THINGS TO COVET WHILE THE RAIN FALLS INCESSANTLY...


I know it's all about charcoal and grey this autumn/winter but colour co-ordinating with the sky is taking things a step too far. I want to escape, and the weather forecast for the next ten days predicts...more rain.
For now I escape by looking at lovely things and trying to resist buying them...


Jo Riis-Hansen's jewellery. I love the birdy.


High waisted jeans - controversial I know, but bear with me. Cut well like these wide legged ones by Grey Ant from Le Train Bleu they can be super flattering - as long as you have a waist. They elongate your legs and just think, no more builder's bum or chilly draughts blowing around your midriff. Cosy AND chic. Eh? Eh? I am sensing some resistance. 'Tis futile.


Okay I bought this book. For educational reasons. I blame you Ms Spinach! No one else to blame for the behind the scenes Marie Antoinette book though. Amazon just gives me twitchy credit card fingers.

Snaps on the high waisted pants. I couldn't pull them off but agree that they are so much more chic than midriff-baring ones of late.

Thank you for such beautiful necklaces to feast the eyes on amidst all the London cloud and rain; love the clover too.

I was quite taken with this one today http://www.betterlivingthroughdesign.com/2006/08/cloud_necklace.html
