I live in a little town largely unaffected by the current Isabel Marant craze sweeping across the fashion industry. To my surprise, I saw Lil L's classmate's mom, S wearing one stunning jacket after another. As you know, I get a little weak-kneed when it comes to jackets. One can't be too rich, too thin or own too many jackets. Without trying to come across as a fashion obsessed and somewhat deranged person, I surreptitiously admired her outfits at the school gate for months.

That is, until one day I could no longer help myself and pounced on S to find out where she got her latest fabulous jacket. It was Sandro amongst her well edited Isabel Marant and Iro collection. Ahh ...... a woman after my own heart. We talked excitedly for hours about Bekket, Bobby, Fred, Kady.....etc etc. I'm sure our conversation probably mystified the rest of the cafe patrons.  I mean, wow, we were planning outrageous trysts with so many men. If they only knew.

S not only has impeccable taste in clothes and shoes but I adore the retro interior decor. Houses in the town centre tend to be small and almost suffocating at times but she has managed to design hers to make the most of the natural lighting. The effect is spacious, airy, uncluttered and minimalist.

I suggested she styled a fall/winter look that is both practical and comfortable. I love the casual chic outfit which consisted of three layers but the result is still body skimming. A huge thank you to my friend, S for letting me take a peek into her enviable closet.

  4. I love the house almost more than the wardrobe (I can't say closet - it's too American). I love the lounge - it's so pared down but not minimal. Do tell her that it's lovely and I love the yellow/cream Louboutins. Now those are shoes with heels that I like! And I never realised real people had houses like that apart from in Living Etc magazine! There's a lot of love from me in this comment. I will stop now :o)

  5. Love her house and her wardrobe! My favorite may be the blazer that she is wearing, though it may be because she is just such an excellent model.

  9. I LOVE the mimimalist, earthy, mid-century decor of her house. That's what I'm striving for myself. I also laughed SO hard at your story of how you met her. :) That would be me, too, Marlene - noticing everything she wore but scared stiff to approach her to avoid sounding/looking like a weirdo or freak. LOL! So wonderful that you made a new friend that "gets" that (very important) part of you.

  22. Oh Marlene your friend has impeccable taste! I love her danish furniture, I spy a very enviable collection of chairs as well as wardrobe. I'm dying over the fact that she has not one, but 6 wishbone chairs!!
