Jenny Packham's home

Are you familiar with Jenny Packham? Yes the designer who makes those lovely wedding dresses and also dresses the Duchesse of Cambridge sometimes, that one yes. I love her evening and bridal dresses. Delicate and feminine, a bit retro and very very sophisticated. The designer is originally from Southampton in the East cost of the UK but now lives in Hampstead, a lovely neighbourhood in London. I was a bit surprise by her home, it's very rich, colorful, full of textures. While I don't love all of it, I do love bits of it, like the budoir, pretty light and stunning details and the gorgeous bath and airy bedroom. But what I love the most is how eclectic it is and full of personality, just what a home has to have. 

Like it? Steal the look

Ideal Closet

Autumn has officially arrived and it's cold cold cold here in London. It has been raining so what better than the classic Brit staple? The Burberry trench that is yes. No, hard to beat it's classic perfection. I would love pairing it with fab biker boots (I think I need a pair, what do you think?) and a lovely and feminine top to balance the whole look out. Isn't the gold bag an amazing addition to any outfit?

Passalacqua, calligraphy

Being a calligrapher is a pure talent, refined, meticulous, so pretty. Josemaria Passalacqua is just that, an artist. I recently saw his work on He does calligraphy for events, weddings and other stuff and has a great array of different styles to suit every type and each event. From what I have seen these table signs that look like London's classic street signs is my fave. It adds a great touch to the whole wedding setting, don't you think? 

These table signs, depicting cosmopolitan cities around the world, are also a beautiful way to do something a bit different. I love the calligraphy/typography style. 

and what about these escort cards? Stunning!

Nicoli for the little ladies

Nicoli is a kids clothes store in Barcelona and Madrid and they do the exact type of perfect little outfits I would like to put my future children in. Classic, a bit traditional but very very pretty and just a bit edgy and childish. Lovely colours, not pinks and blues, but subtle greys, charcoals, beiges. And my fave bit? the little hats? How cute! They also have an online shop if Barcelona or Madrid are too far from your neck of the woods!

and something for the bigger girlies, Nicoli has pretty outfits for everyone. Yes they also have pretty fab stuff for the boys too!

Random Friday

Random Friday is the perfect title for this post, a collection of randomness beauty. My mom has arrived from Barcelona and I'm signing off early to fully enjoy the weekend. I leave you with some things that I liked and made a nice and sweet collection. Like this picture of Marie Chantal with one of her children, how fabulous is she? and how sweet is mothership? Off I got to enjoy my mom's precious company and I shall see you on Monday! Have a nice weekend lovelies xx

These invitations are very pretty, I love the simple and effective design and adore (adore!) the envelope lining!

Aesop has a clean aesthetic, simple and striking (at the same time!) packaging and branding and their shops reflect that perfectly. This one in Le Marais in Paris. The photo is by Sofia who has a super SUPER nice blog. It's all in Swedish albeit but her photography of her daily life is gorgeous.

Mismatched bedding anyone? yes please, especially if it's so pretty!

I love this cute top, the boxy and flared shaped is very feminine and the print happy and elegant together. The lovely Lana del Rey models this new H&M collection and rocks it. Very ladylike, very her. The colours of the top inspired this post, do't you think the navy with the burgundy really works together and gives the whole look a very textured and luxurious feeling. 

Get it!

Wedding Wednesday: Bornay

I was convinced I had already blogged about Bornay, but after a quick search it seems I haven't which is a real shame! Bornay probably make the prettier flower arrangements and bouquets in Barcelona. Fatima and her team create real gems out of mixed pretty blooms. They are the Queens and Kings of mixing different types of flowers. Hydrangeas, peonies, they work with the most gorgeous flowers; once in a while when I want to be "flower-inspired" I go and check out their latest work and Bornay never disappoints.

Looking for ballet flats?

I have talked about French Sole many times before, and I have worn them many many times on many Sunday Outfits. I know a lot of women who are always on the lookout for the perfect ballet flats. These are it ladies, yes they are not cheap, but they are close to perfect. Great shape (I buy the India), lovely colors and in trend and obviously very very comfortable and still super stylish. Hard to beat!

Olivia Palermo is one of the many fans.

Let's talk Business... cards!

The lovely Anna (I love her, she is what you call a real sweetheart!) posted on her blog her new business cards. I loved them so much I had to share in case you had not seen them too. A mix of neon confetti, heart tickers, cellophane envelopes and striped washi tape make for a lot of fun and a great conversation topic. And I'm sure everybody will remember the "lady with the gorgeous business cards"!

My own business cards are simple but effective (I hope) however I'm falling in love with all these creative examples.

Wedding Wednesday: Elie Saab for Pronovias

Over the weekend I went to the Pronovias store at Bond St to check out the new Elie Saab collection that had just landed. Incredible craftmanship, beautiful beading, sensual but classic cuts, all in all a collection of breathtaking dresses to make any woman feel like a princess. The best bit of all is that there was a dress for pretty much all brides to be, A line, full skirt and body hugging were all present. The price tag was not for all budgets unfortunately but with these kind of dresses it is kind of expected.
