Warm evening stroll

A little walk of a warm evening passing through one of my favorite dream house shopping areas, East Melbourne.

Jane Badler


You could easily be mistaken for thinking all we do is loan things out for music videos over here. Well this one is the glamorous Jane Badler singing whilst wearing William's (Metal Couture) chandelier earring and his articulated finger amour. The boys are rather easy on the eye too.

My family and other animals

Brothers Grim and the Blue Murders


This is the new video from those fiends the Brothers Grim, the song is called 'on the meter', you'd be a brave taxi driver to let these creatures in your cab. If you look out for the pink legs that's me!

Memento Mori

This is one of William's latest rings, it's set with a rutilated quartz which he hand carved a skull into the back of. It has MEMENTO MORI (Remember that thou shalt die) written in Latin around the band.  
These kind of rings were extremely popular right up to the beginning of the 20th century.
Here are some other examples of solemn messages which have been found on skull (or death's head) rings from the 15th and 16th centuries.

RESPICE FINEM SAPIENS ESTO (It is wise to contemplate the end)

MORI SAEPE COGITA (Think often of death)

COGITA (Think!)

This one is not strictly of this death's head vein but I like it,
CREDE ET VICISTI (Believe and thou hast conquered)

The Latin phrases used for love and marriage rings are really lovely too, I think I'll do another post on them later.
See more of William's jewellery HERE
There are plenty of pictures on the Metal Couture Facebook page too.

My Birthday

 It was my birthday last week and boy was I spoilt. WLG gave me some Bernard Willhelm X Camper skull buckle ankle boots (see HERE) ages ago because he couldn't wait until my actual birthday to hand them over!  
 WLG then took me out for afternoon tea at the Windsor which was delicious. I especially liked our camp waiter and his generous sparkling rosé distribution.
 Here are some more delightful gifts, banana earrings from Thea, green silk knickers from WLG, YSL pink lipstick from Josh.
In the afternoon Garth brought me some gorgeous yellow Calla lilies some Crémant de Bourgogne brut which we drank with apple and guava juice and sewed myself a leopard print silhouette dress to wear out to dinner. We supped on dumplings and sipped white wine in the evening and I was tucked up in bed before midnight. CHARMING

Wall Flowers

I walked past this glorious wall of flowers yesterday. How many different colour flowers can you get on one wall?
