Eternity in Sydney City   Leave a comment

“Sydney is rather like an arrogant lover. When it rains, it can deny you its love and you can find it hard to relate to. It’s not a place that’s built to be rainy or cold. But when the sun comes out, it bats its eyelids; it’s glamorous, beautiful, attractive, smart, and it’s very hard to get away from its magnetic pull.”

Summertime, and the Livin’ is Easy   Leave a comment

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’
So hush, little baby, don’t you cry

“Summertime,” lyrics by DuBose Heyward and Ira Gershwin

One of the things I don’t like about living in the South is the heat in the summer.  As I always say when someone thinks I’m insane for wanting to move back to Michigan year round, “You can dress for the cold.  You can’t undress for the heat — legally.”

Well, at least you can dress as lightly as possible; that helps a little.  This outfit by Liziaah does the trick quite nicely.

Today is the first day of summer, and that reminded me of something I once wrote about back in my political-blogging days:  donating blood.

Puttin’ On the Ritz   Leave a comment

If you’re blue an’ you don’t know
Where to go to
Why don’t you go where fashion sits
Puttin’ on the Ritz

You can definitely “put on the Ritz” in Kelini Couture.  I’m sad to get the announcement that the haute couture side of the store will be closing down, but there’s still the chance to pick up one or two new dresses; while Jem, who had only been to Kelini once, found an opportunity to grab some of the highest-octane gowns on the Grid at a very affordable price.

More in-depth shots and the details after the fold.

Kelini Couture is Closing   Leave a comment

In case you haven’t heard, Kelini Couture is closing as a house of haute couture.  It’s time for a break, according to sources, and so the emphasis is shifting to their urban line, called Haters.

For gown addicts like me — I’d spend a day swathed in an evening gown, if I could — this is sad news.  But they’re holding a clearance sale, and it’s an opportunity, too, to pick up the Eva Kelini gowns you don’t have.  Most of the store is L$ 350 or less, except for the newest (and last, for a time at least) spectacular on the New rack.  Head on over before they close for remodeling!

Hopefully photos in future….
