Beachside coolness

Just loved this simple use of really glossy white paint in a cafe on Es Trenc beach. I wonder if it will be as effective back in a garden in south London?

Very easy Vogue pattern circa 1976

Ok, so I made up the date, it might not exactly from 1976, but I do remember my mum making my dad a dressing gown from this pattern, way back when, in the mists of time, when dressing gowns where little short things, about the length of Sparticus's tunic.

When Kev and I needed new dressing gowns, I looked no further than my mum's stash of old paper patterns and now we are both sporting very smart new kimono style dressing gowns, his in black and white checked gingham (very masculine) and mine in a pink silk I bought more than a decade ago.

I hasten to add that they are both the long/midi version length, not the little shortie one and that the sleeves keep getting caught on door handles, but that just makes me want to change our door handles, not our gorgeous new kimono style dressing gowns.

Location:Back home in Clapham,

Uniqlo ticks my boxes

Let me count the ways I love this....
1. Great old style monitors
2. Fab use of neon
3. It's a collab with Antoni Alison and Uniqlo
4. I'm loving the use of the NOW word
5. Did I mention it was Uniqlo?

I love a nice crate, don't you?

And this one is extra specially clever with a built in table football. Don't you love it?

..... a bucking whale

.....some uber cool door stickers

Curiouser and curiouser

Judith Clark strikes again
with a perfectly formed installation
in the Selfridges shoe galleries
showing some very strange items of footwear
all presented on a series of toile like shapes
representing the original wearer

Judith Clark's ways of thinking
and doing is a thing of
the most normal of the items
is this women's button up boot
 from the 19th Century
a tiny chelsea boot for a bound foot
from the 19th Century

one item is a chelsea boot
for a sheep
also from the 19th century

and lastly
a magnificent pair
of clown shoes
