Frida Love

Slightly in love with Frida Khalo at present. I think her whole look and her are so inspiring. This post has no relevance to anything as such but just thought I'd share the Frida Love.......Enjoy.

Yokoooooooooooooo

I have loved this lady for so long now and i'm not quite sure why it's taken me so long to dedicate a post to her. I will keep this short and sweet as the photos on here and her Etsy shop most definitely do speak for themselves, however she does deserves lots of praise as her work is indeed fabulous. Self made knit goddess Yokoo creates beautiful hand made oversize knitted scarfs, hats and individual accessories using chunky yarns and bold colour. Not only this but her unique approach to the styling of her work and photographs add a certain humor and personality, that I love and have not seen anywhere else before. You can have a look and purchase all of her works from her Etsy shop and you can also have a look at the accessories line that she recently designed for one of my favourite shops Anthropologie. Below are just some of my favorites from her knitted delights and for you to feast your eyes on.

Pitti Pitti

It's been a while since I posted on here so I thought I would come back with something ultra interesting to write about for my grand return. First of all.....Happy New Year! (better late than never) as we are still in January I feel it's still acceptable to say it. I have had a cracking but work fuelled start to the year and have already had my first jet set out of the country, having just come back from a fabulous trip to Italy! I stayed in beautiful Florence or Firenze for you Italian savvy people and also visited Pisa, which was full of pretty roads buildings and a tower that looked like it was definitely about to fall over. Aside from eating my body weight in food, bathing in ice cream and drinking an oceans worth of red wine (with the odd martini thrown in there too) I had the chance to visit Pitti Fillati, a knitwear trade show that takes place in Florence every year showcasing the future trends in knitwear design from companies and suppliers all over the world. Overwhelmed by reems of wool and samples I can happily say that the show left me feeling very inspired indeed. Here are a few photos from my trip to give you a taste of a lil bit of Italia....















































Take me back
