so the minibag (minaudière) trend is cute, especially since it means a ‘coquettish woman’ from the verb ‘ to simper’. i might have to bling this guy up a bit though. only one problemo; it’s too small for my phone….also loving my new pleated front trews from Acne.

love of gymnastics

i’ve been LOVING the london 2012 artistic gymnastics events, my two favourites above: Gabby Douglas from the US and UK’s Louis Smith. these astonishing athletes have also got me thinking about the “body” and i’ve recently discovered BODY EDITIONS, a company who make tailored, beautiful bodies. i may have to add one or two to my autumn shopping list, paired with a silk peg shaped trouser.
