How many textures can you fit into one outfit?
The more always the better

It is clear that my turban once on, does not come off. Not even for the photo booth.
The case of a girl having to stand for something or she falling for anything?
To be honest though, between just the two of us, after seeing this photo, serious headpiece envy was induced by that lilac rose head wreath (alternately seen on Phill of Taylor-Made and Alexxsia of Company.Peer into the camera obscura.
Katie Chutzpah for the title of this post and the inspiration behind the post. It was her response to my compliment on her beautiful jade Dior earrings as designed by John Galliano. It got me thinking about how what is deemed as ‘good’ can be relative to each person. It also got me musing on the idea that even when we think things are no longer as good as they used to be (in the case of these earrings, Katie’s opinion was Dior was perhaps better when helmed by Galliano) that sometimes the new ‘good’ perhaps is no less ‘good’. Perhaps it is just a new type of ‘good’. Peer into the camera obscura.
Image via KCD Instant on Tumblr. A few seasons ago I attended KCD’s digital press day. One of the labels I found myself intrigued by was Pedro Lourenço. The young Brazilian designer had explored lightness, geometry and texture. I was fascinated by his technical ability. The sheer dress I’m holding in the image was my favorite piece not only from the Lourenço collection but my favorite piece in the whole showroom that day. I think when it is executed right, the sheer, light and transparent can signify strength. There is strength in the vulnerable. Peer into the camera obscura.
At Kipling’s Fashion Night Out proceeding, I bumped into Anna. Well sorta. Like the inimitable fashion institution that she pays homage to, Anna the Teddy looked formidable in a belted trench coat, pearls and sunglasses.
She was kind enough to let me pose with her and I couldn’t help but touch her bob.
Apparently the best customer photo with Anna (as deemed by Kipling enthusiasts on the brand’s Facebook page)
will win a bag but in truth for me it was more about bonding with her…
Two cupcakes later and it was farewell to Anna and I left into the dark of the night.
If the friendly people at Kipling are reading this…

Please send Anna my way. Be an honor to have her.
I belong to the school of wearing your experience on your wrist. My armwear (my daily armour) tells you where I have been. Its like an amalgamation of my story; the why’s, when’s, who’s and my where’s.
I carry my memories with me. Jangling nosily around my wrist.Peer into the camera obscura.
