Wishing You A Beautiful Week ~

Fashion
I hope had you a most beautiful weekend.  I enjoyed the last days of summer break at my parent’s lake home…

Did you catch the closing ceremony of the Olympics?

I was not expecting the tribute to British fashion as showcased by the iconic Brit models sashaying to David Bowie’s ‘Fashion’ .
Kate in Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen
Naomi also glitters in gold McQueen and topped with a gold leaf hair accessory
Georgia May Jagger wore a Victoria Beckham Gold metal fabric cocktail dress
David Gandy sported a Paul Smith Gold Suit and tie, and Jourdan Dunn wears a white and Gold leather dress by Jonathan Saunders paired with a gold feather headdress by the talented Stephen Jones
Lily Cole {far left} donned a feminine Erderm embroidered and lace cocktail dress 
Stella Tennant, Lily Cole, Karen Elson, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, and David Gandy
Although it may have garnered mixed reviews, I felt it was a fabulous interlude that did British Fashion proud.

Did you know that Architecture was once considered an Olympic sport?  I learned this whilst perusing Architectural Digest online.  Apparently, so was town planning, “mixed sculpturing,” compositions for orchestra, and various other creative subcategories part of the Summer Olympics from 1912 until 1952.  Entries were to be sports related ~ designs of swimming pools, etc.  I found this very interesting.  You can read more about it here
Now, I am checking a few last minute projects off my list.  So many new and wonderful things in the works that I will soon be sharing with you… for now, I’m wishing you a lovely week! 
xoxo, B
