A Gorgeous Manhattan Wedding

How gorgeous are the photos from US Harpers Bazaar's Senior Market Editor, Joanna Hillman's NY Wedding. See the full story on the US Harpers Website by clicking here. Joanna's divine wedding dress is from the Rochas archives (naturally) so divine- but I am also in love with the art deco bracelets that she wears in the photo below.

Colour Me Happy

You know you are getting old when you start seeing fashion trends come around for the second time- and the arrival of coloured denim back on the fashion radar again has well and truly set me in the old category.

I remember coveting a pair of red coloured denims in Dolly Magazine when I was in Year 8 (circa 1991- is fashion a ten year cycle?!), but my Mum refused to buy them for me. So of course now I am adamant that I will get a pair, knowing full well that I will not really wear them for very long before the trend bites the dust again for another ten years. 

So I have been lusting after the J Brand 811 Ankle Jean (above) but I think I have found a good cheaper option the Lily Jean from French Connection that will satisfy my coloured denim craving without out causing too much post purchase dissonance in a few months time. 

Here are some of my red coloured denim inspiration images- hopefully I can carry the jeans through to next Autumn as I can see happening with some of the latest street style shots from north of the equator.

Fabulous Summer Hair Style.....The Sock Bun

Image via Three Pink Dots

When I logged in to Pinterest (If you are on Pintrest follow me) today the picture above popped up on the home page and I was intrigued. I have always wondered how girls create these huge ballerina buns in their hair- and I always presumed that although I have long hair that it was too fine to create such a voluminous style....but there is a little trick and it requires a sock. Weird I know, but I just tried it and it's so easy and looks fabulous.

Check out the tutorial on Three Pink Dots at the link below, and you will be loving this easy style as well. Absolutely perfect for summer- don't you just love Pinterest!!

Aerin Lauder's Amazing Aspen Home

About a  year ago I wrote a list of people that inspire me- a bit corny I know, but sometimes you feel like you are getting a little of track and need to focus....but I digress, the point is that Aerin Lauder is amazing, and I find her inspiring in every sense of the word. So I when I saw the article by Plum Sykes in the current issue of US Vogue (you can read by clicking on the link above)  I had to share the amazing images of her Aspen home- it is an example of the effortless, understated chic that Aerin, in my mind typifies. So elegant and the view from her living room is to die for...

Vogue Paris- December 2011 Cover

How gorgeous is Arizona Muse on the December issue of Vogue Paris. 

This is the best magazine cover of the month- love the hair, sparkling green eyes and perfect red lip. I am getting bored with the orange red that everyone has been wearing, so this berry shade is the perfect refresh heading towards Christmas.

Brunette Hair Inspiration Anyone?

Image via Nobody Knows Marc

I' m back! And in dire need of a cut and colour, after having my gorgeous baby girl 6 weeks ago. Tomorrow morning my husband will be having some one on one time with bebe M, and I am sneaking of to Head Studio to get some much needed hair maintenance- bliss. So today I have been trawling my favourite blogs for some inspiration, which can be tricky when you have long dark brunette hair that you don't really want to chop off- with a little baby it is essential that I can get my hair up into a ponytail.

My fave being Caroline Sieber (above and below). My hair has only every had a semi 3 shades darker than my natural colour applied, so tomorrow I am just going to talk to the colourist about trying to make it lighter (she is going to either die of shock or humour me whilst knowing I will never actually do it!). Either way I am looking forward to having a few hours of pampering and a good blow dry.

Have a great weekend xx
