I wanted my outfit for The Colourful World of Kaffe Fassett to be suitably, well, colourful. I originally planned on making an outfit using some Kaffe Fassett fabrics and other colourful textiles, but life got in the way, and it seemed a lot of effort for something I was unlikely to get high quality pictures of. So I ended up just picking an outfit from my existing wardrobe, and going for a blue colour scheme.

Waaaaay back in June I went on a trip to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. The coach journey there was pretty awful and made me feel very ill, but as soon as I saw the imposing Ashmolean facade I felt a little better. I had been given a ticket for the Cezanne and the Modern exhibition, which was interesting and well put together but not particularly my thing. I still enjoyed looking at Cezanne's use of colour, and there were some very beautiful landscapes and watercolours of trees.
