Helena Bonham Carter – A Style of Her Own

In Uncategorized on June 28, 2013 at 12:08 am

I’ve always found this woman extremely intreaguing – her quirky but dramatic style, her attitude and mostly the fact that she does exactly what she wants without a flinch at what others might think.

I love her spread in the July issue of Vogue!

Style Diary – 9 to 5

In Uncategorized on June 20, 2013 at 8:55 pm

I’t’s been a busy busy week, so I’m posting my Tuesday’s ensemble a little late.  Here it is…TA DAAA!

Clearly, I’m taking advantage of the polka dot trend this season.  It’s such a classic print that you can wip out at any time of the year and any season.  I especially love this print on these wide leg culotte pants that I bought from Jennyfleur Loves – the fabric moves so beautifully and gives my outfit a boho chic feel.

Here’s a fab little “did you know” for you…

Culottes describes a split or divided skirt or any garment which “hangs like a skirt, but is actually pants.  During the Victorian Era (mid- to late-nineteenth century) long split skirts were developed for horseback riding so that women could sit astride a man’s saddle rather than riding side saddle.  The term “culottes” was co-opted from the original French definition of the word to describe these split riding skirts. Later, split skirts were developed to provide women more freedom to do activities such as gardening, cleaning, bike riding, etc. and still look like one is wearing a skirt.

Well I can tell you now, I shan’t be wearing these to do any cleaning in – except some unintentional floor sweeping perhaps ;o)

Diana Vreeland’s Wardrobe Up For Auction

In Uncategorized on June 18, 2013 at 8:25 pm

A close friend of Diana Vreeland (who had inherited some of the clothes after her death in 1989) has donated the former legendary US Vogue editor’s clothing to Kerry Taylor Auctions, which will be up for auction on June 25, 2013.  One of my icon’s (since watching Diana Vreeland: The Eye Must Travel), Vreeland was known for her impecable taste, classic and effortless style.   Among her most stylish and sought after wardrobe, there will also be personal items such as a chair she used in her office at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, with the signature DV emblazoned across the back in bright red.

Oh if I could be a fly on the wall next Tuesday!

Isabel Marant brings her French touch to H&M

In Uncategorized on June 13, 2013 at 1:42 am

H&M announced its autumn collaboration with Parisian designer Isabel Marant where she will create a wardrobe of must-have pieces inspired by her signature style. 

Available from November 14, 2013, in around 250 stores worldwide and online, the collection will feature clothing and accessories for women and teenagers and for the first time, a collection for men.

“I am flattered by this collaboration: H&M works with the best designers and this invitation is an exciting honour. I aim at creating something real, that women want to wear in their everyday lives, with a certain carelessness, which I think is very Parisian: you dress up, but do not pay too much attention and still look sexy. The collection is infused with this kind of easiness and attitude. Everything can be mixed following one’s own instincts: my take on fashion is all about personality” says Isabel Marant.

If you missed her spring runway collection, here are some pics to tease your taste buds ;o)
