My girlfriends and I saw Dior and I today. It's a doco about Raf Simon's 1st couture collection for Dior in 2012 and I luffed it sick. Sick I tell you! We all did. The seamstresses who make the clothes are amazing. They have "Golden Hands" and stitch like angels. You get to see Christian Dior's garden too which is chock full of blowsy roses. 5 stars People! Run Don't Walk. You won't be sorry.
Raf seemed quite calm up until the end when he gets very emotional. You will too.
The making of those flower walls was amazing. It's a bit sad too because you can see L'Wren Scott sitting in the front row in a cute yellow dress. Poor L'Wren.
In my own flower news look how gorgeous my seduction roses look:
After all that Fashion we needed Food:
Meanwhile, In Important Nail Polish News (like there's any other) I'm loving this slow to chip stuff from Sally Hansen:
It came with a top coat but I never use it. Time being of the essence and all.
I still have no idea who makes this embroidered tulip fabric. Some people think it might be Manuel Canovas. Anyone? Anyone? Anyone at All?
Someone must know.
Need to poach these Darlings. Maybe tomorrow.
My cordyline's about to flower! Goody.
Say what you will about Florence Broadhurst bedding it is deadset attractive and irons up a treat.
In Princess News I'm loving this snap from the Rose Ball:
I like this Mulberry coat:
And Old Mary gets better with age.
By God she keeps herself Thin.
This is a photo from Carolyne Roehm's Blog which I love. Probably because of the candle sticks and that big bronze pot thing. Those are wooden floors painted to look like marble you know. Clever.
I'm reading I'll Drink to That by Betty Halbreich slowly because frankly, I don't want it to end.
I'm loving the description of life in New York in the 50s and 60s. She spent time in a mental institution after her marriage ended and is a true survivor.
Gorgeous at any age.
This is Janet's rose garden in California. Isn't it pretty?
Just watched the Melbourne Housewives.
So many confrontations, so much Big Hair.
Righto, I'm off to google the Kon Mari method of folding to see if it'll work harmoniously with my ironing mania.
