i smell trouble...


as i was sitting on the tube this morning i spotted someone reading the stylist - this free fashion lifestyle magazine that is given out on tuesdays on the underground in london. as i was eying up the carriage to see if i could find an abandoned one the girl flipped it over and i saw this nina ricci perfume advertisement on the back. is it just me or are people kind of over perfume? the last perfume i bought was the marc jacobs daisy one... and that was literally two years ago. i really am not a perfume girl. it really bugs me when someone walks by and you can smell them after they've walked away, gotten in a taxi, and driven miles away. yeeuck. i think someone's scent should be personal - the sort of thing you can only snatch a whiff of if your lucky enough to get close to them. everyone in the room doesn't need to smell your scent, just a select few. am i alone on this? anyway, all this to say - i've never smelt this perfume and i've got no idea if its rank or divine. but immediately when i saw it i thought of a little someone i know....

this is my sister's daughter grace. she is seriously one stylish and adorable little monster. often my sister will post photos of her dressed up in ridiculous outfits - and i can't help but think that actually she is totally nailing some major trends. so, here she is, in all her four year old birthday glory sporting a pair of ears identical to the pair worn in the newest nina ricci advertisement. how stinking cute is she?
