Spencer, Gladys Goose, Best Of 2021 & Laurie Ellen
Clockwise from Top.
It stars Kristen Stewart as Princess Di, who gets A LOT of screen time and is quite excellent.
Spencer takes place over Christmas at Sandringham, and we thought it would be a like a holiday themed episode of The Crown. It turns out it was really like The Shining meets The Crown, with some really excruciating scenes revolving around a pearl necklace provided by Mouawad.
Because Stewart is a global brand ambassador for Chanel, the iconic french maison provided nearly all the costumes for the princess. LOTS of great looks, including these sunglasses Stewart wears in her Porsche, this yellow double breasted kit with a pirate hat, and this Ontario Provincial Police hat.
Somehow I ended up reading Alan Heller’s obituary last week, and noticed this intriguing photo:
It’s unclear who owns the trademark to Gladys Goose at this point. Someone - maybe us? - should buy it and start making these again. If the secondary market is any indication, there is still some interest in these!
We’re behind on our Best of 2021 readings! These year end compilations are always a great checklist for things to read, watch and listen to during the holidays.
We are noted Harry & David fans over here, which may or may not be in style again. But we found a worthy successor - Laurie Ellen, who used to bake for the iconic Tartine in San Francisco. Ellen uses beautiful looking packaging, unlike most of her competitors in the holiday foodie gift basket space.
Her Holiday 2021 collection is completely sold out, but we’re looking forward to her spring restock.
Raquel & Chris
