lily smiles in motel

I'm wondering if this recentl bug (which my medical friend Linda has diagnosed as the big S, altho both my mom & my husband, Mr. Dot, beg to differ - my mom's logic being, if I was well enough to post, how sick could I be?) has perhaps aged me to the point where all 'kids' are starting to look alike. I met Lily recently - she's a friend of Emma Allen, more about her later - and - is it just me? She just reminds me a lot of that other Lily. Especially her Smile.

Lily's cardigan by Motel, who have just coincidentally sent me something today about their Christmas collection. In a bizarre twist of fate, this is excerpted from what they sent: "... Their speciality is the conspicuous, quirky dress, so naturally their audience is the conspicuous, quirky girl; LILY ALLEN, Florence and the Machine, Duffy, Little Boots, Peaches Geldof, Marina and the Diamonds and Alexandra Burke have all been snapped wearing Motel’s iconic pieces, recognisable for their super flattering, supremely modish feel."

I must say, I do like the look of their stuff, especially these two FAUX fur coats (Their 'Husky Coat', at £110, left, is just what I had in mind the day I ended up buying my chocolate brown 50/60s vintage jacket instead, and the unfortunately named 'Foxy Loxy', for £90)

And I like a lot of their dresses. Especially their 'bowtastic' dress in 'baroque', below. (Who makes up these names??? I mean, do they sit around a table after a liquid lunch & just start bandying names about?) It's so not me in every way: I don't generally do patterns, and you know how I feel about red, but I'd make an exception for this. I've seen some other bloggers wearing great stuff from Motel, but haven't actually tried anything on. Anyone else a Motel girl out there? Besides all those celebrities, I mean? If you'd like, please email me a JPG of you in something Motel. Smiling, of course ; )

Cute sweater, but why is she wearing her house shoes in public? (I know I know, but I just hate those stupid things.)
