Spun Sugar

SAs you can see, I’m still in a sweet and sentimental mood from yesterday and thought what a perfect day to post a few of my favourite spring “confections”.  I am LOVING all these gossamer layers, tissue thin fabrics, and spun sugar colours.  And if I can remember (anybody??! Help!) whose shoe this above, it is definitely on my wish list.  As is almost the entire  Nina Ricci  collection, and whilst I’m having sugar spun dreams, I might as well take a heaping spoonful of the Chanel collection as well- yum!

I took this photo from the new Laduree book “Sucre”.  My friend Katy who lives in Paris just sent it to me.  It is completely divine- the text is in french, the photography is swoon-worthy, and the packaging (the petite book is softly padded, and comes in the Laduree pistachio green box) is nothing less than what you would expect from one of the prettiest shops in the world. Merci Katy !!

Katy also sent me this from her iphone the other night – the colossal  tower of ice cream they serve every night at Le Grand Venice restaurant in Paris! I had to think of Chanel Spring collection.

If I were a fairy this would be my summer house




  1. SP ~ Is that Frida in pink….how uniquely wonderful and a rarity in itself. And the first Chanel dress is to die for…..

  2. I’m thinking what separates me from my “girly girl” friends, is that I quickly scrolled past the fashion photos to linger on the confectioneries.

  3. Okay this is my favourite post ever! So pink and springy. I love those Lanvin shoes and I must go to Paris for that ice cream (never been there but gotta go). Cupcake to die for. This post totally brings to mind our good friend Linny C. Pink, pink and more pink.

Would love to hear from you!
