Couture in the desert. Agyness Deyn (in what I think is Chanel), with Kiki the Cheetah in the Namibian desert. Cheetah’s are my favourite of all the big cats. This image is an outtake from an editorial photographed by Tim Walker in Kolmanskop, Namibia, Africa 2011 for British Vogue. Tim Walker is definitely a favourite photographer of mine because his images take you to another time and place. There is beauty in every pixel. That’s why I chose this particular shot. No one is looking into the lens, and yet it still captures the attention and the imagination.
Yoga teacher training has been full-on, we go on a mid-year break soon but we have one more student teaching assignment to do first. I’ll be teaching sun salutations with Virabhadrasana I, also known as Sky Warrior. I have trouble with this particular pose, it’s way down on my list of poses I like to practice, for some reason my body just struggles with this pose. So of course, I have to learn to teach it, don’t I?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, we are off to see X-Men Days of Future Past this weekend and I can’t wait! It’s been too long since I’ve been to the movies, I need some escapism!

Kate Moss looking sultry for British Vogue’s December 2013 issue shot by Tim Walker. She is draped in Vivienne Westwood Gold Label chiffon. Don’t you just adore her little feathered friend? I love owls.
Have you ever had the problem of not being able to find your Christmas decorations or maybe even your Christmas tree for that matter? This seems to be an annual problem for our household. Unfortunately, after turning the house and the garage upside down we are still without decorations and lights! The tree is up and the girls have decorated it with only tinsel and one strand of lights that I recently purchased. I can’t find our wreath either. It’s so perplexing because I was sure I had stored them under the stairs which is of course the perfect place for such things, right? I have not yet given up hope in finding them, so I’ve put off buying any new baubles because I know that the minute I do the old ones will magically appear!
Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are in this crazy, busy world!
Today’s stunning Armani Privè embroidered bustier frock is worn by the always fabulous Kate Moss. Photographed by super talented Brit Tim Walker for Vogue US April 2012 in the Coco Chanel suite at The Ritz Hotel Paris and styled by none other than Grace Coddington. For a trip down memory lane, click here to read all about Andre Leon Talley‘s wonderful account of his many fashionable stays at The Ritz – it’s worth the click I promise! 😉
How’s your week been? I don’t know about you but this dark moon Mystic Medusa keeps banging on about has really had me feeling super drained and lacking energy all week. I don’t always understand what Mystic is going on about on her blog, but boy she is accurate when I do!
Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are!

I have to admit the internet is so amazing somedays because earlier today I was feeling so uninspired with today’s Frock Friday post that I was actually thinking of taking a break from blogging – truly! I guess it’s because lately I’ve been feeling that I’m not hitting the mark, but then I came across this image of Lily Cole in this 2005 Vogue UK editorial “Lily Takes a Trip” and suddenly, I stopped. I was blown away by the beauty and Tim Walker‘s genius. I have been exploring his work lately and I’m liking his photography more and more. The glow from the sun and the way it bounces off the wall Lily is leaning on, plus the pink bougainvillea flowers strewn on the ground and tumbling down the wall behind her. Then we have the subject of the photograph, Lily Cole with her butterfly net and in a very cute Chloè frock – the combination of all these elements make this picture so memorable. Do you have a favourite fashion image? If you do, I’d love to hear from you. Just leave a reply. xx
Have a lovely weekend!

Kate Moss photographed by Tim Walker and styled by Grace Coddington for American Vogue, April 2012. Kate is wearing Christian Dior Haute Couture from the Spring 2012 collection. The images from the shoot which took place at The Ritz hotel have been doing the rounds on the internet. I found the image below a while before I saw the gown in all its glory in this beautiful image from Vogue.
This is the gown as it is being lovingly hand-sewn by the talented artisans at the House of Dior.
I would like to thank you for your patience this week, it has been a very trying time working out the issues with Blogger and why I couldn’t publish anything. It has been stressful and unpleasant, to say the least. But, I am happy to advise that very, very soon, I like, I wish, I heart will be moving to a new home Yippeeee! There is still a few technical details to sort out, and all my work from the last 4 years will transfer across with me to my new self-hosted website, so you will always be able to browse the archives. So until then,
Have a lovely weekend!
