This Month We...
23.12.16

A Love and Object look at December. A month of year end count downs, festive spirit and most essentially, the discovery of our favourite new beauty muse.
Dressed up in...
Breton stripes, crisp white shorts, espadrille lace ups and jewels for day time adventures.

Listened to…
'Ring My Bell' by Anita Ward. Nothing like old disco tunes to bring forth the holiday vibes.

 
Read... 
Sweetbitter by Stephanie Danler. The novel follows a 22 year-old girl named Tess, who has moved to New York to look for a life she can't define. 
One chapter in and we're hooked. 

Watched...
the 'Jackie' trailer and impatiently awaited its release date (12 January 2017). Starring Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy - in what is reportedly her best work - the biopic follows Kennedy immediately after the assassination of her husband, JFK.

 
 

Got into the festive spirit by…
eating chocolate dipped strawberries and freshly baked Swedish spice cookies. Good holiday food can relax even the most stubborn grinch. 

Took some time to...
read the latest edition of Paris Vogue.

Fell in love with…
French make up artist Violette and her on-the-go video tutorials, perfect for those who always have someplace to be. Violette's makeup techniques are informed by her love of renaissance art and neoclassicism. We love her demo of a "feminine soft look" while sitting by a river in Paris, and when she masters a quick smokey eye in the back of an Uber. For those seeking New Years Eve inspiration, this one is a must watch, too.

Worked with...
the stunning Olivia Lefebre on our latest Love & Object shoot.

Alongside cosy wines by the fire,  romantic rainy evening dates and, most excitingly, ski-season, with the incoming cold season comes new opportunities to think outside the box when it comes to dressing.

As the temperature continues to drop, we've been looking to sartorial inspiration which has us reaching for our jewellery box just as much, if not more so than we do during the warmer months. 

For us this winter it's all about layering, embellishing and making the most of our favourite accessories in new and unexpected ways.  If you're in need of a little inspo this season, take a look at our a round up of looks that have caught our eye recently below... x

At Home with Isabelle Weston of The Britten Stables

Over the past year we have had the pleasure of staying at The Britten Stables n Christchurch a number of times - our accomodation of choice whenever visiting our Cantabrian stockists and holding our vintage trunk shows. In time, we've been lucky to get to know the gorgeous owner of the landmark location, Isabelle Weston.  

Running the space is a full time job in itself and now with two gorgeous girls in tow, Adaline and Raphaela, we were thrilled when Isabelle kindly agreed to spend a few minutes with us to chat with us about the restoration, her approach to style, and how she's been dealing with life's big changes over the last few months, just in time for Mother's Day...
