Night at the museum

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


If you haven’t seen the Postmodernism exhibition at the V&A yet, may I politely suggest you get a wiggle on as it ends in two weeks. I recommend that you go on a Friday evening when the V&A is open ’til 10pm. I went yesterday with Hips Like Boys at 6pm and we practically had the place to ourselves. Continue reading

From the vaults: Hotel Room With A View – Bruce Weber

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

I like coffee table books, especially photography ones, but I like books I can read too. This is a book I bought years ago that I often re-read. It’s full of advice snippets and interesting insights from Bruce Weber about his work process along with – of course – some beautiful and effortless-looking portrait photos. I like this quote on the back of the book… Continue reading

Clic clac clocks

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Did you have a lovely Christmas? I was lucky in that I managed to have a very quiet, spoilt Christmas at home (I like to be extremely lazy on Christmas day, it’s the one day when I can just lie around eating, reading and sleeping) and received some beautiful presents. Continue reading

Trend alert: couture coats

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


Damn you COS, I go into the store seeking Christmas pressy inspiration and come out with another coat I don’t need and a pair of socks. But how could I resist? This tailored couture-style coat has a really good cut, is nicely finished (I inspected from all angles) and has bracelet sleeves to accommodate all the Iris Apfel-esque bangles I plan to buy for the next season. This to me is a great day-to-evening coat. It’s not bulky but its cocoon shape means you can get a couple of layers underneath it if you must. Continue reading

Quote of the day

Stern words from Iris Apfel, whose make-up range for MAC launches in January

Introducing Avenue 32

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


“We want Avenue 32 to offer a fresh and interesting mix of established and lesser known brands as we were both so tired of seeing the same brands on every single website or in every department store,” says Roberta Benteler, founder of the just-launched etail site that aims to give those brands more control over how they’re presented.

Deborah Turbeville shoots Valentino SS12 campaign

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Loving everything about this pic from Valentino’s SS12 campaign. Strong and romantic with the signature pop of Valentino red – so nice to see them use Deborah Turbeville to shoot in lieu of the usual suspects. Wonder if she shot using film and Polaroid? Continue reading

Good things come in small Chanel-shaped packages

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Top of my Spring-Summer 2012 fantasy shopping list is Chanel’s ‘package’ bag complete with chain ‘string’. Utterly impractical, utterly adorable. Alas, I don’t even know if it’s going into production. Continue reading

Winter sunnies alert: Sunpocket Gold

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Booked your trip to the slopes for some post-Christmas posturing? Meh – me neither. But I will be poncing about the streets of NW10 in my Woolrich and aviators at the first chink of sunlight. You know I’m all about winter sunglasses and these folding Sunpocket Gold sunnies are speaking to me with their slightly seventies styling and 24 carat gold plated lenses (um, no idea what the benefit of gold lenses is but it sounds very fancy). Another selling point: they fold up and come in a dinky leather pouch. Available here.
