I Am Not A Pillow Case & Other White Objects


I have this funny feeling that WHITE (along with peachy nudes) might be the order of the day for spring/summer 2010. I bought this jersey dress from All Saints a few weeks ago. It was in the sale so I was quick to grab myself a bargain.

When All Saints make a garment out of jersey, you can bet your bottom penny that it will be amongst the softest you can get. I especially like it because it hangs/moves so well, in an almost fluid manner in fact. Also, it's such a breathable and stretchy fabric so its lovely for everyday wear.


I remember when All Saints was a men's shop! I remember when it became a tiny chain. I always thought of it as rather exclusive and avant garde for the high street. But things have changed and All Saints is a common feature almost everywhere. *sigh* Is it so wrong of me to feel a touch disappointed at the surging success of a Brit brand? Oh dear I am thoroughly selfish!


On with my pillow talk:










I must admit, I just love clothing that you can "play" with.



Thank you for the compliments on my floral tights!

This close up is for you:
I am actually wearing 2 pairs of tights here. A cream pair beneath the floral display.




I am still in a state of jolly YAAAAAY about my very first DSLR. Yes, I now own a mighty Canon 450D. I am chuffed to bits.


Here are my very first experimental photographs using my new Mini Munny buddies (the evil one is mine and the woodcutter is Hiro's):


Using a fully automatic mode.



In manual using A DEP (automatic depth of field) no flash.




In manual using TV and playing with white balance.



Project Mini Munny


Thanks to a recent gift from my dear "China Plate", I have been inspired! I want to send a Mini Munny to a few people who pique my creative curiosity and ask them to run wild with their, paints, pens, decos etc....and then I WANT IT BACK!! Hahaha I want to collect a little undiluted bit of my friends in this way. A few bloggers will definately be hearing from me soon!!


In the meanwhile, Hiro and I will be stamping our personalities all over the blank duo above so watch this space

What the Dickens is that?

Well it is a photo taken with my new camera!

What is in the photo? ummm well, it's the shell of a dead and dried up sea urchin that my little brother found and gave me while we were out in Zanzibar. I have kept it ever since because I think it is pretty.
What are you up to this weekend?
Aside from gettingt snap happy, I am planning a trip to my local cinema to watch Micmacs the new bound to be fantastic film my Jean-Pierre Jeunet.


See you on the otherside of the weekend.

  6. Loving the dress and tights. Like it best as a hoodie (very Kylie) and leave it alone. Also really like your sea urchin, it looks like a bejeweled bag or purse.

  8. I love the hoodie look picture best.
    The cutting-age clock, the subtle shadows on the wall, Your Beautiful Self, the simple yet stylish hair-do which compliments the hoodie so well, the way you team up the pure white dress with groovy rose tights, and the way you stand - each and all have a strength of charcter that form a cohesive, enchanting and mesmerizing whole...
    This is indeed one of my favourite pictures.

    The little munnies are cute - especially the one holding the axe. On second look, it is actually holding onto the axe like a walking stick! How adorable is that!

  11. I love your dress! Very fresh and spring-y. Jealous that you got a new camera! Well I did buy the 450D as well during Boxing Day sales but decided to return it because I don't have the time to learn how to use DSLRs yet...

  15. Wow what a cool looking dress, I love it! And will you plzzzz tell me where you got those amazing tights?

  16. I am loving the many looks dress...I lolled reading your timeline of All Saints store,,,I get what you mean though, the more established the poorer the more expensive the product gets.

    Furthermore, the ubiquity of items is too much to bear and I am forced to shop elsewhere to catch that one off piece. I feel this way about Laden showroom and to a certain extent Hurwendeki boutique on commercial street.

    Still love the latter more than I can express though .
