margolily is feeling the love

Monday, January 31st, 2011

At home margolily feels the love for Greg Banjo, Pearly Pussy Cat and Morley Tiger Cat. Day to day margolily feels the love for sewing on Sundays, Jarvis Cocker on 6Music, salted caramels and piles of unread books and photo albums and a good find in a charity shop and craft night and Kirrie girls and the Arlington Baths…and margolily has a lot of love. Right now though margolily is feeling the love for Glasgow and most especially the creative Glasgow family within! Margolily has been showing her wares at a few events so far this year and here are some of the super cool designers, vintage collectors and boutiques I’ve been encountering along the way…Ok first up for margolily love are Butler and Taylor – the vintage lasses who have amassed gorgeous crockery and chic tableware to bring to your event and also they have very cool hair! More love to E.Y.I.Love who dedicate themselves to finding out everything you love to design your wedding stationery and anything else you think of in their print studio and also they are lovely and love all kinds of ace things themselves! Next love to MeeMee Couture who will design something wild, something gorgeous, something simple, a  wedding gown, disco shorts, this girl rules and also she was wearing an incredible handmade ruffle/shawl/bolero/scarf affair stitched with glow in the dark thread when I met her! Ooh and double love she also has a very cool sister who has the most beautiful traditional tattoos and more than that spent her last cash bucks on margolily feathers! Yass! Last love, like a last Rolo, goes to Jennie Loof, who introduced margolily to also loved Sylvia at Bold Souls, but also skipped out the door wearing margolily feathers, has the most gorgeous range of clothes margolily has seen and is all round super ace and lent margolily her table!  Sharing the love this weekend Margolily will be at Granny Would Be Proud on Sunday 6th Feb at the Hillhead Book Club xx

Margolily Brides & Bold Souls

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

So…a happy and tired Margolily writes to say a huge big thank you to the Glasgow Girls Wedding Guide organisers! What a day we had at Pollokshields Burgh Hall on Sunday…hundreds of lovely brides and wedding guests with gorgeous wedding plans. Here is just a sprinkling of the exciting ideas margolily heard tell …vintage brooch collections turned into wedding day accessories, subtle accents of french navy, bright splashes of coral, art deco styling, veils for day and ornate margolily headpieces for night, Grecian style dresses, stunning feathered affairs and not to forget giant polka dot bows! Some truly inspired commissions to design for margolily!   

A reminder too that for Margolily fans…I’ll be at the Bold Souls Fashion Pop Up Event this Saturday 29th January – Sub Club 1-8pm. Margolily will have some new jungle inspired vintage headpieces on the go along with lots of other fashionista fun and free hairstyling by the Rainbow Room Folks! Coolio, see you there xx
