Mode: Katie Ermilio

Of all the recent fall collections, anxiously anticipated none more then Katie Ermilio - - & after viewing the exquisite smattering of sparkles & the voluminous fishtail gowns am entranced! Since the inception of Katie's label & her first collection, Spring 2010, have been an avid fan & follower...

Each season I wait with bated breath to see the magic of her new collection-- & every season am utterly delighted with what she has produced. . .

 
 
 


As the granddaughter of Grace Kelly's personal clothier, it is as if Katie were destined for this role. . .

If all else fails. . .


If your St. Valentine's Day plans fail to fall into place, if you could not find the perfect gift or prepare the perfect breakfast in bed. . . A love letter will fix it all. . .  Write what you feel & tell your special someone all the things you adore about them. . .

A truly unforgettable St. Valentine's gift. . .


One of the most common (& delicious) St. Valentine's gifts is the box of chocolates. . . But when Sweetapolita decided to 'think outside the box' for her St. Valentine's Day chocolates, the result was a custom assortment of rich, mini cakes-- decorated to perfection so that no one would know their delectable little secret until first biting into one. . .  



All you need is love. . .

Sugary sweet









Sugary sweet, full of pastel delights-- after the magic of Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2012 runway show {featuring a BEYOND wonderful carousel} the campaign did not disappoint. . .

Porcelain skin & glittering headbands, broderie anglaise & soft petal embellishments; delectably sweet handbags & so much sweet feminine charm-- adore the return of ladylike dressing. . . Thank you, Mr Jacobs.

Romantic gestures




St. Valentine's day calls for BIG gestures of love. . . Not necessarily an expensive gift-- but an act of romance, to show the one you love & adore just how much you do love & adore them... With a few days left before this terribly romantic day, why not plan a hopelessly romantic 'event' for someone special in your life. . . 


.: I d e a s :.
A room filled with pink & red balloons with a 'love note' attached to each
A candlelit bathroom, with a bathtub filled with bath elixir & rose petals
Pack a picnic lunch filled with their favourite foods & wrap each with a 'love note'
Litter your house or room with 'love notes' telling them just what you love about them
A romantic breakfast in bed-- heart shaped pancakes & fresh berries & of course freshly brewed coffee
