Oxfam Fashion blogger

I'm Cassie, a late-twenty-something who refuses to grow up. I've been a student for most of my adult life and run a fairy shop www.TutusWingsandPrettyThings.com where I make and sell tutus for fairies of all ages. You can mostly find me behind the lens of a camera, feverishly tip-tapping away at my laptop or giggling on the sofa with my wonderful husband. Visit my blog at www.cassiefairy.com
