Collar and Protect Me

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…

  4. ps. sorry for got to add that the song by susanna and the magical orchestra on your playlist is one of the most beautiful songs ive heard in a long time. your playlists always musically assault my ears in the best way possible.

  6. this collage is mad! love it…
    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;)

  7. 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!

  8. 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! 🙂

  9. 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.

  10. *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. 🙂

  11. 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!

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

  13. 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.

  14. Hiya, I’m really glad I have found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossip and internet stuff and this is actually frustrating. A good blog with exciting content, this is what I need. Thanks for making this web-site, and I will be visiting again. Do you do newsletters? I Cant find it.
