I really loved discovering Albam this young menswear clothier in the heart of Soho. Thank you Nigel for being such a great representative of the company. We really hit it off and I loved his positivity for the brand as well as his own aspirations to become a tailor. Attention to details is everything.
I was in London just for the day and I had to pay a visit to one of my favorite American stores: Anthropologie.
I loved the selection of designers but the best part of the visit was meeting Sales Associates Betsy and Agata. Lovely ladies who really like what they do. Can’t beat that!
I think that I told you I was going to be in London. Well, I’m back and it was amazing as usual. Love the vibe, the energy, the unique shops and the coffe shops….God yes! No attitude, just smiles, great service and people that love what they do.
I had the best lunch during my day in London. No words can describe.
Just get there as soon as you can. More from London later. But first….POLPO!
Among all of the great furniture I saw at Marché Vernaison I discovered some beautiful ceramics by Jacques Blin at the stand owned by Jean Luc Jaouen. Thank you Monsieur Jaouen for educating me about Blin. He really took the time to tell me about the pieces I loved (pictured here). His stand is also full of wonderful furniture from the fifties and sixties. The next time I’m up there there’s a couple of pieces that I’m ready to buy…
Be sure to visit Mr. Jaouen at his stand:

Good Sunday to you all,
I’m off to the market. Just received some life altering news and not even that will ruin this day. I will find comfort and reassurance in the smile I will give each and every person I meet.
Like the good books says: This too shall pass.
I feel better already. I truly do.
P.S. This is one of my favorite stands at the market. A post is coming about this amazing place this week!
I will attend a wedding in Copenhagen, yes COPENHAGEN this summer. I can hardly wait. Question: What kind of dress should I wear to a wedding? I’ve been told that it will not be as warm and as a balmy during that time of year (it is Scandinavia, ok?). I really like this first look, it’s beautiful, creative, and looks comfortable.
The second one, is just perfect, but would be appropriate for a wedding?
What do you think? If you have any links to designers, stores, etc. to share with me that would be great. I’m going to hit the stores and the flea markets this for jewelry as well.
Have a great weekend and thank you for your help in advance!
