It feels like now Fashion Month is over everyone just wants to go on holiday. Not to sound like martyrs, but we do need some serious beach time! I am really craving the feeling of the sun on my skin. So it’s apt timing that Spring Breakers is out..
Tash & I are off to the ICA for Ultra Culture‘s screening of the movie + keg party later this month. Can’t wait to let loose Harmony Korine style.
Should the movie start me thinking about bikini season, I might have to go invest in this tank top by Harmony x Agnès b, (available in stores early April).
Doesn’t it look so cute with little denim cut-offs! Get me to the beach!

.. from a flying visit to Paris. I popped along for 24hours to the LONDON show ROOMS to say hi to the designers and the BFC team and to check all was going well.
I am completely in love with the designers’ collections. All three were truly outstanding. Seeing their work up close again – phwoar, mama! Lulu sure knows how to pick em. (Tash & I are gagging for a personal orders night as between us we basically want the lot.)

After set up I stomped around Paris for a bit. It was great being able to wander the streets and navigate myself to two iconic outposts of Parisienne style and taste: Colette and Laduree. I felt pretty smug not getting lost (for once). I accidentally bought some presents for friends & myself in Colette, including an extortionately priced bottle of Bernard Wilhelm for USLU airlines nail varnish, that’s a delightful murky green, named ‘Birmingham’.
If I were the kind of girl who liked to match I’d say it’d go perfectly with Claire’s hand illustrated devore top (must be mine).
On my travels round town I was stopped in my tracks by Maison E.Goyard where I couldn’t help but gawp at the monogrammed luggage. Dreams of chic Darjeeling Limited style matching suitcases and trunks ensued. Trouble.
Later, I teamed up with Claire and her team for a spot of dinner – superbly yum plats du jour of smoked sausage & lentils at Cafe de L’Industrie.
We all fell in love with this lady:
Buoyed by vin we stomped off in the direction of Saint Paul for a nightcap. Golly, the French love a bit of romance & drama don’t they!
See ya next time Bastille!
