Has Drew Barrymore got a new stylist or something? She is looking totally diffrent lately, and not to mention very smug about it too. And her smugness is justified I think.

She looks really great. She has slimmed down a bit and just looks fresher and more pulled together. She even looks younger. It's reminicent of the 90's era Drew, that I was a huge fan of, only the grunge look is now replaced with total Glamour.

Love it!

Hey Feather,
Check out this installation by Stella McCartney.

Amazingly beautiful.


Hey Z!
Ya this is way old but still so beautiful. For most, the Hadid Swarm Chandelier is the ultimate though. It is above your head as you walk into the V&A Museum in London. I wish I could buy it and put it in a mansion... a mansion that I could also buy... and live in... under the chandelier...

Neons and Neutrals

I'm loving this power combo right now. Teaming blush and beige minis with bright orange cuffs is nothing new, but seeing the latest collection from Elizabeth and James reminded me of why I fell for this look in the past.

The colour duo is favoured by Christopher Kane and I adore how he puts them together. The neons pop and the neutral colours become more nude than nude.

Mini Runway Report - Fall 2009 RTWear Picks - Dsquared2/Burberry Prorsum

Hey Zeph
The collections for Fall 2009 have been ok... There have been some disappointments, like Alexander Wang and Josh Goot, only because I expected so much more. Their Summer outfits more than make up for it though.

Decided to finally post some photos from my picks - the shows of Dsquared2 and Burberry P. I thought the twin designers of the former produced something amazing - every outfit was rockin'.... and beautiful Christopher Bailey of the latter, well Burberry's just my 'I heart' label, and under his direction the clothes are always so simple, fresh and trend-setting.

TBA or Some cool stuff to look at

Last night while hunting for inspirado on the net I came across all kinds of cool, crazy, awesome and inventive things. I was truly swamped. I've sourced some really great blogs. Found some real estate porn. And been re-inspired by some old favorites. Here's a sampling of what I found.

http://jakandjil.com/blog/ - My new fave fashion blog. A-maz-ing photos!

Real Estate Sites for beatiful places. eg - Hamptons


Search the listings by home styles such as 'High ranch, beach cottage, French, Barn".

This picture is from taken from Richard Gere's place that he currently has on the market.

Oh man, I just wanna sit in that nook with a bowl of porridge and a magazine.

And my ever trust worthy go-to site for everything creative and wonderful. So much to look at, so much to digest. Everything design related from fashion and interior design to architecture and packaging.

All hail

Love to see her.
And to think I was just looking for photos of Christopher Bailey.

All Hail indeed. She is fab.

The Perfect 3

I have that old desire to purchase things again, as always on a Friday... Perhaps it's the sense of weekend freedom just round the corner and I'll be free to hit the stores. To buy or not to buy... maybe just to look?
Since you have been in town the last few weeks Feather, we've been able to window shop together. But you are off overseas again soon and I will be again using our beloved blog to show you all the cool stuff I find. So I figure I might as well get back into it.
There are several items I'm always in the market for. A bucket hat, Boots and handbags. These are the things I've been hunting forever and I assume always will be. There is always something not quite right. I'm constantly on the hunt for the perfect fit or shape or colour, and they continue to elude me.
So today's theme is my perfect 3...with a twist.

1. Bucket Hat from https://www.rikefeurstein.com/ Love, love the shape.

But then again, maybe this one is better to see me through Winter '09?

2. The Boots.

Ok, so what I'm after is the biker boot. Slight heel. Buckle. Dirty Charcoal Black. Think Brenda Walsh. You know what I'm talking about Feather. One day I will find me a pair. In the meantime I'm loving this heeled boot from http://www.asos.com/

3. The Handbag
Many a bag has passed through my hands, many have spent months under my arm or in my grip. Not a one has been special. Not one. Oh I see beautiful bags all the time, I do. But most bags suit me that day, or that out fit or a particular mood. I'm looking for the bag that is perfect come rain hail or shine. Will it be quilted? A satchel or a tote? I'm thinking it will be Gucci or Marc Jacobs who delivers, but you just never know.

