out & about

as much as i love shopping, i find it a drag to shop for people (as i get easily distracted) so it is taking me forever to shop for christmas presents. but i did drag myself out and about last saturday. the weather was too glorious to stay home and sit in my pants eating nacho chips (?)

i love marc jacobs goodies. mj thermals!

then it's my favourite jeans of the moment: cheap monday black denim. *breathe in*

smelling of hermes un jardin en mediterranee and listening to coldplay's "lovers in japan" on youtube. i am so loving the song, and loving the scent. i got it as a free sample when i bought my tie.

then it's a vintage looking tshirt from h&m from about 5 years ago.

then it's a cherry red duffle coat from gucci cruise 2008

then it's coldplay's "viva la vida". i hear jerusalem bells are ringing, roman cavalry choirs are singing

then it's my paul smith cloth sneakers which i can literally fly in

feeling upbeat and fresh smelling i am ready to rule the world as coldplay rings in my head.

and i sure hope my mood is more upbeat than the slightly glum looking d00o00d on the runway:


please excuse my once in a while narcissism!
