Salon du chocolat?

Waiting for a train, wondering about going to the Salon du chocolat. I hear you walk away with lots of chocolate. And probably feel a bit sick.

The dress post

My beautiful wedding dress made by my dear friend and vintage officianado, Lola Loves. The day I have a wall tall enough, I want to frame it. Is that a bit Miss Haversham?
Cream satin with lace overlay to skirt and the top of the bodice, attached on the bias from the bottom of the bodice; vintage lace appliqué to the back. 

Vintage beadwork headband, also by Lola Loves.

Pearl earrings and necklace from my family.

Back waist detail, vintage lace, found in Portobello.

Bodice overlay, vintage lace with tiny polka dots.

Lace skirt overlay was a vintage veil, found in Portobello.

 Cream satin shoes, House of Fraser.

Wedding bouquet, by Au nom de la rose

Cosy Sunday

Cosy Sunday
Cosy Sunday by pinkmilkkate featuring a pink cami

A little indulgence goes a long way on a grey Sunday afternoon...

Trying out, just like cutting pictures out of magazines and making collages on school books and folders when we were younger. Love it, but it's a shame we can't clip etsy items... Above is a cosy Modcloth cardi, with Splendid Cotton jogging leggings, fabulous Nicole Farhi shoe boots, House of Fraser blush silk cami, Kate Spade pearls, Jerome Dreyfuss bag and Lulu & Nat cahmere scarf.

Green with DVF envy

Am coveting this Diane von Furstenberg green silk wrap dress. Re-issued seventies design, I stoke it whenever I'm in Printemps.

Blushbaby, by Mary Quant

Blushbabies pink their cheeks with Mary Quant! A super find at a Batignolles flea market on a recent Sunday sortie: Mary Quant Blushbaby blusher, unused with brush and insert. Now that life is slowly returning to normal for the Paris half of pink milk, we will be doing a lot more of this sort of thing, and we can't wait.

A staple of the sixties London scene, Mary Quant is an iconic designer famous for the Swinging Sixties look of Chelsea girls-about-town, miniskirts, coloured tights and skinny rib knits. At the forefront of the boutique culture that took London by storm in the sixties, Quant's Kings Road shop became a favourite hipster hangout. In 1966, she was given an OBE by the Queen, for her services to British fashion.

Mary Quant cosmetics were launched in Great Britain the same year, and in Japan in 1971, where Nippon girls were going crazy for the London look. Quant made regular visits to the country thoughout the seventies and eighties, launching accessories and home lines as well, in the early eighties.

Quant designed the packaging herself, in iconic white, black and silver to highlight the product colours, all featuring the trademarked daisy logo.

Today, Mary Quant cosmetics are available for mailorder in Japan online, or from the London store.

What use is a luxe hotel if you only see your room for four hours a night?
