Spent all of today in a watermelon red sports bra and a sarong, perfect for these humid days. Tried to go to the beach, but was interrupted by unwelcome clouds and drizzle. Ate hummus. Napped. All in all, a very productive day.
So, swine flu. I can’t decide if this is one of those cases where everyone overreacts and goes crazy over nothing, or if it’s going to be Black Plague 2.0. I’m hoping for the former, thinking it’ll be somewhere between the two. What’s sure is that I’ll be washing my hands a lot, and i recommend the same for you.
On the brighter side of life… reviewing my favourite Spring ’09 collections:
Abaete // Spring 2009
Calvin Klein // Spring 2009
That dress might seriously be my favourite from Spring.
The skirts, the seamlessness of the pieces, and the colours are what really sold me on this collection. This is probably my second to Fendi.
Another detail was the neckline (high & wide) and the open arm holes.
Love the mini-corset.
Vying for third comes the wonderfully wrinkled PRADA… with those infamous heels…
Talk about bad ideas. But cute. But dangerous.
Love the ruched & wrinkled bras.
So freakin’ skeletal.
Mmm, VERSACE time!
I love looking at old (relatively) collections… it’s like talking to a friend you haven’t seen in ages. 🙂
Capping it off with YSL and the now-legendary CAGE SHOE!

I dream of endless summer
filled with warmth and light
laughter sweeps away any grief
wipes away the last tear
life is simple, pure, and clean
youth is renewed, innocence restored
sparks lit, flames rekindled
days spent lazing in the shade
long, hot nights together, forever.
Summer is the stuff of myths
the wond’rous legends of old
when anything is possible –
no story untold, no song unsung,
no limits, no bound’ries to be seen,
everything is new. Endless summer,
the last constraints tossed away
leaves life open and ready for living.
So go, spend your days carefree,
while away your hours,
dash into a field of flowers –
I’ll see you there someday.
