the girl who lives to shop

Month: April, 2012

full on pastel lust

Rain is not my friend. Wind is not my friend. The elements are keeping me prisoner in my winter wardrobe, when all I want to do is frolic in my Louis Vuitton/Jil Sander/Preen/Prada induced, sorbet coloured spring time one!

I am stuck in wardrobe-limbo waiting for the sun to shine so I can start wearing my deee-liciously saccharine colour palette.

Oh well I shall merely gaze and sigh in wonderment, and wait for the rain to stop..

My love affair with Liz

Elizabeth Taylor is an icon. More specifically, my icon. Last night was spent in sheer bliss: in the company the most glamourous woman there ever was, who had the most amazing jewellery collection there ever was. Married 8 times to 7 men, she collected the finest jewels in the world like most collect loose change. ‘Elizabeth Taylor: Auction of a Lifetime’, told the story of her life through her fabulous jewellery – now that’s my kind of documentary!

She adored fur, extravagant headwear, men, a drink and most of all diamonds.

She made a household name of Valentino and Halston, had brows one can only dream of, raised over £270 million for AIDS and HIV, and thought nothing of swimming in Cartier.

I shall follow her guidance forever: “Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.”
