“Shelter”, a story photographed by Carter Smith and styled by Kate Phelan was about Autumn 1997 best coats that protected the exquisite and gorgeous Shalom Harlow from the elements, but frankly, it was the first picture that spoke to me – the beauty of it, regardless of my love for the model or my seasonal obsession with the garment of the editorial choice. And then there was the second shot, the sotto voce conversation between the model and a delicate flower (or a lady bug), and the mix of tweed and sequins that I happen to adore.

And last, but not least… There was a feeling of calmness in all this… Which was perfect for the announcement.

I am taking a break and leaving the blogosphere for a whole week. Unlike any other little blog holidays I’ve taken over the last two years, this time I am not going to be blogging at all, nor will I be visiting any blogs for I want to spend time with my family and autumn while it’s still there, glowing, inviting and calm.

I am off to recharge my batteries, enjoy long walks, late mornings, movie nights and a few delicious treats made as we crave them…

I do have a long list of stories to share including the fashion week that I decided to postpone as the posts required some finishing touches before being revealed… A lot is yet to come and that is why I need to take my time and and find energy to keep going upon return.
