Audrey Hepburn said that "Simple girls are the prettiest". That's true. The real beauty stays in simplicity: always the essential. Elegance is the way.

Beautiful images. Oh to be walking through that stone archway, with my hair up in a perfect chignon, about to play a little Chopin on the ivories - a perfect life...sigh! xx

Is there anything more beautiful than a clean chignon? The hairstyle I want on my wedding day (someday...)

The only thing I miss with my new short haircut..........but I may comfort myself with that rose-plated Michael Kors watch that I went over and peeked at.......which would totally make it your fault. XO
