yummy plummie


The sun's out, we're finally shedding our Victorian mourning black here in London. I love this plum and lemon combo dotted recently in Spitalfields Market.
Speaking of yummy, my fabulous friend Amanda Diamonstein-Cieplinska, blogger extraordinaire of all things nuptial, has me all intrigued about Violet Cakes, incredible cupcakes by Claire Ptak, a Californian via Chez Panisse. It's all in here her blog, Stellina Events. I realise this isn't fashion related, but a girl's gotta eat!

Off to the Chelsea Flower Show, to shoot the flora and the fauna. Saw a lot of bold prints yesterday, as predicted. And, of course a lot of fashion don'ts. It is lovely, however, to see everyone out in their most flowery attire! Floral prints at the CFS are like hats are at Ascot: not always in the best of taste, but guaranteed to be fun.
