{mostly london + a little new york}

. . . ending London Fashion Week with softly falling metallic confetti, Burberry Prorsum's reinvention of the trench coat in shades of camel and nude was luxurious, short, and draped loveliness . . .

. . . and for a last look at New York, more draping at Reem Acra, mixed with soft, floaty silks and satins and handfuls of princess jewels . . .

Burberry's new line is fabulous, indeed! Love the colors, the textures the draping.... A dream come true. (but terribly expensive probably!)

Wowza on the Burberry Prorsum. My favorite black leather bag (with tiny studs on a satchel) is Prorsum and I love it!

But must say that the Burberry models are way too skinny. The legs look a bit scary.

LOVE the burberry of course, but there's a special place for reem in my heart--I wore her at my wedding and never felt more beautiful! her modern take on goddess folds is unparalleled...
