three camels and a bit of tomato









The only time I like red is when it's tomato red, used ideally with some hot pink, and camel.

These are three of my favourite camel looks, all shot within minutes, after the Burberrys show this season. Which (if any) is your favourite?

Joanna Hillman's camel and white is a winner for me!

Thank you, Lauren - I had no idea who either woman was. I found this on her:

I have a good friend who's a stylist, has been working with Harper's Bazaar recently. I'll ask if she knows her. And yeah, I've been thinking that camel and white are looking really fresh to me at the moment. Suddenly wearing white with camel - like I've been doing this winter - makes everything feel clean and new.

Thanks for stopping by!

Red looks so cool with camel! I really like the first one-it's so perfectly put together, and then that necklace is just like...wow!

Would you like to follow each other?

I love all three! Amazing necklace in the first shot and where's that skirt from? But the second picture with the white is my favourite and makes me want to be brave and wear a red lip somnetimes....

Wendy: first, thanks for stopping by. Now I'm in the mood to wear white with camel - think I will tomorrow in fact! And definitely be brave - check out Odyssey's post, you'll see some great looks with red lips (S, you are the best advocate I know for red lips).

I hope you WILL be brave, Wendy! If you want to send me a shot of you in red lips, maybe I can work it into a post (jill@haybooks.com). I wish I had your courage. I just can't. I'm such a wimp.

In fact, I feel a post coming on, on the subject. There must be a word for 'fear of wearing red lipstick.'

love the look of red and camel. I think especially that tomato red looks good with camel.

Maya - dear friend - good to see you're back. Will visit you too - we've all been involved in our real lives, posting and commenting less. Hope you're well. xox

You were outside Burberry. I didn't see you. Mind you it is so busy there it is not that surprising. See you soon though :) Xxxx
