unbounded fashionality

“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Coco Chanel

Thrift shopping

Originally uploaded by johnnycutcorners
Recently I have been exploring charity shops, usually such shops are seen as undesirable (In the UK anyway) with smelly clothes and bric a brac, sometimes a place where you can grab a bargain, even if you are lucky a tennis racket with the sleeve for 70p or a new paperback for 50p!! Seriously this is good for shoppers but really, they should charge more than that!

Anyhow, I wanted to explore and yes, found some gems-

a vintage kati by Laura Phillips (circa 1970's??) navy shirt dress. I'm not sure about the sleeves as they are long and ends aren't nice but sure I can tailor them or roll up.

a long block print skirt, orange, white and black by St Michel (Now M&S), circa 1970 , must be as very 70's

A gorgeous tunic dress, blck with climbing flowers (from Next probably a year old)

Yes of course these aren't brand new but its great finding bargains and helping charities too....now if only I can find a Ulla Johnson scarf from her Autumn 08' collection!

Do go to charity shops, even to nose around, you never know what you may find, I certainly was surprised.

Pomegranates are a power food, contating three times the antioxidant power of green tea. Greek women traditionally use them in skin preparations so they are great applied to skin too.

Try Original source pomegranate and fig shower juice and Radox smoothie spirit (shower product). Your skin willthank you and they are a delight to use!

Flower power

Originally uploaded by rosemary*
Flowers are amazing,hey provide plenty of inspiration for books, poems and fashion.

I personally love floral prints in clothing; tutus and ruffles are reminiscent of petals, colours are important too, Indian saris and traditional clothing reach to nature for inspiration.....deep pinks, purples, bright yellows and oranges, they provide an infinite spectrum of colour variations.

Flowers, you are truly glorious!

Truth and beauty

if truth is beauty how come no one has their hair done in a library? Lily Tomlin

Lily Tomlin uses metaphor ('truth is beauty') and false 'logic' to propound this 'quasi-intellectual' and perplexing and amusing riddle.
