Monday Finery

I've had a fine start to the week so about we glance at some finery with this editorial lensed by Cuneyt Akeroglu for W Magazine's September issue.

I'm all for some delicate, fine jewellery to spark up some interest in the week ahead, what say you?

I love those brooches below and the rings in the last image are just gorgeous!

In The Schedule

Looking forward to a sunny weekend ahead... a great time to catch up with friends and maybe do some work in the garden.

As I have only just glanced at a couple of images of the NY runways I think I'll have to catch up on some of those as well!

Here are a few other things I found during this week...

+  Let's start with this gorgeous editorial featuring Karlie Kloss for the October issue of Vogue Netherlands.  
+  I would love to get my hands on this gorgeous Bottega Veneta knot cluch covered in supple soft leather fashioned in dainty butterflies; it just beckons to make an outing with your favourite cocktail frock doesn't it.  Take a look at the cocktail party that Bottega Veneta held in Saint Tropez last month celebrating the classic and the not so 'classicly' finished, Knot Bag here via Vogue.

+  Am wondering why this scent hasn't been marketed before now; a range of fragrances released for fashion week labelled Diana Vreeland; with bold colourful bottles and extravagant large stoppers ' tied together in an iconic Twenties-style bottle manufactured with all the finesse of traditional French craftsmanship'. ... the red bottle would definitely be my pick from the range don't you agree?  Via Vogue.  Available from Colette Paris.

+  And speaking of Diana Vreeland, take a look through these fabulous illustrations of the inimitable Diana Vreeland, and other noted fashionables, by a range of talented artists giving us their take on style.  Via

+  And lastly, be transported to a simple French village (who wouldn't want to be), through the pages of Mimi Thorisson's blog, Manger.  These rustic tartlets above, were just one item on the menu at the local fete that Mimi participated in.  What a beautiful day that must have been... you must read all about it here.

Have a lovely weekend...

Midweek Impression

Have you seen any of the NY Fashion Shows yet?  I've been out and about these past couple of days that I've missed the thread of what's going on to date.

A nice way to catch up is by taking in some gorgeous illustrations by Bil Donovan, sent to cover the Rosie Assoulin Spring 2015 runway show by The Cut.

Lovely aren't they?  More picture via the link below.

Home Style... Modern lines in the Hamptons

So we'll dispense with the white and cream for this one; although the palette remains quite simple and subtle.  Then we'll add some (or alot of), wood finishes.  Walls, exterior and interior, ceilings even, clad in wood.  This quite purist looking home is a definite move away from a traditional Hamptons abode.

The architect here did his research on sound acoustics and sought to make this place a quiet haven during even the busiest of holiday periods even with a family of kids.

Vast expanses of light, space and views can be visible from every vantage point.  And even the white marble in the bathroom isn't what you'd expect.

As a holiday shack, I can definitely see myself spending time within this very quiet and relaxing environment can't you.

Monday reading

My Harpers Bazaar September issue landed at the front door this morning with a thud... literally because the mag couldn't fit in the letterbox!

In a day full of surprises, I'm looking forward to flicking through the pages with Audrey Hepburn's granddaughter on the cover and losing myself in all images (advertising included because they take up the first 200 odd pages!)

There's an editorial on grey outfits (lovely!), there's the images styled by Carine Roitfeld for her Icons (Brooke Shields look fabulous and so does Eva Herzigova), there's the ten key pieces list for Fall (well, we can plan ahead!) and then the images of Emma Ferrar by Richard Avedon's grandson, Michael.

I've given myself a week to get through it all!!

Monday & The Chic Outdoors

Hello new week... with a warm and sunny weekend behind us I thought I need to amp up the outdoors factor with chic take on summer style.

Love this editorial featured in Marie Claire Brazil August edition, with Marcelia Freesz looking quite stunning and vibrant in the outdoors.
