New York, New York...

Today's blog is inspired by Paloma Faith.

I love her. Not just because her music is amazing, but also because her uniquely crafted style is an inspiration. I hope you enjoy my ode to her wardrobe, handmade style...

This 'Taw' from Piksipiksi is something I would love to wear but don't quite have the hair/ style confidence/ joie de vivre to pull off. Paloma would look incredible in it though. I love the playfullness of it and the composition of the image is perfect. Love!

Ooh this is so gorgeous! Very Alice in wonderland meets edwardian chic. Perfect! You can find it here in Mamaslittlebabies wonderful shop.

I'm in awe of anyone who has the patience and precision needed for dressmaking. Particularly when is something as beautiful and elegant as this from Prizysebastian.

At the moment I'm having a love affair with leather. No, not the sordid kind of love affair (cheeky!). The kind of leather that is butter-soft and feels like it contains a life time of memories and fun. And that's what EightSeasons wristlet evokes for me. I can just see it draped over Paloma's wrist too...

And finally an item from a shop I've loved forever, Post. The tights in this shop are incredible! Every pair a masterpiece. But the Flamboyant peacock feather on these is very Miss Faith.

Well I hope you enjoyed that. I leave you with the video to my favourite Paloma Faith track, New York. Enjoy!

Rachel this is brill! Did you see Paloma on Never Mind the Buzzcocks a few weeks ago? She was excellent on the Hootenanny, I wasn't sure about the "New York" dress but I loved the blue dress/cape combo.
Also, I just used the phrase joie de vivre :)
