So, in case you are not following her blog already, this is the time to track Rosalind’s journey as a writer and blogger.
Her style is as described by Because London very Pre-Raphaelite, which I somewhat agree, as you can see traced of that subtle rustic beauty coming through her Long hair,the dreamy eyes, and now that I am saying that I can actually imagine her as a modern-day Ophelia in the famous Sir John Everett Millais painting.
I will let you be the best judge of my imagination.
Also a subtle reminder for all you guys who would like to attend the London Bloggers Meet November 2012, Please leave a comment with your email so that I can send you a mail.
With the Winter officially setting and rumours of a mild snowfall too, I was more than tempted to snuggle in my duvet and not venture out at all today!
The temperature is hitting the lower end single digits (Read as 0 degrees) which gives us a chance to get our fur coats,scarves,gloves and everything else possibly spelling out “WARMTH” out! Thus explains me going through My London Street Style photos folder to pull out some “Comfort” images!
Considering Halloween is around the corner,and Tangerine has been the colour of the year,all the pumpkins and warm colours made me choose this picture from the London Fashion Week,when I was out and about clicking Street Style images.
This man actually reminds me of one of my very good friend back in India, Mohit Rai, who is a freelance stylist, and I can so imagine him strutting this off with absolute swan like grace!I would love to shoot a few images of him in a cozy knit!
Orange is one of the best colours to invest in this Fall Winter, for outerwear, Please see my trending board here for more inspiration.

I have thought many a time to feature Marion Cotillard on my Monday Muse for a vintage and retro looks made classic with elegance and subtle glamour.
Her french style is alluring and very hard to nail down as she is quite experimental.
However this is a quick one to share with you all the latest video of the Lady Dior web documentary series La Métamorphose, and how secrets are revealed about the BAR SUIT and the very essential point of history THE NEW LOOK.
The feminism is oozing out with Marion wearing some of the original creations of Christian Dior himself.
Statutory Warning: Colour Explosion! Italy-born Elisa Nalin is no new to the fashion Industry,with a straight track record of graduating from Instituto Europeo del Design (IED),and securing a job at Costume National and eventually the director at Samsonite’s Shoe Line, this fashionista is a self-proclaimed SHOE ADDICT! (Which one of us is not??). Leaving Italy behind, and taking to Paris as the new home, Elisa started her styling career and soon had a great portfolio with Dazed & Confused,i-D and Vogue Nippon and eventually for brands and department stores like Le Bonmarchéand Benetton… Her Staple:
While sourcing images, I just realised Elisa has a great knack of teaming wardrobe basics in a certain colour co-ordinated style,thus curated these images in a certain pattern to show my flow of thoughts. THE BLUE TROUSERSP.s: If I have tempted you to buy a pair of Blue Tailored trousers, Click here on the MANGO Website for great tapered look OR on the Farfetch website for a Kenzo Pair of Wide leg Trousers. THE PENCIL SKIRT P.s: Great Bargain spotted on this DVF Blue Pencil Skirt on Farfetch.com. THE SOLID COLOUR STORYP.S:Tips to keep in Mind:
Okay to wear Matchy-Matchy pieces till you team them well. As Seen in Above with Purple Scarf and Skirt.
Stay within the same colour family. Warm with Warm colours and Cold with Cold tones.
Go with Bold Accessory to add points of interest to your staples….AND DONT FORGET TO WEAR THE SMILE.
THE HEAD SCARF A simple Patterned Head scarf can take you a long way. Remember to pin it at the back to secure it lest it slips away. Hope you enjoy this post. Please Share your views and love! Love Di xx Images Sources: Here, Here,Here,Here,Here,Here, Here,Here,Here and Here
The finale of the “Pardon My French” series is a visual diary/montage of Paris Fashion Week and an insight into the world through Garance’s eyes (or lens)! It cracked me up and made me love her even more.
Covering bits and bobs of her borrowing clothes from her sartorial partner Scott (Schuman), to running for the short Louis Vuitton Show to dancing in the rain and traces of the after party, this last episode is a great way to wrap up the season.
P.s: My Monday Muse makes a quick appearance in this video, any guesses?? To be continued…
This picture got my shutter fingers in an all time high at London Fashion Week.
I was truly trigger happy and as low as I stooped or as close I got,I never got enough of this MUST HAVE accessory this Fall Winter 2012.
I had a few friends come in from India,and they wanted to feel the culture(or sub culture) existing in London,so we made a quick dash to East London,crossed through Spitalfields Market,stopped by at the Lomography store,went to The Tent (London Design Festival) and finally hit brick lane!
It’s surprising you can see so much in such a little time in London while still see nothing!!
I find street style in East London inspiring since it always is idiosyncratic to that area. In fact,I was in India last month, and someone mentioned (referring to another designer) she has a very “East London” style, which just throws you off a little considering a small area of London has a distinct identity in another continent!
It usually takes me 1 hour to source images, and 1 hour to edit and write and post, but I must say, This Monday Men has got my fingers aching for more!
You must have spotted Mr.Charming Justin Doss in Tommy Ton’s tumblr or GQ’s street style, and boy oh boy, this man is sizzling with style and panache.The word around the town is, he is a “Man of who wears many hats”, and why not, apart from the obvious picture clues!
Justin Has has had a an excellent and a VERY steep career path with stints at Ralph Lauren, Sid Mashburn and Barneys where he was one of the top menswear buyers, and then replacing the very Senior Lisa Cohen after her retirement post her 28-year tenure at GQ. May I add, Justin is all of 27 years of age!! PHEWWW!!
His style: is an European Man in New York, with an eloquent taste in Sartorial dressing, worn always with a smug smile and may almost know all the milliners in town, considering his Hat collections!
Having said this, I must insist on all of you checking out my friend Amrit’s Wandering Brummell blog where he curates and blogs all about excellent Men’s style!Keep it up Mate!
I Came across this video on Jake Davis‘s blog. Details and expressions captured beautifully!!
Since the most trending topic on my twitter feed is #PFW, I can’t stop thinking of all things Parisienne..which includes my holiday from last year.
Taking a different turn on my Monday Muse from Editors and street style fashionistas, I have decided to feature fellow blogger (Our Blogger Community is real strong, as you must have guessed by now) Haleigh Walsworth, an American based out of my fav city in the world PARIS.
Haleigh shares her views on her blog Making Magiquewriting about her travel-escapedes, Chez elle (her priced possessions), and her fashion tastes!
It is genuine blog with a feel good factor in every post, a blog where you can connect to her even without meeting her, and that for me is addictive. Haleigh also owns an online store called REBELLE which has an excellent (and quirky just like her) taste of accessories,clothes and ickle finds! I love when bloggers curate their own store, it shows their style so much more!
I love her culmination of French Romance teamed with the American dreaminess in her pictures and videos, her style is effortless and comfortable and I especially wanted to highlight that!
p.s: Couldn’t help but include images of the Macarons..Love everything about our favourite Ladurée.
