makes her feel better. Ruth looks elegant no matter what she is doing. She says, "I wear lipstick, even when I have to go to the hospital. You never know who you are going to meet." I am honored to be able to spend time with such an amazing woman and hope she can influence all to stay active.

Lengendary Dancer Jacquie "Tajah" Murdock

It's always an honor and a pleasure to photograph dancer, Jacquie "Tajah" Murdock. Not only does she continue to dance into her 80s, but she also dresses up everyday no matter what. Jacquie grew up in Harlem, always dreaming of being a model and a dancer-She knew at five years old that she wanted to dance. A few years ago The Apollo Theater recognized Jacquie as a legendary dancer and one of her dreams came true. I hope Jacquie can inspire everyone to stay active and never forget their dreams.

Kaleidoscope dreams

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Imagine if there were this many of me in the world...... we'd take over and make everyone wear studs and tassels. (And create world peace.)Photobucket
Poncho H&M, Dip hem top courtesy of AX Paris, studded bra top H&M, Shorts Topshop, shoes Miista, necklace made by me,  rings by me ASTRAEA/ Morocco)

So the weather has taken a major turn for the worse here in England, the sunshine has gone and the April showers and bitterly cold winds are in full force. Whats my reaction to this? Dig out a brightly coloured poncho and throw on my beautiful new top courtesy of AX Paris and prance around. I loved the colour of this top when I received it from the lovely Alex at AX Paris. I've been searching for a top or dress in the perfect shade that doesn't make me look like a little stupid satsuma..... and this top ticks all the boxes! It looks amazing over skinny jeans with a leather jacket thrown over the top, but will also be amazing if we EVER get any sunshine again, but enough about that, as all I ever seem to do is give you guys a very angry update on the British weather. Im so busy right now, as Im doing majorly grown up stuff in my personal life but I promise not to neglect you guys as you're my favourite people ever. Hope you're all ok.... also if anyone knows any good Interior design blogs hook a sistaaa up! Ciao xo
