Mish Mosh en Francaise.

Mish Mosh


Inspired by my current French adventures through Bretagne, I was compelled to piece together a maritime-je-m’apelle-Fabienne-styled outfit.  Note the introduction of wintere-sque items ( leather gloves and beret) to balance the savoury coloured blend of reds and blues.
A must for all who are living near a market. Ownership of a handmade, woven basket is the upmost necessity for your Saturday morning spree. Fill it with a delightful bunch of fresh sunflowers or peonies. Fill it with what makes you happy and do so clad in a comfortable pair of loafers, wool jumper and a french spring in your step.

Burgundy Bliss

A retro student look.


300916 by rosemarykate featuring an enamel 
I came across this collage on polyvore just now and i thought it was just the prettiest selection of fashion mix and cute ladylike essentials.
Burgundy; THE current color en vogue for autumn. I love it. Its a transitional color, perfect for this time of year (as i type with my ox blood colored fingernails!)
I think its a stereotyped London student’s look. In a romantic sense of the word. Or the Oxfordshire PhD scholar as she unties her bike to the old ancient black railings of the studen union house: Loafers, leather satchel, flec framed spectacles and the list goes on.
Can you root out your burgundy business?

Shades of You (Blue)

This week I am in the Old North State of North Carolina. Blistering afternoon temperatures soar mid to high twenties. My Irish skin has me taking refuge in my hotel room during the peak, daylight hours. It also has me people watching from my window on the high seventeenth floor. Thanks to the hot summer sun, she gave me some fashion inspiration- Fair trade for keeping me imprisoned in my own room.

And so I figured, why not keep cool during these hot summer June days with a shade of cool blue?!
