{notes from the weekend & a few lovely links}

by roséline

{hope you're having a beautiful weekend & a few lovely links}

. . . and after a wildly productive week at the office, this weekend was more anticipated than most, if that is possible -- for we adore weekends here -- but after answering a record number of interview questions for three upcoming features, and work, work, work the rest of the time, as well as finding time to begin a few new projects and to revisit old ones, it was time for charming cafés and too many macarons, a day at the countryside, roses and rain and the poetry of summer once and again . . .

{p.s.} do stop by on monday for some fun news

Had first met New York-based jewelry designer, Brandy Pham, online, through instagram, and since then, have been lucky to receive not one, but two beautiful parcels in the post, tied in wide lengths of pink satin ribbon and accompanied by lovely handwritten notes.

Brandy sketches and designs all of her pieces in her Lower East Side living room turned studio, turning drawings into swirls of gold, colored enamel, and crystal-embellishments that are simple yet utterly charming . . .

So.  It has finally come to this, and despite knowing for months now -- like a good procrastinator, have been using google reader right up until this very moment, and will most likely continue to do so, until it is gone forever, on Monday [!] -- a little due to a resistance to change, but mostly due to the fact that had actually quite loved google reader . . .

. . . there were usb keys and memory cards all over the desk, and in an attempt to organise, time drifted away into hundreds [thousands?] of photos upon photos, some recent, others filled with nostalgia, and in the midst were four folders from two separate trips, two of p's and two mine, of paris -- a happy discovery, for certain, but until they are sorted, a few shots of someone else's paris, shot by iphone . . .

{at the office : casual chic and pretty neutrals}

. . . it's a rainy, overcast day, perfect for burning orange blossom candles at the office, and, given my penchant for greys lately, fell for this casual chic look from vogue españa . . .

{at the office : a glimpse inside the elegant world of carolina herrera}

There used to be a time when the first thing checked every morning was email, but now, even before coffee, it's instagram, and lately have been in love with the glimpses behind the scenes at Lover, Sarina Suriano, the chic snaps of Hamish Bowles' fiftieth birthday celebrations, and of course, Carolina Herrera's beautiful office.  It's strange, am normally for more soft, romantic and muted tones, and yet, can not stop staring at the now-iconic striped sofa and the black & white framed photographs . . .

{décor inspiration : classic elegance}

. . . yesterday was an intense, work-filled day, but wildly successful, with two major projects finally completed, and while there are a few more pressing things before the week is through, it is so very lovely to be crossing things off to-do lists again, for there are trips to plan, and it's summertime, summertime . . .

What began with rather structured military high-waisted ensembles -- burgundy leather boots and casual pants (a new addition to the Valentino range) in monotone shades of bisque, navy blue and powder pink -- left us all startled with the slow metamorphosis into impossibly romantic all-lace pieces in bright jade and chartreuse, followed by a sea of intricate floor-length pastel floral tulle embroidered dresses that encompassed the invigorating summer feeling everyone seems to be enjoying now that the warmest season has arrived . . .

{hope you're having a beautiful weekend & a few lovely links}

. . . and it was a dinner reservations and fresh lobster ravioli kind of weekend, fuchsia roses and walks in the rain; it was city drives along the cobblestone streets and sunday brunch and too many cups of coffee; down time and music and falling in love all over again . . .

hope you're having a romantic weekend & that it's beautiful where you are, —roséline xo

{events | in vogue : hamish bowles' fiftieth birthday party}

Vogue published a few wonderfully moody snaps this weekend, of Hamish Bowles' fiftieth birthday celebrations, and between the striped dinner tents in a clearing in the woods, the feathers and sequins and a giant "H" made of cream puffs, it was an extravagant Gatsby-esque affair . . .

A hazy Friday morning that promises to be sunny and warm later in the afternoon, on this, the day of summer solstice; two cups of coffee and interview questions, [the same from weeks ago], the completion of which are being prevented by perfectionist tendencies.  There are roses on the desk and the hands on the clock are moving, flying, music plays in the background [a thousand stars hanging in the cold ♪] and for distraction, an article on Miuccia Prada, along with this print campaign, from all the way back to 2001, shot by Cedric Buchet, that would begin a pattern of using younger, lesser known photographers . . .

{at home | summer garden party : of orchids & urns}

. . . have just discovered that it is actually thursday, and not wednesday, as had previously thought [all day], which means running even more behind this week, but it is the longest day of the year tomorrow, meaning a little more time to get caught up, but also the first official day of summer, which also means celebrations and garden parties . . .

It was stunning outside earlier, and so, the office was a wool tartan blanket and a macbook for a bit, a few pieces of sea salt chocolate and late-june sunshine through the rustling leaves, and a flip through the zimmermann resort collection, all chignons and french dots, sheer tops and tartan, gilded skirts and ruffles . . .
