I met up with Mr.HB on business recently and found myself a wee bit early so naturally I strolled through the shops...and I did get up to a bit of mischief!
Evan Picone striped black and white top
Lanvin navy white and orange silk scarf
g 21 skinny jeans
Timberland leather booties
a touch of silver
sterling silver bangles
I read in a magazine that skinny bracelets are now "OUT"
Who makes this stuff up anyway?
I plan to continue to wear mine.
I don't need to be "IN" anyways.
Deeply discounted INC striped dress
will be a great piece for spring and summer and I tried it on with leggings and the look works.
I may look for a vibrant red leather belt to add a punch of colour.
My Hermes black and white scarf will go with this too.
I had a tiny nub left on my Chanel lipstick so I splurged and bought a new one in a brighter shade.
A bit more noticeable than the Legende that I have been using for several years.
I read a book on perfumes several months ago and have been sampling a few of the scents that I was interested in over the past couple of months to see which one would suit me.
When looking for a new fragrance you really must wear it for a few days so ask for a sample to try before buying the entire bottle.
Mitsouko by Guerlain is quite lovely and lives up to it's name, which when translated, means mystery.
It was created in 1919 so it has been around a long time.
I don't know if it would be considered a classic like Chanel No.5 but I cannot bring myself to wear No.5 because Mother wears it.
Everywhere Mother and I go people comment on how alike we are so I really want to have my own scent!
(She is 86 and I am almost 59 so I think it must be my grey hair!)
Have you ever heard of lined leggings?
I hadn't but these are great for our colder weather and will work well with a couple of my longer tops.
I only have two longer tops left after the wardrobe purge.
One day when I feel motivated I'll count up what I have left and write about my minimalist wardrobe.
I like the zipper detail on the INC tunic/dress.
Look what arrived in the post today!
A card from Naomi of coulda shoulda woulda.
She recently celebrated a year of blogging and gave away some Hermes leather charms.
Thank you Naomi!
I have a wee teapot which is perfect for me because I love tea so very much!
