Hair Inspiration: {Head Start}

{...hello lovelies, after a very relaxing weekend and family day yesterday playing "fruit ninja" on the xbox followed by a lovely dinner, it was nice to settle down and start reading 1Q84, which I know after reading the first chapter, I will love... more on that to come... am busily researching the internet to bring you a post on New York, which I plan to travel to for the first time in September... until we meet again, take care, xoxo}

Runway Inspiration: {Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2012}

* love the vintage vibe of this dress, with the exquisite detail of a flocked butterfly motif borrowed from a kimono the designer picked up in Japan and of course the unusual, yet adorable fishnet gloves

*  the little black dress updated with details of passementerie-trimmed velvet and the other in a stretch radzimi

* a trio of inspiration to turn everyday work outfits into something spectacular

* the leopard-print overcoat, albeit a bit longer, still a coveted staple in one's wardrobe

* the never-ending flattering neutral, the blush, paired with a bold red lip

* these are my favourites; love the pairing of a chunky knit striped sweater with a lace pencil or a always flattering a-line skirt

* lastly, a lovely fuchsia sweater with a draped and twisted pencil skirt in army green; love the color combination and juxtaposition of feminine with a hint of military influence

* images and some editorial content taken from style.com

Weekend Musings: {Lovely Links}

{... hello again, the weekend so far has been relaxing and I'm presently at home covered in a soft mohair throw before a crackling fire and watching movie after movie... as you may have noticed I haven't been as diligent in posting regularly as I would like... I resolve to change that, thus you'll find a sneak peak for what is to come (found at the bottom of this post)... future collaborations with other bloggers are in the works and, well, there is so much to say and to look forward to... it is after all a brand new year!; hope it is beautiful where you are in your part of the world, xo}

Delectable Recipes: {Vanilla Caramels with Sea Salt}

{... hello! after a brutal and shockingly stressful re-entry at the office, am looking forward to a relaxing weekend and giving this recipe a try... by the way, I completed reading this book and am on the fence on whether to recommend it... although a quick read and fascinatingly descriptive timeline into the art world, I found the main characters lacking in appeal... next, perhaps this book, which I'm told is wonderful...hope you had a wonderful week and have exciting plans for the weekend, xo}
