Margot Tenenbaum. Episode 2.
By catching up on the blog I meant REALLY catch up, specially the whole Margot series.
And this particular outfit was a lot of fun cause I got to wear my beloved super long coat finally on the blog. OH OH OH I have to share this little anecdote while we're on the coat.

Me: *whilst shuffling through a multitude of coats all extra large and trying on a dozen a  
       in between*      

Friend: Uhh, Esther, why do you want to look like a detective?

And after she said that, I really felt like saying - "Oh, you mean really Sherlock Holmes-y?" Which I didn't though cause I remained baffled and slightly amused at the question that procuring a coat two to three sizes too big would generate the idea that one was trying to look like a detective. I guess that mostly happens when you belong to 'the little people' category HAHA. Anyhoo, so Margot would probably wear this number to one of those extravagant soirees with her Dad maybe and her signature stunned/unaffected look. We have a little problem though because my hair has gotten a little too long and not pin-straight enough so apologies on that front. 

Please note:
1. I would straight up wear this too and wouldn't really care if some stranger on the road  
    took me for a little detective impostor yeah?
2. I doubt Margot would pose like this for a picture (please refer to third picture)
3. I intend to grow my hair again so when we do run out of time for this series maybe I'll 
    start another series on Suzy Bishop of Moonrise Kingdom fame.
4. Point No.3 just turned out to sound a little crazy considering how short my hair still is.

Greetings earthlings.
So tell me, what did I miss? Speaking of miss, I know MY mid-section is missing. Uhh it got lost in our oh-so-wide whirlpool of a web so I'm leaving now to retrieve it and will be back in a jiffy. I kid. For the life of me I don't have a thing to say or an excuse even - with regard to the frequent absence here on the blog except YES I HAVE BEEN MEANING to post an entry but it all just boils down to procrastinating about it and zilch! Nothing. Not that it has anything to do with no inspiration, fashion wise. And while we're on that -  to sort of push the fact that the subject mentioned is totally relevant I have developed a certain preference for the color black. Black? Me? Who knew. Let's see what other shenanigans this new year will bring for me and all of you.

And as late as it may be with the holidays behind us, (and me trying to catch up with everything here on the blog) this was our tree *dismembered only just yesterday* that Mum and I had put up *with Daddybear giving a nod here and there while we were at it* and pretty nostalgic about it cause it's a new tree in a new house that we've made our home over only a short period of time. Christmas was different this time, away from the hills and pretty much spent most of it missing our old tree stacked away somewhere in the dark.

Happy 2013.
Have a good day kids!
