Is turquoise fur a little too wild?

I recently saw this pic of Sarah Jessica Parker looking amazing in her silky, rather bright turquoise blue fur coat, teaming the look with unusual coral pumps. By the way are those jelly shoes? I think I can see her toes through them!

But somehow when I see robin's eggshell blue, I'm tempted to team it with pink and red roses in a shabby chic sort of way...
See what I mean? Maybe one could add a bit of cowgirl shabby chic with such a turquoise fur by donning a pair of cowboy boots, adding some pretty roses perhaps in the way of a scarf and and some light blue denim. I might even throw in a vintage 1980's bolo tie!
 or perhaps with these floral socks and deep red shoes...
 maybe something like this rosy scarf...
and maybe a short hip length jacket in a Swiss blue would be more manageable and cheaper too...
 how about a silvery blue one?
or maybe this one that's a little more on the teal side... Cute!

sorry, I just can't resist... found this little guy online:
Shut the front door! OMG it's Ken, as in Barbie's babe, in his fluffy turquoise fur jacket - someone's selling this item of clothing for dolls - I know!!! No, I don't think the Ken doll is included...

Tasty trend: silhouetted palm tree print

 very trendy...
 like the drink Tequila Sunrise...
pretty pastels...
 or perhaps an actual photograph - so Bora Bora...

They're making me homesick for coastal places where I've lived like Sydney and Southern California!

Camo and roses

I've got these camouflage cargo pants which I'm bravely trying to pair with other prints, as long as they have at least some of the colors in the camo print, in this case olive, black and even brown when the red and olive overlap. I've also teamed the remix with a burgundy red satchel to be worn cross-body to free up the arms and prevent slippage over the shoulder.
 as for shoes, perhaps red jelly sandals...

Lauren Hutton in jelly sandals

I was delighted to see actress Lauren Hutton in her jelly sandals! Though the pic is in black and white and it's hard to tell what color they actually are - rootbeer or raspberry perhaps? The sandals are on the unusual side for fisherman's sandals as they have open toes...

Sally Hansen Strobe Light 200 holographic glitter nail polish

 
I've realized that I'm not quite over my crush over holographic metallic things.  This Sally Hansen Strobe Light 200 holographic glitter nail polish, which has a clear base and pink metallic glitter with a rainbow holographic touch is perfect for a blush pink / nude look with a touch of glitz...

Valiant Thor boots

my silver glitter jelly boots arrived today and as I wore them, I thought they're just like the boots you'd expect someone like Venusian intergalactic traveler Valiant Thor to wear... Don't they look "space age?" Damn right they do! Otherwise, I'll refer to them as my kinky boots... Read more about them here…

and here's an amazing song Whatever Lola Wants from Brit film Kinky Boots - enjoy!

Crushing on: mint green winter coat

this looks like a very cool pale mint coat but I'm not sure what the exact hue would turn out to be...
this one looks like a celery green...

this one is a pretty Deco green...
if it was yellower...

if it was bluer...

and then this really pretty jade green, which I like the best!
yes, this shade looks quite perfect, especially when worn with something pink...

Seems to have a certain Art Deco charm, especially when worn with pink and pewter, silver or hologram! Other possibilities are pairing it with purple, red, orchid pink, peach, yellow, teal, oxblood, cobalt blue...

Color blocked cutie

a tall cool drink of orchid pink and navy blue - very sleek in a goddess gown sort of way and yet nautical due to the navy...
Did anyone say "navy?"
As the song says "tyranny of distance" (ever flown to the US or Canada from New Zealand or Australia?). And here's Kiwi pop group Split Enz with Six Months in a Leaky Boat - enjoy!

Feeling tropical with this luscious orchid bomber

 
crushing over this really cute tropical pink, mauve and lilac orchid print quilted bomber jacket that is just so very Hawaiian that I can just hear the music. Maximum tiki appeal!
 
 I want to pair the Hawaiian print with camo pants for this tropical / military look...
and reign in all that masculinity of the USMC woodland camouflage cargo pants with a cute lilac knit top!
 
hey this pink, mauve & purple Missoni style knit top with metallic thread would go with it!
 
 or maybe with this vintage Indonesian mauve cutout skirt...
 and perhaps these lilac jelly babies...
"Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Hawaiian singer Iz

French vanilla lace dress and floral jacket

 a very tasty French vanilla colored lace dress - this one is from modcloth.com I believe...

and you have to wear the lace dress with a lovely rose print biker jacket!
 this moto jacket by Givenchy is pretty spiffy with an extra zipper...
 and this sporty rose print track suit jacket with sleeve stripes is by Adidas...
though this quilted bomber jacket from Australian Target by Hot Options is pretty awesome with so many colors!

What girls want: floral moto jacket

Answering the age-old question: What do women want?  Hooray for biker jackets with roses - cute stuff!

Have to say that the above moto jacket makes me think of this gorgeous bed of roses by Dior...
 pretty luscious, but how about these...
 
 
 I want to be totally wrapped up in these luscious rose and flowers!

soft pink shell

 
Can't describe this summer knit cardigan with short sleeves as anything but a pink shell - actually perfect as a neutral to cover up a camisole or tank top that has thin straps and you want to hide your bra straps that are showing...
I actually like it with this striped pink scarf that has blush pink and white stripes and has to be worn with similar colors.  Worked out well!

a most curious salute...

Most people would deem this a most unusual salute for German soldiers… Taken outside a Paris cafĂ© on the Champs Elysees.  The officers seated are supposedly SS and the men standing and saluting are possibly Wehrmacht, but zooming in they all appear to be Wehrmarcht - although the SS did wear feldgrau as well and were identifiable by their collar pips and SS insignia and distinctive skull and crossbones motif on the cap.  

Actually, this foto pulled up during a search for “French pleated uniform skirt schoolgirl style” when I was reminiscing about my over-the-knee navy blue pleated skirt and short sleeved white blouse uniform I wore at my final High School in Australia.  Seriously…  Interesting…
Goodness, I was 17 when I wore such a skirt last, except the pleats were a little narrower…  And I was a history and WWII buff back then too!

Snowballs!

There’s something so provocative – in a foodporn way – about these big, fluffy, deliciously pink snowballs.  Bodacious coconut covered pink orbs with a marshmallow coating and cream-filled chocolate cake center…  So plump and slippery that they have to be flipped upside-down or the interior falls out as you bite into them.  And – they must definitely be eaten over a plate!  Even with my sweet tooth, one is usually enough.  Somehow, when I look at them, I’m not thinking “snowballs.”

Thinking of orchids, bougainvilleas and bananas

 
can't help but think of orchids or bougainvillea when I see this magenta / deep pink lace dress.  I can picture it with a pewter moto jacket or simply with a silver or gold belt and matching shoes...  Quite tasty!
 the lace on the dress is actually little flowers similar in shape to these orchids...
 see the pretty orchid shaped flowers?
and here it looks like it took a trip to the photographer's studio...
 
 the dress also reminds me of gorgeous purple bougainvillea in a tropical setting...
the label says "Vishes*Vishes*Vishes" - no, those are supposed to be W's actually...
 
"But what about the bananas?" you ask...
 yes fellas, there are purple bananas!
