This just landed in my inbox from Barneys and blew my mind. It’s so much more about style than fashion. Here are my faves from Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s selection. All three would be welcome additions to my daily life. - Images from Barneys.
Once in a while she’d give me some lilacs to take home and they were...– Richard Brautigan
Yay! Today I finally have a new home to call my own. After months of living out of suitcases I am so craving the comfort of my own little corner of the world. Our little family of three, including our newly acquired puppy, is as happy as can be. So it’s off for a weekend of furniture shopping and general nesting. Cannot wait! - Image from Live on coffee and flowers.
yes she can.
It’s not often I feel the urge to post red carpet looks, because honestly, who doesn’t look great with that much primping and preening. But I have to say that the lovely Ms Kruger has swept me away with this one. Tousled natural hair, minimal jewelry and makeup and a knockout dress. This is the Versace I remember, made for bombshells and party girls, who were all enamoured with...
Gearing up for a beach holiday. Can’t wait to sun myself and completely relax. In just a day or two it’s easy to forget your troubles and remember how lucky you really are. - Image for Brigitte from Decade Diary.
Getting so inspired by the simplest things from Caroline. Unruly ponytails, ripped denim and oversized knits. My favourites. - Images from Caroline’s Mode.
Having limited access to great shopping has been more of a blessing than a curse. Purging from aimless consumerism is so much more refreshing than any other cleanse I’ve been on. It’s made me reconsider what I purchase and why. It’s also made me work with what I’ve got and put together some more unusual looks. And that has been fun! Like these supergas with a sexy...
It’s been almost 6 months since I’ve worn foundation. Now it feels completely unnecessary. It smothers and asphyxiates your skin a day at a time. These days I’d rather toy with a swipe of matte lip colour or a flick of ebony liner. I don’t mind if I don’t look so flawless because it’s all just a mirage. I’d rather just roll with it. - Images...
Sometimes the best part of the cinema experience comes after you leave. Some films just seem to haunt you and hang in the air for a while, making you question what really happened and how you feel about it. Shame, the critically acclaimed Steve McQueen directed masterpiece really puzzled me. At first it was the graphic shock of witnessing someone so deeply entrenched in an addiction…so...
what goes around.
If I could turn back time and escape to the past, I’d got to the roaring 20s in a heartbeat. Whether its Fitzgerald books or Cole Porter tunes or silk turbans it’s always been my favourite. Full of frivolity and fun, but somehow it always comes of a little costumey when I try it in real life. But sidestepping a little to the left, blending old with new, Benah seems to have got...
Having a vision is a really wonderful thing. Giving birth to a unique idea of your own and hopefully watching it grow and evolve into reality. For me, creatively, it’s my reason to get up every morning and get on with the hard work at hand. But the thing about new ideas is that a lot of people just don’t get it. How do you defend what instinctively you know to be true? How do you...
I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me...– Maurice Sendak
Life in Mexico is full of many exciting things. Great food, wonderous handicrafts, sun and sand and the best farmer’s markets one could even imagine. But there is something missing. A long lost over of mine you could say. A glass of rosé is proving almost impossible to track down. Some might say it’s a mere trifle but one of my great pleasures in life was sitting back and...
way back when.
Remember this? Sometimes things feel like forever ago but really they’re only a photograph away. - Image of the Olsen twins from Google.
Right now, things are all a bit of a blur. I can feel the tides of change wash over me as I move between things that were planned and things that will happen. Nothing seems certain, but within that haze there is endless possibility. I feel like Vianne in Chocolat, moved only by the clever north wind, who can only be satisfied by change. What will come still remains a mystery, but at least...

so close but so far.
Feeling very much homesick with all the MBFWA coverage floating about. Tamila Purvis, in my eyes at least, is one of the absolute most talented stylists out there. Am head over heels for her cool girl aesthetic and seeing her take on the Zimmermann girl made my head spin. Definitely my favourite show to date. - Image from Zimmermann SS1213 show via Pedestrian.
So very in love. The Snowdon Blue collection just hit Acne and to say I’m enamoured is an understatement. Perfect cuts, just the right hint of detail and the most mellow, glorious palette of blues. Cannot decide which ones to save myself. - Images from Acne Studios.
better than imagination.
Love this little collage from Vogue France. It’s always inspiring to see new looks strut down the catwalk, but there’s something about them that always seems a little forced and a step away from reality. In my eyes, the more three dimensional real life translation is always less forced and more fun. - Image from Vogue.fr
