Why Don’t You…


… have a yellow satin bed entirely quilted in butterflies. (Diana Vreeland)
Don't you think Diana Vreeland's "Why Don’t You" column for Harper's Bazaar was a true stroke of genius? Witty and funny, and with questions like "Why don't you… remember how delicious champagne cocktails are after tennis and golf?" I bet watching Wimbledon must have been fun with her, too.


I'm in Vreeland mood today and have been wondering - Why don’t you…
Take something shiny and something sheer...


& something natural coloured... & wear it all together?

I'm off to Berlin, checking out some fashion week activities…

I'll try to twitter away about my adventures in the Berlin fashion scene. (I bet Ms Vreeland would have been an enthusiastic twitterer.)

Love and Kisses!

Mmh and this mischievous self-questioning finally creates such a seductive "GLAM Equation", softly dazzling on this pastoral atmosphere . . .
ps: I am sure that Mrs Vreeland would have been such an unexpected / uber caustic twitterer !!!

à Bientôt, Antoine
