Every little bit..

Sometimes it’s the little things that maketh the magic..the bits we mortals don’t ever see like the Fashion Week invitations we’d love to prop up on our heaving mantlepieces…so I tracked a few down..

And do you think people keep them?…One day Rodders, one day..

    It’s all in the detail. The origami & the Betsey Johnson ideas are my favotites.

      Clever isn’t it? But not as clever as the infamous flyer from an estate agents no less that came through my door..really should take some pictures of it..except can’t bear to give an Estate Agent any free publicity! I did look into how much it cost though..unfortunately £10,000. Sigh. xxx

    Of course we keep them! I was going through a box of files a few weeks ago and found my invitation to Bill Blass’s last show — held during monsoon rains, with the tent leaking. Fashion Week was suspended immediately following his 10 a.m. show in Bryant Park because a hurricane crept up the east coast and hit New York.

    I love the shoes in fuschia pink and blue…… and a dress made to match!!!
    Do love the Wedgwood cup…reminded me of doing a project on Josiah when I was 10!

      Match? Leandra? Not a hope..I bet she wore them with ancient, holey boyfriend jeans with the legs rolled up..and an orange batwing jumper..and looked amazing! xxx

    They’re pretty little treasures that everyone should keep ! Betsey Johnson’s particularly kills me ! Thanks for sharing such wonderful images and words ! XX
