Almost A List.

It's fair to say that I have had some A list invitations of late.
 I've been away from the blog viewing Future Beauty:
30 Years of Japanese Fashion.
Frocks from the Kyoto Costume Institute.
Taking its turn at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane.
It is as incredible as you would imagine.
If you have ever wrestled with a Vogue Issey Miyake sewing pattern in the 1990s,
you will know exactly what I mean.
I went on invitation from one of 50 of Queensland's Most Stylish people, lovely D from The Hat Box.
She wore a fabulous black feather sculptural headpiece from Hatmaker.
A.k.a Johnathon Ward.
I've also got this Show to look forward to:
 Starr's Wanderlust.
 If you have been paying attention, you will remember Starr taking some photographic inspiration
around the House of Flora.


Here's the painterly result:

I trotted out in Akira Isogawa to Future Beauty.
It's a challenging thing to wear.
But not as vexed as the number the Audi promotion girls had to wear in
that past photo.
I frankly paid a small fortune for a piece of embellished tulle.
And, I am not sorry. 
 The ubiquitous Harajuki girls were there to greet.

There was not a thing I wouldn't wear myself.


 Akira Isogawa has one lovely piece in the Show.
He also designed the huge chrysanthemum inspired feature wall.

 I've got my frock hanging up for Starr's Show this weekend.
I am sorted with an old H&M Lanvin number that
(miraculously) was available in my size at a H&M in Paris,
when I was en vancances a few years back.

 Stay B+++, or even A if you can get it.
And, get a long to Future Beauty.


  1. I can't often do h&m. they are often out of my size!
    Have a luffly weekend x

    1. I know. It's rude of H&M, no vanity sizing there - they couldn't care less. Lol.
      You have a lovely weekend, too. X

  2. This looks really great doll, what a fun event. Haven't been to H&M in ages :)) I hope you have a great weekend xx

    1. Dear Dolls
      You would LOVE the Japanese fashion exhibit!!!!! Xxx

  3. What a glamorous life you lead! So much to love here. Star's artwork, the tulle, the exhibition. Living the dream!

    1. Housewife, it takes one to know one. Starr's exhibition was truly amazing - over 60 paintings!! She has the tiniest hands in the world - that and her talent I don't know how she keeps it up!!! Xx
      That tulle is the most nonsensical frippery I have ever bought. And I love it!!!!

  4. Goodness me Flora. I feel quite the suburban housewife! I adore the Lanvin tulle thingo. Like I said, one must have a little of what one loves. The paintings are gorgeous and Starr must be one talented young

  5. Looks like a fabulous event, darling! I'm glad h&m ended up having your size! Keep in touch ;D Best, CD. ican'taffordmylifestyle
