Jennifer spotted these sunglasses with her keen Crusader X-Ray vision at River Island's press day. 'It's like some crazy DIY project, where you just glue everything on', she said and that seemed the theme of the day. What fascinates me is the crossover influence from people like Shini, who took an ordinary vintage pleated skirt and turned it into something extraordinary with the use of one or two cleverly placed, tiny gold ordinary household safety pins, or Moschino (at My Wardrobe's unbelievably wonderful press event) making a beautiful collar of gold - very Nerfettiti - using the same safety pins.
Shini's gorgeous buttery soft palest salmon pink biker jacket is by DLUX. In case you were wondering.
The excellent seared tuna nicoise was at My Wardrobe, as was the top necklace with coins (sorry I forgot who made it and they're moving offices today! It's made of real coins, some even seem to have Jewish stars on them) but I do know the bracelet, above 2nd from last shot, is by the wonderfully talented Lucy Hutchings, represented by Robinson Pfeffer and available at My Wardrobe soon (some of her other designs here). And back full circle to Jen in another wacky pair of sunglasses from River Island, and the most gorgeous sixties inspired minidress, also by Moschino, also at My Wardrobe (coming soon: this is for spring - but I'd wear it now!)
Shini is wearing: Pink leather biker jacket from LUPHIA (it's on sale - only £42!), shoes from Zara, pleated dress - which she DIY's with pins for that effect - by storets.com.
Thank you for your lovely Thanksgiving wishes and comments yesterday! How was your Thanksgiving, if you partake? Our was lovely, like a little Alice in Wonderland tea party Thanksgiving: everything in miniature (roast garlic chicken: turkey for two people, and a cat, seemed excessive) apart from the stuffing. You can't make a small amount of stuffing and besides, why would you want to? Stuffing is such an amazing invention. It's like DIY: throw everything you love together, and bake.
