wool and sequins

i love a contrast in materials – the combination of wool and sequins is ideal for a bit of yuletide glamour.

diy Philip Lim diy

i diy-ed this bag a while ago but haven’t used it much. so i thought i’d try again with this inspo in mind…


1. i removed the straps.


2. attached velcro strips.


3. cut a leather rectangle in contrasting colour.


4. attached leather handle. et voila!


carry on

all the essentials for the 9 hour flight tomorrow…

vogue, cashmere socks from Tabio, travel wallet, passport sleeve and scarf from Liberty, silk eye mask picked up on my last trip to ny, moleskin city notebook packed with reminders of all my favourite ny haunts, The Sartorialist’s 2nd book – Closer, Chanel eye cream, hydrating moisture mist by REN and ipad clothed in ArtiZanna.

red white and blue

i made this coat using a quilt i bought in when i was eighteen. i kind of love it, despite it’s impractical bedding like features and heavy weight. appropriate colours too for this day of relief. good job guys.

new in: ArtiZanna purse

i recently made this purse for my friend seonaid goody, a leather version of her favorite and much much used receptacle. this little number was quite hard to hand over i must admit.




trio alike

new in by Artizanna: an unashamed tribute to the Trio bag by Celine. sometimes originality is overrated…
