Sleuths and Hounds

    Of late I have taken to revising my old copies of Agatha Christie as a bit of bedtime reading. A tad masochistic, I'd grant, but M. Poirot and his impeccable moustache (not to mention the ingenious plots and devious characters) are simply too charming to resist!
    Oh, and just last week Darcy of Snupped sent me a most darling laptop case printed with my photo of choice. This time it is made with their Spacesuit fabric which is quite glossy and waterproof. Perhaps you'd find the dog a bit familiar, eh?  Bises ♥♥

Books and Blossoms

Scattered polaroids and sprinkled words around your collar,
In the long run, you said you knew that this would happen.
-- Maximo Park "Books from Boxes"

Just some photos snapped before taking a nap on a Sunday afternoon.

Luncheon at M Café

Don't ask 'em to dinner or breakfast or brunch
'Cause girls, they wanna have lunch.
-- Weird Al Yankovic "Girls Just Want to Have Lunch"
    During the days when I lived near Ximen District, a perfect weekend morning would be summarised as such :  grocery shopping at the gourmet supermarket in Fe21, followed by a huge lunch at M Café Dolci & Trattoria on the way home, occasionally making a stop at a nearby bookstore to pore over the latest fashion magazines. 
    M Café 's menu features mainly Italian dishes, and is changed regularly depending on the season. The food, well, it always leaves me scraping the bottom of the plate despite an overstuffed belly on the verge of bursting.
    Oftentimes, after a meal, I would simply linger a little longer, lazing on my padded seat while soaking in the afternoon sun, daydreaming a little perhaps, and wishing for just one more sip of the famous truffle mushroom soup.

Jade Rose

The green roses will grow, while green fields turn to red
Only memory remains of hero and his faith.

-- Orthodox Celts "Green Roses"


    A rather random outfit, spurred by boredom on a weekend afternoon. I am wearing a dress as a top, and it makes the skirt look extra pouffy. To be honest, I kinda like all the pouffiness since it reminds me of gorgeous full skirts in the good ol' days!

    I'm off now, going to mull over a watermelon chiffon skirt or a floral jacket online while humming off-key to Youtube's golden oldies. Bonne semaine  :D

Green Lakes

Asked the green lake if it mirrored her amber eyes
And lay in silence to hear his innermost.

-- Atargatis "Green Lake's Ground"


    It is surprisingly easy to write a post when you already have the title in your mind. When I saw the dyed patterns on this pleated mint green dress, I thought of faraway landscapes and tranquil green lakes and perhaps of whispering winds in the morning light.

    Speaking of green lakes, the snippet of lyrics I quoted above tells of a melancholic love story. It is a beautiful song. If you have never heard it, here is the link. And if you love fantasy fiction and J.R.R. Tolkien, I'm sure you'd enjoy the band Atargatis as much as I do  ;)

Pour Chloé

Once again the leaves has returned to the trees.
I can just feel that soft summer breeze.

-- The Temptations "It's Summer"


    There you are, a post with L'Eau de Chloé and one of my new dresses from LagunaMoon. Sorry it turns out so faux wedding-y -- when I saw the embroidery on the dress, it seemed to be singing Herr Mendelssohn's Wedding March to me  ;)

    By the way, the weather was quite lovely that day. I'm utterly glad that I took the pictures then because it just wouldn't stop raining since. Oh, and I do realize that the ruby red nails didn't go too well with the styling, but since my only bottle of polish remover was down on its last smelly drops, I could only turn a blind eye and beg you do the same! :P
