Botanical beauties ...

Another new set, inspired by the beautiful, botanical dress which I stumbled upon on I have labelled each piece from my set so if you like anything you see, you can go and have a look yourself. The cushion was a great find!

Whilst on the subject of botanical inspiration, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite images which relate to this theme.
Hope you like.

L' Amour Millesime

Hello all,

so today I thought I would share a lovely little website with you all. If you like vintage finds with a lovely hand finished feel, then this is a site that will have you flitting away your time before you know it.

From textile design graduate Brooke Edwards, this site is jam packed with feminine, hand selected, vintage finds from around the West Midlands. The focus being on all things girlie, there is beautifully cut glass wear, intricate jewellery, delicate doily's and a whole lot more. It is like a little treasure chest for the vintage enthusiast.

From the out set you can see that this website has a personal and themed approach to selling products, which I think makes it all the more appealing. Along with the fact that all the stock on the site is hand selected and finished (mostly applying to frames only), you can really sense the amount of time, labor and love that has gone into creating

Below I have pulled out some of my favourite (of many) images from the site. To see it in all of its girlie glory then a visit to the site is a must.

fleurs du mal...

So, he is back. My favourite designer Erdem. I have only just got around to checking out his fall 2011 collection which was showcased 21st February in London.
This is a collection which surprised me, after reading the inspiration and theme behind the designs however, it then all seemed to make sense.

It is a wonderful theme. His muse - an artists wife who cracks and tears apart her husbands canvases only to remake them into pieces of clothing. Upon reading this the surprising use of patch work, plunging necklines an cut out detailing all seem beautifully relevant and symbolic.

I love the darker palette of this collection and the slight skew on delicacy and accuracy. Though it must be said that his signature lace overlay is still happily present.

Below are some of my favourite pieces from the collection. Particularly the maxi dresses and shift dresses with lace overlay! Once again Erdem, I applaud you!!

And here, my favourite two dresses! The difference in fabric weight and how the colours change in intensity... I can't help but fall in love.
