Janet Hill Giveaway



I am so happy to introduce The Co.'s first giveaway from the lovely and talented, Janet Hill. And better yet, it's a twofer! You may remember me blogging about how much I loved these prints here. Because it was one of my most popular posts, I am thrilled to announce this giveaway.

The first, titled "Shoe Shop" & the second, titled "Francine And Her Frenchie" are both fine art giclee prints of original Janet Hill oil paintings, on heavyweight matte velvet fine art paper. Each print is 11" x 13.5" with a small white border for framing. So lovely. Two winners will be chosen on June 15th & each person will win one print (JH watermark will not appear on the print). If you'd prefer to win one print over the other, let me know when you comment. This giveaway is international.

Friday, I'm in love


With Lindsay Lohan's latest endeavor. A 90-second video, directed by painter Richard Phillips set to form part of "Commercial Break". This is Phillips' first foray into video as a medium. He said: "In some ways the video relates to my art, but it is also a way to think about a new kind of portraiture." 

Reviews are mixed but I think it is beautiful & arresting. Love.

Thoughts?

Kate meets Michelle in Reiss


Kate met the First Lady, Michelle Obama in a stunning fitted dress by Reiss - the  Shola Bandage Dress in camel to be exact.  Remarkable. Seems she will be staying true to high street (the dress retails for only 175 pounds), and I love her for that. Could've sworn it was Victoria Beckham when I first saw it. Oh how wrong I was! The link above is to the online listing for the dress, but I haven't been able to get on it all day (the website is no doubt crumbling under the weight of all the women now trying to get the dress) so good luck to you! If you're lucky enough to be in London, the store does have them in stock so, if you can, hurry over! xx Christina

The beauty of the handwritten note


One of my favorite things to do is sit down & write handwritten notes to my friends & family. I am not an email girl, snail mail all the way!

Flashback: Anúna by Tami & Lubica


This Anúna collaboration between singer Tami Chynn and Slovakian designer Lubica made me swoon. Loved this line when it came out last year around this time, still love it now. The two have since collaborated on Belle, the female counterpart to Base Kingston, which also doubles as a more casual line.

Oh and love Tami's red hair.
