Truvelle

next weekend we celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. it feels like it was years ago, yet minutes ago. my dress is still hanging in the same position in our cupboard, skirt flecked with dirt and doubtlessly splattered with champagne – as if it happened yesterday.

if you’re on the road to nuptials perhaps consider a beautiful dress by Truvelle. handmade in Vancouver, Canada, they are launching their 2015 collection today. i must say if i had to do it all over again i would probably consider something with sequins.

These Things No.61

Miss Moss

excuse my pudgy toes.

hey guys! it’s my birthday today. i woke up to beautiful flowers, and white chocolate cheese cake in bed and a new kindle (thank you, kind generous husband). i’m 31 today, which feels weird to say because sometimes i still have this sentiment about my age.

so, a these things.

this selfie video with Kirsten Dunst made me laugh (especially because one of the first things i did on my birthday morning was take a photo of my flowers! cringe cringe cringe). also Kirsten looks amazing.

i have cooked this recipe for Khao Soi twice since discovering it last week. it is the simplest and best tasting curry i have ever made – and because it’s a mix of Thai and Burmese / Indian flavours it’s really interesting too. i have never been able to nail a true Thai curry, so this dish is on the money for me.

Double Tap: Charlotte Trounce

illustrator Charlotte Trounce has been doing these amazing illustrative recaps of select SS15 fashion shows on her Instagram account, which certainly deserves a Double Tap (i would triple tap if i could!) i feel like when you look at the seasonal shows everything starts merging into one big fashion rainbow, and sometimes it just takes one talented & creative individual to show you awesome aspects and details you might not have picked up yourself.

all illustrations by Charlotte Trounce, follow her on Instagram.

Tiro Tiro: Cercis

dearest readers, i apologise sincerely for enabling your shopping habit. but the Tiro Tiro Cercis collection is too good. the Cercis necklace is probably my favourite.

Tiro comes from the latin word for a beginner or novice. Tiro Tiro embraces an era of experimentation and improvisation, drawing from our years of practice and honed expertise and then making things up as we go. Evolving and exploring new mediums and techniques, we allow the materials to guide us, finding that some of our best work happens by accident. In addition to jewelry, we look forward to offering limited runs of small sculptural works and complementary wares.

Jackie in India, 1962

i know there are mountains upon mountains of imagery of Jackie Kennedy all over the internet, but i actually hadn’t seen these pics of her visit to India before, so i thought i’d share. she looks happy and colourful, accompanied by her sister Lee Radziwill. there’s even a video about her trip at the JFK Library. photos courtesy of Life.
