Passion Fruit without passion

The quarter life crisis has been proven to be an actual thing.This sense of losing , lonesome feelings as the tides of adulthood pull you into the glowing depth of boredom. This melodic nature of the easy, the comfortable way of life…result in utter boredom is the death of the creative root of passion.

Where has my passion gone? Who took it? Did I take it ? Did I leave it somewhere? Do I even want it bacK? Or the real question am I just lazy?

Not so long ago I did, in fact, have what I thought to be, passion. But, much like the every glazing approach of life has stripped it away from me. Like the leafs fall in the autumn air that lacks in South East Queensland ( Autumn is not a thing).

I used to have this focused energy and exact idea of what I wanted to be….but, now it was gone. I wanted to somehow collude the worlds of my love affair of fine leather goods ( and goods in general), with the world of advertising. In my deluded mind, I would spend my days dressed in Prozner and Chole while coming up with million dollar idea. Strange I know….oh the hope.

Little did I fail to grasp my dramatically terrible English skills that I have been reminded of since my early schooling. The borderline dyslexic copywriter is never really going to take off or sell well. 

This mindset it way I sit here, confused oh so very confused and terrified that I will work in a bland cubical and spend my days looking spreadsheets.

A passionfruit without passion is just a fruit and even then that’s not that amazing. 

Kind regards, the passionless passion fruit that now tastes bland and dull

The basic

Chelsea boot,

The plain, the simple, the easy.

I have currently been travelling around Europe and swore by my beloved Asos Chelsea boots with oxford detailing. But, sadly…..they did not withstand the constant walking around, resulting in retirement.

This post is an ode to these beautiful boots that have inspired me to possible purchases more expensive ones in the future ( several shopping carts on several online stores have been filled).  I am possibly in the near future investing in a basic staple of the R&M Williams boot, but don’t want to look like a farmer or we could go big with a really quality purchases. WHO KNOWS, more online shopping to progress.

However, I am still overcoming wearing Chelsea boots with shorts, as they make anyone on the smaller side legs look slightly larger. That been said when paired with denim the Chelsea will elongate your legs.

I will never forget the first time I wore head to toe black with them, i.e. black skinny jeans ( the Chelsea boots best friend ) and black tee. Someone told me I looked like I was in a band, lame I know….but it made me  feel great.

You will be missed and I will always love you.

 

 

Suede all Mighty

Roberto-Cavalli-Fringed-Suede-and-Sequin-Leather-Pants-marcie-claireRoberto-Cavalli-Fringed-Suede-and-Sequin-Leather-Pants-marcie-claire

Suede you magical leather. So lush and so delicate. The softer sister to leather. Worn by cool rockers and retro Queens. Now your on our door step telling us its time. Its suede time !

I keep having the reoccurring dream. In it , I am wearing the most devein hot pants ever seen in the history or not just hot pants but, pants. They are like most hot pants , amazing , but high waisted . But the hot pants of my dreams have ironically a dream like attitude for they are suede. But !!! it gets better not only are this gems a tan suede , but they are covered in fringes. And I wear this marvels of man kind with pride and a cashmere turtle neck , of course. I pretend I am a brown haired Stevie Nicks. And just have an all around wonderful time.

Now, dreams in some cultures are seen as proficies. And , it was to my pure joy , when I discovered and welcomed with wide open arm this glories trend of suede. When one is covered in suede you can be a hard core rocker or a peace love hippy , you can pick both if that your cup of tea.

So when your bring and phasing the suede , its all about picking the pieces that are you .You have to speak to the suede d, listen to it love it and it will in turn love you and let you land a hipster rocker with  Anna bun and full beard  Or me , its the mini and due to my obsession as reflected in my dream , anything with fringes. Why, have you ever danced in a fringed skirt, well let me tell you cause your clearly deprived of a truly wonderful moment , its amazing and you too look amazing more than normal.And ! they are a great time kill.

You could take the easy road to suede down aha boot route , but don’t be boring , pick a blouse, like the one from Zara here. If you want to slowly work into the club try this new topshop denim andudede finishing set, its to die for .You can also for our my experienced and devoted companies  do suede on suede, I myself can’t wait to do this, but need to source the right collection of suede. Never doubt seeded , that’s what I love about it. The softness of the fabrics and the way its drapes the body, I personal would love to see it come over to evening wear, I would buy it, I hope Chloe brings some out. ! Please Chloe please !

