  1. OMG! I had that exact kimino top from H&M! I wore it while living in Spain a lot and an Italian friend of mine loved it. When it came to saying goodbye (she was leaving for good to return to Italy) I gave it to her as a farewell gift.

    1. That's hilarious, we really are very similar Veshoevius, so it's not just the curly black hair it's the kimono top taste too! I love the top too, although it's a real mare when I'm trying to cook supper :)

  15. I love these photos and I have a penchant for trailing sleeves. My ancient great aunt said I was born to be a lady as they were hopeless for doing anything other than being decorative! She's right, though. As I've found to my cost when they trail in unwanted places.

    1. Ditto, I end up having to tie these sleeves up when I'm cooking otherwise they fall into the food! It's worth the hassle for being a glamorous lady though :)

  16. Oh, Emalina, the sleeves, the pointy boots, the pattern mix, and the mask - all tremendous!
    Lovely cat and wallpaper too. :)
