j'adore l'armour

I have been looking everywhere for an armour ring and have finally found one on ebay, I am thrilled!

It's like a beautiful cage wrapped round my finger - delicate, strong and mine, all mine!

wedding belle

Since I am getting married next year obviously my thoughts have turned towards the dress. I think I know what I want (simple and understated but will have impact, vintage-looking with a modern twist) and because of this I want to get the dress made. I went on a trying-on spree which was fun and informative, not least as it showed me that I am far too fussy and indecisive to setlle on one dress when I liked lots of little things about most of those that I tried on! I can feel this is going to be a tough decision...

Don't ask me why, but when I think of wedding dresses my mind automatically comes back to this

I know it is a CARTOON about a mermaid but just love the thrown-together style that this makeshift dress conveys. The closest I can find is this by Monique L'Huillier.

Hmmm, we shall see...I'll keep you informed.

model watch - lily donaldson

Our girl from London Lily Donaldson has modelled in high profile campaigns for Dior, Burberry and Dolce & Gabbana. One of the new Supermodel breed, she has stalked the runway for all the greats, been photographed by legends (including Testino) and graces the covers of Vogue, I-D and Harpers Bazaar to name but a few; this girl is amazing.

gold rush

I want gold and lots of it! Obviously although the real thing would be nice I will have to make do with reams of fake gold necklaces, rings, bracelets and even hair accessories. Combine all of them together for a trashy and messed-up look or a long gold drop necklace with a simple multi-stranded bracelet for a demure and ethereal feel.
