Tiger print in the garden, taken a couple of weeks ago on a much calmer Spring day. I have had this
shirt for many years but have only worn it a handful of times. This got me thinking as to why, it fits , is my
colours and works with so much I already own.Then the penny dropped, I purchased this shirt for something rather special, my daughter’s Make-A-Wish trip to Melbourne for a shopping spree and a trip to the Melbourne Zoo. I have some wonderful memories of that time be they tinged with sadness.
I am glad I have kept this shirt and now know I am ready to wear it again.Special pieces of clothing have
always evoked strong memories , I guess this is why I tend to hold onto them.
My tiger print shirt with its pink edges on the sleeves is by Lisa Ho , my black Moyuru skirt and Paco
Herero slides .
On a much lighter note , I offer some Spring inspiration (for us in the Southern Hemisphere) , some shots
of window displays I took in Paris at the end of April. The bags and those too good to be true sunnies were
at a vintage store in The Palais Royale.
I really loved both the skirt and the white top with the large bows making up the sleeve detail .
These graphic design purses really caught my attention and another pair of extravagant sunnies.Eagle eyed
readers may spot the photographer too.
Now don’t we all lounge in our claw foot bath in a pretty blue silk dress or does it only happen at Lanvin.
Yellow happens to be one of my favourite colours , so it was no wonder at all that this sunny outfit
by (I think ) Moschino caught my attention.
Last but by no means least is this little black number , by Givenchy if my memory serves me correctly ,
with its soft pussy bow and pink rose and fabulous shoulder detail. The screens behind were also rather
spectacular, the pink echoing the bow and the little beret. I would wear this in a heartbeat, a girl can dream.
