Ali Michael













Ali Michael is adorable, especially in the shoot she did for the last Lula. She's styled here by Camilla Nickerson and photographed by Mario Sorrenti. I found it here. Even though I'm not a shabby chic kind of girl I would wear everything that she is (and yes, I am aware that this mish mash of fabric is worth thousands of pounds). 

Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair










Fifth Avenue Show Repair are a super cool Stockholm label whose mission statement includes a dedication to 'traditional tailoring, pattern making and the old ways of the trade.' Somehow this translates into entirely modern silhouettes. The pieces above are from their 'by the no' collection, which is an experimental, made to order, trans-seasonal addition to their amazing ready-to-wear productions.

Lonely Birthday









As stated a few posts back, I'll be moving house on Saturday. My house is slightly less aged and eccentric than this place, shot by Louis Parks for Vogue Korea, but it's equally charming. That said, it might take some time to bring it up to the standards of mummy's comfortable house (broadband, sky plus and constant central heating will soon be a distant memory...) I'm looking forward to my adventure, and I have a feeling that the blog might suffer slightly while I ground myself. I will definitely be collecting interns stories to share, and get back to normal service as soon as possible.

I REALLY WISH these sheets weren't almost £300 because I need them in my life. For those with well paid jobs, savings or generous parents, find them here.

Sandra Freij











Sandra Freij has worked for Lula (my fave), Dazed and Confused, Another, Mixte and a million other amazing magazines. When I was searching for information on the photographer, who splits time between Sweden and London, I accidentally discovered her facebook. Although she is definitely my sort of girl, I didn't add her. Maybe I'll get to meet her at a certain top secret LFW party that I don't know if I'm allowed to talk about yet, but will definitely document when it happens...

Tilly Bloom








Tilly Bloom is a Scottish illustrator and designer living in Brooklyn. Her eerie jewellery shows her interest in antiquity, Victorian costume and the bizarre. I don't wear jewellery, and I never wear shirts, but I still really want some Beethoven cufflinks. I will definitely be ordering a bookmark.
