29 July 2009


today i have been ugg-clad and thinking of autumn. not a good thing is it for july? but it's dark outside and raining and actually a little bit cold. i have even given the woodburning stove a sneaky glance on more than one ocassion. can i confess that part of me wishes time would roll on by and just get to the lovely new season? i love that september feeling when things start to change. it doesn't help that i just got emails previewing fall collections for noa noa and boden.

other topics of the day included the new trend for no eyebrows in relation to the economic climate...umm no...no thank you. yes it seems that the less affluent we are the more tweezer-happy we become...according to some experts on the radio anyway. admittedly i have abused my own over the years. cue the screen doing that hazy-memory-wobbly-thing...some "looks" unfortunately were documented in photo form. but can i blame my over-plucking in the early 90s on the housing crash? and what about that cringeworthy experiment with bleach inspired by something i saw in italian vogue? luckily this one was only previewed to c in our early courting days...and the man still married me...he's definitely for keeps!

summing up...i'm dreaming of headscarves and big eyebrows.

  1. I am so pleased it's a bit cooler and I too am giving thought to winter clothes.
    We have finally got the rain that should have been her at lunchtime.....

  2. It is so autumnal, the sort of weather that makes you want to buy a new pencil case and school bag.


  3. It does feel as though summer is over.Actually I read somewhere that in the middle ages 1st August was considered the first day of Autumn.


thank you from the heart for leaving me a message...your hellos and encouragement mean a lot to me! i will do my very best to reply individually to each comment via the same post so do check back. x
