'Day of the Dead Doll'...

After the fun we had last Saturday night, Mr J and myself went out East on Friday night to celebrate Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican day of the dead festival.  We frequented several places, starting at the Ridley Road Market Bar which I had been meaning to try, {dangerously delicious Ginger Mojito's} then onto the Dalston Victoria where there was some serious dancing and dressing up action going on, we unfortunately didn't make it to Qui Qui Ri Qui's DOTD party as time just ran away with us on the dancefloor and so ended the night in Rita's on the Kingsland Road.  I think I can safely say I have re-discovered my love of dressing fancy.  Roll on the annual Miss J festive fancy dress Christmas card, I feel it is ok to start thinking up ideas now halloween is unfortunately over for another year...

'Happy Halloween Bijouxettes!'...

Mr J and myself went to a Halloween party in the tunnels under the Old Vic on Saturday night in London dressed as Day of the Dead sugar skulls (well I was alittle more sugary than he was) so thought I would share with you our make-up looks and wish you all a Happy Halloween (aka my favourite time of the year)!

'Tim Walker: Story Teller at Somerset House'...

This morning I attended the press view of Tim Walker's new exhibition at Somerset House - 'Story Teller' and we were lucky enough to be taken around the amazing spectacle by the man himself!  What a treat.  It opens tomorrow in the East Wing, which is a beautiful space for such a magical exhibition, the lighting is lush and it's free which I think is wonderful. Here is a little taster of some of my favourite photos from the show {I haven't posted any prop shots as didn't want to spoil the surprise too much} - enjoy and go see in person if you can...

'Miu Miu Marigolds'...

Tapping into so many SS 13 trends - summer fur, dressed-up denim, satin {used both traditionally in couture inspired silhouettes and as a luxe lining to denim} Miuccia does it again with her offering for Prada's little sister. Particularly love these bubblegum pink leather gloves.

'Astier de Villatte, Paris'...

On Friday I was in Paris for the day attending the SS 2013 Tranoi femme tradeshow for work and managed to squeeze in a quick visit to Colette where Scott Schulman was signing his latest street style tomb, cue mass queue of street stylers. Whilst wandering back to the metro we discovered the amazing Astier de Villatte on Rue Saint-Honore aka my new favourite homeware shop in Paris {you know I am a sucker for all white crockery}. The window display was so cool so I took I quick photo and went inside and bought Mr J a little souvenir in the form of this ceramic 7 of hearts playing card; part Alice in Wonderland part my lucky number / his birthday date - perfect. They also have a really cool website http://www.astierdevillatte.com that is well worth a visit.
