From Japan With Love

Quirky presents from Japan..

The most beautiful tape. Taking my packaging to a whole new level.

Sweets far too pretty to eat.

Quite possibly the most amazing erasers I have owned to date.

I will no longer be satisfied with normal post-its!

Felt specifically for shortcake creations.

Betty Holmes

Before I am lost to the Spring 2011 catwalk reports, I want to to celebrate a fantastic style of Winter 2010/2011. Betty Draper meet Sherlock Holmes.

Louis Vuitton.

For me it began last July when American Vogue featured the fashion story 'Magnificent Obsession'. Peter Lindbergh photographed Natalia Vodianova and Ewan McGregor- Fall collections via a 1950s domestic love story. Stunning.

On the left Prada wool and silk dress and Prada handbag. On the right Dries Van Noten wool dress.

Marc Jacobs strapless silk ball dress.

Oh Betty Draper where would we be without your style influences and attitude. Thank you January Jones and Janie Bryant costume designer extraordinaire.

Add a touch of Sherlock Holmes..

... and you have the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 show. Delicious.

...add some stunning prints and you also have Prada's Fall 2010 Collection.

It's been a beautiful winter.
