Odds and sods, part 5

Milligan: Someone's coming up the stairs, sir!
Bloodnok: What?! Quick, burn this on the fire.
Milligan: Right. What is it?
Bloodnok: A piece of coal.


Listening to:


Mariah Carey - "Fantasy"

I like it even better than the song it sampled (Tom Tom Club's Genius of Love).

Oh when you walk by every night
Talking sweet and looking fine
I get kind of hectic inside
Oh baby I'm so into you
Darling if you only knew
All the things that flow through my mind
But it's just a sweet sweet fantasy...


j.crew boatneck painter tee

On the wardrobe front--I've been seeking a boatneck top for quite some time. The trick lies in finding one that's not overly casual.

Not really sold on the J.Crew version yet. It's unavailable in stores (rolls eyes), so naturally I checked the J.Crew Addict blogs. Mixed reviews; some complaints about fit, and about the raw edge in last year's 'Crew model. Hm. I'd prefer one with a higher, narrower neckline, like this:

boatneck tee

The sole drawback here is the limited color selection--three to be exact (light grey, deep grey and black).

The beauty of a good boatneck is that it's practical. Done right, it can function as business-casual, as well as casual-casual, and few necklaces won't work with it. Or you can skip the necklace; few earrings wouldn't pop against such an uncluttered backdrop. Looks terrific with any hairstyle, pairs equally well with skirts or pants.

I'm not in a hurry to buy one, just looking around.


cydwoq exterior

Much as I fancy myself a total screwtard with heels, I can handle small heels. I had a pair of vintage heels when I was around fifteen that I loved, and haven't been able to replace since. These are actually not too far off, even with the Cydwoq-y cutouts...it's the vibe of the heel itself, and of the long, pointy toes.

Plus, I have been look for something like a cross between a sandal and a pump, with a closed toe.
