{top five tuesday + a chance to win}

{"Through the Looking Glass" photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue US December 2004; model: Natalia Vodianova; via style.com}

This week's {top five} is all about ruffles, since they're fun and flirty, and that's the kind of mood I'm in . . .

Also, s
till crazy about Balineum's ruffled Catherine shower curtain, and this week, there's a chance to win one.

Good news is, the UK-based company ships anywhere in the world, so anyone anywhere can enter: just leave a comment below, and a winner will be randomly selected by the curtain's designer, Sarah Watson, and announced here on Friday, June 13, 2008.

bonne chance! / good luck!

{top five:}
1. this shower curtain
2. this tablecloth
3. this girl at Cannes
4. this photoshoot

That shower curtain is brilliant... the epitome of romance- crisp clean lines juxtaposed with the free-form & flowing ruffles.

It reminds me of Victorian pantaloons. <3

We are in the process of getting our shower ready after a mere year of using only a bath. Funny, when we were looking to buy I said, "I just rooly rooly rooly want a bath, that's what I want" and now I'm realising that there's such a thing as being careful what you wish for! How magnificent will it be when we finally get to enjoy a shower again?! We're doing a black and white subway tile-style bathroom (it's a 1930s era house) and this curtain would just look *divine*. So, consider that I have just electronically batted my eyelashes at you.
