Orange Liqueur


If you follow on twitter you know that I somewhat dealt with my Primark aversion this past week. The shirt the entire set is built around is from said shop and yes, before you ask, I bought more than the solitary shirt. Before you scorn, let me state my case. I almost think there is something immoral about clothing being available that cheap - it beggars the question 'who is profiting here' but the politics aside, I hate crowds of people and I hate queuing hence why I don't do Carnival and I would rather pay a bit extra to be fast-tracked on to the plane!


But I digress...I think I am totally in love with thinking of MCB as a magazine so tell me, do you like the latest Style Book offering? I have included snippets from some of my favourite poets such as Pablo Neruda, Eavan Bowland and Derek Mahon. There are also not one but 2 uniquely covet-able bag featured so get clicking on that magazine! BTW I shall be announcing the winner of my huge give-away tomorrow :)

  1. I get what you mean with the Primark thing. I study Retail Buying and at the moment we're looking at the social and environmental effects of retailing, and it makes me feel bad sometimes that I go into Primark.

  2. Hi Promise, I hear you on that. I think the effects you mention are some of the main driver for development of my own micro label MOSHI LASHI. I think given the choice, people want to know the total production history of their apparel and more than that, they are prepared to pay a fair price to all involved.

    Thanks for joining in with the convo. Hope you enjoyed the images xx

  7. John, you are so right. In comparison to many outfits I have been known to get excited about, this was cheap as chips but I felt just as stylish as if I was head to toe in Victoria Beckham! lol (Must say I actually don't know what that feels like....)

  11. Hi Lynn, As I hardly use such strong colours I did think to include details...The lipstick is MUDSLIDE 7 by Collection 2000, a cheap drug-store brand over here. If you can't located it, I can pop one in the post to you xx

  12. Hi Mulika,
    I do like the idea of extending your blog into an online magazine. From the links I've seen on FBFF, I think it's a great adventure to pursue.

  13. Thanks for your thought on that! The more I experiment with the form, the more I fall in love with the slickness. It would also mean I could feature material, other creatives and bloggers that I get excited :)

  14. You are indeed a uberbabe!

    ...and I loved your essay. Brevity be damned. If you've got something to say, I want to hear all of it!

    Ahhh I do enjoy wearing a Primark Australian equivalent and having someone mistake it for something else, more expensive... amuses me greatly.

    You are seriously beautiful. This colour is divine on you... I'm a fan for life!

    I have ishoes too... :D

  15. Dusk, would that Australian label be Supre by any chance. If so, I love their stuff! I stumbled upon it on line and I gather it is cheap as chips out there.

    Thank you for your kind words. The surprise that blogging brings are the magical ones you stumble upon. You strike me as great :)

  16. P&P, I wish I could claim the bag(s) for myself but they belong to a friend that was out with us. I was seriously lusting after them and had to picture them. Glad you liked it :)
