Last weekend my lovely friend Fareed cooked me lunch and showed me around his neighbourhood, which just so happens to encompass Kew Gardens. I’d been before, years ago as a young pensions reporter on a freebie press do at a summer concert, but I’d never had the chance to explore it.

During the week Auriol and I went to Oxford to see Love is Enough: William Morris & Andy Warhol at Oxford Modern Art. I highly recommend a visit – three rooms of apparently rarely seen works, linked by both artists’ print making businesses and their collaborations with their peers.

This was a great show with a broad selection of line drawings, textiles, prints, books and magazines. Well worth a look.

I just found out about Loup from Calivintage this morning and it’s all so pretty! If you’re sad that you’re not Jane Birkin, go and look at the sweet little Paris-inspired dresses, all made in New York. I love this one but I’ve promised to not by myself anything new for months – 2015 needs to be the year of austerity.

But oh –
