Desperately Seeking Pattie – Introducing Lady Cartelli


Written By: Lady Cartelli

She is a new animal, a shock genetic mutation, and she has appeared everywhere, like a new model of a car, or an epidemic, or the flowers in Spring.

-Anthony Haden-Guest, The Birds of Britain, 1967

My most prized possession is a British, coffee table book that showcases the most phenomenal women of the London social scene in the sixties. Iconic powerhouses, women like Marianne Faithfull, Dusty Springfield, Mary Quant, Alice Ormsby-Gore, and Jane Asher (to name a few) were unique, talented, beautiful and free thinking.

Wearing Ossie Clark dresses and fraternizing with musicians like the Rolling Stones and the Beatles, these women helped shape a decade that has majorly influenced the world we live in today. After all, it was Pattie Boyd, wife of George Harrison, who got the Beatles interested in the  Maharishi, and where would music be today without the White Album as we know it? Pattie’s use of competing bold prints and over accessorizing is just as captivating today as it was in 1967.  The rebirth of bohemian style makes Pattie Boyd the perfect style muse for the coming festival season.

Stylewatch Feature – Lupita Nyong’o


   Hi All! I wanted to start a style-watch post every month where I will be featuring someone in entertainment and/or a fellow blogger that is killing it on the red carpet or online, on their blog. The first person I chose is Yale graduate, Lupita Nyong’o. ‘Well spoken, educated, graceful and classy’ are a few words that the media is using to describe a woman that is changing the face of what America perceives as beautiful.

Born in Mexico City, Mexico and raised in Kenya and now living in Brooklyn she has been spotted out and about everywhere. She is up for an Oscar for her portrayal of Patsy in Steve McQueen’s ’12 Years of Slave’ but in case you missed any of her recent dresses/outfits please take a look, she has been on Harpers Bazaar’s Derek Blasberg’s Best Dressed List since Autumn 2013 for a damn good reason.

Enjoy! -Kel
