Happy April Fools!

No prank here, but I thought I'd say it anyway. Hey, least it's better than "A pinch and a punch for the first of the month, no-returns-full-stop-ow! You can't do that, I said NO RETURNS, FULL STOP! Skank."

Also, because I've been horribly neglectful and busy-ful, I shall post two spreads, both which completely contradict each other. The first, "Bow to a Classic", celebrates my love for all things classy, elegant and lady-like with no less than thirteen items featuring, funnily enough, a bow.

The second, "Museum of Modern Belts", was inspired both by the statement belt and the fact that the hilarious acronym of Museum of Modern Art "MoMA" was stuck in my head and this seemed the only way I could get it out. Well, it worked. MoMB is nowhere near as catchy. But, thank goodness, is still just as sexy.

xx my lovers!
