It's uncanny, actually: I SWEAR to you, when I started going in this direction with David Koma's line from last September last night, I hadn't yet seen Christopher Kane's rainbow designs - which I've then adapted to what I was already doing. Sorry if that doesn't make sense: the tennis is on...

My third and last (for now) in a series on one of my style icons, my friend Natayla. She's so petite, and her style reminds me of a kind of 21st century Audrey Hepburn. She's got that elfin pixie quality, and a real zest for life. And more importantly: she really doesn't give a toss about...

SnappyLifeStyle - and I were moving through the crowds of Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, at a pretty, well, snappy pace, on our way to Snap some Pics at the Mall, the day before the Royal Wedding. I'm not sure who spotted Loli first, sitting on the wall, smoking and smoldering. But we both...

I simply cannot stop thinking about the dinner party last week at Aqua Kyoto in the old Dickens and Jones building. I keep trying to tell Mr. Dot about it and he's like, Jill, you told me already. 'But I didn't tell you about the pork bellies.' 'You told me about the pork bellies.' But they...

Woke this morning and got this sense - I can't prove it, mind you, it's just a feeling - that Kate and Will woke as man and wife, probably not nearly as hungover as the hoards of masses celebrating, looked at each other and said 'well that went well, let's go swimming.' Or at least, that's...

Not just the person, the oh so Coco (who I keep picturing as Audrey Tautou: it's making me want to see the film again). The brand. As a concept. The clothes. The colours of the nail varnish, for goodness sake! Even the taste and texture of those little crab canapes.. or the beautiful jackets...

And I always say Audrey Hepburn, and Jackie Kennedy (in no particular order) but I've realised, that often my strongest influences are my friends. So I started going back thru my archives: I don't shoot Nat every time we meet (that day last week, for example, I didn't have my camera with...

Memorable, magic night. There is a lovely tradition that has cropped up, to devote our Friday posts to Japan. Last night and today I've felt immersed in the Japanese culture, even dreaming of Japan. Doing this, in my heart, for you, but check out Kate's post today, which compiles creative...

Third but not last: one of the sweet young writers selected for something I believe called the Beacon project. I forget her name but we chatted for a while when I met her with one of the others - who I shall include shortly, in my 'boy's festival style' post, coming soon. Interesting how...

Dot: and from a great distance, at that. Probably somewhere in the Carribean.. not sure). Weird coincidence, tho: just as I found the photo, I also found in my inbox, an invite from my lovely friends Lucy (Snippets of Shiny Thoughts) and Carrie (WishWishWish) - they're doing a wonderful Uni...
