I’ve been away for a while so here’s a recap of what i’ve been up to in the last week or so… How to dress like The Queen: last Friday’s column in The Wall St Journal – I’m a republican (of the French variety) but still, you have to hand it to a woman who has created her own style and stuck to it for 60 years…. read it here
other stuff I’ve come across in the course of my working week….
Linda Evangelista look-alike currently working as a waitress at Granger &Co Notting Hill
very cool shades courtesy of Christian Dior and cupcake Lisa
dog in store …..Notting Hill again..
what all the best dressed ‘kids on the street’ are wearing – this time in Primrose Hill
UPS man’s Brazilian bracelet (purchased on a Rio beach)
Parliament Hill before a rainstorm (plenty of those around at the moment)…
Anya Hindmarch’s Maud – in celebration of Lizzie II complete with paper tiara and instructions for royal wave……
i love Pippa Small’s designs. She’s an anthropologist who works with indigenous tribes to create sustainable resources for her jewellery. Her store in Notting Hill is evocative of her entire approach…
everything is really well showcased..those are my earrings in the left hand corner or they would be if I had the odd spare 4k lying around..
love that charm bracelet at the top..
meanwhile… at Granger & Co, the Aussie Cafe in Notting Hill, what feels like a small slice of Sydney..
Good Jasmine tea… 7/10
and on the topic great of jewellery, here’s my friend Helena’s ‘push present’ – a gift from her husband Tom on the birth of one of her children….it’s from Tiffany, though it looks vintage -no?
