Playtime Never Ends


Its been a while since I wrote an OOTD post, only because I’ve not bought much new clothing of late. However, this week’s purchase merits an OOTD revival. It’s not about the jacket, the dress or the shoes as they are all pieces that have been featured on here before. This outfit is all about the bag.


With the emergence of adult colouring books, flat t- bar shoes and a café where you can sample an endless variety of sugary cereals, it seems like there are many of us who reminisce about the days when our lives were  all about writing in pencil, Knock Down Ginger and Saturday morning cartoons. The appearance of Play Purse onto the accessories market is right on cue.


I cannot tell you the number of miniature pocket-money purses like this I had as a child. Each starting out with an abundance of  multi-coloured beads, and ending their lives picked bald and cast aside. To see this in adult size brings back many happy memories. Old school style in a big girl size. It even comes with extra beads in case I want to go the whole hog and relive the bead picking experience, but with a big girl price tag I doubt it.

End of Year Sale!


Triangulation for the Nation

Would it be a really daft statement to say that my favourite shape is the triangle? To the point where at school, I was sometimes as Diane the trian(gle). I’m not sure if that name came about because Diane almost kinda rhymes with trian(gle), or because of my fondness for the shape. Its a kind of chicken and egg situation. In fact, now that I’m thinking about it, I believe I had a penchant for purple triangles in particular which a) makes me seem even dafter and b) negates the notion that anything you like as a child is a phase that you eventually grow out. I always like to defy conventional thought.

Browsing Etsy I came across these enameled brooches by Sketch Inc that sent my multicoloured triangular heart racing.


Pleasing to see an abundance of purple triangles to satisfy the 14 year old in me that refuses to grow up.
