Feeling a bit tiery
Sorry! Some people play with their food, I play with my words. Although style like this is no laughing matter.
I still have a few scans from the Iris Apfel book I posted about last week and will put them up later, but just wanted to share more of the amazingness with you very quickly…. I am so in awe of her style – I LOVE everything about this outfit (the massive amber beads in the necklace! the chunky bangles! the perfection of the tiered dress – who knew that such humble colours could make such an impact?) but it was her turquoise collection (see post from last week) that had me obsessing. So much so that I signed up to eBay again (I was blackbanned from it for ages .. long, boring story but I haven’t been able to use it for about three years, so was pleasantly surprised to be able to register) and hunted for turquoise like a woman possessed for probably the better part of last weekend. I didn’t manage to find anything of the calibre of Iris’ rocks, but there is a pendant on its way to me now and I have bid on something else too. Oh dear!! I’m wondering whether there’s some deep spiritual reason I’m craving turquoise or whether it’s just the idolising of Iris that’s done it. Thoughts, anyone?
In your hunt for turquoise, try to find Bisbee turquoise. It is supposed to be the best in the world (and of course Bisbee is where my family is from). Love the dress above but I think it would overwhelm me. The first two tiers would be a great summer dress!
My favorite tier is the bottom, strictly for its color. You love of turquoise is rubbing off on me!
Oh wow I love that dress!! It is soooo cool!! 😀http://www.closet-fashionista.com
Wow, that is a daring dress indeed! I'm so glad I came across your blog! Ever so lovely!
I once read that turquoise is an extremely positive, uplifting colour…But HOW did you manage to get banned from ebay???Loving the design – like wearing several flared skirts stacked on top of each other.
How have you been darl? THis multilayered dress is amazing! COUld shrink it into a mini and it will be totally wearable 😀
