Betty Boop Sexy fragrance

Betty Boop Sexy fragrance has her sitting on a cake, dresses in a little red dress, while the scent is all about persimmon, pomegranate, dark plum, lotus flower, black orchid, red rose, patchouli, amber crystal, sandalwood, vanilla and skin musk.  Sounds simply gorgeous!

Betty Boop Party fragrance

Party on!  Betty Boop Party fragrance that promises a blend of bergamot, grapefruit and mandarin orange in its top notes, a heart of star jasmine, magnolia and orchid and sheer woods and musk at its base.  Ms Boop like I've never seen her...

Caribbean Joe For Her is so tiki!

the bamboo shaped bottle of Caribbean Joe For Her totally appeals to my sense of tiki!  What does it smell like?  I believe it's all about ruby red grapefruit, mandarin orange, lemon blossom, pink osmanthus, sunset hibiscus, juicy nectarine, creamy sandalwood, orris and musk...  Hmmm... Could be quite tasty!

loving this black and white striped bateau top dress

I'm totally loving the nautical chic of this black and white striped bateau top dress that is sooo Coco Chanel...
 Meg Ryan in her bateau top with Kevin Kline in awesome film "French Kiss."
and the lady who started it all, Coco Chanel, who borrowed the striped jersey shirts from French sailors for their simple chic...  Great idea!

How John Wayne would dress if he was a French It Girl?

Lucky magazine online says this is how John Wayne would dress if he was a French "It Girl!"  (hint: the bandana) Tickled... ;-D

and to accompany the hunt for the perfect monk shoe, the sounds of Gregorian chants as sung for Enigma:

Inspired by: Audrey Tautou in grey trench coat for Da Vinci Code

There's something quite terrific about that grey trench coat that Audrey Tautou wore as a Parisian detective in the film adaptation of author Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code, starring opposite Tom Hanks as shown in these shots.  Very stylish indeed! 

I even love the schoolgirl simplicity of her navy blue skirt, simple buttondown white shirt and black cardigan - very classic!  Jean Reno at far right is fun to watch as well, as is Tom Hanks - all great actors.

how to wear a white moto vest

 with a short flared skirt and t-shirt
 with a short romper or shorts
 with an A-line flared dress
 with a calf-length nautical striped dress or skirt
 with a fitted midi dress
 with a long gathered or pleated skirt

The possibilities are endless...

or has the eagle landed?  An interesting shirt...

Coral cuties shiny as lip gloss!

These glossy coral colored rainboots from JuJu are as slick as lipbalm and suddenly I want to slather on a lipgloss in a tasty apricot shade!  Bring on the rain...
and the lipgloss: Rosebud Mocha Rose Lip Gloss (tastes like honey and chocolate!)

Plaid and polka dots

pleased about how this burgundy and cream polka dot scarf goes with these navy, red and cream tartan or plaid pants and this burgundy or wine coloured messenger bag or satchel.  Just waiting for things to cool down a little - won't be long now.  This year is just breezing past...

You Spin Me Round

and a little taste of Brit 80's pop band Dead or Alive with their megahit "You Spin Me Round" - " spin me right 'round, baby right 'round, like a record baby, right round, round round..."

Crochet style ivory knit top

this gorgeous ivory crochet style knitted top was won at auction for a few dollars and it seems like it'll be a versatile throw-over a tank top or sleeveless garment for extra coverage...  It's extremely lightweight so it could be worn on a cooler day in summer that's not too muggy or high humidity.  Should be great with black and white combos I'm thinking of lately...

Skulls and crossbones, oh my...

Skulls, with or without crossbones, have been in fashion for quite some time but I'm a bit slow to catch on as they're a little too piratey for my over-40 taste...  Here I have a skull top, that's more like a long knit tunic, that I have teamed with a skulls and crossbones scarf that also features crowns.  Eye-patch optional...

Loving black, white and silver combos

 Here's a combo I put together in black, white and silver, utilizing a silver grey mesh tunic, a high-low nautical striped dress that serves as a long tunic top with skinny jeans, and a spotted black and white scarf that I made myself.
and here's a closer look at the hi-lo dress...

How to wear relaxed fit cargo style camo pants with neon

I love how these camouflage pants are teamed with neon pumps and a colorful neon t-shirt.  I've always wanted a pair of cargo style ripstop camouflage pants, complete with six pockets, since I was a teenager and am trying to gain inspiration from how women are wearing them these days.  This is a pretty good job with relaxed fit camo pants though, blazing the trail for the rest of us...

This blog will probably be a post in progress and I will be adding to it as more inspirations come in...

letting out my inner kitten

I got these pink metallic kitten heel slides at a discount shoe store in Costa Mesa, California, which took returns (they were very hard faux leather) but only gave store credit.  I had earlier returned two pairs in the same style, one metallic lime green and the other a pretty baby blue but decided to keep these pink ones.  Well as it turns out, the metallic finish began to peal off without any provocation, wear that is...  So, I decided to peal off all the metallic finish - except for the heels - and drew on a leopard design using permanent markers and viola!  Very kittenish pink leopard slides...  I ended up selling them on eBay to a gal in Australia a couple of years ago...  I know!!! She gave rave reviews too...  Meoooow

love me lilac

 crushing on these lilac jelly sandals...
fresh lilac blooms... gorgeous!

pistachio passions

 my sneakers ended up looking like pistachios - all the colors of the delectable nut!
$40 jeans that were marked down to $10 looked like pale mint online actually turned out to look like a very verdant pistachio green!  No complaints here - they match the "pistachio sneakers!"
yummy pistachios shelled...
colorful pistachios on a tree... (pistachios in the wild!)

Coveting: coral multi sneakers
