Elizabeth Taylor // Style Inspiration

She's the ultimate sassy lady! Seriously love her. Cant imagine bringing the fierce channeling of Lizzie without a classic red lipstick in your back pocket. Shop my take on Elizabeths sassy style look: !function(doc,s,id){ var e, p, cb; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; cb = new Date().getTime().toString(); p = '//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js?cb=1487756805809?cb=' + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === 'object'){ if(doc.readyState === 'complete'){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, 'script', 'shopsensewidget-script');    ...


Rose Quartz

So you might be aware that this year Pantone decided not to have a colour of the year instead they decided that a blending of two colours would add a softer take on a "colour of the year". The chosen swatches are Rose Quartz (a rose hue) and Serenity (a cooler tranquil blue). They have claimed that these colours "psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security" and "reflect connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace".  For me personally, I didn't quite get it. In past years the Pantone colour has definitely had an impact or a stronger grab of my aesthetic. When I first reviewed these colours I was underwhelmed. Maybe because I couldn't place them in my everyday life - I'm not a light, pastel colour girl...


Cy Twombly

Ive been examining Cy Twombly's work for a project I'm doing at my work. I hadn't heard of him before and after spending a bit of time getting to know his work - I must say I'm a fan. I think Elusive Muse put it best when describing his style "Although at first glance the graffiti-like scribbles and scratches of Cy Twombly‘s work might resemble art made by a naughty child of Jackson Pollock, it is nothing of the kind: it is the work of an erudite, sophisticated, and emotional painter."
