Texture Blocking

by cecylia on May 6, 2013

This outfit probably screams more orange crush than 60s mod, but I wanted to demonstrate to you how to easy it is to adapt the bright and youthful trend that shook Londoners in the 60s this season. All you need is a cocoon coat in a punchy hue, preferably one by Karen Millen, because this double-breasted wool peacoat is so warm and has pockets(!) and will match with nearly everything in your wardrobe. You name it: brights, neutrals, even lime green!

Lately at the vet clinic, a lot of clients have told me that the appetites of their kids and their pets have suddenly increased drastically. I admitted that my own appetite has increased too, any excuse to eat more cake, tehehe, and all of these changes are simply our natural adaptations to the falling mercury. We are simply being economical :)

I’m sorry that Theodore hasn’t made an appearance on the blog lately. He’s still not been a happy chappy since Pluto the poodle arrived. Their complete contrast in character, size and temperament has made them quite the odd couple. Perhaps they will just have to get along like a house that’s not on fire, which is apparently not a bad thing… Happy Monday lovelies :)

 这件衣服非常鲜艳,带着60年代的MOD气质。我想为你示范如何穿一身这款式得衣着。MOD“摩登”款式在20世纪60年代震撼了伦敦,本赛季这个款式在不同的设计师手里有很多的改编,但它依然带着年轻有活力的精神。最容易穿的MOD式样就是穿一件有双排扣的大衣。这件Karen Millen的羊毛大衣是如此的温暖,并且有口袋!它几乎和你的衣柜里的一切都能配合,而且颜色很容易搭配!

最近在兽医诊所,很多的顾客告诉我,他们的孩子与他们的宠物的胃口突然大幅增加。我承认,我自己的食欲也增加了,吃了更多的蛋糕和零食。这些变化都是因为最近的天气突然冷了下来,我们不得不多吃, 为了更经济化。:)

Theo! Yey! Sorry to hear him and Pluto are still having teething problems – but I’m sure over time they will become inseparable :)

Love your bright outfit – the coat and pants go really well together. And that clutch is stunning. Once again I was looking for a link to go buy…..lucky it only comes in white or I would have bought it. I’m too clumsy for a white bag :P

hopefully although time hasn’t made them closer nor has absence :D Thank you re the bright outfit- it’s getting cooler in Melbourne so wearing bright and warm-coloured clothes sure helps! Jacki will be launching her new collection soon so I’ll keep you posted :)


Mica May 9, 2013 at 5:52 pm

haha oh yes please do keep me posted on the new collection! My credit card will quake in anticipation :P

It’s funny, I saw the tote you’re wearing in shop till you drop magazine the other day – thought of you right away! It was cream and white, really nice. If the internet on the trainline hadn’t been so patchy I would have sent you a pic :)

And I know if anyone can convince Pluto and Theo they are really best buds it will be you :)