Today, I like this one from Marc Jacobs :

And this little Fendi :

And finally from this buttery goodness from Dior:

All bags can be found at eluxury.com

Hey Zeph
Well, I can't say I'm not a little hurt ;) I got you a handbag once, so beautiful, so useful, day or night, work or play.... when I think of it it still seems to really suit you, so maybe I'm delusional!
I love that first hat, its sooo nice. Its similar to a beautiful grey one that Katie Holmes wears in her new movie:
These are called Cloche hats - a little something I learned from Tongue in Chic.
Me no likey the boots-y, but I love the Fendi handbag.
Yo Feather, I totally forgot about that grey bag! My wardrobe is a mess and it often means Im coming across long lost treasures buried deep within. I love it - its so soft and the red & white striped lining is so me. So, as an added note my above post...I have lots of nice bags, and one very special one.

The gowns of the 2009 Oscars

Hey Zephyr!
I forgot how much fun watching the Academy Awards red carpet is - I felt happy to the core.
There were so many mistake gowns - Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Biel, Amanda Seyfreid, to name a few - but there were some beautiful dresses too. And as a lot of them were already in white, I could indulge my wedding fantasies that much more easily this year!

Before I get into my faves, let me mention my least faves:
poor Amy Adams looked plain and terrible and just plain terrible.
Angelina Jolie, well she somehow turned smugness into a fabric, black of course, had a dress made, and wore it with emerald earrings. She looked sensational but man was it boring.
Angelina, yes, you are queen of many things, but if you think you are so totally awesome in black, if you sooo dont care, then why even be there? Skip the red carpet!
(Ironically, Jennifer Aniston did skip the red carpet, and due to a friendly and positive glow, she looked better than Ange without even trying.)

Ok, I'm done, here are my top 5... +1 (pics are from JustJared and smh)

5. Miley Cyrus - let this dress be a lesson to all, from the bodice to the skirt, the FIT was perfect.

4. Anne Hathaway - tragic eye makeup, but shimmering pailettes was a stroke of genius.

3. Freida Pinto - the most beautiful attendee of the night, in Galliano with an Indian sari feel.

2. Taraji Henson - Oh, the delicate pale pink layers! I bet it was even more beautiful in person.

1. Marisa Tomei - Power + Princess. Possibly the best I have ever seen at the AAs. LOVE.

Honourable Mention:
Demi Moore, whose dress never saw the red carpet but helped her host an after-party.
How how how does she look so incredible?

How about you Zeph?
And did you laugh your head off at the fashion disasters?

Hey Feather,

Oscar time again...oh we love it! So much genius, and so much horror all in the one place! All the better for us to debate and rate.

Before seeing your post F, I feared our list would be identical or close to it - and where is the fun in that? You and I have such similar tastes...but then there are the moments we see things very differently. Luckily, because the dresses were so varied this year, so are our lists.

First the bad stuff out of the way.
I totally agree - Angelina + black (again) = boring.
Loved Winslet's hair, hated the dress. Reese Witherspoon - really confusingly bad dress. Miley Cyrus, great fit yes but I loathed the dress. And Nicole Kidman...wtf?

And now to my faves..
Side note, I had issues with much of the hair and make up, so my decisions were based on the dress alone.

5. Sarah Jessica Parker. I loved this gown on her. It's a Barbie/princess look for grown ups.

4. Natalie Portman. Her lack of curves and the boyish hair don't make the dress pop at first glance, but the colour and the detail is beautiful.

3. Evan Rachel Wood. I think this is a sophisticated dress. Love the colour. This is what a Hollywood starlet should look like.

2. Taraji Hensen. There is a reason we both have this dress on our list. Can't fault it.

1. Penelope Cruz. This one didn't grab me at first, but the more I look at it, the more I love it. Simple, but stunning.
