…or brains are sexy, so says The Gardener.
I thought that was quite funny because we all read don’t we but it is nice to talk about what’s on our current reading lists. Plus for some reason I thought it was the perfect topic with which to share my new Diane Freis dress purchased recently. Not sure why I thought dress = books but when inspiration knocks on the door who am I not to answer it’s call?!
Diane Freis moved to Hong Kong from the States in 1973 and started creating her signature dresses that to me despite the date are relevant today. Think Cavalli or past Gucci collections. Anyhow her new stuff in my opinion doesn’ have the edge that the stuff from the 1970s does so that’s why I chose this dress. Mother Melbourne is not a fan at all and asked if it was possible to send it back and get a refund(!)
It’s a little bit too cool to wear it in winter but you should see more of it in the warmer months ahead.
On my reading list at the moment is:
A Dead Hand: A Crime in Calcutta, Paul Theroux
The Sitters, Alex Miller
Shoestring Chic, Kerrie Hess
Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, Tom Franklin (just finished this and it is fantastic! Gripping as it slowly unfolds, I’d recommend it for reading on the train or as a holiday read)
Tucked In, Meredith Gaston (this is really sweet, it’s an illustrated adult book. It could be for any age really but as someone who LOVES to sleep I could relate to just about every page from this gorgeous book)
