ghetto colonial







I can scarcely believe I was wearing this only a few days ago, gloating about how winter in Perth is practically summer, but now, of course, the true nature of the season has come back to haunt me and I'm huddled up with my laptop wondering where the warm went. Sighhh. At least I can always pretend I'm somewhere equatorial in my mock-colonial room (complete with French provincial daybed and bamboo wall hangings - all I need are a few crystal decanters, a bison's head and a safari suit...). I have since rearranged the prints, I'll take some photos when the place is less of a shambles.

tank - willow
bikini top - isola by megan gale
pants - gorman
sandals - chloe
clutch - vintage
belt - reconstituted from straps from some broken shoes
necklace - karen walker
sunnies - pinched off a mate

I am in full suuport of your choice of decore! I'm trying to convince my boyfriend that we need a mounted Stag's head with huge antlers for above our bed...

Loving the ensemble too - those pants are a great find, as is the clutch! Snakeskin? Or eel?

Those pants are super cool, fabulous pattern. And I really like the idea of the bamboo wall hangings

Love it! We were thinking of doing a bamboo drop or bamboo screen as our headboard. I have a phobia of anything hanging above my bed (earthquakes etc). Of course your snakeskin clutch rocks!
