|© Patrick Demarchelier; DIOR COUTURE, Rizzoli New York, 2011|
In the midst of a very busy week, which included a spring breakfast in honor of Aesop’s Sage & Zinc Facial Hydrating Cream with Sunscreen (the brands first facial moisturizer with SPF), heart palpitations from an intense project and a few wonderful invitations to Paris Fashion Week shows, it escaped me that my blog turned one. Seeing the honor of your presence requested, at Paris Fashion Week would make any girl ecstatic. At the urging of a handful of people who knew I was writing; I began blogging publicly on March 1, 2011, a challenge for someone who is fiercely private. I never dreamt that this blog would become what it has and I cannot thank you enough.
Thank you for the continued support. I’m so fortunate to have a place to share my passions. When I started blogging, I never thought I would be turning down advertisers (I like my independence), entertaining collaboration ideas, giving designers feedback or most importantly, that there would be this- intimate place to share ideas. I’m grateful for every reader, comment, email, and tweet of encouragement. I look forward to another year of inspiring conversations.
Since this blog is about the subtleties and little things that I love, it’s only fitting that we celebrate tuning one with a giveaway. As a small token of my appreciation, I’m giving away a copy of Dior Couture to one lucky reader. As you all know, I enjoy peeking into designers’ ateliers and working out how things are constructed. I consider a studio visit the utmost luxury. I’m very inspired by silhouettes and who does silhouettes or femininity in a more compelling way than Dior? I hope that Patrick Demarchelier’s gorgeous photographs sweep someone away…
