Allons​ Enfants!

I know, my clothing today has nothing to do with the title and I´m the first to admit it. I actually tried – very hard – to ignore July 14th, 2017 to the best of my abilities.

I did not want to feel the void that the passing of the only French born relative I had in the Americas had recently left in me. We had always celebrated Bastille Day together. For most of the day, I succeeded at dismissing it. Until I couldn’t …

The celebration across the street is still in full swing, even as we speak. Living in a very particular part of town, it is happy and cheerful; peppered with the occasional shout … ¨Vive La France¨.

It does hurt. I no longer have her by my side singing ¨The Marsaillaise¨ today, but then again her values, her dignity and those of our beloved France continue to live on in my heart, in my mind and in my deepest HOPES. Spread them around:

Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité!

Because of Yesterdays

ghee-winter-huntShe stepped outside,  just for a walk,

then she remembered well,

what it was like to love a time that left her standing there.ghee-eva-cocktail-iv

Yet it turned out it was a must to think in loving terms,

upon the person she once was; and reasons for this day.

The slightly asymmetrical circle skirt has a wide high waist that molds to the mid torso´s contours. The armed body is applier based. There is a set of tights and a scarf available for it. The Russian style winter hat is reflected on the lapel of the jacket.  The handbag echoes the skirt and body´s fabric. Boots and socks are also available as well as is a scarf and earrings (not shown).   This is definitely a fun winter outfit to put together!

The best part of this is that it is another Ghee store wide hunt. You will find Christmas Muffins hidden around the store. In 11 of them you will find co-ordinating items that make up a chic and cosy outfit to keep you warm and stylish this winter, said  Beatrice Serendipity, one of the  two designers, alongside Warm Clarity.

Each muffin is for sale for just 10L, apart from the boots, which are 25L – so your whole outfit, including accessories, will cost just 125L!  Check the Ghee Winter Hunt Guide to see all of the items – there is a hint in each one for the next item too, to give you a helping hand.
