have a very pantoney christmas

for those of you who know me, you will be aware (mildly at the least) of my Pantone obsession.
and, yes, i know, most people will be thinking what on this gohdly earth is Pantone. yet in my lazy pre-Christmas bottomly state, i do not have the effort or flow of words to formulate a satisfactory answer. and so, i say, thank goodness for wikipedia. read-up my colour-ignorant freundlings.

for those all-knowing individuals, you will no doubt understand my gasping joy when i spied these classy little numbers oozing from googl-ling searches.

behold the Pantone bauble. trumping the wits out of the Pantone mugs and iPhone/Paddy whack cases with a generous nudge of Christmas spirit. i mean imagine (just image my darlings) the ornamental delight of an entire tree covered in these sparking, colourful wonders. truly a graphic designers every wish would be granted with such a spectacle!

however, due to my locational flaw, these babies will not shower my very spirit with colourful joy this merry season...but being patient individual (i had to force myself not to type darling there. i mean, only true hedonistic hyaenas call themselves a 'darling') i am happy to wait until next year. or the year after for that matter.

what colour would you choose?

i guess in a rather diagonal manner, I am attempting to write a merry christmas message to all my happy readers.
thank you for the darling messages and engaged patience. hopefully the new year will see a boom in happy customers (could i call a blogging follower such a name?) and inspirational moments.

Merry merry christmas my dears! jingle those bells til there's no tomorrow. pear those partridges and red nose that reindeer– christmas is here!

put that on your wanted poster

la garçonne is, in my case, a no-fail pick-me up. one glance at their "new arrivals" section has me grinning from ear to ear.
and yes, I know, not everyone will have the same cheshire cat reaction, but it is worth a look anyway.... check out the babe'n site here

every visit to this online boutique of epic awesomeness brings a new "most wanted list".
My current obsessions are tassels, baggy pants, knitted shorts, booty-boots (similar to bossy boots only cooler) and of course, karen walker sunnies– but you knew that already didn't you (cue cheeky all-knowing smile...)

drum roll please.............

rachael comey harem pants, wendy nichol bullet bag, rachael comey birdie boot, a-wang shorty shorts, vpl bra, karen walker shades.

i sigh at the beauty of these few items. so pretty, so chic (who says that....?). I reckon chic (pronounced chique– french accent is more than necessary here) is a bit like sassy. you never really think to use it, and when you suddenly do, it emerges from your mouth like some archaic piece of word vomit, hurtled through time and wind pipes by some drunken, confused and slightly romantic Scotsman (undoubtedly buried in your stomach)....

definitely words i need to use more often

knocking my freakin socks off

you all know i love this stuff
i've written about it like a gazzilion times before. okay maybe once... but whose counting anyway

i am not going to shy away from my love of gawdy prints and tacky patterns.
and, hey, if i want to dress head to toe hawaiin print, then i should be able to without the scornful disapproval of the so-called fashion police. silly mexicans

stella understands better than anybody just how damn freakin cool that would be.

want want want want

and a little late addition....
