The Fun Stuff

And in contrast to yesterday's soul-searching, some fun stuff.  Putting together outfits is my new favourite hobby.  Here are two.

Jacket: Circle of Trust, Shirt: emma nissim,
Skirt: Anthropologie, Shoes: TK Maxx
This was a party outfit.  Actually it was a birthday party for one half of the emma nissim venture.  This T-shirt is the first item I bought from them.  They have a gorgeous little shop in Greenwich Market decorated with Victorian antiques.  They use steamer trunks to store their stocks of hand printed shirts, dresses, baby clothes, scarves, ties....  Everything is green fabric and this particular pattern of elephants helps the shop adopt an elephant in Thailand.  They also have a sea turtle design that supports a turtle in Barbados.  Their iconic designs are based on Cockney Rhyming Slang.  If you visit them at the Market, be sure to say 'Hi' to Alfie.  The Golden Lab (and their first animal model) is always lounging in the shop somewhere.  Now that I am attending their birthday parties, guess how much I have dropped since that first tee?

Jacket: Peter Werth Men's Jacket,
Shirt: a shop in Beyoglu, Istanbul
Jeans: GAP men's, Shoes: TK Maxx

This was a running errands/meetings outfit.  Nothing special, but that doesn't mean it can't still be stylish, right? That's assuming it is stylish.
