Cut & Paste

by Stylist Elly in


Snip it, stick it, break it, re-make it.  From album art to street art, adverts to animation, collages have been the go to medium for artists and illustrators the world over. Compromising over 250 images from more than 40 contemporary collage artists, Richard Brereton’s Cut & Paste catalogues the surreal reasons why the collage is just so cool.

Weather change wednesday

I just feel like winter is closing in on us and I am thrilled for the change of season, to wear layers again and make vegetable soups. Here is a list of my seasonal resolutions.

1. Move house. It's been on the cards for a long time and now it needs to happen, can't wait to decorate again.

2. Have dinners and lunches and brunches at Bi-nevi, relaunched with an incredible plant-based kitchen they have the most incredible  seasonal menu, don't miss out on the corn salad and the zucchini pasta. I have a 3 week mini detox in mind and this is ideal place when your tired of making your own food!

3. Wear more make up. Protecting my face from the sun this summer I am left with no colour. Pink lips add such a perfect shock of drama and health to your face, if nothing else add lipstick.

At the start of each new season I like to collect my favorite images so I can edit my wardrobe, focus on a fall style and purchase the items that will work with everything. I am going for a pale grey and blush pallet this fall. Also in the mix some hair ideas but I might just stick with wild long and blonde... again. Like with new beauty products I have a belief that if it's not broken don't fix it.

This week, let's entertain. Food styling and attention to the lighting makes everything much more grand and sumptuous. For drinks first serve champagne cocktails with ice blocks infused with berries or mint. Next, create easy and elegant first course summer dishes such as fresh salads served on your silver ware, crystal and Hermes plates. Then for the best and simplest main course order pizza from The Upper Crust. You can't beat it for style, lightness and taste perfection. It's all in the way you present it that matters.

Ok let's shop the new season this week.... while your size is still there. I want the opposite of my summer suitcases filled with light white dresses. Now I am ready for opulent rich fall colours and butter soft leather matched with dark lace and barely there silks. Complete with bare legs and a blanket throw over and your done.
