WHO'S THE BOY YOU LIKE THE MOST...

Wednesday, 31 March 2010
And the award for most good natured crowd surfing goes to Mr Thomas Mars of Phoenix. An over exuberant teenage boy next to me yelled out, "Oh my God, I got a piece of his hair!" I've never really got the concept of desperately trying to touch the artist engaged in surfing, but I guess it's the done thing and Thomas was right next to me a couple of times so I gave him a pat on the back because he

LINA...

Sunday, 28 March 2010
I know you don't need me to tell you about Lina Scheynius. If this was the kind of blog that relied solely on other people's pictures for content, it might be hard not to illustrate every post with one of her pictures and this is a fine excuse to do just that. Visiting her exhibition at Viktor Wynd Fine Art in Mare St on Saturday to see her photos in physical reality felt like meeting internet

SCRAPS...

*The Impossible Project starts selling Polaroid film again today - and a medium is saved. *My cousin in Barcelona played me her friend Samantha de Siena's album and I like it. She sounds a bit like PJ Harvey channeling Amelie Poulain - no, the other way around. *With minutes to spare before taking the train from Passeig de Gracia, I ducked into Oysho and was so overcome by the cute Liberty prints

IPHONE MARCH...

Wednesday, 24 March 2010
Clearly, having an iPhone is severely affecting the quality of photos I post here, but hey, there are more of them and it's so bloody convenient. And I don't even need to remember where I've been now. {1. Kent countryside, 2. Richard Wilson's 20:50 at Saatchi, 3. Ajit Chauhan ReRecord at Saatchi, 4. Pope Joan at Motherfucker, 5. Eggs Royale, 6. A heart, 7 & 8. Barcelona}

Before heading out for an evening in Barcelona, there is the obligatory dance party with cats and wigs.


Dear Randy and Lois, Lola accepts your kind invitation to visit.

Then it was out into the countryside to visit family in Montseny - it was so lovely. We had a really wild thyme (you had to be there) and I implemented the ritual of a daily post-breakfast siesta. Do you have any idea how

FOG...

Wednesday, 17 March 2010
I'm lost in a fog this week, so apologies if the blog isn't up to much. I feel like one of the subjects in these photos: moving in a barely discernable blur at warp speed.{photos: Alexey Titarenko's City of Shadows series via Them Thangs}

LYELL SPRING...

Monday, 15 March 2010
The spring Lyell lookbook is up online. I have one solitary top from Lyell that I bought three years ago in the New York shop. I still love it and wear it all the time, so I clearly need more Lyell and can easily work out some kind of cost per wear expenditure justification ratio.

WHAT I DID DO*...

Sunday, 14 March 2010
*If I'm forced into telling people about my blog, I assure them that I don't just go on about what I did at the weekend; that hopefully I offer some kind of interesting and creative content. But here I am doing just that, because I had the best time last night - and because my birthweek is speeding up at such a rate that I need a place to record it. To begin the celebrations of the week of my

WOWWOWWOW...

I'm not the sort of person who bandies superlatives around too much; if I was ever to say you look fabulous darling it would be because I really meant it. This morning I saw Roberto Rubalcava's work on Feaverish Photography blog and immediately went to his portfolio, where words like hopelessly captivating and spellbinding flew straight into my mind. The light, just look at the light...{photos

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A SUFFRAGETTE...

Monday, 8 March 2010
And aren't you glad about that? Yes, it's International Women's Day again. What, you didn't know? I try to mention it each year here on the blog because it passes by largely unnoticed in this country. There are some who say we don't even need one anymore, that enough progress has been made. It's been around since 1910, yet the first I heard of it was when I lived in Italy and men kept coming up

When I am older and richer and perhaps a little bit wiser, I shall wear Dries Van Noten. If one more person asks me why I'm not in Paris for fashion week...No I am not. I am clearly here, in London with an internet connection and roughly zero justification or funds to send myself to Paris for a week. But I know a lot of people who are, so have a good time and you'll tell me all about it, yes? (

SO NOW I'M ALONE, NOW I CAN THINK FOR MYSELF...

Wednesday, 3 March 2010
It's been too long since I did an '80s video post. Unfortunately there was no official video made for Friends Are Electric, but we can just sit and imagine how amazing it would have been.

GOOD MORNING...

Monday, 1 March 2010
I just thought I should let you know that my toenails are painted in Chanel's Orange Fizz, the sun is shining, the birds are singing. Therefore, it must be March.{photo taken in my street last year - the cherry blossoms are only weeks away...}
