A present from Milano Airport duty free. There are perks to others business trips.


I can feel my mother turning in her sleep due to all the 70's posts. She takes every possible opportunity to inform me how 'in bad taste' her youth was, apart from punk (she takes great pride in regaling me with the story of seeing the cover of NME in the 80's and soon after sticking safety pins in her ears). Yes polyester and Vesta meals it may have been Mummy, but it was also about awesome Californian tan lines and Farrah Fawcett's hair! Anyway it's time to hit the tanning booths in your bikini!

I'm a big Linda Ronstadt fan and posted about her last year here. Hoop earrings and no shoes are the way forward. No shoes are the new shoes.

...with this track. Overheard it the other day while struggling with a catsuit in American Apparel's fitting rooms.

I Youtubed it at 11.03 this morning and have been playing it ever since. It is now 13:56. Have now increased volume dramatically to drown out the dull thud of downstairs hitting their ceiling with a mop.

This is as close as I'm getting to the neon trend this summer, or ever for that matter.

...of separation.

- Checking Tom Stubbs Style&Error blog, fashion editor for Finch's Quarterly Review amongst other countless talents
- Browsing Finch's Quarterly Review
- Video post by Stubbs about Christos Tolera's style
- Browsing Christos Tolera's website, find a painting by Tolera titled "Sometimes is Snows in April"
- reminds me of the old school garage track by Amar also called 'Sometimes it Snows in April'

It's little things like that, that make me so happy.

The links are all there so click'em.

Off to watch TOWIE.

I need to invest in some 'hater-blockers'.

Is the great British mythical summer upon us? I can't quite tell but while the sun is out, so are our white bits. The FOX short by Orlebar Brown £105. I don't think there is a woman alive who has a cellulite percentage low enough to wear these. However I'm sure some will try. I do love them though.

My favourite colours being the Olive and Fuchsia. Each offering a parallel universe of of different outfit combinations yet are quintessentially the same garment.

I want to be a cart horse, clip clop, clip clop, clip clop.

All shoes from mind you it's a Scandinavian website so unless you speak danish, dutch swedish or german it might as well all be in latin. I'm still trying to work out where my 'basket' is. Good luck!
