What is happiness

November 1, 2013

Happiness can be a lot of things. the unexpected kindness of a stranger, good news from a friend… but those cannot be photographed. So for this post, I have chosen to show you nice things that have made me happy lately.

One of the cutest makeup sets I’ve ever owned, by Pupa.

A pair of hot pink satin killer heels from Reiss. Hurry! You can still get them here, on sale!

Mr Tibbs’ smile.

A lovely 60’s poppy dress and a Welsh tapestry cape I got from a blog sale.

Finding vintage items with the original tag still on.

My beautiful gauzy original Biba, via Kinky Melon’s Retro Boutique.

How about you? What has made you happy lately?


Office Looks – totally inappropriate looks for the office.

May 31, 2013

Today I should be getting back to England from my week of wonders in Florida. As usual I am most likely extremely tired, so here’s a couple of photos from last week at the office to last until I start posting bout all my USA adventures. The common denominator this time is the lovely light peach Reiss cardigan I got from Ebay. One of the best recent purchases, I must say.

I can’t resist a sailor collar!

Shoes – Office , Dalmatian Spots Dress – Topshop Unique, Cardigan – Reiss (all via Ebay), Bow – H&M, Spectacles – GokWan

“Look! OMG! My legs are shrinking!” – Black Beret – Dorothy Perkins (on sale), Dress – H&M (from a swap with Lili), Tights – Calzedonia, Shoes – Ted Baker (via TK Maxx), Cardigan – Reiss (via Ebay).

Funny story about the shoes: I had seen them quite a few times at the Ted Baker shop at Heathrow Airport and several times felt tempted to buy them but didn’t because: a) there’s just so much I am willing to pay for jelly shoes and it it wasn’t that much b) as I was about to travel, I didn’t want to arrive at my destination with my suitcase already full. What a great surprise to have found them at TK Maxx, heavily reduced and at a more convenient time! They were, it seems, destined to join the ranks of my shoe collection.

See you on the other side of the ocean.

PS: Yes, I’ve been fooling around  with the effects on Pic Monkey!
