Dreaming in colour

Cute and ever so slightly creepy, taxidermy dyed bunnies found here

My sister-in-law Ellen recently penned what can only be described as her style manifesto (here) on her delicious blog Vagabondiana. I completely adore Ellie's preference for what she calls 'Catholic-wear' (lots of navy, smock dresses, bibs and bows) however I would personally find it difficult to sum up my own look as succinctly. If only. When it comes to style I am a chameleon. I am as attracted to a vintage tea dress as I am to a pair of Ashish spiked track pants. You could say I'm fickle (I'd prefer open minded). There is in fact only one style choice that I seem to have remained committed to over the years, this being the colour combination pink and turquoise, or variations of them (coral and jade, blush and aqua, shell and mint, peach and duck-egg). For some reason I have always been drawn to this combo and have found much evidence of this love in my house and wardrobe (see further below). Unsurprisingly Sofia Coppola's 'Marie Antoinette' is a firm favourite due to the lashings of sherbety pinks and blues from start to finish.

Pinks and blues of all shades feature heavily in my own boudoir (below)

I love everything about this mint Topshop Unique dress, from the colour obviously, to the zips, each one finished with a tiny horseshoe.

This fluoro-peach lacy number (below) is a recent purchase bought purely for the colour. I shall loll about in it for Mr Lola's benefit now and again then pop it back on the wall to admire like art.

A pink and turquoise dream.......

Much swooning occurred when Mr Lola and I passed Laduree in Paris last summer (me, not him!)
