An Update on that Cape

I was asked yesterday for a detail shot - so excuse the quality of this one - i have just cropped into one of the earlier test shots - and yes that is Frankies snout!


The Blouse has pussy cats on it and it is Miu Miu and only Miuccia could do this quite so very well, the necklace was an old sale buy, the bracelets are from Laos and the silver bangle in between is too big for me - my friend Lou got me it but by the other two fitting i can wear it as i love it.  Costume ring on left is Lips ring and right is Lanvin - so there you go - all the details x

  1. Place where you took photos looks beautiful. I like your sheepskin vest and all 70's inspired look. Gorgeous. How can go wrong with Miu Miu, Marni, Chloe, Celine, Marc Jacobs..Love your hair.

  4. And I love the clutch too, in such a beautiful, noble colour. I'm developing quite an obsession for these deep red, burgundy shades. And the handle makes it so practical. Hope you have a fabulous weekend, Claire! xoxo

  6. Thanks Marcella and you xx

    Ada, me too - i am loving burgundy - i didnt even realise it was a handle when i bought it - it was only when i removed the removable strap that it clicked - it is really handy - literally haha xx

    Thank you Francesca x

  7. Great details, I love your hair too, do you just let it dry naturally and it looks like that?

  8. What i do Tabitha is wash it and then (and this is my new trick) brush it once only immediately with a middle part in the first 4/5cm and the rest all brushed back which seems to make it lift more and not go so pancake flat then as it dries occassionally poof the back a bit with my fingers - i like it more surprisingly but it still has summer highlights when it darkens in winter may not be so successful xx

  9. PS this was a couple of days old it is even better at first and the key is not to brush - who knew??? x

  11. Claire, I love this close-up pic and the details of your beautiful outfit. The tone of the blouse is just perfect with the new cape and you are so right: only Ms. Prada can make pussy cats and bananas (and let's see what's next the coming runaway...) so fashionable! And I've always been intrigued by Solange Azagury-Partridge's creations, so quirky.

    Thank you so much for your comment! So nice that you are going to have a place in Italy...If you want, I could suggest you a couple of beautiful boutiques not very far from Liguria...Have a great w-e!

  16. Love the kitties on the blouse and your vest/cape is spectacular!

  17. Thanks Deja - and have a fab weekend x

    That is really kind Little Rus thank you x

    The colour is so easy style diaries x

    I think we have similar hair Paola - thick with a kink - if i brush i have to curl to tame it not actually curl it which drops anyway x

    It was such a fab buy blonde hair blue eyes x

    I know only Muiccia - i am so looking forward to seeing her show - one of my highlights - i am supposed to be sunning and relaxing not shopping in italy but hey it will not hurt to know!! Have a fab weekend x

  18. Claire the close up shows how soft and sumptuous the vest is, it must be a great layering piece.
    I must say you are fashion savvy and know how to put it all together for a personal statement.
