I think I made you up inside my head

Camille Rowe for L'eau de Chloé Fragrance
I've been wanting this perfume for a really long time now - well actually I've wanted  Chloé Eau De Parfum for ages, but after seeing this campaign and advertorial, I think it looks lovely. The scent is also very pleasant , apparently it "has a fizzy champagne-like quality, with the peppery sharpness of bergamot and leafy notes playing up that of rose petals." 
Maybe for Christmas? Fingers crossed.

Inspiration: Leith Clark

I'd love to introduce you to one of my favourite people in the world/girl crush (along with Zooey Deschanel, Emma Watson, Kirsten Dunst and others). Her name is Leith Clark and she is the Canadian editor of the loveliest British magazine in the world, Lula. She's also a brilliant stylist, and some of the people she styles and is also friends with are Keira Knightley, Kirsten Dunst and Alexa Chung.

“There needs to be some magic, and you need to be able to create things the way you want to, not because you've learned how you’re supposed to do it.”   
There you have it, one of the loveliest and sweetest people in the entire world. I love the way she dresses, it's really simple yet quirky and whimsical. It'd be my lifelong dream to have tea with her.

To write love on her arms

“Once Upon a Time”
Karen Elson by Yelena Yemchuk for Lula's fall-winter issue 2009

I am absolutely charmed by the fragility and translucency of these photos. The naivety and magic of the photos just enchant me. Don't you think Karen looks a little (just a little) like Florence Welch here? Especially in photos two and three?
