To conclude, I didn’t get my coffee fix from the Afternoon High tea at Colony (who will choose coffee when there’s amazing blend of tea from Tea Bone Zen Mind?)
And I stare at my skirt. The buttery smooth leather, dyed in flawless coffee brown. It looked like a big flat coffee spill wrapped around the lower part of my body. And I feel like licking my skirt. Only genuine leather rubs smooth on the skin. Like butter spreading on bread. Faux leather will never be a match.
Call me an avid collector of leather clothing. I have a collection. Leather never goes out of trend. It dates back to the Romans where they use leather for clothing, shoes and for making shields and harnesses. Spotting a good buy for genuine leather wear is an opportunity not to be missed. And this piece of skirt from Zara is the latest purchase while I travelling in Spain few months ago.
Coffee colour is considered a neutral. (or else, how can Louise Vuittion signature bag goes with everything?) I’ve combined it several times with a cream top (just like coffee with milk), with similar warm cinnamon brown tones, or with black (like coffee in a black cup).
Colours and dressing combinations inspirations can be drawn from the surrounding. That’s how I match my clothes. If in doubt, go back to the basics and see how nature has naturally combined the colours for us. Such as blue with cream (colour of sea and sand), or green with brown( the colour of woods).
Here, I feel like I’m that cup of coffee from The Coffee Academïcs. My light platinum blonde hair tips resembles the tint of milk. My top and shoes like the saucer and the cup holding that aromatic brew of coffee coloured skirt. And maybe I can say that my bag is the spoon.
I’m that caffeine thirsty. Yearning for that cup again from The Coffee Academïcs.
So pardon me, while I go back to my bed and dream of Coffee Academïcs. It’s raining again in this January weather. Just nice to cosy up in my white fluffy blanket.
