Not Over it Yet.


Still not over Gucci Spring 2016. Am I the only one having trouble keeping up with the constant seasonal turnover? How do they keep churning collections out so fast? It's like a machine. How is that a good thing?

Lover's Eye.


Georgian "Lover's eye" - jewellery which came into fashion towards the end of the 18th century. Painted onto ivory and worn as a brooch, often hidden -  a clandestine gift from a lover,  having commissioned the portrait. The red locket, with a breast miniature "Beauty Revealed' by Sarah Goodridge, was given as a gift to the the US senator, Daniel Webster, a man not her husband, in 1828. Maybe not so far off from sexting.

Edie Campbell in Gucci for UK Vogue.


My passion for Gucci 2016 has yet to waver. Why would it? A rose pink neck tie embroidered with giant yellow pineapples! Image via.
