R.I.P. Amy

Yesterday Amy Winehouse passed away at the age of 27. We are shocked and sad.

Cara Delevingne

Cara at the Serpentine gallery summer party

Cara Delevingne (yes, it’s Poppy’s younger sister!) at the Serpentine summer party in London last month. I instantly want to pack my bags and move to London when looking at it. Where else in the world could wearing a hippie-esque headband & heavy motorcycle booties to a fancy cocktail event result in the evening’s most-wowed outfit?
