Twirling like a crazy woman

I found this book under the stairs on the weekend, half read with a book mark in the middle. I'm not sure why I would have put it down(probably in the midst of studying last year) because it's quite entertaining. If you haven't read French Women Don't Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano then I would recommend it as the best non-diet diet book around.

I was going to head outside to take my photos today but we are sweltering in 34 degree weather so I am indoor bound.
I like a little breeze to show off the full circle of this skirt but a twirl I realised can suffice. Thank god for curtains so the neighbours can't see me twirling in the lounge room like a crazy woman.

Bag: Inherited
Skirt: I made it! Just do a search for 'circle skirt' and previous posts will come up
Singlet: H&M
Heels: Barkins
Belt: Far East Plaza, Singapore

I bought this book a couple of years ago but never got around to reading it.
I have to find it again and give it another go.

i love the suprise of yellow on the shoes.

I really like your shoes, and even more so because they're from Barkins!

This outfit has such a pretty summery 1950s feel. Love the bag.

Ohhh I love the circle skirt - so swishy! (not sure if that is a real word, will have to check later).
Thanks for the book recommendation, sounds interesting!
Hopefully this hot weather goes away soon, I know I'm looking forward to it!
Stay cool Lady M :)

I was thinking about that book yesterday - I remember skimming through it years ago and liking the philosophy. As a French woman trapped in an Australian woman's body, who is anti diet and also abhors doing a weekly shop at a supermarket, I think it's the book for me. Thanks for reminding me about it. BTW - Love your work.

Have been away from the blogging world for awhile and am catching up on all my favourites...have really missed lady melbourne. I read it for sheer pleasure as my interest in fashion is purely personal as it has nothing to do with my day job. Love it! Nicolexx
