Spring, come back!

Winter is hanging on here - it was minus 13C this morning. Pulled out my trusty cashmere wrap to keep me warm , but dressed it up with the blouse and belt.

I am experimenting with textures more these days - I like the way the cashmere, silk and leather work together.

Cashmere sweater - Club Monaco (my big splurge this winter)
Top - Jacob Annex
Belt - BR
Pants - Club Monaco
Boots - Aqua Italia (via Stylesense)

Happy New Year!

Going to celebrate Navroz (New Year.)

This is the most beautiful thing I own...a hand-embroidered salwar kameez from India - bought in a flurry on the last day of my trip. I always struggle with whether to wear this and risk it being damaged. Sometimes I think I should just hang it on the wall in my living room and admire it...

Walking into this store on a busy street in Bhandra was a revelation - racks and racks of beautiful silks, all embroidered with impossibly delicate designs. Pale lemon, pistachio green, creamy white... It was so hard to choose just one!

Playing with Proportions

Finally got this dress on sale after waiting for months! I love the look of well-tailored grey wool - something very buttoned up and English about it.

I broke out my red clutch to play with proportions a bit...and also to hold all the crap that I can't fit in those teensy weensie clutches...
