The Golden Couple

Flipping through "Happy Times" - as I so frequently do when I have down time - I fell in love all over again with Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy.

Flawed, of course, but so, so glamorous all the same

Look Alikes

Thank you Lola for pointing out the fact that I sometimes have a habit of looking remarkably similar to this young Londoner

Mrs. Green with Envy

One of the most original blogs I've seen in a while (and also one of my favorites), Mrs. Lillien has now officially opened her styling house!

From the few photos I've seen on the site, I'd definitely hire her - the Palm Spring 60s, bright and sharp aesthetic is very becoming at this time of the year
