. . . august has always been a bittersweet month with thoughts of summer's fading days lingering in the air, a light and breezy linen dress one afternoon, a cozy camel-coloured cardigan the next, and with each night that falls, the knowledge that soon the days will become shorter and the nights . . . they will be brushed in shades of sable and onyx and scattered with candlelight and bits of gold . . .

{p.s.} more leopard print

don't be sad about summer: think cashmere, candles, books and open fires...

I'm such a fan of your blog! You not only, somehow, find images of glamour that we have floating in our mind somewhere (along with our own personal soundtrack!) and put them out there for us to view, but you also accompany them with words that reflect our feelings. Blog Bravo!

I absolutely love what Tricia Rose said. There is good in every season, and you kind always find some warmth in the beauty of the colder months.

So so beautifully put together, Roséline. I love the strength and elegance of this look. Very feminine for certain, but a little masculine thrown in for good measure. As I am planning my Fall wardrobe, this is really helping me along...

wishing you a fabulous day, my friend,

xoxo

Lovely post.. I share your sentiments on the ending of summer. Though I also enjoy autumn, with cozy warm sweaters. Still, I have no idea where summer went this year, it is just passing by all too quickly.
hugs,
SeaGal

Beautiful! It makes me think of the interior of a Louis Vuitton store, which I think is so beautifully, simply, and richly decorated.

I saw Miu Miu.
I came here.
I want the coat.

I realize those three statements are not entirely interrelated, but it is exactly as it flowed through my brain as it happened.

That coat is beautiful.

xoxo,
Carrie

The coat and the model in the first photo are absolutely gorgeous. I love how something that is so the opposite of subtle (a leopard print coat) can look so beautifully delicate when photographed properly. Gorgeous!
Love, A
