Homespun Charm

What with the GFC, Credit Crunch, whatever you want to call it in full swing, it seems everyone's paying homage to all that is homespun: Missoni's opulent and oversized knits, Marni's shabby-chic brooches, Zagliani's lace-detailed totes and most recently spied, Christian Louboutin for Ohne Titel's raffia rope sandals.

So in keeping with with this of-the-moment mood, I'm taking inspiration from Alice + Olivia's sequin-embellished cardigan and Miu Miu's sequin and bead-embellished socks and will be taking a visit to dear old John Lewis in the attempt of updating my tired cashmere knits into something more whimsical and wonderful.

I'll keep you posted.
