Black is Best

If we were to build a house at this exact point in time I would luuurrrrvvveee to use black steel windows. I am currently a little obsessed with the look and particularly like the way it brings an urban loft feel to a modern space. Not sure how practical they would be during the middle of winter here in Christchurch but surely the statement ‘beauty is pain’ also applies to architecture (and the cost of home heating?!)

Here are some images that are inspiring me lately….

Dots and Spots

Spots are a fabulous print to add to your wardrobe and I’m loving these spotty pieces available at Sass and Bide. They bring a modern edge to a classic look…

Jealous Much?

Yes I am! Insanely so!

I miss living in London for a number of reasons and of course, one that nears the top of my list is the shopping! When I heard that Isabel Marant was doing a collection for H & M my envy radar went a few shades greener.

I loved to mix H & M pieces with more expensive ones, so when it was revealed that one of my favourite designers (whose pieces are a little out of my price range!) was going to have an affordable capsule collection at H & M I wanted to get on a plane and to the nearest store asap (H & M Australia opening soon!).

Here are my favourite pieces (I could quite happily have the whole kit and caboodle actually… ahhhh sigh….) from the collection that is released November 14th. To see the sneak peek of the whole collection, head on over shefinds.com
