Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

My Favourite All-Time Designer

Issey Miyake...

...hands down...

...utterly, amazingly, beautifully-constructed clothes...

I am fortunate enough to own two of his pieces.
I have owned them for twenty years.
I will have them and wear them until the day I die


  1. Hi Jacqueline

    Magnificent and they are keepers.
    I know you must always feel and look wonderful when wearing

    Happy New Year

    Helen xx

  2. I feel that way about the Albert Nipon label ... it was actually his wife Pearl who designed those incredible fashions. I bought one in the early 80s ... sadly I wore it out!

    Lovely photo .... Happy New Year.

  3. I've not heard of your man Miyake(surprised?), but he looks to be one of the world's current posse of sculptor-designers. Fabulous.

  4. J that's a really lovely picture of you. Are you with your daughter? She's very pretty too. Turquoise suits you

  5. Lovely,how wonderful to own a "piece" of specialness of course with all these things you have to be able to wear them lol I can just see me in one...not!..just not got the shape or height but admire them very much,like some others I have not heard of him so will have to have a moment of Google.Have a wonderful new year.

  6. What a wonderful dress!
    It's perfect.

    Happy New Year!
