The Golden Pyramid

When you’ve got a good thing, you’ve gotta share it. I borrowed this gold pyramid bag for a shoot on Thursday and before you know it, it’s already on the blog! I’m a sucker for ancient cultures, in particular the ancient Greeks (our dogs, Theodore and Pluto, all have Greek names, and if I have kids, you bet they’ll be named after the Greeks too) and the ancient Egyptians. How can you go past the gold jewellery and the heavy eyeliner? Not to meantion all the mythologies, mysteries and mystiques! Here’s a thought for the day: did Pharoah wear a bolero? I may not be wearing one, but I’ll carry a pyramid any day, even it can’t fit anything other than a lipstick and gum in it. And after seeing all your likes on Instagram, it seems that the golden prism has immense captivating power. Someone mistook it at first for chocolate, hence the “Toblerone” reference. On second thought, it would also make a cute party hat, and a handy self-defence weapon. In case you were walking down the streets in the dark. All alone. In high heels…

当你很喜欢 一样东西,你一定会和大家分享。我为了星期四的摄影借了这个金字塔包,但今天已经在 博客上了!我从小就很喜欢古老的文化,尤其是老希腊(我们的狗都有希腊的名字,如果我有孩子,她们的名字也会有希腊名字),和老埃及。谁不喜欢金色的首饰和黑色的眼线?更何况那些难以置信的神话,神秘的故事。。。你有没有想过:法老有没有穿小外套?我没穿小外套,但我有个金字塔!它虽然装不了多少,但你们在Instagram上说你们多么喜欢这个包。有人以为这个金字塔是个巧克力,因此 那张照片。。。其实它也能当一个可爱的帽子,和一个自卫的武器!如果你晚上一个人走在街上,穿着高跟鞋。。。

Oh my gosh, I didn’t even realise it was a purse until I scrolled to the bottom of the page WOW that is super cool, its a mystery in its own right! haha. I am so obsessed with ancient cultures too, you’ve totally pulled off all the glitz and mystery that goes with them!

indeed, see? Great minds think alike :D Thank you so much, this was rather low key (Kee) really but the main feature is the bag!

That is a great bag and thank you so much for sharing. Also I love your choker and beautiful vintage top!

Pleasure! I had to show everyone how amazing Mettle Fair Trade was!

Even more in love now that I’ve seen it on the blog! Love the clean lines – I don’t think there’s anything this won’t go with. I’ll take one, please ;)

Indeed it is so beautiful crafted. That’s right, gold goes with nearly everything!

That is one of the most amazing clutches I’ve seen – and having it do double duty as a party hat makes it slightly more practical despite it’s small capacity, hehe! :)

I know right?! Plus it’s made from recycled BOMB metal from Cambodia!!


Mica January 25, 2013 at 11:00 pm

WOW that’s incredible! I so wish I had an occasion for an evening bag….

You know yours is the only blog that makes me frequently want to buy things! hahaha.

lol I’m so thrilled to hear that! It’s great to know that a beautiful lady out there has similar taste in fashion as me :D tehehehe imagine if we went shopping together!

Mica January 26, 2013 at 8:08 am

Ah you are too kind – but you definitely have great taste! :)

I’m coming to Melb in march and both excited that we could meet up and terrified of the shopping damage that may happen to my credit card…. :P

lol will you be down for fashion week?! Let’s pencil in coffee closer to the date! Ooh can’t wait for you to also meet Theodore :D


Mica January 29, 2013 at 10:10 pm

Coming down the week before fashion week :( But I still might get time to see some of the events/shows around the week. I’ll definitely be in touch once I know dates and times :)
