I've always been a fan of Garth Cook's aesthetic, but it's been a long time since I've been left in awe. As to how I'm going to fit everything "I just love" and "have to have" into my meagre wardrobe space... dilemmas abound.

And I was abuzz with the new outfit possibilities and Espresso Martinis.
