stolen roses

Here, you can take a look at my new dress. You can also take a look at what must be the messiest dressing table on the planet. I'm quite a messy person, there is always stuff lying everywhere in my room - clothes piling up, magazine cutouts and other paperwork everywhere, and there's a carpet made out of books next to my bed.
Anyway - I still have loads of things I would like to show you guys, like the Paris pictures, but that'll come in time. Now, I would just like to show you my new shoes:
Brown leather brogues from Manfield, and so comfortable I can't believe I never invested in a pair of these before. And that's my desk I'm standing on, another fine example of my messiness.

Oh, and something else - I am completely obsessed with Karen Elson's new album! She is, as you may know, a model and also Jack White's wife, and utterly stunning:

But that's not the most important - she makes such great music! You'll have to have a certain love (or tolerance) for folk to like it, but as I have loved folk music all my life, I adore her! I've been listening to her album over and over again. Just listen to Stolen Roses or The Ghost Who Walks (oh, and she looks so great in the second video!)

  2. I didn't realise she was 1) married to Jack White and 2) now a singer - will have to check out her album. Your shoes are so preppy I love them and that desk is not untidy I assure you! I like to call it 'controlled clutter' xx

  3. Yes, those shoes are lovely! I too am a "messy" person...no time to clean-up and too many creative projects going on to care. So we should just celebrate our creative/messy lives. Very cute blog, I will be visiting again!

  10. You don't even know the meaning of messiness until you have seen my room! When you look up "messy" in the dictionary it comes up with "Savannah Burton's room" and there is a picture of my room. I found a old tunafish sandwhich in my room under all my clothes yesterdsay.. hem hem. gross.

  20. You look so pretty in this picture. Like one of the Lisbon sisters. I have a pair of brogues like this too and they are so so comfy. I can walk in them for miles and miles.
