Recipe from her blog:

"As I mention above, I had about 3 cups of braised kale, I will share the recipe but it might be too much for this recipe, use what you need and keep the rest. 

Ingredients: 

1 bunch of kale, steam discarded 

and leaves coarsely chopped

4 tomatoes, diced 

1 small red onion, finely sliced 

2 garlic cloves

2 cups vegetable or chicken broth

4 tbsp olive oil

salt and pepper

Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onions and cook for 4 minutes then add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes more. Add the tomatoes, stir well and cook for 5 minutes. Add the kale, stir well and cook for 5 minutes more. Finally add the vegetable stock, salt and pepper. Cover and cook for 30 minutes. Check once in a while to see if it has enough liquid. 

For the final dish:

½ pound spicy Italian sausage (or sweet), casing removed.

3 cups of braised kale

Parmigiano, Grana Padano orPecorino Romano for serving

Place the sausage in a pan and cook until browned (break the sausage down to small pieces with a spoon). Once ready, add the kale and let it cook for 2 minutes then toss in the pasta, serve immediately."

Sense & Eccentricity, WILDFOX Fall 2014

Hey Everyone! I'm back from Miami swim week and couldn't be more excited to post our FALL 14 campaign!!! This was so crazy to shoot out in the freezing snow and right after a storm. I am so excited for fall to come again this year, cozy nights playing board games and drinking hot chocolate...

This collection is very much inspired by Jane Austen and my English heritage. I loved growing up in West Sussex, even today I love to be in a place where you can really feel the seasons change. Jane Austen wrote love stories around seasons, she was one of the first young women to become famous for her beautiful, romantic novels about coming of age and trying to find your place in the world. She is one of the most widely read writers in English literature.

In my eyes Jane was the ultimate Wildfox girl; Hard working, poetic, confidant and extremely comical... and  it makes me sad she couldn't be alive today so I could have her over for dinner and a sleep over with all the girls.

Her stories are inspiring and still so relevant, they teach us about ourselves, our friendships, family, priorities and sacrifice. Growing up with an older sister I really looked up to her, she was my ultimate inspiration,  my eccentric, funny, drinking, laughing, hard working, incredibly cool role model. She gave me so many of the building blocks to become confidant and independent, to make comedy even in the hardest of times. She lives in England, in Brighton, a city by the sea, and I rarely get to see her so It's a bittersweet relationship that I think about often.

Siblings, whether they are blood or self made, are such an important part of growing up, of who you are and who you become.

Thus this collection is a dedication to the women who love us most, hate us most, forgive us most, to the women who make us laugh and cry, who give us that reality dose straight to the face, who keep us in line but also teach us to miss-behave... this collection is for them, for our sisters and for the ultimate sister,

                                                Jane Austen.

Daisy's Girls, Wildfox Fall 2013

I'm so proud to release our Great Gatsby inspired photoshoot, I really hope you love it as much as I do!! Please leave your comments, I love to read them. XO


Kim

  The girls have been at Jay’s since February and have no intention of leaving soon. The decadently beautiful house overlooks the Hamptons coast, and when there aren’t any raging parties going on in the backyard, they make their own. The fun never stops; night after night of champagne-fueled dancing, skinny dipping, dressing up, and loud jazz blasting from the radio.    They slip into beautiful sparkling dresses and wrap themselves in colorful, billowing coats.  They write love stories and act them out while dancing across the large banquet table. When the sun comes up, they sit on the balcony to watch; beautiful and barefooted, with make up smudged from the night before while sharing gigantic, silk blankets. Breakfast consists of endless stacks of pancakes and more champagne in the company of balloons and barreling laughter.  So you see, the party just carries on and on. One day they will have to say goodbye to this life and pursue their dreams, but for now they are young and they have each other.  They understand that friendship and love is truly all they need...that and lots of strawberry ice cream.

-Love, Kimberley Gordon

Designer Kimberley Gordon describes, “It's amazing how we are approaching the 20's again, but for our generation! I was really inspired by this decade for the first time in my life. Generally, I'd found the subject a bit dull, but after re-reading The Great Gatsby I realized it really felt so Wildfox! Parties all the time, driving into town, spending money, falling in love, big mansions and gardens, the ocean, brewing your own alcohol, best friends and broken hearts...it's just so amazingly fun. It was all sparkle, true love, dancing, and champagne!” She adds, “So many quotes from Gatsby feel extremely Wildfox and this one inspired the 4 characters in for the collection: ‘In his blue gardens men and girls came and went like moths among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.’”

