Hello everyone , hope all is well in your part of the world . As the blog title eludes this post is really just a mix of whatever is taking my fancy at present.
At the top of my list is playing in my closet and creating outfits . I am working on challenging myself to leave my comfort zone and experiment more with the items I already own.
Starting as I mean to continue with adding colour , in this case an orange and white spot vintage Christian Lacroix cotton blouse with huge puff sleeves , big collar and gold buttons. Frankly the blouse is a tad too small ( one day it may meet) so I added a wide white belt and viola a jacket. I wore the blouse over a white tank top and paired it with wide M. Dainty blue grey pants and white sling back shoes.
I added a head wrap (using a blue cotton scarf), cream sunnies, big earrings and multiple strands of long beads. Accessories always a way to ring the changes in my book and they are fun to collect and don’t break the bank.
I am soon to walk down a new path in life , so we will see where that will lead and I am open to new challenges and beginnings.
Enjoying the delights of Summer produce , the lemons from our garden , the heirloom tomatoes , eggplant , capsicum and courgettes from the local farmers market. The green cabbage leaf Portuguese china plate was a Christmas gift from John , the blue and white china , another of my loves has graced the dresser for over 40 years.
Summer has been rather hot and dry this year and the garden is not looking its best but this rose , The Children’s Rose is thriving. It is so pretty with a lovely perfume .
I have been spending time in here re-reading many of my collection of fashion books . I have just finished the autobiography of the late Andre Leon Talley , a sometimes sad but interesting read on the fashion and magazine industry. I am now reading Grace (Grace Coddington) , former model and fashion director of Vogue.
Raffy in all his cuteness was a must to be included. He is such a little character and brings so much joy in our lives. One of his funny little traits is to welcome us home with a present , it may be a shoe, a piece of paper , in fact anything he can find.
