Finlay & Co

Oh how I love stuff. Especially stuff of the ultra elegant, one-of-a-kind variety. So when I caught wind of Finlay & Co, a London based brand famed for creating the most beautiful, handmade wooden sunglasses I just had to take a closer look.

Amy Smilovi

In case there was anyone left in the English speaking world who still didn’t know, I’m off to New York for fashion week tomorrow!!! To say I’m looking forward to it would be a serious understatement. I am so ridiculously, over-the-top excited that I’m practically singing to myself as I write, resulting in some pretty strange looks from my fellow Starbucks goers. In a mere matter of days I’ll be gazing upon the latest collections from the likes of Alexander Wang, Jason Wu, Oscar de la Renta and of course, Tibi. I was lucky enough to see the Tibi catwalk show when I was in New York last September and can’t wait to see what Amy Smilovic offers up for SS13.
