Unisex Utopia - Women & Shirts by Leanne Cloudsdale

Unisex Utopia - Women & Shirts by Leanne Cloudsdale

Mum always stood out from the others waiting at the school gates, she cut a lithe figure in Oxford bags, unruly hair twisted up like a brioche on the top of her head; it was such a contrast to the chattering mass of bubble perms in garish pencil skirts and scuffed stilettos.

Leila's Shop
