Back in December, I was dashing down Picadilly to meet someone, and this delightful girl, Nicola, was smiling at me in my Motel Rocks leopard coat. Mutual leopard coat admiration. I was still doing my Great Motel Rocks Challenge so we did a little shoot.
I've been saving up these shots (& now, I can't decide which to use, so you might get some other versions another time, cupcakes!) but I didn't want to overwhelm you with leopard shots. Which is tricky, as everone's wearing leopard in London in one form or another (and at times, more than once in the same look).
But now I have a reason: to talk about the colour griege. It's been on my mind for a while. I've read that Jackie Kennedy liked a colour between grey and beige, which she called griege. And now, wouldn't you know it, Chanel has come out with the latest limited edition colour, 'trapeze', or, as the fashion editors are calling it, griege. It's the new jade.
Greetings from the frozen tundra that is currently Palm Beach County. Mr. Dot has found frozen fish when he tried to fish (catch & release) the lake outside the deck, which breaks my heart, but hopefully the cold spell is over and the crops will survive and the fish will re-generate.
Our hearts go out to the people of Haiti.
