Another day and the boyf ain't back yet and the tripod has taken its legs for walkies so it's another scramble photo collage. 

Somebody commented that there was a definite increase in the amount of black in my outfits.  I'm not really one of those people who need to be sheathed in black all the time and I'm certainly not one of those people that think that by dressing in 'chic', 'timeless' and 'classic' black (I don't even think the colour black actually asked for those attributes to be bestowed upon it…), somehow denotes a higher grade in fashion kudos. Oh and currently having spent the night rewatching one of my favourite ATV Canto dramas "I Have a Date with Spring", I'm having a fetish with gross stage costumes in the brightest, yellow, blue, red and whtie (only a select number of people will get that reference…), so black is at this nanosecond quite far from the mind.  However, I have come to find that on days where the moo-ness level is on a real high, turning to black for some quick-fix moo-ness shelter is quite handy.

Well, this Jean Pierre Branganza jacket is my moo-ness defence mechanism.  Restorative, protective and productive – I'm forced to use infomercial-type trio phrases here.  Restores my happy spirits, forgetting that I'm feeling moo and instead conscious of this hulking beaut of a jacket on my back.  Protects me from people on the street who might detect my moo-ness as it puts up a shield of slightly distressed, shiny and hard leather and a huge collar of furriness.  Produces a feeling of "Yes I can!" (did ya gag a little there?), even if it is just walking up and down the high street wearing this and my creeper boots, feeling like I've accomplished something just by doing the local shop in Morrisons (a harder task than I had imagined given that shopping bags now imbalance me rendering me unable to walk…).

Restorative, Protective, Productive…  JPB gives me RPP…. oh the fun in meaningful acronyms…

    at the mo we are in the middle of our fashion week in Athens, not sure if we’re shaping any trends, but if you feel like it do drop by my blog and check it out;)

  15. Jozee says:

    That jacket is lovely. I’ve been on the hunt for a really huge collared leather jacket with the perfect fit–this second part is all the problem. SIGH!

  16. Jozee says:

    Haha! I clicked on the link you had to the JPB website and it said bandwidth exceeded! Methinks you are to blame, Mz Bubble. :3

  17. allegra says:

    hey hey

  18. missmilki says:

    The collage thing works great – looks really cool too. Fabulous jacket – I wish i had one of those for my moo days. And the tights are fab too! šŸ™‚

  19. Yes that collage is uber cool. I know how the “moos” can make dressing a pain, but you look fab as usual.

  20. frances says:

    Moooo, I am so jealous of that jacket.

  21. Caro says:

    I absolutely adore your laced tights!

  22. Hannah says:

    I know you weren’t going for effect with the photo technique, but it is very cool nonetheless. I do love your crazy brights, but everything you do is interesting – I haven’t noticed any regression. The jacket, in particular, is striking.

  23. Winnie says:

    Who needs a tripod when these collaged pics turned out so well? Those creepers look great on you!

  24. Libby says:

    very edgy, once again i like the way you took the picture. Also i love the shoes!
    Libby ~

  25. I just cannot get enough of those tights…they’re just too, too perfect šŸ˜‰

  26. You do not look moo! You always look fab!!

  27. KD says:

    *Gasp* *of delight* I love this! What an amazing jacket – how I need some RPP stuff in my wardrobe. I love the lace-change of the creepers. šŸ™‚

  28. PiaStan says:

    LOVE the scrambled photos! they are almost like illustrations… they look great! YOU look great x

  29. Hineahi says:

    I wanted to buy a leather jacket and a fur jacket this winter (it’s autumn here) but now that I see you wearing both trends together I’m intrigued. Is that a high collar on there? High fur collars remind me of the futuristic forties in ‘Blade Runner’. Too bad Jean Pierre Branganza’s site is not working right now- the bandwidth has been exceeded!

  30. I love the new photography. I feel it’s indicative of your current physical state…slightly broken. Hope you repair yourself soon. R x

  31. Eeeli says:

    OMg i was just thinking of I have a date with spring i use to love dat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they should do a remake!!

  32. the scrambled photo collage idea is just super creative! I really love it!
    and this outfit is just sooo great! the jacket is perfection! <3

  33. cassiopeia says:

    love it šŸ˜€ i think black is seeping into everyone’s wardrobe more and more… have you been the rodchenko and popova at the tate modern? they designed some rad stage costumes…

  34. DJM says:

    Loving the jacket! I am still on the hunt for something suitably fluffy for my neck that isn’t feathers.
    What’s the interesting story attached to it? You mentioned it in some post or another.

  35. miyoshi says:

    great outfit!! i love it.. i’m going to use that for inspiration, hope you don’t mind šŸ™‚

  36. hkShoeGeek says:

    Proud to be one of the people who “got” the ATV stage-costume reference! Takes true talent to find costume inspiration from them…

  37. Mackenzie says:

    As if your outfit was not fantastic enough, the collage of pictures combining it all together blows my mind.

  38. J3welz says:

    Where can I get tights like that?!?! =D

  39. Bailey says:
