What is it about winter months and our need to cover ourselves in rolls of grandiose fabrics, godzillion sequins and layers of foundation.
And on that same note also suddenly need to drink out of goblets and eat off chargers?
I have no idea, interestingly enough, I for one cannot plan a winter wardrobe without the essential velvet this and velvet that. Do I feel royal even in my purple velvet suit ..hmm sadly no, not really, but I can say that I damn well feel good in mine. Very rock and roll chic, Jagger chic!!!!!
Ok, To Hackney Marsh.....
"To the Mattresses " surely I am not the only one who grew up memorising and remembering lines from the Don chi chi of all movies, The God father!!!!Long live Mario Puzo, Long live the god father .
What in the flying monkeys am I talking about? What is all of this Mumbo jumbo my friends? I will tell you ( before you fall asleep) it means to go to war. Yes you read right, war...
Why am I suddenly in this mood when only hours ago I wrote the prior epistle on how happy I am just lustily lusting after all of Marco De Vincentnzo's colourful creations.
What can I say, I am fickle, may have botherline personality issues but trust me I have reason .
So to cut the long story short , I have just had feed back from daddy's parent teacher meeting for our three year old and I am cross ...yeah yeah another over ambitious mom I hear you say, not at all.
Shall I say that in a subject only familiar to people in early years learning , which assesses a child's social skills, via sharing activities engaged with family at home, sports, outings, etc it appears my Tata is meeting expectations!!!!!! What does this even mean?
"Meeting expectations " ? Is that for all or for girls? I don't think we will ever shatter those glass ceilings by just meeting expectations.
No my friends we have to do better, we have to be better than the boys, better than the girls , just better.
I can't imagine Hilary or Michele ever met expectations in social interactions no , surely not and yet we are still First Ladies FFS (For Flora's sake 🙄 what did you think ??..)
That said, it means I have to generate these activities so my Tata can actually have something to talk about, so her assessment is actually mine .
Mine because as I drag myself home Friday night swearing about late admissions and being incredibly tireeeed and having exactly fifteen minutes for each babe before bed time, you can imagine what my Tata has to talk about at nursery....
So today I will be dragging myself out of bed , aching joints and all , wrapping up , wellington boots in situ and marching off to somewhere with muddy puddles and animals, as my Tata must out talk those boys in her class come this Monday !!!
On a slightly more happier note , the post man has been and delivered my recent auction wins, I am obsessed with vintage kitchenelia, so enjoy my recent loot while I march off to the mattresses!!!!!
If you want to know, first from top right; pastry cutters, meat press, pie funnel and jelly mould.
So my friends to Tilly out talking all those boys come this Monday , and seriously , to encouraging our daughters to be everything they can be and more..
Marco ... this can only be true love 💕💕💕
image courtesy of Pinterest, I have no idea who the awesome artist is, but what a beautiful illustration.
Continuing on the topic of awesome wearable art which make me go arrrrrrhhhh, I can't help but share my current source of joy.
we all need enablers in our lives, so here we go.
Shall we say I think Marco De Vincenzo is a genius, or an awesome artist, is this possible... I am in love with two Italian men at the same time.... oh dear little ole me !!!!!!

As I explore my personality, I continue to surprise myself even shock myself, as in the pictures in this blog, it turns out that as I've gotten older I do like colour after all and particularly in this case , the most awesome collection of jewel tones, I love embellishments, sparkly stuff, frills , feathers all of !!! Oh dear me , I think you get the general gist....
Madam Androgynous chic is ......a girly girl 😱
Is this a female mid life crisis and the equivalence of a red sports car?? Hmmm I am enjoying it whatever it is.
Who even dreams of colour in frosty November ? In England that is ?
Or perhaps still continuing on the issue of getting over whatchmacallit , damn !!!!
I will just stop and say it as it is ....... I love them shoes, I do I do I do!!!!!!!!
And another thing, I think about these even more than I dare say, the daily balancing of mathematical equations,
: mortgage vs feathers on my feet,
: childcare vs pom-poms on my feet...
But they are are future collectibles, couture!!!!! I hear my self muttering in my dreams .
Who needs a house after all, Carey turned out all right.....
Marco De Vincentnzo
Thanks to genius Italian men we can all indulge in a bit of rainbow madness, dream of technicolor magic, even if only on our feet, a bit of couture , a piece of Italian glam....
Between Alessandro and Marco one can easily say 2016 has been a beautiful year at least in the world of fashion.
All shoes featured ; Marco De Vincentnzo
My friends who is with me? Is technicolor the new black? Are we now allowed more than a little rouge on the soles of our shoes?? What is this ???
