Sarah Owen and Lily Allen
Firstly I've decided to only post once a day from now on. I have enough trouble keeping up with all the blogs I read let alone expecting anyone to follow me more than once a day.
My good friend Sarah Owen and her sister Lily Allen opened their gorgeous boutique Lucy in Disguise last year. I went along to the opening and have been meaning to go back and do a post on it ever since. I can't wait to have a rummage around in there! See my pictures of the opening HERE.
Lucy in Disguise and another of my friends, the hugely talented John Hassay's company Skinflicks (he's responsible for stacks of pop videos, most famously all of Fatboy Slim's - the Christopher Walken one is one of my all-time favourites) have commissioned director and photographer Marie Kristiansen to make a short film at their boutique. It has been styled and produced by Sarah and Lily.
The film explores the theme of time travel and the fictional character Lucy getting ready for a night out. It takes you on a magical fashion tour from the 80's to the 20's. Part of the inspiration for the short has come from Lily and Sarah's favourite Playstation Move game Buzz Ultimate Music Quiz champion.
I love it, check it out here
For anyone interested in filmmaking there's also a little film of behind the scenes HERE.
The show Lily Allen - Rags to Riches is on Channel 4 tonight at 10pm. It was filmed a year ago when they were setting up LID and Lily's not happy with it as she feels she is a completely different person now. And she hates the title.
Lily says "I'm inclined to ask you not to watch it cause quite frankly I'm embarrassed. On the other hand I want you all to watch it so you can see how the press coverage has been totally sensationalised and quotes taken out of context. It was meant to be a show abour two sisters starting a business"
I will watch it and of course Lily's a totally different person after the year she's had. Don't worry Lily, I really don't think anyone will judge you, you're lovely xxx

One more thing - here's one of my favourite pictures of Sarah walking through a field at a festival one of our friends organised. My lovely friend and ex-flatmate Sam took the picture. I've had many brilliant and bonkers nights with Sarah at lots of impromptu parties at my house and hers. I think she looks like someone from the Sixties or Seventies here, certainly not someone who's been at a festival all weekend! She always looks beautiful.
Can't wait to see you soon gorgeous girl xxx
