their portraits project is pretty gorgeous, too.
have been quietly obsessing over this colour scheme for a while. decided to call it sherbert. yes, i know the correct spelling is sherbet – but i pronounce it sherbert. and since i am making up a colour scheme i may as well make up a word, too. it’s somewhere between art deco pink, peach, salmon and dusty rose… i guess it’s all of them combined.
i recently received a lovely email from Sandra Lemp, the designer behind lingerie collection Le Boudoir. Now – i’m not the kind of girl who indulges in fancy underthings (i’m more likely to hang about in grandpa pyjama pants than a negligee) and i’m also not one for very frilly, lacy, racy or complicated underwear. but the minute i saw Sandra’s collection i fell – hard.
reassessing my wardrobe right now – in my head, that is. hypothetically. if i were to win the lottery or discovered a giant diamond in my garden… this is what i’d spend that money on.
uh… wow. making all other lookbooks jealous.
what i find pretty strange is that i’m often labelled as a fashion blogger – something i have never called myself. i don’t pretend to know anything about fashion, my knowledge of what goes on in the industry is on par with any other girl (or guy) that occasionally buys vogue or glances over the latest runway shows. my interest in it is purely aesthetic. sometimes it manifests itself in what i choose to wear, though i’d like to think that a person’s taste develops over the years rather than being plucked from the pages of a magazine or whatever trend is running rampant on the runways.
i was recently given a beautifully designed scarf as a gift, which i am tempted to have framed because the design itself is far more interesting to me than actually wearing the scarf. now i’m having second thoughts after seeing these silk scarves designed by textile designers Amélie Charroin & Marie Colin-Madan for Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre – which means 1984 in french, the year of birth of the two designers. it’s quite awesome to see how such interesting designs transform depending on how you wear the pieces.
