After a grand disappearing act, I’m happy to report that I managed to apparate to my writing desk again. Some more blog posts will be trickling in shortly…

Today’s post, shot at the outside of the Palazzo della Pilotta in Parma, is all about contrasts. I have an visceral fondness for contrasts in my outfits as I love how clashing components have a way of rapping each other over the knuckles lightly: a synchronised effort contributing to a beautifully balanced result. These are today’s contrasts:

Oversized versus skinny. Pastel on top in contrast with black at the bottom. Soft cosy knitwear offset by leather-look edginess. Cold light blue hues complemented by the warm tones of the golden hour. A dove’s noble poop that missed us by a meter as opposed to a sudden shower that whipped us with unrelenting violence. (In revenge both the poop and the shower were refused access to my blog.)

I guess those are enough contrasts for one post? Or do you, for the sake of contrast, disagree?

    Dear Bold Bliss,

    Thank you. I bought them boots. They are spectacular. People look at me again. Except for Ronnie. Well, Ronnie, you asshole, let me tell you what is going to happen to guys who are untrue.

    ‘You keep lyin’ when you oughta be truthin’?’
    ‘You keep playing where you shouldn’t be playing?’

    Do you, Ronnie? Won’t you come back to me? No? Then remember Nancy’s song:

    ‘These boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do
    One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you’

    So, Ronny, make up your mind. And otherwise watch out for my Hudson Mirar Ankle Boots.

      Priscilla, love,

      You’re right, I’m an asshole. My God, how I long to come back to our love nest. But you know, I’m married. And I’ve got kids. They want me to stay with them. And I want to be a good father, you know. But once every fortnight we could go back to our room in the Sun Palace Hotel. That would be great, especially when you would wear those dazzling boots.

      Your ever-loving Ronnie

      Your time is up, Ronnie-dove. Prepare for the worst. My boots can’t wait to run over you.

      ‘Are you ready, boots?
      Start walkin’ ‘
