Fleur Wood at my Local Beach

I have long been an admirer of fashion designer Fleur Wood. I love going into her store in the Strand Arcade, Sydney, just so I can step into the dressing rooms which are cleverly concealed behind these glass display cases:


And I love the placement of these mirrors and ballerina prints in her Chatswood Chase store:


I even own this dress, although it doesn't look like this on me, unfortunately:


So I was thrilled to learn that Fleur has a book out, appropriately titled  Food Fashion Friends:


Yesterday my copy arrived, and is full of beautifully styled events such as this Hot House Tea party. Aren't the pastel peacock chairs gorgeous?


And I can't wait to cook this rhubarb meringue cake. The recipes are all included:


Here is the Citrus Tea, Lemon Cake with Earl Grey Icing and Coconut Ice:


This image is from a beautifully styled dinner with a shell theme, including sea urchin shells threaded with fairy lights:

A gorgeous Southern Highlands picnic:

And here is a modelling shoot at Hyams Beach, which is my closest beach:


I always knew Hyams was stunning, due to it having "the whitest sand in the world", and the shots in the book have really captured its beauty.
