Easter Pinks

Anna Sui dress; Tocca coat; M&S tights; Nicole Farhi shoes; Scapa bag; Swarovski earrings; vintage bracelet; Essie ‘Splash of Grenadine’ nail polish.

I’ve had a lovely Easter Sunday and am currently curled up in a chair, rendered immoveable by the vast quantity of food and chocolate I’ve managed to consume. The Easter Bunny certainly stopped by my flat this morning; besides lots of delicious chocolate, there was a small package containing the gorgeous vintage pearl and imitation sapphire bracelet I’m wearing in these photos. I have quite small wrists and have a very hard time finding bracelets that fit. My Mum in fact got this one made specially to fit me so it is already a cherished possession.

I enjoyed Easter lunch out with my Mum at my favourite pub in Hampstead, The Old White Bear.

It was quite the feast: roast chicken followed by orange cheesecake for me.

After lunch, we thought a stroll around Hampstead would aid our digestion so set off for Fenton House, a small National Trust property with beautiful grounds, boasting an orchard and rose garden. I volunteered at the house last summer so have got to know it pretty well and still love to pay it a visit.

I had in fact planned quite a different outfit for today (a primrose yellow satin dress without sleeves), but it was so cold and dark when I woke up this morning that I had to rethink my choice. Anna Sui is one of my very favourite designers, and a couple of dresses I have of hers are very rare non-sale purchases of mine. I love this dress with the mix of velvet and silk and beautiful buttons.

The coat, however, was a sale bargain purchased about 10 years ago. I think it still looks brand new and pulled it out of my wardrobe again when excitedly I noticed that one of my  TV heroines – Rory Gilmore – wears the exact same coat in later series of the Gilmore Girls.

Hmm, and now I have to decide whether I’m going to be lazy and watch an episode of a new favourite tv series or be good and workout. As there is still plenty of chocolate to get through, I’d better do something active!

  1. I really love your shoes, I have a big love for Farhi, a new found love actually since over a year ago.

    How exciting to volunteer at Fenton House, I have so many places to visit in Hampstead I should spend a day there. x

    • I love Farhi too, especially for shoes in fact. A day in Hampstead sounds a lovely plan! Perhaps you could visit one weekend and I could show you around some of the sights 🙂

      • Oh, I would love that Miranda. Perhaps we can arrange something when the weather perks up again. x

  2. Happy Easter!
    Your bracelet is very beautiful, I have the same small wrist problem.
    Alexis Bledel lives quite near me I’ve seen her a few times but I’ve never watched Gilmore Girls!

    • Thank you! Happy Easter to you too. From your twitter feed it looks like you enjoyed some lovely Easter treats 😉 I’d recommend Gilmore Girls – especially the first 3 series.

    • We did enjoy ourselves 🙂 Hope you had a lovely Easter too. Hehe, yes, I was rather pleased to see Rory and I share the same taste 😉
