  1. These are all so, so wonderfully fun and lovely! I adore them all, but think that the pale blue one with the darker blue and white bow knit into the design is my very favourite.

  4. I'd like to clarify something. The blue suit that you have labeled as being by Schiaparelli, is not actually by her. On my site (where you got the photo) I clearly say that the suit was inspired by Schiaparelli.

    Now this photo is all over Pinterest, saying that it is by Schiaparelli. Could you please make this correction here so this misinformation will not be spread all around the net? Thanks, Lizzie
