Recollection

Check out the stunning necklace and earrings from Baiastice at The Liaison Collaborative. These are truly statement pieces and you only have a couple of days left to grab them at the event before it closes on March 30.

A few days ago I promised a closer look at the latest fedora from JfL Hats, and here it is. The texture of the suede just makes me want to run my fingers across it, then smooth it back down. This is, once again, the bright pink, but all of the hats in this release are lighter colours than the usual JfL pallete. They are perfect for the ladies, but will still work great for the guys. Do go check them out – they are new releases at the main store.

As I was scrolling through my JfL Hats folder to find this photo, I realised that I have been blogging for John for almost four years. He is the designer I have blogged for the longest. He has believed in me – stuck with me – as I have slowly become a bit better at blogging. OK, I can say easily that I have become a better photographer during that time. I don’t actually have the first photo I blogged for JfL – those images were stored on a back up hard drive that sadly failed – but the images I have go back to October of 2013. And I know I was blogging for JfL Hats for a few months before that. Looking through those images, I smiled, I cringed and laughed out loud at my efforts.

All in all, it was a lovely recollection.

Ivanka

1 Ivanka sm

This is going to be a very quick post to let you know about the Ivanka gown at Apple May Designs for Lazy Sunday. Normally this is a one-day sale, but Apple has the dress out now through Sunday. If you have ever shopped Lazy Sunday, you know that means 75L!

The dress comes in a variety of colours. Feeling rather virtuous today, I chose the Pearl (white).

Hey…no laughing! I can feel virtuous sometimes, ya know 😉

The necklace and earrings are from Cae at Wayward Winter, which runs through January 30. The necklace is actually a double necklace – I’m just showing the upper part. I love this option – it makes accessorising so simple.

You have your list now. Go forth and buy pretty stuff!

Sail Away, Sail Away

1 Paper Boat

Sail away, sail away.

My boat may be made of paper, but I am setting off into the mist, ready to face whatever crosses my path. No anchor, no life vest – just me and the open sea. No storm is too fierce, no gale is too strong to keep me from sailing wherever the winds take me. Across the seven seas or into a secluded lagoon, I will be a valiant sailor.

Come along with me, as we sail away, sail away.

This photo was inspired by Johnfrancis Laville’s latest release. I have more than one sailor hat in my inventory, but none as perfect as this. You can find it at the JfL Hats mainstore.
