Something To Hide Behind

(Image via Noirfacade)

Masks fascinate me; there's something so sexy and mysterious about them. 
Sadly, I have never had the opportunity to wear a mask, but don't worry I'm not concerned. If the situation becomes desperate, I shall simply throw a masquerade soiree in my own honour. It's genius.

This editorial and cover from the October edition of Paris Vogue are stunning, sexy and oh so alluring. Too excited to wait for my copy to arrive!

Scary Times... you ever have those moments in life where you feel really restless and off centre? What do you do to get through it? This time it feels a little scary.

Wedding Fever Has Hit Me Again... I'm sharing a pic from our wedding.

Pale Floors...

...I am slowly falling in love with pale floors.  I am seeing them pop up everywhere, but would really like to see them in real life to see how they translate in everyday use.

These Shoes in My Size Please

It's a little early to be saying it I know, but these might possibly be the perfect casual Summer sandal.
There's something so very fresh and relaxed about the gold hardware and camel leather. A sandal that will go with just about any outfit, but skip over the blah-ness of a neutral shoe, is rare and most certainly a precious addition to any shoe wardrobe.

Can you not imagine you and your girlfriends swanning around St. Barts on a balmy evening, cocktail in hand, wearing these fresh off the Milan runway Pucci sandals and sublime Pucci dress....

A Restoration of Faith

You cannot begin to understand how excited and surprised I am to see this! Ooooh I love love loves it.

For the longest while now Nicole Richie has been my celebrity style crush, especially during what I like to call the 'Zoe era'. I don't think there was one outfit during that time that I wouldn't have worn myself- it was literally an era of amazingness. However, lately-- and I feel disloyal saying this-- I've begun to lose interest. Whilst I totally respect the boho aesthetic and sometimes find myself wishing I could pull it off, in reality nothing excites me more than high glamour. Nothing.

This divine Marchesa dress (hello tulle!) is a fabulous return to the Nicole style I adored so much. Sigh....

It's Been A While..

...since I've posted wedding photos.  They have all seemed to be much the same to me lately until I spotted this one. There is something really joyous, young, and sweet about this shot. 

These Shoes In My Size Please...

These posts are usually Edie's domain but I just had to shoe you these Louis Vuitton wedges. Love them!

Have A Fab Week My Lovelies...

(via Once Wed) I may have panicked yesterday when I posted about my frustrations for the party today. It turned out to be a wonderful day.  The two pictures above were a huge inspiration as I made paper garlands and had a photo booth up which was so much fun to do.  I seriously now want to do it again and again.

Hope you all have had a great weekend, here's to the start of a good week xx

Frustrated With Myself...

...I had the honour and opportunity of decorating a pre-wedding lunch party and I'm so frustrated with myself. I had a clear vision of how I wanted to decorate it, but somehow convinced myself that I couldn't do it. Now that the day is close I am already faced with a feeling of 'I should have...'.  The sad part for me is that I won't get a chance to ever do this again.

A Wish For My Love...

A Great Use of Wood...

(via Dwell)

I am loving this kitchen table/bench made from a 14-foot-long walnut slab which came from a tree that fell into a Californian street. It really does help to ground the space and make it feel like an inviting and warm home.

Why People Are Fascinating...

...because you can never really know what to expect from people. Case in point this pretty girl...

I never would have expected her to have these...

and then comes the killer tattoo...

Don't you just want to hang with her for an afternoon and ask her a million questions.

Some Bad A** Shoes...

Thank you Sea of Shoes for bringing to my attention these magnificent Jill Sander shoes.  I'm not usually into shoes with this kind of a heel but heavens these have stolen my heart. They make me want to wear leather, go to a dirty rock n roll show and smoke cigarettes all night with a dirty martini in my hand.

I've Had Enough...

(image source unknown)

...of hairdressers! There I said it. Why is it that even when you spend a lot of money on your hair, they still can't manage to get your hair right.  I went in today for the same colour that I had done on my last visit, yet somehow managed to come out with a much darker hair do. Not happy. Especially considering I am not asking for a radical colour. I'm talking about basic brown hair, much like Anne's in the pic above. AND while I'm on a rant, why is it that there are only older men as senior stylists or owners of the salon and then 21 year old's as apprentices in most salons? What happens to women hairdressers in the 20's and early 30's? Where do they disappear to?

These Shoes in My Size Please

I love shoes, we know that. I've professed my love for lots of glamorous shoes, we know that as well; but these hot pink Louboutin's.... they're different. I feel like I was born to wear these shoes...that if Christian Louboutin knew me, he would call them the 'Edie.'

A love like this is bittersweet. I'm starstruck just looking at them and that makes me happy, but then I realise it's high unlikely that I will ever own them....poor orphan Edie.

The Two Sides Of My Fashion Personality...

(Monique Lhuillier via

ASide - Soft and feminine, I love a beautiful print, floaty fabric and dresses that bring to mind garden parties and happy days
(Theyskens' Theory via

B Side - long, lean, masculine looking. I love the rock'n'roll edge to it, and how it's so simple but yet tells a strong story.
