Shopping! Here's a small selection of the vintage dresses we're selling!

Just a taster of the vintage dresses my partner Kate Bentley and I are selling ( MasonBentley) at our trunkshow on 17th and 18th of May. Everything is wonderful condition, all washed, laundered- whatever it takes... we call it 'Reloved'- upcycling is the trend! Most of our stock is silk. More info to follow this (blog)spot!

Ode to Kate and Rupert's house!

Kate's crockery cupboard

Amber( not K 'n 'R's dog- but she looks perfect with the floor!)also she's more of a topaz in colour!

Matilda 9K'n R's dog)

The other thing that is so nice about Kate and Rupert's house is that although kate has taken a great deal of time withthe design and finding lovely things to put in it the kids just tear around in it having a great time...

Oh did I mention-Kate can cook too... Coffe and hazlenut meringues, squidgy in the middle.....

Kates lamb shank- cooked with gratings of 70 percent chocolate.....

shopping: butterflies in their hair

Look at these lovely butterfly clips bought from the V and A shop for a satisfying £3 each. Magical because they are so real looking. They are on springs so they flutter in the wind.... here's Florence.
 My friend Kate got them. Kate is cool . Kate has style. I'm going to post some pics of her house right now!

And here's Minky in hers.

They supercede fairy wings in Flo's opinion

Thought I'd post more of my illustrations- perhaps the right someone will see them and help me with a job!These are from a prospective project I did for Chanel- the idea was for a 2nd line ( perhaps a bit cheaper and a bit more casual- although looks quite dressed up here) I called it 'Mlle'...

style and interiors-Easter flowers

Handpicked Easter wild and garden flowers form my friend Kate's garden(where we spent Easter in style- more of that later)
To me Easter must be yellow and green and maybe, as a nod to all the gorgeous abundant blue flowers at this time, blue. Here are mine and Kate's favourites. A lot of the weekend was spent eating or preparing topeat so flower arranging was a crucial part of the preparation!
