A Wilder Shade of Nail

Today I'm wearing Maybelline Express Finish in Berry Boucle.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a pic of this before it started to chip.

I imagine this shade should be worn with a pretty floral dress and white lace fingerless gloves to a picnic at a rose garden, with a soundtrack of Ragamuffin Children, Rosy Tin Teacaddy & Ella Fitzgerald. There would also be the feeding of ducks at this picnic.

Wilder Wardrobe

 This is what I wore to the Island Bay School Fair. And then to stand on some random pole/log in.

Jandals ~ The Warehouse
Tights ~ Columbine
Dress ~ Bought from an outlet store in Otaki

Belt ~ Farmers (Gift)
Bag ~ Gift

 T-Shirt ~ Max (Gift)
Sunglasses ~ Op-Shopped
Yeah, I totally put my sunglasses on inside so I could get a pic of them. I'm a badass.

Necklace ~ Made by a friend of my Mama's. You maybe can't see very well here, but those are little Tiki on the medallions.

And now, for your viewing pleasure, a Special Guest!!!

Apa wore:

Hat ~ from a men's clothing store in Nelson
Sunglasses ~ The $2 Shop
T-Shirt ~ Evil Genius

Wilder Wardrobe

Skirt ~ Marks & Spencer (Op-shopped)
Shoes ~ From some Asian mini-mart type store in Napier

T-Shirt ~ Gift

Amber ring ~ Gift from my sister who bought it at a market in Poland
Earrings ~ Gift from another sister who bought them at an antique shop in Napier

Completely random coincidence that 2 of the items I am wearing here were purchased in Napier.

I wore this out for lunch with Apa, then to my friends' place to visit their brand new one day old beautiful baby girl.

Wilder & Tamer


~ Fish & Chips at Princess Bay while watching seals frolic.
~ Watching Poppies open.

~ Brand new babies.
~ Apa - the most wonderful man in the world.
~ Winning Pub Quizzes.


~ Wellington's wilder (& not in a good way) spring winds.
~ The boredom, ennui & loneliness of unemployment.
~ Young men who wear their jeans low so you can see their underpants, which are full of holes.

A Wilder Shade of Nail

I have a not so secret obsession with nail polish. I even paint nails occassionally at a monthly market stall. Here's what I'm wearing today:

That's Revlon's Amethyst Smoke. Pretty. And after 4 days it is only just barely starting to chip. That's a miracle for me. Usually my nails look a mess the day after a manicure.
