Alaia by Day

My man will laugh at this title - my lovely friend Rob at Matches once bumped into me in Notting Hill and in his own inimitable fashion announced "ooh alaia by day!" which he was entirely correct about!

Ever since if ever i wear Alaia by day we both have a grin - no-one could announce Alaia by day quite like Rob! x

So it is a week of skirts - Erdem and now Alaia - i bought this last season and it is a really easy piece not to mention seriously 'flippy' in the way that only Mr Alaia could do - his pieces are truly amazing - the dresses give you a waist like no other - i consider myself exceedingly lucky to own a few of his pieces.

Now i know i am going to get asked where Frankie is - he was indoors as it was hot and i dont like tying him up outside places when it is hot as i might not be able to see him - i am of the illusion that someone might want to pinch him!  So how's about a seriously cute puppy pic in his adult absence xx

His first day with us - Bless!!!!! he was so diddy x


  1. Alaia by day rocks!!! And I adore how you wore it with a basic white blouse! Love it, love it, love it!

    Baby Frankie was the cutest thing!!!!

  2. I had to close my blog since someone has entered my mind, I deleted the blog entries and broken, I just open another, you feel like helping me, follow me?? Thanks, RA

  3. I am a die-hard fan of Mr Alaia (I'm not sure if you saw the post on my blog)

    You are def wearing it just the right way. And my little cocker spaniel puppy was also in doors!

  27. What a cute dog! So sweet!

    And you look amazing! Once again! :)

  28. They're so damn'cute when they are little. I so want dog, but I have to be patient.
    I had all my life dogs as well as cats, so not having them is hard.
    Some of our friends giggle about us and are sure that only thing that is missing in our life is a baby.
    Hmm.. I'm not so sure about that.
    You look amazing. I adore your sense of style. Your photos are so great, love this walking photoshoot.

    xoxo Ra
