Monochrome Monday

Hey all, its a monochrome start to the week, now i know you might think from the flavour of the blog so far that i rarely do black, monochrome or for that matter a slightly (ever so slightly) rock edge - well i am here to prove you wrong - just for a bit of bloody mindedness - it is after all Monday!  have a very good week - mad busy one again and rather looking forward to it xx


Now who doesn't love a good old British bowler - its all so very borrowed from the boys ..







Frankie is back Wednesday Francesca xx

PS by popular request the gloves are Nina Peter x

  1. WOow AND this Black § White look confers you a kind of "Victorian GLAMazon" aura, that your long gloves (strongly) tend to electrify I must add !!!

  28. This is a great ensemble and I particularly like the white 'Victorian' dress. All the images are beautiful, but my favourite is the fourth one: perfect shot and pose.

    The jeans I'm wearing in my last post are Vanessa Bruno's skinny. In my opinion, the fabric is a little bit to 'heavy', but it's great during cold days...Thanks for the nice comment!

  29. Thanks NJaPD and not just for the fab comment but for the headsup on the jean too - i know what you mean about heavy but hey not such a bad thing mid brit winter!! xx
