The latest Vogue Living (May/June 2009) was waiting patiently on my doorstep when I arrived home yesterday. It is the Collector's Edition, guest edited by none other than Catherine Martin, Oscar winning design genius, so the magazine is pure visual beauty and inspiration, with a distinct French flavour.
But it is this picture that took my breath away and will sit on the wall of my office forever.
This image alone reminds me that style is timeless; to embrace my individuality; to pursue creativity in all its forms; to never underestimate the power of unique footwear(!); and that cycling is a very cool thing (especially when embarking on your journey out of a glorious pair of French doors).