Fall treat, Campfire tarts

From Cooking Classy

Campfire Tarts
Yields 10 cups

1 package refrigerated, small biscuits (I used Pillsburry Jr. Grands)
2 (21 oz) cans pie filling such as apple, blueberry, raspberry, cherry
canned whipped cream

Special equipment: Tarts On Fire Sticks

Directions:
Evenly wrap and mold 1 biscuit dough around the outside of the stainless steel cup of each Tarts On Fire Stick (no greasing necessary). Roast over an open flame, rotating frequently until golden brown (don't hold them over a smokey area or directly in the fire), about 1 - 2 minutes. Remove toasted biscuit from stainless steel cup (it should easily glide right off), fill with your favorite pie filling and top with whipped cream. Easy as that! Now devour =).

Wildfox White Label Fall 2012 intimates! Juliet Capulet, The Real World

This shoot was inspired by Juliet's bedroom if she had been alive in the 90s, lived in Verona and starred on The Real World. The intimates will be up for sale this month! So exciting, they are SO cute. I hope you enjoy these images, I wanted them to have a very raw, intimate feel. The beautiful Marianne Fonseca goes un-retouched for a dreamy, realistic vibe. My favorite is the black galazy star bra...

"Inspired by those dreamy, romantic nights in Juliet's lavish Italian bedroom, Wildfox presents a new collection of intimates. Spun of soft, 90's-inspired velvet, this new collection is laden with beautiful prints and soft textures. Decadent and a tiny bit daring, Wildfox Intimates are for the most poetic of girls -- the girls who lives for romance, who lay in bed collaging Polaroids of the ocean, who memorize constellations, scribble poetry across blank pages of homemade paper, love their cat more than anything, and hang curtains of pink lace. The ones who pair nose rings and Doc Martens with floral bras, swim naked, sleep on soft, white blankets in the living room, and dip strawberries in chocolate. This collection is for girls who only have whiskey in the freezer, milk and leftover cheesecake in the fridge, dream constantly, and love to gaze at the canals from their window in Venice. They bike everywhere, kiss strangers and waltz through the house to Frank Sinatra on vinyl.

    This is the girl who wears pajamas to a party, or a bra over her t-shirt -- the girl who loves dancing in her underwear, cooking in an apron and panties, and starting games of strip poker with her friends. You've met her before, maybe you've had sleepovers at her house. You've seen her clothes strewn all over the bathroom, admired dainty bras hanging from antique lampshades, you've laughed about boys as she sat in cloud print underwear and did her makeup in front of a beautiful vanity.

She's always in love; she is afraid of nothing. Maybe she's your closest friend... or maybe she's you."

Societte Perrier interview

Playfully inspired by the '90s flick Romeo and Juliet, Wildfox introduces their premiere intimates collection for Fall 2012. Spun of soft, '90s inspired velvet, this new collection features an array of vintage-inspired, nostalgic prints and graphics, including black cats, muted florals, fluffy white clouds and starry nights. Daring and decadent, each piece feels as though it was stolen from the nightstand in Juliet's boudoir.

"I remember in high school having a shrine of Leonardo DiCaprio pictures, daydreaming that I was Claire Danes in angel wings." says Emily Faulstich, one third of the design team. (The line is a collaboration between Kimberly Gordon, Leilani Shimoda and Faulstich.)

As teenagers we idolized the bright, poppy aesthetic and slightly punk edge to the movie, and loved the romantic story and poetry of it. Our intimates try and convey this romanticism and rebellion, as if they were made for Juliet Capulet to pack in her bags as she ran away to meet Romeo."

The designers' first ever intimates collection is comprised of decadent, floor-length velvet robes, cozy, over-sized sweatshirts, mesh-accented bodysuits and sexy bustier brief sets. According to Faulstich, the pieces are meant to be worn well and often — inside and outside of the bedroom.

"[The] intimates are meant to be styled with your everyday outfits in a way that can be seen (or hidden, your choice), but nothing is sheer, no underwire or garters, which we think makes it more comfortable and beautiful," Faulstich tells us.

 

The new intimates collection is a home run for the Wildfox designers. Every single piece is darling, romantic and decadent - a perfect match for the quintessential Wildfox Girl.
