black & blue

The snood got some action two days after I bought it. Favouritism at its very best. I very nearly typed 'nepotism' but that's a worrying thought right there. Related to great big wooly holes that I favour??!!? Actually.......nah, I kid ;)

I realised that not only is the snood a multi-wearable item of clothing (as a thick-knit neck scarf/as a snood/as a pillow/as an electric blanket for your ears) but that I'm turning the world into a snood-hood, one person at a time.

I bought Stuart one, Charlie has my guarantee I'll buy him one....who's next?

I also got Stuart to take a close-up of my hands as I'm wearing this cool nailpolish that Erika sent me (NYC Big Apple Red Creme - thank you hun :) and that I mixed with a magenta shade from Modelista. The rings make up part of my normal body armour.

Hey Anika, how've you been! So fantastic seeing fashion looks which are actually relevant to our current season lol! I've been dressing head to toe black too, seems like everything I own that is warm is black haha.

Those DIY boots look great, you definately made a pair of rubi shoes increase in value!

I absolutely love the snood! I also cant help but notice that you're gonna snood that handsome lad Charlie... I'm assuming you did not discuss colour with him, may I suggest grey or something that goes compliments gold...

The snood looks so good on you, get more to match other colours, the name is so smilemaking, snood, snood... snood.
