ROUGE



Yesterday I bought new spring plants, there was sun and 15 degrees. Not quite summer yet but I'm looking forward to it and as usual, despite my pregnant state, dreaming of bikini's no less. It's a feeling, it's a mood, it's the smell of summer.

TONE



The house smells of gardenia and fresh laundry. Thinking of the beach and jewel tones. Waiting for baby--everything will be fine.

ODE

 


I love Jane and I love her necklaces.

DAY



Sitting here, heavily pregnant and largely couch-bound wishing there was a little more glamour in my day. Would love to get out of town and see something new but I'd settle for a few books and maybe some Aurelie Bidermann

REFLECT

 

Fashion is both a reflection of and a reaction to the times we live in, where the importance of art and creativity should take precedence over all else. I wholeheartedly agree with Diana Vreeland when she said, "Fashion must be an intoxicating release from the banality of the world." Without it I feel everything would be lifeless and therefore pointless.

CHECK



Every year, at this time, there's this hope for spring and summer. The hope that you'll do it better this year, that your closet will be the stuff of dreams. Mind you this is usually before you add it all up but regardless of whether it comes together in reality or not, it's the dreaming that counts. Soon you'll be able to wear lighter coats and shoes and heaven forbid maybe even show some flesh.

FRESH-FACED


As possibly the gloomiest month of the year approaches I'm dreaming of fresh-faced beauty. Peaches and cream.

AWAY


I'm done with winter now. After Christmas it's really just a countdown until the first signs of spring and then summer.
