My Birthday (cont.) - British in Burberry Prorsum



Loved the packaging, clever & simple

Chamoose!



Am still enjoying the beautiful & fragrant oriental lillies...Two days after my birthday, I had another birthday dinner, with my in-laws. Earlier in the day I caught up with friends and had a delicious chamoose (chocolate mousse drink dusted with chai - yum!), and received a cute necklace from my friends (who are currently traveling Mongolia for 3 weeks, so jealous!).

Love the decor of the restaurant we went to for dinner, my badly taken picture shows the hanging lights that are actually upside-down teacups, each one different from the other...Subconsciously (or not?) inspired by the 'British' theme, I wore quite a bit of Burberry Prorsum (quintessentially British, no?) that night (not usually a fan of head-to-toe in one label, but am I excused when they are all different seasons/collections? Pretty please?).

PS. I have recently joined Twitter to see what it is all about...not sure how long I'll last, but for now, you can follow me on brigadeirocc.




Pockets!

I did not actually wear the Burberry Prorsum SS2009 necklace as shown above, as it arrived the day after, but I wanted to try it out, so included it in these shots...

  39. You look like you're ready to join those ladies on the runway! Lovely!! I love your bag so much! It's such a perfect touch to the outfit! xxoxoxo

  40. The jacket - the shoes - the bag - flawless! And I am sad that I don't live in Australia because I don't know where to find chamoose and I think I can't live without trying it because it looks delicious :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you so much everyone for such sweet comments!

    Haha, the chamoose seems to have garnered quite some interest! I'm afraid it is my friend's 'invention' (or so I think), he owns a brilliant little coffee place in the city I live in, and ingredient-wise it doesn't seem too hard to make...

    lynn - love that tiered/ruffled outfit too! *sigh* LOVE Burberry Prorsum! Thank goodness for Christopher Bailey! :)

    xx to you all!
