Mad Hatter's Club

Must've been feeling a bit Guns N' Roses...



With the celebratory catawampus winding down like an elderly jack-in-the-box leftover from the fades of childhood memory, we meant for a subdued and only mildly scandalous New Year’s Eve. A slight difference from the model of fulsome traditions, our intimate dinner party--fully fledged in the company of my love child camera, tippy top hats, and cocktails--came in with a whisper and went out with a bang. And as I stare to the horizon of 2009 and to all the rock’n possibilities sauntering forward with the New Year… a smile washes over.

And into this vast internet superhighway, warmest wishes go out to The Minx and Fashionably Early, both ever lovely (!!!)… thank you for my blog awards.



Colin Stuart ankle boots. Tripp studded gloves and shredded skinnies. Vintage (faux) caplet. Nordstrom-Savvy scarf.

Thank you honey for welcoming me back! I sure did miss all you lovely ladies.

Oh, Bella! You look AMAZING! Sorry, but I had to shout that :)
If I saw you in real life I would stare in awe at your style - I wouldn't be able to help myself :)You look so cool yet natural...and your hat, I adore it! I've loved top hats since I was a child - the dark romance of them :)

Happy New Year darling! I'm slowly returning to blog land and I was so happy when I logged on and saw your comment - your blog is one of the very first I've been intending to visit today.

BTW, the gunners were a guilty teenage pleasure of mine. I quite fancied Axl in his bike shorts! :) xxx

Eelie said…
Can a girl not catch a breath when reading a post? I could write so much looking at your images but its just difficult to now where to begin. I'm sure this word has lost some of its meaning now but you and your outfits are just gorgeous and they always are.

That last picture of you is just beautiful. Again that word probably doesn't resonate as highly as it has done. Honestly beautiful i say.
