Dress: Josh Goot  |  Cape: vintage  |  Shoes: ASOS  |  Clutch bag: Colette  |  Earrings: Alex Perry for Diva  |  Bracelets: Mimco As previously documented here, I love me some capes and finally got around to wearing this baby on a recent balmy evening.

I love me some '90s editorials, particularly if any form of Chanel is involved. This little gem was photographed by Arthur Elgort for the September 1991 issue of Paris Vogue and features Susan Holmes and Christy Turlington. And some Chanel. April xx ...Read More

I've been super extra busy of late, so smooth R&B tracks like 'Lotus Bomb' by Wale (featuring Miguel) are just what I need to soothe my jangled nerves.  April xx ...Read More

I'm not usually one to seek out a tearjerker, but after working on a scene from Never Let Me Go in an acting class, my interest in the film was piqued. So I watched. Wow.

I am happy to sing it for you if you are good at this game.  Check out the 'Exotic Dance Mix' of 'Madan' below; you'll probably recognise it around the 2:00 mark! April xx ...Read More

{Hello Kitty iPhone case} I am so in love with my supa kawaii new iPhone case! Her little bow and ears are oh-so pretty. {Almost French by Sarah Turnbull} I really enjoyed this book, which details the ups and downs of Sarah's life as an Australian living in Paris with her decidedly French boyfriend. It will soon be made into a film, which I cannot wait to see! {Intricate beading on a pretty new dress} There is nothin...Read More
