Designer classic


A second-hand Hermes Birkin bag has sold for £162,500 ($217,144) in London, a new European record for the most expensive handbag sold at auction.
The 2008 Himalaya Birkin, with an 18-carat white gold diamond encrusted lock, exceeded its list price of £100,000 - £150,000 on Tuesday.
The record for a bag sold at auction - also a Hermes Birkin - is £253,700 ($380,000), set in Hong Kong in 2017.
It is the "undisputed most valuable bag in the world," Christie's said. 
It was first time the bag had been offered in a European auction, said Matthew Rubinger, international director at the auctioneers.
The 10-year-old niloticus crocodile bag was said to be in "grade 2 condition" - with no obvious flaws. 
It measures just 30cm wide - smaller than the original Birkin handbag - and is made from nilo crocodile hide and features diamonds.

Happy Valentine's Day from Paris!


In Paris couples put a padlock with their initials written on, on to bridges
on the Siene to show their love for each other.



The Je t'aime wall on Square des Abbesses spells out "I love you" in every language.

Dior exhibition in Paris


I was fortunate enough to catch the Dior exhibition in Paris before it end at the
beginning of January.

The exhibition was full of amazing, beautiful dress, accessories and clothes.

The fabrics were just awesome!

So much detail in the embroidery.

The colours, fabrics and textures are so easy to transfer to your home.

For example an embroidered cushion and green throw would be perfect
accessories for Spring to update your home.

Paris street art


On a recent trip to Paris I noticed lots of street art.

Quite a mix of styles, colour and designs.
