awwww jeeeez

Is it really shallow for me to write about how much I'm loving creamy lace right now? It seems like everything I purchase of late is lacey and creamy...its an addiction. I think my latent desire to dress like I'm in Picnic at Hanging Rock is manifesting itself in the purchase of creamy lacey things. This happened to me last year with grey marle. I wound up with a wardrobe of grey marle things that I couldn't wear together without looking like I was off for a jog and it made getting dressed a bit difficult.

Now that I think about it, I tend to do this with food and music too. For example, right now, I am only listening to Patrick Wolf. This has been going on for about four days. I know that other music is great but for some reason I will only listen to Patrick Wolf. Ditto the All In Ones from Sweet Mother's Kitchen. Every weekend for about six months I had at least one of these. I know other food is good. But I guess I'm just determined in my taste. I don't know.

Anyway. My new cream lace thing is the same fabric as the cream lace thing pictured below. However, as I tend to have some kind of personality glitch that results in this kind of rash layby, my cream lace thing is a shapeless t shirt dress that is basically see through. And about $200. Which is kind of a lot considering I probably could have got me some cream lace and made a similarly shapeless cream lace thing but there was about a 2% chance of that ever happening and THAT IS WHY WE BUY THINGS LIKE THIS.


  1. I'm not sure I agree with the tag 'rash purchases' as most of my purchases of late have involved lace, more black than cream mind you, though I've been eyeing up a few cream and white numbers lately pour la plage et la picnic..... I bought lace bike pants for christ's sake, and they are damn fine. xx
