Camilla and I often talk about fashion, style and beauty. About what it means to have style, who we think is truly beautiful and so on… We have both always tried to move away from major fashion trends and have always felt if you see too many people wearing the same old look then it’s time to move on. Although I truly believe that two woman can walk into the same store buy the same dress and both walk out looking completely different. One woman a stylish beauty and the other a hot mess because we all know that fashion and style does not always go together. As Yves Saint Laurent once said ” Fashions fade, style is eternal” Well, with all that said we have come up with a compilation of the woman we feel have amazing style and sense of purpose. They are the woman we continue to be inspired by and when we see a photo or editorial of them from now or the past we stop and take notice. The first being Style Icon Jane Birkin and second her daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg. We love Jane’s other daughter Lou Doillon too as well as Ines de la Francese, Chloe Sevigny, Kate Moss and of course Dree Hemingway. Dree’s ancestral background is enough to make her a style icon before her time.
Lately I have been obsessed with glasses mainly because I have to wear them all the time now due to a tear duct problem I have been having and the fact I am as BLIND as a BAT without them. I actually have to get eye surgery soon and I’m not looking forward to it. But since I have been stuck in glasses every day for the past 3 weeks I have been trying to get inspiration from other fabulous fashionable women who wear them. I have mostly been inspired by the blogger Louise from PANDORA because she is so beautiful and wears her glasses better than anyone I have ever seen.
Camilla and i have been coming up with a give away that we will post soon. We have a few ideas to sort out so until then…

WOW, It’s been a long time since our last post! Hopefully you all have been enjoying your holidays. We’ve been wrapped up with spending time with family, going to movies, shopping, gifting, baking and sewing. I can’t believe it’s soon going to be 2010! We wanted to get in our last shoot of the year so today rain or shine we were going to do it. It just so happened to be raining when we awoke but we ventured out anyways in the mist, over wet rocks with umbrellas in hand down to the beach. It was actually fun and peaceful, not too cold and it never really rained that hard so I guess I’d have to say it was a success : )
Happy New Year London!
Happy New Year Las Vegas!
And Happy New Year to everyone else
