Mind Your Mankins....

Jen Mankins is the owner of the Bird boutiques, some of the best fashion destinations in Brooklyn and New York.  It has won mumerous awards and sells collections like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Acne, A.P.C, Alexander Wang, Isabel Marant and Proenza Schouler to name a few!

How could Jen be anything BUT stylishly shod head to toe, day to day? Below are some shots of her and some of her home - to die for!

I'd smile too if I looked this great in a fur vest and plaid scarf.

Only a little bit envious of her Proenza Schouler bag... 

Fur, graphic prints, embellishment and geek chic...All clashing wonderfully. 

Just casually standing in her magnificent home!

Love this antique gold colour picked up with a teal and burnt orange scarf. 

Leopards print in the best possible way.

Bright pops of jewel colours.

Khaki, denim, leopard, clogs and printed silk - beautiful!

A Family Fashion Affair...

Given our penchant for all things nails and manicures, it is an appropriate time to introduce our latest style crush, Prisca Courtin-Clarins the beauty heiress introducing Parisians to the American Nail Salon.  Prisca however, is only one quarter of this blogpost.  

Her sister and cousins Virginie, Claire and Jenna are a mini fash pack, a supertight quartet whose wardrobes we're pining after.  Uber tall, uber slim and uuuuber French these girls are a permanent fixture on front rows and party syndicates and we're loving every second. 

Jenna, Virginie, Claire and Prisca Courtin-Clarins. 

Neutrals with a pop of red, even standing they look glorious.

Look at their smooth forheads... Gosh we'd love that lifetime of Clarins!

Sport Luxe, tailored chic, flowing neutrals and jewel brights - all trends together and looking fab. 

Those legs!

Must. Have. That. Jacket. Now. 

En Pointe...

We're having a disgusting love affair with Stiletto Nails...We can't get enough especially in metallic shades (in Chanel Peridot please!).

Our favourites are seriously hot repeat offenders Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rhianna and Fergie. 

Wouldn't say no to Beyonces wedding ring either....

Some of our favourite past and present Chanel metallics....
