Jord: Stunning Wood Watches

Jord is a swedish word which means earth, soil and land and looking at the watches they make, i can see where they are coming from. They make their watched from natural wood and love partnering with bloggers to spread the word about being green and helping manufacturers and consumers to reduce the harm to our environment.

Jord creates beautiful and wearable wooden watches. I was lucky enough to try the Fieldcrest Maple watch and i have to say, i don’t think i’ll ever love a watch as much as i love this one. It’s lightweight, durable and the pale colour of the wood will go with pretty much any outfit. I’ve received so many compliments on this watch and i’ve only worn it once!

The design is absolutely stunning. The clasp hides away behind the wooden strap and there is a carving on the back of the watch face with the Jord logo and where it was made. Simple and elegant. They measured it to my wrist and i can not fault their service. MyMy

It came beautifully presented and packaged in a wooden box with the logo crafted into it. I slid the top of the box off to reveal this little beauty sitting on a cushion – the height of sophistication.

Alexander McQueen: The new Women’s Wear by Sarah Burton

mcqueen-high

Alexander McQueen, a name everybody should know. One of the most amazing fashion designers in the world. One of the things i love about him is that he was male. Proving you don’t have to be female to understand women’s fashion.

Anyone who saw his fashion shows were in for a treat. McQueens runway shows were filled with the unusual whether it be a hologram of Kate Moss or a life sized human chess game. It’s safe to say that watching Alexander McQueens runway shows would be a dream. I wonder what he would have done next – McQueen was always pushing the boundaries with his runway ideas.

As detailed in the illustration above kindly provided to me by the lovely people at www.farfetch.com you can see he was a brilliant designer, a very talented individual and he created pieces women longed to wear. His pieces were so detailed and elegant and if i could afford it, i would swan around in the biggest, fanciest dress. Who wouldn’t?

Well, lucky for me, Sarah Burton – McQueens successor – has designed the new range of women’s wear on www.Farfetch.com and it’s fabulous! Have a look here!

There is everything a girl could want from jewellery to scarfs to coats i could drool over all day. I need to make my millions now so i can buy everything!

I LOVE birds… This is perfection in a cardigan:

This is the coat i had in mind for this winter – i bought a grey wrap over coat from Next. Can’t help but think i was channelling my inner McQueen!

I am completely in love with this:
