This skirt is magic; it always makes it rain. I’ve had it for about six years and it’s never failed -even as I was taking these pictures it started to drizzle!
I should probably send it to some hot continent with a water shortage, but then maybe it only works in England…
I love it, anyway. When you’re stood still it looks like it’s just plain grey, then you take a step and all these mismatched blue/green fabrics splash out.
(The shot on the steps was my boyfriend messing around, but the pleats all show so I decided to keep it – excuse the crazy face! )
I carry you with me into the world,
into the smell of rain
& the words that dance between people
& for me, it will always be this way,
walking in the light,
remembering being alive together
