In case you've missed it...

Who's there, who's gone, who won and who failed. In this crazy world of fashion things are  really changing on a daily basis. So during the past week except Balmain Glitter Girl lost her designer, one shoe went to the court to solve the problem between Christian Louboutin and Yves Saint Laurent House. Famous fashion journalist Hilary Alexander will say goodbye to Telegraph, and Carine is busy styling Chanel’s fall-winter campaign in Paris with Freja.
Well apart from all these who-where-what issues, I love to read a  bit different kind of stories…those that are smart, interesting and warm. Here are those that I was reading and seeing during the past week. Lay back, click and enjoy!

1. Spiegel; Fashion Is a Matter of Taste, Not Money
Interview with my dear Carine Roitfeld, who will always be the “Editor of French Vogue’s spirit and smell” She is a smart lady, surprisingly modest, and according to stories very kind person.
“Of course, it's not like we're working in a hospital; we don't save lives every month. We just make decisions about skirt lengths, about an inch more or an inch less.”, is just one of the smart quotes she pronounced.
2. Haute World; The Oxfam Curiosity Shop
One of my favorite fellow bloggers visits Oxfam Curiosity Shop at Selfridges in London. Find out what she saw there.
3. Lucy In Disguise blog: Meet Paddy Egan- in-house tailor for Lucy in Disguise
Did you know that vintage store Lucy In Disguise has in-house tailor? For free. Oh mine.
4. Boston.com; Bill Cunningham New York
"We all get dressed for Bill," says Anna Wintour.  Everyone loves Bill and documentary about him  is must-see film.
5. Sally Jane Vintage; Freedom Two
Beautiful collection from my favorite New Zealand brand, Lonely Hearts. Too lovely items and photos, captured by photographer Sara Orme.
6. RDuJour; Gypset Style by Julia Chaplin
Who are Gypsetters?
7. The House of Isla Blog; spell CHAOS
What a studio, what a view!
8. Into The Gloss; Costanza Pascolato
Vogue Brazil columnist looks totally fabulous. 72 and awesome!
9. Frankie Magazine Blog; pre-easter cheer
Frankie loves small joys. Me too. It’s time of the year for the bunnies!
10. La Mignonette; Moi, je veux une barrette!
 Barrette in the hair. Oh so chic!

lovely post, I'm gonna go check out some of those links now :D


Carine has really done it for me. her words were of a rare and genuine humilty not fabricated of "she's totally like us" of course not she's wearing custom made shoes. love her take on fashion being about style not money, fashion of the working class appeals more since their making do with what they have, not having things handed to them. adore sally jane vintage, so darling~!
