Bazaar Bizaare

The yummy little number on which Tinsley Mortimer has her elbow propped in this month's Bazaar is Clarence House's Noveau Bizaare. Issued a couple of years ago, I originally saw it in the New York Times Style section. Memo, please!


It's still in my "house" bag. I wanted to use it just as Mrs. Mortimer has done, with one other something, here a damask, of similar scale. And the tassel fringe. Are you paying attention? If you aren't familiar with passementarie, now is the time to learn.

Is the grommet hilarious? It's to deter cheaters like me from skirting the two yard minimum, ordering the memo and whipping up a pillow at virtually no cost. At 400 + retail, it's probably wise.

It is so beautiful. Really reminds me of you too.

I say whip up that pillow, grommets and all!

I loathe the grommet!! I want to turn every swatch into a pillow, if I could, and put my mother and her sewing skills to the test (if she wants)!

does tinsley look like she's botoxed to within an inch of her life?

Meg - I'm shocked! That is so not like you. And, yes, she does, but I don't think I noticed so closely on the heels of the Oscars. Oh, and the carpool line is amazingly slick and still as well.

"Slick and still"--how perfect!

I have been drooling over this photo spread from Bazaar and am glad to know any little detail. This home is more formal than my usual tastes reflect, but I love the colors and patterns chosen.
