Monday Mix (Final Line-Up Of Frou Frou For 2012)

Ah, to own even a single item from this week’s Monday Mix.  Le sigh.  Le sigh of infinite bliss. (left to right, clockwise from top) Alexander McQueen Final Collection Angel Jacket from Shrimpton Couture, Hand-Dyed Silk, Tulle & Leather Poetic Aviator Dress from Lumme Designs, Anne Demeulemeester Black Wedge Ankle Boots, Shrimpton&Marketa Handmade Vintage French Fabric Clutch available here, Hammered Textured Copper Ram Cuff from Hammerhead Designs and Alexander McQueen Enameled Skull Bangle from Net-a-Porter. Love, SG p/s I’m the proud owner of four garments from the genius known as Tiina who’s the brains behind Lumme Designs. pp/s My next buy?  That cuff.  Oh yeah so don’t try sneaking it away from you.  I got mah eye on you.

Circling The Issue

My post titles are becoming increasingly corny.  Sigh. Nothing too avant garde nor adventurous here.  Just serviceable classic pieces given fresh twists with cut, colour and finish.  And the proverbial accessory.  All in the name of grocery shopping. A charming (dark brown) polka dotted button down shirt in the most delightful shade of Dusky Rose, quite likely my favourite shade of pink.  Worn with intense violet skinny jeans and supremely spiked ankle booties.  I have those in practically every shade.  Don’t tell the man. The sweetest of pachyderm arm candy. Do you like seeing spots? Love, SG

(Inter)Stellar Intentions

So that we’re clear, I had every stellar intention to post these pictures when they were taken which would be, ahem, two Sundays ago.  C’mon, it’s been a rollercoaster fortnight 🙂 anyways, I “did” take photos of a week’s worth of outfits and will be uploading them across the next few days.  Pinkie promise.  Ish. I was also determined to make this more than a fluff piece, you know, but I think that’s what we’re getting for today.  My train of thought has been derailed, if the wheels were ever set in motion in the first instance.  Oy. Now, we all know that the devil’s in the details and therefore, the procession of pieces put together for this post (quasi tongue twister) is comprised of ~ a Mace Brown Shrug thingy which is older than Eve.  Yes it is.  Purchased in Singapore circa 1996.  And I said Mace because it’s that time of the year and I rather fancy the scent of Mace. Over, no, under this brown sugarness is a glorious dress of galactic …

What A Girl Wants ~ 12 Party Dresses

So seeing how it’s the twelve day of the twelve month of the year twenty twelve, I’ll be uploading 12 posts across the next few days.  Yes yes, I really need to get my act together and be organised.  And I know I was supposed to post pictures of my interpretation of Monday Mix but that will come later in the week, pinkie swear. Here’s the first of a 12 part series. It features a dozen delightful dresses I covet, and range from playful to Lolita to Nikita wannabe.                                                                   (left to right) 1st row ~ Berserk Acid B&W with Red Dress, Christopher Kane Cracked Black Leather Dress, Colette by Colette Dinnigan Red Chiffon Lace Dress. 2nd row ~ Desigual Lacroix Printed Silk Dress, Notte by Marchesa Ivory Silk Crepe Dress with Metallic Gold Sequinned Shoulders, Peter Pilotto Che V Printed Stretch Silk …

Monday Mix

                                (left to right) Marni Bird Cashmere Sweater, McQueen Wing Leggings, Skaist-Taylor Peach Mongolian Lamb Cropped Jacket, Giuseppe Zanotti Swarovski Encrusted Spiked Wedge Booties, Jason Wu Embroidered Clutch, Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Bib Collar This, more or less, is the kind of outfit I would typically put together for a school run.  Yes, spikes and faux fur et all.  Maybe not the clutch since Eve makes me carry her lunch bag.  Tomorrow, I’ll post pictures of my interpretation of this look so let’s see what transpires, eh? Love, SG

Fee, Fi, Faux Fur

I love fairy tales ~ does it show? I’m still getting to know my Coral Painter Lite. (trying to) Strike A Pose Brown Faux Fur Shrug worn with a stunning Hi-Low Jersey Black Top which features brass skulls.  I paired these two exquisite garments with sleek Black Leggings and killer Nikita Boots. Brass Choker/Necklace with Fool’s Gold and Chains a-plenty. See those skulls??  LOVE LOVE LURVE. Vintage Ferragamo Bag. A gift from my man, this is one of my all time favourite bags – a vintage Ferragamo featuring gorgeous wild animals, leather and some hardware.  Just phenomenal. From the back. See how beautifully that Jersey top drapes?  And yes, I have red hair 😀 Seated. Trying to act all cool and nonchalant as only a 40 year old can. Femme Fatale Boots. Another (perfectly chosen) gift from the man ~ what can I say, he’s from Italy 🙂 And that’s all there is for now, there isn’t anymore. Love, SG
