I’m currently phasing into a state of disgustingly cheesy bliss in my personal life and and therefore right now when the sky is pink, it leaves me charmed with all sorts of things in a way that I might not have been beforehand.  Damn these rose-tinted heightened feelings!

I’m enjoying fluttering around in my vintage chiffon pink night cape immensely.  I’m feeling like there is not enough white lace garments in the world that can satisfy my love for the stuff.  The combination of some ribbons, diamond-cut perspex heels of those Viktor & Rolf shoes is magic.  The cut out white petals on this Clare Tough dress is deeply enticing. 

I can’t seem to find anything to genuinely scathe about which is a tad worrying but if you’re after unabashed enthusiasm, then there’s pots of it, within this one post alone which probably makes this the cheesiest, gut-wrenchingly, barf-worthy post ever. 

However bliss never lasts forever so be patient.  Allow me to harp on in a silly manner about fluttering chiffon and white lace here before the edge returns…

    There’s nothing like frolicking cheerfulness, don’t be apologetic.

    I implore you not to be so apologogetic about expressing your happiness. What’s so damn wonderful about misery and cynicism?
    I’m glad for you, whatever the souce of your joy may be.

    (um… please pardon the typo in my last comment.)

    She’s english don’t you know! Surely one cannot be a true Brit without possessing those qualities at least in some abundance, no matter how major or minor!

  9. Ah, a happy Susie is always good! If it’s down to a special someone, we owe them a thank you. And white lace love is always good, only (and here’s where I’m going to rain on it) that Clare Tough dress might look better with its midriff in, as opposed to being cutout. But it’s nothing some layering won’t solve.

    Clare Tough has a penchant for creating dresses with the midriff missing…unfortunate

  11. Or wait, is the statement about personal bliss an April Fool’s joke? I’m hoping not..
    DJM: I saw the one on your site. I wonder if the girl has a stomach fetish.

    I’m going to have another look around the vintage shop the next time I’m there. They always have night things (slips & bedcoats.) I’ll have to see if they have capes as well b/c it looks lovely on you.
