Note To Self







Loving this look from Dries Van Noten at the moment. That dip dyed jacket has my name all over it, along with the orange nails. {Note to self, stop buying chairs you no longer have any room for, and buy v.cool denim jacket instead!}




I thought I'd also show you the latest reason why I don't have a Dries Van Noten dip dyed jacket right now. This image above is of a painting I picked up in an auction this week. It's by Lilly Napangardi, an Aboriginal artist from the Northern Territory, and it's titled Hail Storm. So mesmerised by it, can't wait to have it home with me.


Hope everyone's had a lovely week and didn't get slammed too hard by the blogger festival of maintenance {yeah, good one}. Thanks heaps for coming by this week, and a massive smooch to these cool people for spreading the fun....

and though this isn't usually my style......this was not so cool!! Take a look here and then HERE, at a blog called Mashmoom. If you're trying to spot the difference, you won't need long. There is none. I get that we all like the same stuff, that's one of the coolest things about blogging - but do we really write exactly the same words - nah not usually. Copy + Paste = Bad Blogger. In my opinion. End of rant.

{{post edit: have just read the couple of comments over at the blog above, you girls are so cool}} {{Wow. Post, post edit: have noticed your comments have been deleted}}

OK, this whole scene gets funnier by the minute. Apart from a daily deletion of the comments this blogger is getting from readers here, she has now changed 3 words in her post. Now you may be able to spot the difference, but you'll have to turn your head on the side and squint your left eye to do so.

Sarah B said...

What a fantastic work of art, you lucky thing! Very exciting purchase.
Boo to that other blogger - very naughty!

Amazing, amazing painting - I love it. Dig the dip-dyed denim and the chunky double watch effort too.

And that other blogger is pretty darn cheeky...

Melinda said...

Hi Jules. I love the painting.

And very uncool about that other blogger. I mean, I steal pictures from your fabulous site all the time to save in my inspiration files, but I always give you plenty of credit when I use any on my blog.

On the bright side, they do say imitation is the best form of flattery (or something like that).

Melinda said...

The painting is wonderful, Jules. How big is it?

And those people are scoundrels. I will tell them so.

Woah! I can't believe someone would copy & paste an entire post from someone else's blog!! What is the point of having a blog if you don't put your own flavour on there? Sad that some people just can't find a style of their own...
