How are youse?
You will all sleep better knowing that my lurgy is gone and my sinuses are clear. I am a picture of glowing health.
You will also be glad to know that Lovenest 1.0 is go - my fella and I have been approved to rent a nice terrace place in a hip inner city suburb. Regular readers are welcome to come and stay. You supply the wine, we'll supply the cheese.
My weekend was fairly quiet, we have had our share of big weekends. The big thing I did on Sunday morning was a 10km fun run, the first of the Spring into Shape series. Melbourne was showing off, weather wise. It was a glorious day, but perhaps a touch hot for a run. I managed to run my very worst 10km time in, like, forever.
I suppose I was due one of them. At least I got out there. And I had a nice yap with other people on the course.
Today I am going to talk a little bit about couture. Since we have been awash with red carpet events; the Emmys and Brownlows. I have a passing interest in style, insofar as I wear clothes, and I like them to look good on me. I am not one so much for fashion (it's Passe here in the inner north of Melb), but I may embrace one or two elements...
I am also not-reed-thin, and it is good to see more normal looking women on the red carpets.
We have to talk about Lena.
Lena! Listen! I am all for our telly screens being filled with interesting, quirky, non-classically beautiful women; I am one of them! It is long overdue.
But girl, I don't think this dress would've looked good on anyone. The hair is very coffee with girlfriends.
I am aware that there is a whole "fuck flattering" movement in the fatshion scene, but I think it is a bunch of people cutting off their nose to spite their face.
Work it! This is how...
Here Kelly does it well.... she rocks a boob, a little waist and a statement colour (though not Purple hair, unfortunately)
Mindy (Iveneverheardofyou) Kaling....BAM! Perfection
Christina is the Queen of BAM....
My favourite frock of the other ladies at the Emmys.... Michelle Dockery. It was a little controversial and got some "ew" from those in the know, but I liked it. A few more accessories perhaps?
Also loved Claire Danes..
We also need to talk, Amanda Peet...
Brynne at the Brownlow....You are getting there! Well done you! Is it a Herve Leger?
Whose frock did you like?
What would you have put Lena Dunham in?
Have a good week! x
