Style Rambling: Lady In Grey

Although, not quite the twelve days of Christmas yet it has been a glorious few weeks bringing in the new year, the gathering of wonderful friends and family, and even being a witness to a co-worker's wedding engagement before the holiday.

However, apart from enchanting fairytale-esque events and gourmet indulgences there was that thing of trying to get on track. And, since I really don't like being inundated with a massive attack to my inbox I was the one doing check-in periodically, (not an awful amount of times) to take care of the important mails.

Then, there was the time I thought my agenda planner was lost and spent a good two hours one day in search of it, only to find it placed in a side pocket of my carryall. Must have been in the frantic packing mode that day, but all was good because I backed everything up digitally. But, to be honest, sometimes you simply need to write things down! Do you rely on technology for everything? Of course we all do for the most part of our lives. I will say that I still enjoy writing a few things on that fibrous substance called "paper" occasionally.

Also, I never thought I'd be so happy for my crazy fashion ribbon on my luggage until this woman tried to snatch my bag. Right, there's not too many people who have custom vintage ribbon on their luggage like mine! What an experience ...

Minor digressions aside, here's a work outfit that I wore just before all of the marvellous madness of Christmas holiday. I have a ton of feathers: ostrich, peacock, and others, so I decided to use the large peacock feather as a brooch-style accessory. Rather, a fresh take on my vintage-mod personal style interpretation.

  3. great look I love the shirt :) we tie special ties on our luggage too - usually ribbon but lately it's old scarves that are s bit too worn.
    I'm a paper girl when it cones to my work planner too- I need my diary and paper off duty electronic copies just aren't good enough

  7. Hi sweetie, what a wonderful style combination. Love the colour pallet and the androgyny of the buttoned up shirt and blazer contrasted with the beautifully feminine pleated skirt. Your feather broach is also a great touch. :)

    Take care and have lovely weekend,

  12. Madison, I can't believe that woman tried to snatch your luggage! That's too crazy! Thank God for that ribbon! What a nightmare! Glad you found your tech piece. I still write things down. I use the little note taker on my phone, but still rely on to do it post it notes and a calendar (hahaha that's my post for Monday!).  I love your skirt Madison. the belt is exquisite and how awesome is your brooch! my mom has some peacock earrings. i wonder if she'll be mad if I take them and try to make a brooch. hahahaha have a great weekend doll!

  30. Love this outfit...it is gorgeous...perfect!! I think you look ravishing! I put ribbons on my luggage too & have also had people try to fake like it was there's, haha. Smart putting a unique thing on there, luggage can get so damaged these days. I hope you've had a wonderful weekend doll....Happy Sunday!! xox

  31. I love this outfit a lot! I love the jacket and the delicate peacock feather as a centre-piece. I agree with you I love a good old notebook especially for scribbling down ideas with a cup of tea or hot chocolate. Sometimes my fingers need a break from all that is digital.

  48. I hate trying to fight people for luggage, especially when they grab mine. Usually they don't - a bright pink case with a Toy Story alien as a tag stands out pretty loudly, but our blue one gets taken a lot on accident and we have to chase it down
