Don't you just love finding new style inspiration? I was dead chuffed this week when one of my pals (someone I have actually met and empathized with in the real world) sent me a photo of Costanza Pascolato via Twitter. Having moaned about the tyranny of technology in my last post, I'd like to celebrate its benefits today. Oh the joy of online research - all you need to know, just a click away. Well, almost. So thanks to t'internet, I've now found another fashion VIP. The wonderful 72-year-old, Italian-born contributor to Vogue Brazil. A front row regular, who styles H.Stern's campaigns and has worked with the jeweller for over 20 years:

Scott Schuman says, 'She has an incredible way of maintaining a consistent personal style, while updating her look each season.'

To me, this fashion-conscious freelancer has obviously spent time curating a wardrobe of simple, elegant, well-cut pieces from top-notch designers over the decades. And can accessorize like a demon. Rarely spotted without her trademark sunglasses, coiffed hair and stunning jewellery, Costanza Pascolato has confidence and timeless style by the Louis Vuitton (monogrammed) bucket bag load.

And talking of technology, I'll be adding her to my new Pinterest 'Grown-up Style Icons' storyboard immediately. How dangerous is this online scrapbook? Blimey, it's like virtual crack. After vowing to stay un-Pinterested for the last few months, I am now well and truly hooked. So you can guess what I'll be doing this weekend. Perhaps, ahem, you'd like to follow me...
Oh and there was a really good feature on 'growing up gracefully' by Lisa Armstrong in the Telegraph this week. You can read it here.
