Hello-Hello, happy Wednesday!
Today we are more-than-a-little crazed and dazed from our day job at the Princess, all of the goings-on are lovely, but also time consuming!
So we jump in with a few things from around the globe, beginning with a look at J. Crew in the Times (of London).
“It is a label selling well-designed, fashionable — although never slavishly so — clothes for men and women. “
We always enjoy seeing other perspectives on American brands, and the Times story doesn’t disappoint; the piece was prompted by news that Crew is going to be available internationally beginning in May, via Net-a-Porter. More from the story:
“Even though it shares an unfortunate belief with a number of Americans that adopting initials adds a lustrous patina of heritage to a name, J.Crew is not in the same room as KFC…”

Next, an item from the fabulous Australian-based Girl with a Satchel blog, a look at the April fashion magazines. We thought readers might enjoy this portion referencing Tatler:
“Tatler does traditional preppy like no other magazine, as demonstrated by “Sports Day”. Shot by Ruven Afanador at a male boarding school, the styling is all straw boaters by Lock & Co, white tennis dresses tennis dresses by Bottega Venetta and Jil Sander and wool cardigans from the Polo Ralph Lauren Wimbledon Collection.”
We are going to look for the issue next time we’re visiting our local newsstand.
In today’s Collaboration Update (yes, we gave up and added a category for this sort of thing) we share news that Liberty and Manolo Blahnik are pairing up for a collection.
Women’s Wear Daily reports the collection is slated for September:
“So Blahnik will design a range of items — such as scarves, candles, shoehorns, Wellington boots and notebooks — using Liberty prints.”
The designer has also created a Liberty print of his own.
We have an addition to our inexplicable and sporadic coverage of those Gossip Girls kids landing magazine covers.
Above we see Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, Taylor Momsen and Ed Westwick featured on the April cover of Australian pop-culture magazine Cream. Penn Badgley, Jessica Szohr and Chace Crawford are included in the photo spread.
For one of today’s Pretty in Pink (and Green) we offer this fun find, the Dinosaur and Heart Crust Cutters. to take the crust off bread, creating something really appetizing for your little ones.
These were pointed out to us by the bright minds over at one of our faves, the Pink & Green Scene.
We also offer a little something that looks simply cute as can be, the Spring Romance Mini Potted Fabric Plants.
We found these on etsy from seller Jane Joss, aka the “Fabric Florist.”
Until next time, we hope there is pink and green goodness in your life!
