This collection from Reem is a dream accessories rack for me. For as long as I can remember I have been vigorously searching for OTT Tom Binnsesque jewellery that doesn't cost the earth. Apart from my friend Amee's amazing Topshop necklace (now broken, and I'm still mourning), I haven't even come close. You can imagine my excitement at discovering the existence of the Tom Binns/Alice in Wonderland collection, at least as excited as one can be who has yet to discover when it comes out, where it is stocked or even really what the pieces look like. HOPEFULLY in time for Christmas, says the girl who knows her boyfriend scans her blog for gift ideas? (edit: a small amount of research tells me that it arrives at the same time as the film in 2010, it's a collaboration with Disney Couture, and that prices start at $50) Unfortunately for me I believe the necklaces above were made for the Reem catwalk show, which does not help me price or availability wise. All suggestions welcome.

How to Spend it

I'm not sure where this Wendy Bevan shoot was held, but considering that it was for an '07 edition of the Financial Times' "How to Spend It' supplement, I imagine it to be in some secret, lofty bank vault in the heart of the pre-bust City of London. I am loving the classical, age charred architecture, complimented by the sculptural styling, even down to the model's cheekbones. The fourth photograph is perfect.

David Shrigley is basically awesome.

Linus Ricard, 2

Another dreamy set from one of my top 5 photographers, whom I first profiled in July 2008 when I had approximately 5 readers.

In other news, in the week between my old shop job and my new lifestyle PR job (which I started yesterday) I went to three exhibitions in three days (Anish Kapoor at the Royal Academy, Exquisite Bodies at the Wellcome Trust and a mixed bag of a group one down an alley and up a dodgy staircase near Brick Lane) and was generally a busy bee and girl about town, so I have absolutely loooads to share over the next couple of weeks. I am also love love LOVING The XX, and can't stop listening to their album. Have linked above, listen or miss out on an aural treat.

Wendy Bevan


I know I say this about practically every photographer I post, but this time I mean it more than all the others. I am absolutely in love with Wendy Bevan's photography. She's based in London and has worked for Lula (naturally), Muse and 10. I first posted her photography back here in May, and my obsession has slowly grown. You can expect to see many more Wendy posts from me because I couldn't help totally cramming my inspiration folder with her shots.

This is how I aspire to wear creams browns and greys this autumn winter.
