"...and now here they are! The most daredevil group of daffy drivers to ever whirl their wheels in the WACKY RACES. Competing for the title of worlds wackiest racer. The cars are approaching the starting line. First, is the Turbo Terrific driven by Peter Perfect. Next is Rufus Ruffcut and Sawtooth in the Buzzwagon. Maneuvering for position is the Army Surplus Special. Right behind is the Ant Hill Mob in their Bullet Proof Bomb. Then there's ingenious inventor Pat Pending in his Convert-A-Car. Oh! Here's the lovely Penelope Pitstop, the glamour gal of the gas pedal. Next we have the Bouldermobile with the Slag Brothers, Rock & Gravel. Lurching along is the Creepy Coupe with the Gruesome Twosome, and right on their tail is the Red Max. And there's the Arkansas Chug-A-Bug with Luke & Blubber Bear. Sneaking along last is that Mean Machine with those double dealing do-badders Dick Dastardly and his sidekick, Muttley."

Travel, in all its forms, is taking over as the print for summer 2012. Prada showcased 50's kitsch Cadillacs in candy colours in their latest collection with....

My bad got distracted by The Apprentice and can't remember the rest of that sentence. Goddamn you Alan Sugar. A side theme to retro prints if I may: I could cheerfully punch each and every contestant on that programme, and yet I can't stop watching it. Ach! that's the power of TV for you kid's...

So back to the business in hand CARS CARS AND MORE CARS.
Here in my car
I feel safest of all
I can lock all my doors
It's the only way to live
in cars...

Once again I used my 'eagle-bargain-eye' and spotted this Prada inspired falda for a fraction of the cost in my designer shop of choice, Primarni

Casually modelling said skirt in Amsterdam. As you do

The midi length is especially 'a la mode' and compliments the 1950's vibe perfectly. (woah! actually starting to sound serious/like I know what I'm talking about using sentences like that. Trust me, I probably don't)
But I do know what I like, and I like what I know.
Annnnd now I'm talking in riddles like the Cheshire Cat. ACH!

In sum; if it's good enough for Carey Mulligan, I'm on board (minus the chipmunk. Although it does make for a unique outfit)

Music wise I am mostly listening to Rudimental - 'Feel the love' propaaa summa chooon innit. Makes me want to be in a field with a nice cold cider. and possibly a wok. And also anything by Delilah, her voice is amazing and I love her dip dyed hair.

I'll be right here
If you can find the time
Just be sincere.
