Kirsten in Couture

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Dearest B,

Charlotte does look like the princess she is, but did you happen to see Kirsten Dunst’s Chanel Haute Couture dress that evening?  One of the most stylish women in pictures, she’s nailed it once again!

Talk soon,

Jenn

Dear Millie and Jenn,

How perfect is this?  Charlotte Casiraghi gets it so right in vintage Chanel.  Just had to share!

Talk soon,

The Greenbrier too

Dearest B,

I never cease to be amazed when I open a Belinda letter and out pours the most wonderful lessons in art, fashion, architecture, the list goes on and on.  Your recent note about The Greenbrier, West Virginia’s stunning 19th century estate turned resort, set my heart aflutter!  I simply must hear more about your event.  What were you and the crew doing in White Sulphur Springs?  Which rooms were you able to play in?  Do you have a favorite?  Most impressive chair?  Best gilded lamp?  I’d would just love to hear every detail.  I went photo hunting for inspiration myself and came across these . . . I do hope you enjoy them.

Can’t wait to hear about it,

Jennifer

Has a marriage of modernity and antiquity ever looked so inviting?

Dear Jenn,

Have you been to the Greenbrier?  We did a very interesting event there using so many of the rooms.  Wait until you see the photos!  The fabulous Dorothy Draper had no boundaries.  For our beige “spa like” sensibilities, well, our minds were simply blown.  So take a deep breath and look.  I know you will love it.

Love,

B
