The BBC's Sherlock

The jury is out! I have a infatuation with print and pattern. Is it healthy? I'm not sure.  I was just on the Zoffany websight and I was like... Oh I know that wallpaper it was used in the BBC's Sherlock.

As well as the BBC's Sherlock being this most modern and riveting rendition of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic, it is also full of stunning costume and set design. Great job BBC. Can't wait for series 3 in the autumn.

Holding My Breath

I'm sure many of you are just as excited as i am about the up and coming release of The Great Gatsby. Baz Luhrmann never fails to create a fashion frenzy.  As a teen I didn't love countless boy bands. I had Romeo and Juliet and Moulin Rouge.  Sparkle, frills, tropical fish/prints, religious icons, India and sound tracks to die for. Yes please time for my next fix. Long over due

A 1950's period piece would not be quite right without a polka dot print. This one is fab with the hand drawn wild flower motifs.
