swirls pullover



sometimes, where colour is concerned, i am all matchy, matchy. other times, not so much. at those times, shapes dominate. i could care less about colour and i end up mixing at least two. but, somehow, the colours mix well. at least for me.

i am wearing the alpen top, the delphi scarf, the honolulu dress and the amazing skirt by kaliyana. my pullover is by grizas. i am wearing the mondrian shoe (closed collection) by trippen.

suggestive footwear and accessories


the bindings on the boots and the black flower: nothing on their own, but, put together, made me think: a bit of naughty.

fond of round specs pullover


a couple of weeks ago, i went shopping for new glasses. i don't need new glasses, but it has been some time since i updated my glasses wardrobe. i found two contenders. both perfectly round specs, one pair small and one pair large, the frames clear plastic. because i couldn't decide between the two*, i decided to proscrastinate instead, meaning to wait until either i could decide between the two or i could afford both.

*i am very (very) fond of round specs of all sorts and am in possession of several pairs (frameless, (one pair vintage, one pair "new"), medium sized black plastic frames, medium sized grey horn frames (vintage these), medium sized walnut faux horn frames and large (think Harry Potter) walnut faux horn frames). i want all the round specs i can get my hands on! hmmm. sounds a lot like me and dotty clothing.

i am wearing the notting hill top and the cool pant by kaliyana. my pullover is by grizas.  i am wearing the mondrian shoe (closed collection) by trippen.

living life on the edge footwear


i wanted to comment about trippen's sport collection, by comparing it to trippen's box collection. after several attempts, this was the best that i could come up with: there are similarities between the soles of the two collections, but one (the box collection) is edgier than the other. of course, given that i am talking about trippen here, a less edgy sole still makes for a pretty amazing collection. and, oh so comfortable! i could live in these boots ... literally!

i am wearing the notting hill top, the ono dress, the best vest and the amazing skirt by kaliyana. my boots are the tourist boot (sport collection) by trippen.

on (my) trend cardi


the dark days have arrived. i mean this literally. where i live, daylight savings time ended on november 1, meaning that, now (and for the next few months) by the time most of us 9-to-5ers finish work and are free to play, our playground is dark. i like it! surprise!

i am wearing the alpen top, the l/s anemone dress, the milan skirt, the delphi scarf and the (woollen) square jacket by kaliyana. my boots are the pluto boot (closed collection) by trippen.

making new of old jacket


sometimes i think i am on to a secret. and i wonder if i should share it. or not. for, is it mine to share? to make things clear, i am not talking about a secret that someone entrusts me with with the express understanding that i will not share it with anyone. those secrets i won't share. unless and until i have permission to share. no, i am talking about a secret that is an out in the open activity that no one is drawing attention to but might be worth having attention drawn to it. i find it interesting that a label may test-drive some designs with a select market (and in limited numbers) before making it more widely available. but this activity is not a secret. or, if it is, it is the worst kept secret.

i am wearing the l/s anemone dress, the milan skirt and the left back jacket by kaliyana. my boots are the pluto boot (closed collection) by trippen.
