Coveted Bag: Alexander McQueen Box Bag

Of all the eccentric haute couturiers, Alexander McQueen is the one I have resisted the most. Not because I dislike their creations, some of them rather radiant. More to do with the fact that McQueen has been using fur (a big no-no) and when said designer uses Rabbit fur, that is a double negative. With […]


Fashion is best understood as a wave. It comes and goes, trends and fads rarely remains. Quickly forgotten. Style on the other hand is a circle, though it seems at times far away. It is never truly gone and always returns. Even if we need to be reminded of its charms. If one stays true […]

Drink Me

In the realm of adult seduction, alcohol is a tool with varied successes. To some, a means of loosing one’s inhibitions. Or at worst a bases for some very questionable sex. As long as no one is harmed, just part of life’s rich tapestry. While I am not a drinker, I have to admit to […]

Eastern Flavour

Whilst seeking inspiration, I find myself being drawn to more Eastern aesthetics and touches. By Eastern, I am focusing on more classically Asian designs and motifs, from India to China to South Korea. While I adore Japan, their interior designs usually leave me a bit cold. Not because they not are bad, just a lacking […]

Sincerely Yours

Occasionally one starts an entry and within that embryonic idea. Another idea surfaces. As a lover of writing and a¬†functionally Luddite, the idea of writing with pen and paper is rather romantic. While emails and texts delivers on speed and never risking the loss of post. I feel that writing letters or just writing things […]

Darken My Door

So I am fascinated by the the more ‘unusual’ styles or decor, when that day arrives. I can hopefully create an environment […]
