said tongue in chic


I am having a minor obsession over full skirts right now. I displayed a complete lack of prudence at Granny’s Day Out a few days ago, after twirling around in a vintage black number with little white squiggly lines all over. I’ve been looking for a print like that for a long time. (sigh)

And then I spot this beauty on Pinterest. Yokoo Gibraan, who started off with a superquirky knit fashion accessory Etsy store, has branched into clothing with her latest venture, MOTHER. (Hallelujah!)


Resist! Re! Sist!

The Beekeeper’s Daughter.



Sarah Burton’s Alexander McQueen Spring 2013 collection was awe-inspiring. I am so in love with the honeycomb / bee motif that runs throughout the collection. Not to mention all that lovely geometric construction.

It really reminded me of good ol’ Sylvia Plath, and this poem, “The Beekeeper’s Daughter” :

Haunting and mysteriously beautiful, as only Plath can be.

ooh la la, Alexa.

Grazia compiled Alexa’s Top 10 Style Hits, and I completely concur. She always gets it right… oh, how does she do it? <3

Holiday snaps to come! It was in one word – hot. Blazing, to be exact. Which lessened the enjoyment somewhat, unfortunately. But still, it was a nice little adventure and it sure did feel good to forget about work for a while. We rented a car and drove around Santorini! Which was at first very stressful but then super fun and liberating.

Anyway, more on that later :-)
