the blossoming of kelsey genna


Bergonia House, isn't it just beautiful?
I remember vaguely discovering Kelsey Genna's enchanting designs on a Spring-like day and wanting so badly to dance around like a crazy ballerina in the embellished tulle skirt. I discovered it again for the second time on Daydream Lily and I am in love all over again with the embellished tulle, flowery perspective and general beauty. Begonia House, her first collection was launched in March 2011 and all the gorgeous and exclusive clothes are up for sale in her precious boutique. My personal favorite outfit? Actually, I wouldn't mind having her entire store in my wardrobe, thank you.


Well, I haven't been a very consistent blogger lately and I'm sorry for that. I've been pretty busy lately. On Saturday I went on a desperately needed shopping trip and bought some essentials. I'm very pleased to say that I now have an adorable pair of cream wedges with crochet detailing. To tell you the truth though, I feel a bit like Lizzie McGuire in such platformed shoes. That was back in the day when you could get away with mixing leopard print and floral and platformed sandles were worn with calf length trousers. That makes me giggle!

I also went to see Monte Carlo yesterday. It was enjoyable and gave a morsel of hope to the girl who dreams of visiting the City of Love (or, lights?), finding love while there (with a Prince no doubt) and wearing Bvalgari jewels. All in one trip. The ideal girly film with a feel-good ending and predictable plot. Who can resist that?
Happy Monday xoxo
P.s: Above and at left is Kelsey Genna's second collection, This Old World. My favorite dress is the middle one. Simple and of course, floral. Just how I like things!
p.s: don't forget to vote for me on Style Nation, my entry is called Silk and sheer!

Oh wow I had never heard of her before! I'm looking at her collection now and even though I'm not a floral girl I'm tempted!

Have I heard of I Dream of Jeannie??? I was OBSESSED with that show growing up and watched it EVERY afternoon after school (mum and dad had cable - we got ALL the old shows - I think love of vintage fashion stems from that somehow - and the constant playing of Queen and Frank Sinatra on the stereo in our house!) xx

This makes me want to have some more spring time before fall!!!

YES!! And Hawaii Five-O; Get Smart; and The Saint (when Roger More was still young and good looking!!) Its been literally 10 years since I've seen them - but I used to laugh at all the times they were at the base and the Major thought they were nuts - and needed a psychiatrist!

I didn't get to finish that movie but I would love to go to Monaco or Paris. I already have my prince charming though. Something's gotta give.
