I bought this over the weekend...

but ended up feeling not quite sure how or when I would actually wear it, so I thought I could have a go at a muted down version...

Makes you want to go back to Holiday season. Love them both and would wear them in a second.
please someone pick up my jaw...

Alexa rocks.

Anyone else (me) would look bloody ridiculous wearing this outfit, but not her!!

Ohlalaaaa Réré, j'adore!!!!!
The plaid and military and the turquoise ...and the sheep work ridiculously well.

I am into leather...

And Ich liebe the sequin one!
Can't believe (=why am I not even suprised) you managed to have them strike the pose!!!

Dita was a bit fussy but Karl was a darling!!

Oh, by the way, how long have you made the chain?

WHaaaou. love your easy way of always softly daring.
Absolutely love the Chnoukster....

You're too kind.

It is written it in bold red underligned big caps in my agenda.

March 7 :
JPG at Target!!!!!!!!!!

If those three intials seems cryptic to you, go there.

Je suis verte!!
I want the Trench Coat. Now.
He did a collection for 'La Redoute' years ago and it was beautiful. In fact I got a 'marinière' at the time and I must have given it away to someone cos I can't find it anywhere. Why, oh why...

On this side of the pond we have this to look forward to

Rykiel for H&M, opens Feb 20th...

Not bad either!!!!!!!!!
My fave for both creaters have to be Sonia's short sleeve yellow cardi, or the dress in the middle (above picture) and JPG's white Tee with the eyes and sequins lips.
And the trench coat, you're right. But otherwise, Jean-Paul's collection is a bit too literally retro for me. I just don't want to dress like people from videos I watched when I was in middle school. Yes, I'm that old.
I mean, nothing against revivals, but I like to look ahead : now and onwards....

Valentine who?

Flip Book from katie sokoler on Vimeo.

Being not typically dying for Valentine's Day celebrations, I must admit this simple project really stole my heart.

Stumbled upon this Doshi Levien sofa (they'll kindly forgive me for pasting their image here) and wanted to have it immediately in my living room, only to seat accross the room and look at it in awe. endlessly.

Blogueuses Influentes!!

In my book, this is the coolest thing that could ever happen to me. André, the shoe maker, asked some 'blogueuses influentes' to design a pair of shoes. The shoes will be in the shops at the beginning of March. These are my personal favourites. You can read more about this here and here.
Next best thing that could happen to me: designing a bag. So Mr Longchamp, Mr Hermès, Mr Dreyfus, Mr Darel, if your reading this, feel free to contact me.

Atomically crazy.
Well, why waiting Reg?
What about I'll give the shoes a go (even though it's too late and I wasn't really asked...) and you'll make an 'exercice de style', subject : design your bag?

Ready, set....

I can't do a worse job than Adjani for Lancel.
Sorry Isa but it's a terrible bag. You got the proportions completely wrong.

I just had a look at the Lancel website and apparently there's a waiting list for one of these... Yeah right...
N'est pas Birkin qui veut!

Bibs and Bows

After seeing Europe being now invaded by the feathers head embellishments (fews months after the US), I have the feeling it won't be long before european blogs get overwhelmed with bib necklaces.
(vey classical quiet example by GB Couture by Emily & Ashley)

So, here is a Martha tutorial to make one. Browse etsy to find tons of yoyo, silk flowers, zippers etc.

And to complement this very romantic, 'pastel girls love satin and silk' look, you have to work the bow : on a clutch, a brooch, as a belt, on top of your shoulder.
Personally I can't resist
that fellow from DavieandChiyo :

Here again, Martha comes to the rescue with a little bow lexicon.

Can't decide? tulle and crystal or silk flowers? Layered loop or winged knot? I'll just say remember a week has seven different days!

The necklace is to die for. I've been meaning to have a go at a bib necklace for a while. Watch this space. There might be one on its way...
And the colour scheme... brilliant!!
