I was struck by this image from the recent Elle magazine.
I do like the dress, love the colour, texture and the bohemian chic vibe here.
The dress looks very forgiving with all the seaming and I would be happy wearing this to a wedding, tea, or dinner out.
It would be a versatile classic that would fit well into my wardrobe.
Look closely at the
muted tones, beading and dramatic textural features that combine to make this jacket exceptional.
The Chanel quilted classic bag.
Interesting that the model is sitting on a distressed bentwood chair in a pile of sand.
Does the earthy elevate the couture or visa versa?

Baby new potatoes, carrots, parsnips, chicken and homemade stuffing.
The stuffing involves the Cuisinart food processor
pulse day old bread, onions, celery salt, pepper, and sage.
Add 1/4-1/2 c. melted butter, blend.
Stuff chicken and close securely with skewers.
Bake stuffed chicken at 350 degrees in shallow roasting pan which has been coated with a glug of olive oil,
cut an onion in half and toss in pan.
Bake 30 minutes and then remove and add veggies and drizzle with a little oil, pop back in oven and bake for another hour...or until done.
(Check on a meat thermometer if in doubt, we don't mess with poultry EVER!.)
Put chicken on the carving board and tent with foil for 10 minutes to rest before carving.
Place vegetables in an ovenproof dish and keep warm in oven.
Deglaze roasting pan with flour mixed with water and some bouillon.
My fave is Better than Bouillon

Whisk until smooth and cook for 10 minutes....

Serve all together and savour.
