Nicki Chapman

Standard

Back in the spring I was rather taken by the outfit that presenter Nicki Chapman wore. Here it is:

Well, I was watching Celebrity Antiques Road Trip yesterday and she popped up again wearing the same outfit:

I found a reference online to the outfit which Nicki said was by Hobbs. She is quite a stylish lady. My type of girl.

Have fun, but try not to make a mess,

Hoorah for Trump

Standard

I have to confess to being a big fan of Donald Trump and thought that he’d win. The world is changing and for the better. Brexit, Trump, bring it on.

Consider:

Several years of the awful Hilary Clinton and her trouser suits, or “pant suits” in the US. My god, how awful! That woman has no taste and for that reason alone should not be in power.

Ivanka Trump – Mmm… The daughter, Gorgeous! Hopefully we’ll be seeing a bit more of her. I did like that little pale blue dress:

Nice!

Next to go will be Angela Merkel. She hasn’t noticed that the people are fed up with the way things are and her lack of elegance…

I rest my case,

Have fun (I am),

Chiffon.

 

New acquisitions

Standard

I have done some shopping! Online and in vintage shops. I just bought these 3 skirts from Closet and they are truly wonderful. You will recall the post about box pleated skirts…

Pleated Skirt

I am sooo looking forward to photographing these next week. I am actually wearing the blue and pink one as I write this. I also acquired a few vintage mini-dresses, a lovely sweater (also wearing now) and a mid-length black petticoat. These skirts don’t need a petticoat to give them body but I am wearing one anyway! The black one is just the right length.

All for now and see you next week,

Chiffon.

 

Number 6: Les Culottes de Charlotte – Cathy Ménard

Standard

The main reason that I love this film is that Cathy wears the most gorgeous red satin dress in an earlier scene. It’s a pity there isn’t more of it but she does wear other nice clothes as the film progresses. We don’t see nearly enough of the “Culottes” either but there are some nice suspender shots.
