Gisele Bundchen lounges seductively for the camera in this meadow-flower adorned Louis Vuitton frock. The floor-length silk-chiffon empire line frock designed by Marc Jacobs goes so well with the Martin Margiela graffiti trainers – you know how I love it when stylists pair couture with runners! This image is from “The Long Story” shot by Corinne Day for Vogue UK, June 2002 and was styled by the irrepressible Kate Phelan.
As we settle into the New Year with ease and grace, have you kept to your intentions or resolutions so far? I have committed to 30 Days of Yoga with Adriene to get me back in the swing of my practice. I didn’t really let go of my daily practice over the Christmas break, but I felt it was a good opportunity to encourage myself (and others I hope!) to focus on a daily session with someone else guiding me to keep me headed in the right direction… I am working on keeping my authentic self at the forefront and I believe that showing up on the mat every single day for 30 days will contribute to achieving this goal. I’ll keep you posted! 😉
I’m catching up with some long-lost girlfriends tomorrow and I cannot wait to see them, it’s been way too long. Lately it feels as if we are further apart than ever, but the reality is we live within a short drive of each other. We all lead such busy lives, it’s truly astounding how time passes so quickly. I’m going to surprise my daughters with the visit, I’m not going to tell them who we’re going to see until we reach our destination! I love doing this with them, it makes for such an excellent surprise for them!
Here’s hoping the sun comes out and stays out this weekend.
I promised you a selection of my favourites (so far anyway) from New York Fashion Week and here they are…
Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 – loving the head scarf!
Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 – mixing prints and I am so into skirts at the moment, I love these skirts with pockets – a skirt must have pockets. Period.
Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 – loving the mix of orange, pink and grey.
Zac Posen Spring 2013, sexy and ultra feminine.
Zac Posen Spring 2013, I love navy!
Suno Spring RTW Spring 2013, this whole collection was delicate in detail and design.

I will try to get the next instalment of my collections favourites to you very soon. I am way behind in reading my RSS feeds, I have sooo many to catch up on, over 800 – it’s ridiculous, how will I ever?? But I must if I am deliver my next selection of favourites from fashion week! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend! xx
I guess it’s no surprise that I have been a little slack in my blogging lately… I want to blog, truly I do! I just have a bit of trouble focusing on working at my computer at the moment. Frankly I hate the bloody thing. It’s old, it’s slow and the keyboard is so annoying that I sometimes want to throw it out the window!
Note to reader: I have just wasted 30 minutes rearranging my desk and trying to find a way to make the keyboard cable longer. 30 minutes wasted, alas no resolution was found. #*@#!!
So let us turn our thoughts to the latest spring ready-to-wear (also known as Pret-a-porter) collections where colour ruled and simple, clean lines enhanced the boldness of the jewel colours.
