I bought these shorts for $5 a few years ago.
They didn't fit me then....however I've grown (outwards) and now they do....

The Male Image





An assortment of waistcoats from Nineteenth Century Fashion In Detail, by Lucy Johnston.

My favourite is the red peacock feathers....

TuTu




My mother is trying to convince me to get a season pass to the ballet...I like the ballet, but I don't know if I could handle a whole season...too many important things to do, like looking at blogs and...ah...


These tutu's remind me of this...

OCD




For the past few days I have been obsessively making octahedrons out of this pretty pretty lace printed paper...for no particular reason...

My fetish may have emerged after I saw these Chanel images...

New.Skirt.



I'm in love with the fabric of my new skirt...it reminds me of some of the astronomy images you see on the NASA site.

Possible first outing: Races....however I think I may have left it too late to get a guest pass. Idiot.

This Won't Hurt A Bit






I've had these Terry Richardson badges for a few years now...and although I'm not a badge-wearer....I can't bring myself to throw them out.... they just hang around on various shelves getting dusty...

The only thing I can think of doing, is strategically placing them on Terry's editorial in Purple Fashion....quite amusing actually...entertained me for a good fifteen minutes...

Body Architect



By Lucy McRae....

When I first saw this I thought it was done in photoshop....but it's NOT!

These are actual push-pins stuck on her body....the way they catch the light and follow the contour of the body so precisely ....

There is no other word for it but........AMAZING!!!

however I will tell you some suggestions that the thesauras came up with...

awesome
fascinating
incredible
marvelous
prodigious
shocking
stunning
surprising
unbelievable
wonderful

.....so maybe there are a few words that describe it.....

Divorce Yourself



A favourite photoshoot/concept from a few years ago...before I retired as a model due to old age....

"they only want you when you're seventeen, when you're twenty one you're no fun"

We are starting to be inundated with the S/S 2010 collections, which is always entertaining, but here is another kind of collection.....

Introducing.....

I'm dieing, as well as going bananas, over this image Luxirare scanned from a YSL book.

I definitely need a turban....

I LOVE VELVET

Follow my blog with bloglovin



A rediscovered burgandy velvet blazer...bought it last summer but I have never worn it for some bizarre reason...I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable......

Worn with a favourite necklace (from grandma's jewellery box) and nothing...as you do....but this jacket is actually quite warm. Oh and matching burgandy lips and nails of course (coordination is in...you heard it here first).

Sculpture X Jewellery



'Hoddle' (From the sculpture "Batman Swanston and Hoddle” by Alison Weaver and Paul Quinn) is wearing my ceramic flower necklace, by Make Believe bought from Fat.

He looks ever so dashing.

These necklaces also come in a larger size, which are rather spectacular, but I didn't want peoples attention to be focused on my jewellery in liu of myself....Obviously.

Oh Dear



For some peculiar reason, I am always drawn to see-through clothes....but don't fret...I'm seeking help to get over this serious addiction.

However, unlike Jane Birkin, I usually wear something underneath...so maybe it's not such a problem?

BowTie



Have been wearing this bowtie in my hair non-stop since I got it about a week ago.

So pretty
So girly
So gossip girl
So good it makes me feel a little bit sick...

Something Different





Chanel Paper Couture, Spring 2009
Luciano Fileti's behind the scenes coverage.

I've made paper clothes twice in my life......once when I was about 7....and 20 minutes ago after I saw these pictures on StyleBubble.

fun fun fun. I recommend it.

Marry Me?



I received this Peter Alexander mug for my birthday.
Apparently when the giver saw it they immediately thought of me.
I'm hoping this is because they know that I like large, gold costume jewellery, as opposed to them thinking I am desperate to be married....

Either way I LOVE it.

YUMYUM.




Had lunch at my new favourite cafe today. So good.

I had the 'Lunchbox' (1st pic) which includes...
a rice mix thing, chicken roll, sesame dipping things in a cute paper cup and a pistachio cupcake. (I know, I'm great at remebering the actual names of things)
This comes in a box if you get takeaway. Genius!

2nd pic is a burger........obviously. yummy.

...but forget the food...it's the detail in the presentation that makes me like this place.
