    Gorgeous! Too much fabric for the curvy, but brings a lushness to other body types. I love the colors and the shoes. Bloomsbury Group – here I come!

      Thanks ! No wonder the Bloomsbury Group is such a huge influence for Christopher Bailey who totally modernizes its fabulous colors and patterns ! XO

      A little secret : I was hoping that you’d like this post because few people love literature as much as you do, so a huge thank you from me ! XO

      Thank you ! Oh, I love the idea of the supercharismatic Cara as an elegant nomad : in this marvelous bag, she could carry her own life (last weekend, I’ve watched an interview with Cara, who showed what was in her bag : there were soooo many things, even a tiny “Karl Lagerfeld” puppet !). ❤
