A plaidish moment...

Still thinking red...in plaid.
Every Christmas I go back and look at this photo. I just
love the coat and boots...it is one of those, if I could, I would
kind of looks. I found the image @ Where The Sidewalk Begins
Sarah Jane has much more to inspire. Definitely worth a look see.

The Ladies in Red

It doesn't matter the age, the era, the woman...
when red works, it works.

Style Icon: Loulou de la Falaise

I have been reading all week about the passing of Loulou de la Falaise and wondered who she was. Yes, I am admitting to those of you who are in the know, that I am not. :) Bohemian, renaissance-loving designer and former muse to Yves Saint Laurent....I found everything I needed to know @ The Arbuturian. I wish you luck when you get to the site, you will find it hard to leave. It is filled with pages and pages of wonderful articles. Enjoy!

You will find a fabulous post about Loulou de la Faliase written by Dash @ the French Sampler here.
It is filled with wonderful photos and Dash's attention to detail. She always gets it right.

Thinking Red with L.K. Bennett

One minute she is talking about hiking boots (here) and the next minute she is talking about red satin slingbacks. Welcome to my world. I have a Ball in Australia next month and I want to create a look, simply. I am not one for the Ball circuit so whatever I end up with, I want it to work for other occasions.
I may be a bit off topic with these shoes but I have to say I quite fancy them. :)

The brand: L.K. Bennett
The shoe: Moulton Slingback
The detail: Satin ruffle, Diamante sparkle
Inspired by: The platinum and diamond jewelry of the 1920's
My thinking: Judy Garland of The Wizard of Oz fame... 'there is no place like home'
Would I buy them?: Absolutely
What would I wear them with?: I have no idea, any suggestions?

Taking to the Hills with Brasher Boots

I am not a natural outdoors woman but I love it all the same. If you are going to do the extra miles,
take to the hills, maybe the mountains, then footwear is all important. I have my fair share of hiking
boots and have spent a small fortune getting it right. When I saw these boots by the UK brand,
Brasher, I couldn't help but take a peek. The one that caught my eye was the Hillmaster GTX®,
shown here. Can I say, that for hillwalking..they look pretty smart. GORE-TEX® lined for
waterproof comfort, full leather lining, Nubuck cuff and lightweight...they would take some
wearing in to soften up but I wouldn't mind. Does a woman need two pairs of hiking boots? hmmmmm.....

Creating your own style with Jolier

The Transformable...

 The Reversible...

The All-in-One..

I have a closet full of tops that can do this and that. I love transformable clothes! I admit it takes some time to get it right but that is half the fun for me. In my Sunday paper this morning....Jolier  fashion and the woman behind the brand, Sveta Planman. A young and talented award winning designer based in Helsinki... she has come up with the transformable, reversible and all in one multi-fitting garments. I like this woman's style. If only I could get a few extra inches on the shorter version, I think my life would be made. What a great travel dress!

Style Notes: It's a Wrap

Over the years, I have collected wraps of various colours, textures and sizes. Fashionable or not, I find them easy to wear and great when you need to dress up or dress down. A brooch, a scarf or something of your own making..the possibilities are endless. I am sharing this passion of mine through a little 'Shop Around the Corner' that I recently created for my blogs. I have been slowly building a selection of my favourite things with the hopes that others might enjoy the same. There are no gimmicks...it is just another place to share my story.

I love the wrap shown above...it is an Alpaca wool blend shawl showcasing the art of Peru. I imagine wearing it around a beach bonfire on a cool autumn evening...to the first burst of snowflakes whilst running from shop to shop in the Christmas rush. Intrigued?

French Sole-India

Style: India

I am not sure which I love more....the description or the shoe.

Ponyhair India in Leopard. Suits a narrow to medium width fitting and has an elegant low vamp,
 which reveals a little toe cleavage, and has a quarer inch heel. An elegant and durable 
well-balanced ballet flat wardrobe essential.

Sounds and looks perfect to me!
