head for hats!

I have learned from my Mum that all you need to make an outfit stand out is a hat (she wears a hat about every second day). I've got several trilbies, barrets, a bowler and other headpieces in my own wardrobe but I don't wear them nearly as often as I should. So here are some photos of beautiful styles with hats that I've noticed during the last couple of days. They clearly show that my mother's right.
If these photos havn't convinced you yet, check out Les Mads, they put together a gallery.

a sunny morning in manhattan

I took these photos when we went to New York about a year ago. Next time I'd like to go during summer (I suppose roof garden parties are even more fun when the cold drink in your hand doesn't make you shiver) ;)

come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away

My flatmate and me went on a little shopping stroll around the city this afternoon. I found the sweetest necklace! Since I love birds so much it's just perfect for me. :) More about our finds soon ...

Spring Nails

I'm tired of black and grey nails, my collection of nail colours needs a spring update. Raspberry, strawberry, cherry, peach - it's got to be some fruity ice cream shade! Picture - from top left to bottom right: American Apparel "Rose Bowl", Essie "Calypso", OPI "Chapel of love", Essie, "The Art of Spring 706", Alessandro "He loves me - love love love", Essie "Pink Glove Service", OPI "Charged up Cherry", Essie "The Art of Spring 709", Uslu Airlines "BBA".
I think my favourite is a pastel-coloured one by Essie.

Magical Tim Walker

Once again Tim Walker created a wonderful photographic fairy tale world. His latest editorial for Italian Vogue, entitled "Lady Grey", is a transcendent barock vision of Marie Antoinette meets A Midsummer Night's Dream. He'll always be my favourite photographer.

Who's that guy?

I love this shoot (who's that incredibly handsome chap?). All pictures found on Knight Cat, and originally from Holier than now.

Moomin Mug

I went to Stockholm and got the Moomin mug I'd wanted so long. It's from Arabia and I think it looks really good with my other mugs (I'm kind of collecting). The other ones are from Pip Studio, Cath Kidston (love everything from them!) and Penguin Books.
