A Day of Browns

But I miss you most of all my darling,
When autumn leaves start to fall.
-- Eva Cassidy "Autumn Leaves"
    Honestly, I don't think I've worn rivets before. It's all the rage this year, spikes and rivets on everything from bras to baseball caps. I would say I prefer only a sprinkling of the studs, from time to time, on less conspicuous places.
    I just had some chicken "Cordon Bleu" for dinner, now I'm bursting and sooo ready to go to bed. Before I tuck in, bonne nuit et fais de beaux rêves, my dears!

Black Friday

    Today I finally retrieved my parcel from the post office and upon unwrapping, I realized I've been rather drawn to black these days. Well, since it is Black Friday now, here're some shots of random black items I acquired of late. Have you done your holiday shopping?

My current favourite concealers
New booties from Romwe

Bon weekend!

Where is Your Tree?

As soon as they are flowers, they go and leave for ever.
Sweet blossom where is your tree?

    This afternoon has been spent in the pleasant company of VIVA, a Dutch magazine the lovely Lisanne has sent me as a gift for being featured in their cape article. I do not know a single word of Dutch to be honest, but I had a great time translating some of the curious-looking recipes online -- you never know what they might turn out to be!  :D

I cannot wait for skies of blue,
Or dream so long that life is through.
-- Don Besig "Flying Free"
    I adore cable knits unabashedly. I'm sure if I have a large enough wardrobe, I'd fill them with cable knits of all colours and makes. And then complain I do not have enough of them.

Sunday Morning

    This morning I'm really pleased. My sister brought some lovely persimmons over (though my imp of a niece has not the least bit of appreciation for them and spat them back out) and my favourite football team won with a nice timely comeback, whoop!
    Tonight we're going to my sister's place for dinner and then probably watch some DVDs with lots of weird unrealistic martial arts going on. There goes the leisurely (and, because of the rain, utterly unproductive) weekend. See you soon, I hope, with haul in tow !

Rouge at (Parapluie) Noir

Raindrops have brought us together that's what they were meant to do.
Maybe the break in the weather will turn into a break for you.
-- Frank Sinatra "A Fella with an Umbrella"
    I know I promised a new post in the weekend, but a good ol' heavy downpour ruined all chances of a decent photoshoot. I guess the huge umbrella and my dour expressions in this old 2011 photoshoot reflect my sentiments about this weekend rather accurately.
    In any case, I've plenty to look forward to this week (crane neck for sign of postman). I guess I better do a "new stuff" post instead if the rain won't stop pouring ... just to, ahem, appease my conscience a bit, hah! Have a good (rainless) week!

Cute Things

Source :
    Seriously, how cute is this?! Super Mario and Darth Vader taking the subway, queuing no less!! Sorry for the lack of posts this week, though. I planned to do a cat-themed post but my cat tights were missing, assumed lost in the mail  :'(
    Anyway I am going to post something else this weekend (hopefully it doesn't rain again), just want to mention a bit about the Buyer's Pick sale at Romwe, which starts from 2nd Nov - 8th Nov here.
    There are actually some really nice things in the selection. As I am still not over my gold fever yet, here are some of my (bling-bling) favourites :
Floral Lace Collared Dress
Open-front Ribbed Cardigan
Rectangle Block Gold Necklace
Metallic Pleated Cream Skirt
Paillette Shift Dress
