Floating my Boat
An eclectic mixture of things that have been leaving a smile on my face this Autumn. The last in my three-part exploration.
The Little Velvet Dress (or in my case, the floor-length velvet evening gown too)
Hats! Hats! And more HATS! The stranger, the better.
Landing a speaking part in a Local production of 'The Three Musketeers' during next Summer for four and a half weeks across July and August.
Brooches > Whether Fantasy buttons and strings, semi-precious stones or diamonds, this is the perfect way to accessorise. More to come on this Subject.
Knee-length, sophisticated tutu skirts. In elegant black or whimsical lilac.
This Lanvin Fall 2011 advert. I find it so absolutely charming.
Green = Emerald Green, Olive Green, Chartreuse... Green and Brown. Chocolate and Mint.
Sous le ciel de Paris (Juliette Greco)
Un ano de Amor (Luz Casal)
Parlami d'amore Mariù (Tino Rossi)
Que sera sera (Doris Day) > As well as all of the simply breathtaking dresses she wears.
Knee-high boots. In any colour. In any style.... but
(on second thoughts, I am for freedom of expression. Do whatever you wish to do) on display. Tuck trousers in.
Colourful, impractical and whimsical Scarves - wrapped around your neck, waist, head, leg (but if it's an Hermes, only around your neck). Heck! Experiment to the max.
Ladylike Fashion. Strings of pearls, modest necklines and skirtlines, neat hairstyles and gorgeous gloves. Flattering to so many people and, worn on teenagers, rank with a certain sophisticated irony.
Central Heating > You only realise how much you depend on it when it isn't there anymore, the day you wake up with a frozen nose and blue toes.
Mika's outfit in his Kick-ass video. *Love* Both of them! Somehow, on the way up from the street, he manages to change his outfit and clean his face. Oh,
and Mika's new album in February! *Die*
BBC iPlayer, allowing late night comedy programmes to be available at all hours, and all through lazy Sunday Mornings.
Daydreams. Helping you to realise that whatever happens in life, whatever goes wrong, you will always have something to trust and believe in - imagination.
Spain > Upcoming Spanish Exchange.
Mary Katrantzou. The clothes just keep getting better.
