Old School

These NYC ladies are proof that good style never dies.  Ranging in ages up to 100, their life mottos include 'be curious and never stop having fun', 'celebrate every day and don't look at the calendar' and 'if everyone is wearing it, then it's not for me.'  Their elegance and class is timeless and is testament to the fact that personal style only grows with age.

These photos, shot by Ari Seth Cohen remind me of the poem 'I Shall Wear Purple' by Jenny Joseph and they really display a zest for life and a nonchalance that is so often lacking in the youth of today.

Lana Del Rey

LDR, one of the biggest stars to be born from the age of technology - bar my fave J Biebz, obvs.  She's nostalgic, she's americano and her voice is smoooooth like honey.
And that is all - no more words, just sweet music.

The Basics: White Shirt

I love these two looks so much.  A white shirt is the most perfect item of clothing ever invented.  Dressed up, dressed down, dressed all around (another rhyme?) - it can be worn with anything and goes with everything!

Sun Time

I love love love these chilled summer looks.  Even though they're not really summer, the clothes can be worn in any season, I just love the vibes of these photos.  Enjoy!


Sky Ferreira and Terry Richardson


Leandra Medine, aka The Man Repeller is literally style incarnate.  I would give my first-born child to procure her wardrobe, or even just her PS1 Mochila - my fave bag in the whole wide world.

She has this amazing ability to look like she just stepped out of the pages of Vogue, and for that I salute her.  Because no-one can compare, she also has really cool hair, I want to be her, she is a clothes connoisseur.  Or whatever, get rid of my rhyme, just check out these looks 'impeccable'. (said in French accent because I'm cool like that).

There is only one thing on my wish list today, and that is this b-e-a-utiful piece of perfection by CC Skye.
Anybody got a spare $500?

Flower Legs

Summer is here in name, but not quite in weather, so until we are graced with the burnt-back, strap-mark, maxi dress inducing summer heat, we need to find that balance of warm clothes with a summery feel.
Hence flower trousers/ palazzo pants/ leggings/ jeans - anything with a patterned leg.

 Voila some of my personal faves:
Proenza Schouler (on sale!!!),  Miss Selfridge and Stella Mccartney
