Lace on Grass

Alas! The Victorian-themed birthday picnic party hosted by dear friend Mich Dulce finally happened! Since it was sadly postponed for a week as London's PMS weather chose to poo poo on her special day, but this time its indecisive climate mood swing actually decided to bless us with sun... Lots of it! We replaced tradition tea with rose wine, champagne and vodka, but still kept the English delights of homemade cupcakes and cucumber sandwiches (god I love them...), which were all thoughtfully arranged on three-tiered high tea trays. How dainty! *extends my pinky as I sip my wine, I mean... tea...) And it wouldn't be a full Victorian event if we didn't play croquet. Yes... That's right, I said CROQUET! I did feel a bit like Alice in Wonderland playing with the Queen of Hearts (minus the fear of having my head chopped off). With all the lace and top hats, monocles and bonnets, I was quite transported to another world. Except the occasional odd stares and unavoidable sneak photo takings of us. Funny enough, several pedestrians mistaken Mich's bday picnic as some kind of wedding reception! And some actually thought I was the groom because I was the most dressed-up victorian bloke there apparently? lol

Now I sit back relax, and pick up the damn vacuum and go crazy on cleaning my inhabitable wrecked flat! I want my flat to be clean, and when I say clean, I mean Asian-cleaner clean!!! (I'm allowed to say that). I am considering hiring a part-time cleaner... omg it's sooo horrible to say it out loud, but I don't even have time to clean my kitchen...ewwww..... But at least Mich's birthday got me thinking about my own birthday which is coming up... I never really threw a massive party and I'm not about to start that..... Hmmm.... Birthday for moi.. What should I do? Suggestion my lovelies?

Ok, I know I've been rambling on about how great Rick Owen's new mens spring collection is, so to prove that I'm not full of incoherent blabbering, I think it's best to show it on the body; hence, I'm proud to present a mini photo shoot featuring some of Rick's spring clothing. Also, in a previous post, the mentioned Aristide gloves I bought are finally worn and featured in the shoot. This may very well be a possible LFW ensemble but I must remember that I am lugging around a DSLR camera and a bag stuffed with my essentials (plus I always intend to take off my coat and hold on to it), so I do think I need to find that perfect balance of practicality and drama. Regardless, I must say I think this outfits will work well during one of those days, especially where I need to transition from day to night by just adding on a bit of jewelry on my fingers.
