I don't usually like to leave the blog too long without posting but I think this time I have a rather good excuse- I started my brand new job this week and am finally getting to do what I have been wanting to do for quite a long time, so I am very happy. However they have been keeping me super busy hence the lack of content. I do have quite a few things I have been meaning to post, so hopefully normal service will resume this weekend.
In the mean time, please enjoy the 'Thieves' video from She & Him. I am a big fan of Zooey Deschanel and that love has only been increased by this video shot in rather vintage looking black and white with Zooey resembling a silent film star. Magic.

Those of you who are regular visitors to the blog may remember that some time ago I showcased a few items of my own handmade jewellery that would soon be available to buy. Well after a very long delay, that time is finally here!
So please click along and visit my lovely new store Adventurous Eve Jewellery. I am accepting payment by Paypal only at the moment as this seems to be the safest and easiest way of doing so, but if you have any questions or comments about the shop or any of the pieces please feel free to email me or leave me a comment. Thank you!

Charles Anastase, AW11
Anastase's girlish muse was present as ever in his collection for AW11; her tall willowy frame clad atop towering platforms in demure long sleeved dresses embroidered with emblems of shining clovers and fairytale horses, double breasted princess coats and Peter Pan collared playsuits in rich velvet and charmeuse silk.
But at times there was more than an element of the uncanny about her as she floated down the runway in lingerie inspired dresses of billowing pale coloured silk, set against a moody looking backdrop of storm clouds. With her vacant eyes staring from beneath the wild halo of her hair, I was reminded of a doomed Catherine wandering the stormy moorland calling to her lover Heathcliff.
But for all its theatricality and whimsy, the collection was ultimately filled with perfectly proportioned, infinitely wearable and maybe most importantly, totally desirable pieces that any London-dwelling Lolita would love to wear.

Stella McCartney AW11, Paris
Polka dots; the type usually found on the Sunday Best of quaint English Misses, got sexy at Stella Mc Cartney. Cleverly arranged over otherwise see through bodices and dresses, and embroidered on to daring tulle cutaway panels of sensuous black dresses that showcased the models flesh beneath.
My personal favourite is the polka dot bodiced jumpsuit in the first picture with the sweetheart neckline and retro looking peplum- it has an air of vintage about it whilst still managing to look fresh.
