I've been a very bad blogger, I apologize. The re-entry into home life sort of kicked my ass. Dumpling was non-too-pleased about my vacation, and while she was a doll for her father while I was away, she expressed her displeasure upon my return by turning into Carrie. BB, on the other hand, missed me terribly and has been stuck to me like glue. Add a minor flood at one store, a major AC failure at the other, a sick relative, a broken pool heater and a huge communications malfunction with the store servers and I've been a bit overwhelmed with everything....
Today, things started looking up. The Amazing D and her fabulous husband A were in town today (she must now be referred to as the Amazing Dr. D, PhD) to celebrate her graduation, so we hooked up for a late breakfast. It was very good to catch up.
I managed to upload my pictures, and I will now regale you with my shopping.
Here is the much discussed Gerard Darel Jacket (I had mispelled it last week) and the cute flats.
I also got a cute top from him, but I took a picture and I look like death warmed over, so I'll spare you. I msut say, when I hit his website and saw that Charlotte Gainsbourg was his model/muse/spokesperson, it all made sense suddenly. As a teenager, I wanted to be Charlotte. I saw her movies, I read all the teenage mags about her. For a French speaking girl in the 80s, Charlotte was the IT girl.
I also bought an adorable top from Comptoir des Cottoniers, but it's in the wash.... I would describe their store as Benneton meets organic.
And finally, i did my best shopping at Promod:
see a theme forming here? I told you, under the guidance of the great Mrs. Figby, Grey is the new Neutral.
And no, i am clearly NOT the model in these pictures!
