Vogue magazine obviously adores Sienna Miller because this image is from her fifth Vogue cover editorial. The frock is by Marios Schwab and it features lots of pretty Swarovski elements. I love the way it hangs off Sienna, but, what I love more is the birds used in the shoot – which of course is a direct reference to Sienna’s role as Tippi Hedren in The Girl (2012) the HBO film based on the Donald Spoto book Spellbound by Beauty: Alfred Hitchcock and his Leading Ladies. According to the book, “The Girl” was Hitchcock’s nickname for Hedren. I am yet to see this flick, but I hear Sienna was nominated for a Golden Globe for it.

Speaking of girls, my beautiful girl Chloe turns 10 tomorrow. It feels like only yesterday I held her in my arms as a newborn. My darling Chloe has grown into the kindest, happiest, most sweet-natured child – I am the proudest Mama in the world!
But first we have to get through today because today is Strawbfest – the biggest day on the school calendar for my children. Annabel & Chloe’s school happens to be in the middle of strawberry fields and every year the school holds its main fundraiser ie. Strawbfest. It is a massive undertaking, so many parents volunteer tirelessly to help keep this wonderful event going each year because it raises a lot of money which goes towards such things as computer equipment and musical instruments for the school. So there we all were this morning, out there picking and packing strawberries – it’s such a gorgeous community event.
Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are.
love & light xo
P.S. Happiest of birthdays for tomorrow also to my oldest and dearest friends Mand & Deb, love you! xo
