Style: Elegant Materials
















Luxurious lipsticks to fine leathers.

Good morning to you! I hope that this week has been lovely so far — productive with a little fun, if possible. Mine has been most inspiring and surprising. In fact, I've just found out that I won this beautiful fashion print from (and by the talented) Nancy Marcus, of Nancy Marcus Design. I can hardly wait to see it and place it in my home... as for today's post, following an almost retro, modern, open home, came inspiration from makeup to handbags — beautiful and plush materials, whether that be a smooth lipstick, luxurious leathers or fine metals. That is certainly my weak point, as I cannot pass a gorgeous handbag of buttery leather without touching it or go too long without re-applying a sweep of my favorite lipstick... what are your favorite materials?

  4. It's hard to beat leather. The smell, the texture.... I just adore it. I also love real fur. I am hoping to order some fur-on leathers in the coming seasons to work with. Could be interesting.
    Speaking of interesting.... her fingernail polish is very interesting.

  6. Sarah, what a super beautiful post this is!! So delightful. I LOVE the handbags and the incredibly gorgeous make-up photography. As to your question, my favorite material would be supple, soft and thick. Preferably leather, a soft sweater or a smooth lipstick. My (secret) wish would be to one day own a bag made from Ostrich leather...

  11. Hi, Sarah! What a lovely print you've won. This is such a wonderful post, with romantic looks and beautiful handbags. I guess among my favourite materials would be fine leather, silk and cashmere or a soft, smooth lipstick. Wishing you a wonderful week! :) Ada

  12. Sarah, you are speaking my language... lipstick and handbags! My first thought at photo #1 was... "Oh, I LOVE that lipstick!" Then I saw the pink handbag and thought..."Must have, must have, must have!" So much prettiness over here all the time! Hope your week is going well. xo

  13. Sarah, you find the most beautiful images. I love the handbags, and her makeup is perfect. Sometimes I think it is more difficult to look unmade up.
    Have a nice day.
