turquoise ruffles

today i went to the theatre! 
it was wonderful watching oscar wilde's the importance of being earnest. it had an unusual all-male ensemble, which put the focus on the witty wordplay that is wilde's literary interface of choice, and exemplified the shallowness and superficiality of the society he so sought to satirize. 

and in the words of one andy warhol...
speaking of which, i also visited the kenneth tyler exhibition of prints from some of my favorite artists including david hockney and jasper johns!!! it was amazing. but i digress.
 i suppose my high collar was a subconscious mimicry of the victorian era it was set in...HAHA.
close up of the blouse! this is its maiden trip out of the shopping bag after MONTHS... its satin with a chiffon overlay and has a keyhole adorned with ruffles and 3 cute buttons! its zippered at the back. but what i really like is its turquoise color! soft azure that isn't jarring on the eyes. 
and my green/cream/grey/metal bag kinda matched the turquoise/grey ensemble i was wearing...which i thought was quite nice. sometimes you never know when a bag's color might come in handy! and how it looks like without horrid photo booth...
my patience is wearing thin... thank you for enduring this deluge!

oooh i like that blouse you've got there. the high collar is nice :)

the importance of being earnest? is that the one with colin firth in it? or perhaps i'm thinking of something else. but i distinctly remember watching like..half of that movie and he was in it.... ah can't remember!

I just love the way you put outfits together. Always sophisticated and very feminine without looking too contrived and well-- old fashioned. :-)


I heart David Hockney although I have never had the chance to see his art up-close.. :-) So, lucky you!
