the stella citrus cake


The Stella McCartney spring citrus prints caught everyone's immagination this past Europe season with designs delicious enough to eat. 
Now you can - in the form of cake…!
an what a fashionable little cake, inspired by Stella McCartney's SS2011 collection.... I she's called Stella.

Here I found my pic of fleurs that go quite smashingly I think, with this delictable dessert.

You too can whip up this delightful tutti fruity cake, you'll find the recipe here.

    delicately blacked | out

    Have a look just what Harper's Bazaar Australia's own Christine Centenera
     can do in SS2011 Lover black floral lace gown and Bassike leather pants paired fittingly with Tom Ford pumps no less! Captured on the streets of Paris today during the couture collections. 
    I have always been a true "lover" of lace, I think secretly or maybe even subconsciously until now not just for its delicate beauty but to be covered in florals no matter the occasion.....

    Anja Rubik daring in an exquisite sheer black lace robe after Armarni Prive collections at Tocadero in Paris.... ah this super model never ceases to amaze

    tu me manques printemps

    This weekends sun-drenched winter weather in Sydney brought on the feeling of a spring / summer spent in the south of France, where garden roses bloomed up above my head and long days were spent along the sands of the coast.... Tu me manques la Côte d'Azur....
