You can have too many...

Facelifts, old newspapers, small coins from countries you will never again visit, botox injections, spray tans, t-shirts with cute slogans, electrical appliances that no longer work, 2-minute noodles, plastic bags, uncomfortable shoes, too small jeans, too tight tops, any other form of ill-fitting outer and inner wear, novelty g-strings...

But you can never, ever have too many...

Who am I?

I'm warm and snuggly and go with everything, yet I am also capable of flattering any figure.

A: This amazing knit skirt by Concepcion Poblete of course!

Get down in spider town

Today I asked my 3 year old daughter what she thought of this jacket. She said she really liked it because it looks like a 'spider outfit,' black, like something a spider would wear. She would have to be one sartorially clued-up spider if you ask me. Thankfully, Melbourne cult label, Manque, make this jacket not just for eight-legged blood suckers, but in grown-up-lady sizes too.

Jail break

Heartbeats they were racin'
Freedom she was chasin'
Spotlights, sirens, rifles firing
But she made it out
With this jacket on her back
Jail break

Baby it's cold outside

I can't feel my hands and all I can think about is hot chocolate and Gilmore Girls repeats. But in my Satu trench cardi, I know I at least look good.

Betty Jo deco - exclusive to Pussycat Black!

There was a Melbournian who lived in a shoe.
She wore so much black she didn't know what to do.
Then one day she met these Betty Jo numbers
And she got an idea, so loud, like thunder.

Their names were Coco, Josephine, Clarice, Bessie, Zelda and Gret
Inspired by art deco greats, impossible to forget
She pinned one to her favourite black sweater
And just like that, life felt so much better.

Pop goes the weasel

Concepcion Poblete call this the 'jack in the box' tunic. I don't know why. What I do know is that if this popped out of my jack-in-the-box I would rip it off her and put it on myself. So there.

She was so sweet, so innocent

She was so sweet, so innocent
Until potato-peeler came to town
So white and shiny
Impossible to put down

She wore a gorgeous floral skirt
That no one could resist
By Dot and Herbey none the less
Vintage with a twist

'Ah potato-peeler!'
The town folk they exclaimed
He brought her to a brave new world
Now 'wanton' is her middle name
