Wood grain from Christopher Kane

Tuesday, February 21, 2012
I love that Christopher Kane turned to the dark side for his latest collection, with leather and woodgrain prints in deep hues of red and indigo.

There is no dignified way to eat jelly.  FACT.

Preen Fall 2012

Tuesday, February 14, 2012


Anything inspired by botanical illustration gets a huge thumbs up from me. 
Patterns, paneling and prints in a rather alliterative trio from Preen.

What's really in my bag

Thursday, February 09, 2012

I'm marveling at the amount of junk I actually carry around with me every day.  This is most of it...

The contents include a lone sock, various lipsticks, loose change, a coffee loyalty card, chewing gum, random beads and crystals, an ink cartridge, the metal cover for the rubber of a mechanical pencil, the earbud from some broken headphones, a multi vitamin, tic tacs, a necklace, a broken brooch (the pin has disappeared but will no doubt injure me when I come across it in the near future), a plastic spoon, lots of receipts, a label from a jumper, trusty notepad and favourite pen, a stripey pencil from New York, a head band, loose thread and button and my purse (which contains more loose change and even more receipts)

You can see the doodle in all of its cluttered glory here

What's in your handbag?

Monday, February 06, 2012

I've always been intrigued by those "what's in my handbag" blog posts.  It's probably the voyeur in me that enjoys seeing what everyone carries around but I always feel like the photos are too curated and most likely edited to make it look like a pretty picture. 

 I know my bag looks nothing like these...

I'm going to follow this up with a "what's really in my handbag" post.
