Oh, it's been so long. On top of the day job, another fun obsession lured me away from posting in the last year. But here I am again to showcase a brooch gifted by a dear friend. Wearing such an item can lead one dangerously near grannydom; the rest of one's outfit must, must, must be kicky to counteract the frump. If you have any inherited specimens lying around, have a look over at The Glamourai for a great tip on How to Wear Brooches Better.

Escada desleeved

Couldn't hack the power shoulders (but loved the 80s plaid) on this thrifted Escada blazer, so lopped them off and had a tailor clean up the loose ends for a warm wool vest!

DIY Missoni

See this lovely cushion on the bed?
 I made it and its twin out of a thrifted skirt and filling. 
But don't tell, I'm pretending they're designer.

Black and Green

This color mix has been following me around lately. First, in a serape given to me for my birthday, and then as one of English painter Howard Hodgkin's favorite combinations (read about in Bruce Chatwin's "What Am I Doing Here"). I find it quite toxic...

Summer is Here

and it is sweltering. Can't believe I was in down jacket, scarf, gloves and boots last weekend, but there you go.