Back to the Future

Zara you little darling , you time traveling black hole, my one true love , my husband , my all , my everything. I don’t think you guys actually understand it , but Zara is a time traveling machine. Want to look like Marisa Brady ??? Well who doesn’t come one , why be a Jan when you can be Marisa and don’t say you don’t know who she is. Zara has this amazing quality of making me think I am in fact part of the Bardy bunch expect I am not blonde ( minor issues , I can fix that, Pantene dahhh)

Want to feel like your a 70s groupies, but in fact your too in love with air con and Intsagram …don’t sweat it literally. Zara has a the right mini skirts to  set you on a path of weed infused fun. Why be hipster when you can actually just be a 70s groupie, guys come one its so much better.

Finial , let’s just recap the most beautiful thing ever ! the new shoe , gone are the days of those ugly things that people wear and back to the dainty way off life. Thank you my husband…. thank you , dinners on the table

The Vow

untitleduntitleduntitled

I know I have vanished into the unknown world of the ‘inter web’ and I am deeply sorry. I have committed a sin almost as bad as mixing my metals….. but than again that can sometimes work. Anyway, its almost a new month and I have trailed some aspect of the globe maybe like 0.0000000009% of it. Its fair to say I have seen some stuff and half and I feel like I must share that with you all. So I promise to write more and to never by a poloy blend sweater that is more than $80. Cause , let’s me honest that’s just rude

 

Gardening the Chanel way

Chanel will never fail with endless transformations each season. This spring/summer couture provides us with of what Karl must wear on Sunday afternoon slipping lemonade taming roses. It was a truly dream like collection so soft and whimsical , wit light flowing fabric. However, like Dior primary colours are coming in strong this season and we expect many more to come, taking nod to the colours of many bloggers childhoods. There was something I just adored about the use of just strong blue tones, soft innocent blush  and  more harsh reds that work  in such harming with the normal staple black.

Although with many low wasit skirts , bearing full bottom belly does this mean goodbye to my beloved high waisted piece. Please be kind Karl we don’t have Gisele body

Good work Karl and I must say I love your garden, his very nice he can fix my garden any day.

Here are some of my most adored looks below, all images are sourced from vogue uk.

The GoGo Girls of Dior

Its Couture week everyone and my favourite Raf has done it again , he will successful break by budget , as I hunt to find a pair of orange high kneed boots. Honestly with his Spring/Summer 2015 Couture collection, what’s not to love the use of bold 60/70s inspired pallet shows the theme of stepping back into the time of Twig and I am ready for it. I do love my organs and my green !

He still keep the crisp clean shapes that are ironically Dior ! Honestly its hard to pick a favourite ! The tight dropped waist silhouette still seems to be a strong mark and I am assuming will be become very popular soon!

For when you are not wearing Cashmere

For those of you who don’t know, I live in a lovely little place in the world that right now is like living in an over worked oven owned by Martha Stuart. So for myself right now , I only have  a cashmere blanket to keep me cosy while my air con stay at a cool crisp 18 degrees. Needles to say maybe that’s why I haven’t posted in a while. I am so sorry, so deeply sorry that if I had the money everyone would get matching cashmere scarf and glove pack ( in their own colour of choice )

Back to the post shall we, so needles to say while y’all be freezing where ever you are in the world, I have been in search for the prefect summer looks and can I said it very very hard. As, one would assume this weather is not layering weather , it when the one item you are wearing must stand strong ( and not show your sweat marks , its realllly hooooooot) And for sun safe lovely also give you protection. Now , as we all know Fifty Shades of Grey is coming out and I truly love Dakota , maybe its cause we actually look the same and it great. But, I also love the way she dress. One of my favourite looks is what she wore to the Verve Clicquot Polo classi  a while back, I know it old news but the dress is timeless.

She paired a lovely Diane von Furstenberg dress and Jimmy Choo shoes. I must say I really love the hat!  This type of dress can be layer and loved for ever just add a button down to the look to dress it down or keep it as is.
