Cherry Blossoms

Tired today! I think its the weather!!

Enjoyed the chance to wear my snakskin Joseph cowboy boots though!

Also stopped my local officers for a chat, (I love the fact they still have mounted patrol) they kindly told me where my nearest stable is. I think I will go and help out on Sundays now the weather is perking up! They made my day! along with all the cherry blossoms being in bloom. Dusted pink streets?  Perfect!

Summer Breeze in your hair...

I am considering buying a new car. Having sold my beloved megane (big arsed one) when I moved to the City this weather is making me want to hit the open road again.... in my Megane I did not have the luxury of a sun roof so this time I am going to get 1/2 a convertable!!

Can you guess what car it is?

Watch this space.

Green Jewel Tones

Today the sun was shining!! So I decided to wear my new silk tank with my capri pants and burnt gold loafers. I seem to be liking jewel tones and rustic metals. the detail on my top is super sweet and makes it a nice office to social number :0) I found a sweet copy of a D&G watch I liked but didnt buy because it had a cream strap! It looks like a big gem stone. I found this copy in Oasis for less than a 3/4 of the price with a much better strap!
Ooh la la!!

Strange but true!

Don't ask me why I love this dress?! but I really do!
Yes! thats right! It's not a pattern. It is covered in frogs, ugly big brown frogs to top it off!! and if you look even closer it is actually pinstriped white fabric.
(love the gold buttons)

This Weeks Wish List.

Nice spin on a timeless classic (padded shoulders and linen)


Usually Rayon makes me feel slightly nauseas, in this case I would feel like a beached mermaid!! 
Yummy!
Espadrilles but sexier!! Love the elastic straps. Ankle ties never really work for me,
either to loose or cutting off my blood circulation


Picture it, chilly sunday evening, sipping a glass of wine in the garden silky dress starting to feel less silky more icy! Barby is cold but you won't be once your wrapped in this!


Linen Breton Top, Salmon Dress - Sandro £100 / £215

Wonderful Wedding

I went to an amazing wedding, the lovely couple got just the day they deserved.
Sunny, warm April day, set on lovely grounds.
The whole affair bought a tear to my eye!

I d├ębuted my Burberry Prosum dress.
This is defiantly going to be my go to dress for many years!
I like that it is navy not black and it is utterly chic with layers and layers of stiff silk.
There is a funny story behind this dress, loving found for me by my partner in crime, Frida.....

It's that time again..

Anyone who has been reading my blog since the beginning, may vaguely remember one of the first posts I ever did.
It was on my return from Paris and my great rediscover of the simple Espadrille! I had been tottering around the vintage shops in Paris in the height of summer crying out to my boyfriend in pain and trying to explain the sensation of the balls of your feet being on fire! we were in Galleries La Fayette, he promptly dragged me over to the flat shoe section and threw a cream pair of espadrilles at me! I was sold and saved in an instant!

Here are my picks for 2010!!





Mymu espadrilles £85 - £110.00 @ Net a Porter
(Mine where 20.00 EUR by the way!! May just invest in some gold fabric paint)

Sunshine, petals and leaves

Went to pick up my espresso machine on Saturday enjoyed the London sunshine then met up with my friends for afternoon tea!
I love wearing a bright eyeliner only on the bottom of the eye, it really looks cool! Urban Decay do the most striking and true to colour liners, they are nice and soft so they don't scrape like some cheaper liners.

Early Friday!



I am not going to be able to update tomorrow night so thought I would do an extra post tonight.
Found this  amazing dress at H&M a few weeks ago its the sweetest little thing..
Its narrowly pleated all over and the frills have wire running through them so they wont flop as soon as you sit down, and they are super structured

Off to the movies...



Tonight I am going to see Tilda Swinton in "I Am Love" a melodramatic love drama set in Milano!
 Looks good and in any case I think Tilda is an amazing actress!!
