Give your shoes some lovin'

This is a friendly reminder to prepare your shoes for winter. Resole and check the heels if they need changing.

Emma Elwin shares one of her clothing care tip for traveling.

Blouse, Old touche. T-shirt, Filippa K. Trousers, Stella McCartney. Linen water, Washologi. Bag, Pop vintage. Knitted sweater, Gant Rugger. Trousers, Marget Howell. Shoes, Celiné. 

This is part two of the art of packing. My next tip is quite simple. If you are traveling and don’t have a washing machine at hand. Simply try to air your cloths after using them. If you have a scented spray to re-fresh clothing spray the garment after it has been aired.


Feeling blue

Emma Elwin's wardrobe is mostly blue and... Blue.

The other day when I was packing down my wardrobe and I realized something. The majority of my clothes has gone from black to blue. Everything in my wardrobe is pretty much a shade of blue, without me really realizing it. I found this when I googled the color:

Blue is sharply refracted by the eyes. This causes the lens to flatten and to push the blue image back. We perceive that blue areas are receding and smaller.
