Bing, Bowie, Moss & Memories

.


The seemingly ageless, legendary model and style icon Kate Moss graces yet ANOTHER Vogue cover;

This time it’s French Vogue’s December “Christmas in Music” issue.

.

We all have our favorite Christmas tunes- those that bring memories flooding back, hopefully mostly good!

For me, David Bowie tugs my heart strings on two levels during the holidays. He and Marc Bolan were my absolute FAVOURITISTEVER, so few were my Christmas Lists that didn’t have David Bowie and Marc Bolan on them…and BTW, I mean David Bowie & Marc Bolan, the actual men, not just the albums.

“Aim high, you never know” has always been my motto!

 Sadly, Santa only ever delivered them in one dimension, but you’ve gotta keep that Christmas Dream alive- there’s always next year!

When David Bowie’s rendition of “Little Drummer Boy” with Bing Crosby first surfaced I thought it was just the coolest thing ever. Imagine two wildly successful performers from such different planets coming together to sing this classic Christmas tune?  Of course these days, everyone is dueting with everyone, including Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett, but back in the day, this felt pretty special:

What self respecting Child of Glitter would not be seduced by these Mui Mui  pumps?!

Fancy a cuppa tea in these gorgeous flame colored tea glasses from Mariage Freres? I’d love to randomly scatter several of them across a white table cloth at Christmas; put votives in some and puffs of narcissus  in others accompanied by mossy green linen napkins.

Wouldn’t that be gorgeous?!

Tis not the first time Our Lady of Moss has paid tribute to Our Thin White Duke on the cover of Vogue.

This was such a great issue I actually kept it from May, 2003

And speaking of rock royalty, this is my all time favorite dead posh tea cozy, also from Mariage Freres

It comes in many delectable colours- makes a lovely and unique gift!  Sting-eat your heart out- it comes in black & silver too. Maybe Trudy will get you one :)

Party On Red!
