Going to the races never looked so chic.
Good morning! With warm, moist, homemade apple cake and a cup of coffee, I feel that the day and week are already on the right track. (no pun intended) Each Autumn, I feel somewhat inspired by equestrian style—the jackets, boots, gloves and such... a classic look, really. I find that Ralph Lauren and Hermès do such a beautiful job of creating some simplified and elegant pieces with equestrian inspiration. I would love to purchase a few perhaps... Do you enjoy this style, also?
+ Monday's finds: preparing for a Vogue masquerade ball / sweet + chic teacup lights / stay at The Seven Hotel in Paris: from James Bond to Marie Antoinette, a room for different styles—what's yours? / a romantic, silk–chiffon komono / a gorgeous, modern light + Finnish shop to visit / a whimsical video of Elsa+Edith scarves shot here in Vancouver, with the assistance of one of my favorite local talents, Wendy Williams–Watt, of Grace / to want: a petite, French boudoir phone / a Parisian scarf to love / a beautiful, simple, vintage rug / a gorgeous plaster piece to hang / a grand Victorian (for sale) in Australia / in the pink / and, lastly, loose tie belts in an array of pretty colors... wishing you a perfect start to the new week!
