My outfit the other day when I was out of the house the entire day and evening in different places indoors and outdoors. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, this Coup de Fouet scarf features a lot! The fact is it went with everything when I first got it and it continues to do so after nearly 4 years. And I still love wearing it. The leather jacket hasn’t been worn much at all in 3 years but that’s fast changing all of a sudden this year. Continue reading
The best way I like to wear vintage these days is casually, with simple dresses and skirts or jeans. These two pieces are a vintage tweed coat by Wetherall and a Miel alligator Hermès Cordeau bag also here. Continue reading
We can’t help but be affected by the death of Prince and so many other notable celebrities lately. I went to see in concert in Wembley in the early 90’s and still remember exactly what a I wore: black organdi tee, Vivienne Westwood hotpants, Woldford dark grey shimmer opaque tights and black suede ankle strap sandals by Charles Jourdan. We were quite close to the stage and had a great view. I am enjoying my own Purple Phase even more in his memory.
Maybe it was bound to happen, there is a limit to the amount of neutrals one can wear and even though I thought I had a ‘neutral’ wardrobe, colour and print live there too. [Sorry, yes that is a plastic bag hanging off my tree in the background – we are weeding and trimming in the garden.] Continue reading
The second Summer for our Clematis in the garden ready to burst open.Like so, they are more dramatic than last year’s with more petals. I just love flowers. The dark green leaves and purple echo the Kelly and Violet KDT bracelet I am loving. Continue reading
Over the years I’ve become slightly obssessed with the size and weight of my bags. As well as being aware of the overall size, the intrinsic weight of the bag must be under a certain amount and that is 1kg. The quality of Hermès, Chanel and Céline bags I own usually means they rarely exceed this threshold but some of the heavier leathers by Hermès do or come too close for my comfort. Aside from hobbling about on too high heels or ill fitting shoes – quelle horreur – schlepping around what looks like your whole life and the kitchen sink isn’t the best look. Continue reading
I took our youngest Sweetie Girl to London, just the two of us the other day and there was much excitement. It seems my first destination is always to Hermès 🙂 but she was ok about that. Bond Street had a lot of scaffolding and cranes at regular intervals from New Bond Street right up to Green Park. Continue reading
This was a slice of Mango and Coconut cheesecake I enjoyed the other day as a little treat after lunch. It’s a new combination of flavours to me and it was delicious – light and fragrant. The weather continues to be changeable and I find the cashmere cardi indispensable.I never thought to ever be associated with anything remotely ‘Rugby’ and it just happens to be the name of this Hermès bag that’s a favourite during Spring/Summer/Holiday. It’s a long-ish wide little bag that’s deceptively roomy yet neat. It’s also here, here and here. Continue reading
