because it really is all you need, innit? :)

DIY Luxe

If you can't buy it, make it. Or, even if you can buy it, do it anyway. Paper chanel bag with metal chain was spotted elsewhere on the internet. I couldn't resist posting it, as I think it shows a mix of courage, originality, and cheekiness that is sometimes forgotten in fashion today.

A sunny day

Today was the first warm day in a long time. I almost said first 'sunny' day, but admittedly, it has been rather sunny this past week. More than not. Perfect for a visit to the London Zoo. The ticket price is extortionary, but if you're feeling up to the commitment, the membership pays itself off after 2 visits, pretty much. The rainforest garden is especially enticing, because of the proximity that it allows to the creatures in the mist. After taking in the animals for a few hours, I wondered into town down the Baker Street, eventually popping into Dover Street Market to see what's new in store. For anyone feeling a bit strapped for cash to splash out for normal CDG prices, the Black collection offers popular cuts from the mainline in less expensive fabrics (eg, cotton twill vs.  pre-wrinkled poly blend or worsted wool).  The result still screams Comme, but with less of a shock to the pocketbook. I admit being late to the game to tout this line, but I guess that's because I was always going straight up to the 3rd floor first.
