TO - 11/15 - I've seen better days...

Genius is of small use to a woman who does not know how to do her hair.

~~Edith Wharton

I will take that one step further. I know how to do my hair.
It’s just sometimes, my hair don't pay attention and co-operate. There are days when I’m sure that it is trying to pay me back for something that I did...

The weather at the island is very moody… We can have a sunny day and some hours later lots of rain.
Today it rained a lot and since is weekend I chose a very casual and comfy look.
So do you notice something???
Yeah, that’s it… I’m wearing a hat!!!!
I had been talking in the thoughtful Sal’s blog about my love for hats and my lack of courage to wear them and as I was writing I was taking the decision to be brave and start to introduce them quickly.
But the wind was trying to take it out from me ;)

On the Island of Haze

brown boots - local store
black leggings - United Colours of Benetton
geometric printed tunic - La Redoute
black biker jacket - Stradivarius
purple scarf - local store
black hat - mainland store
lipstick - L'Oreal
perfume - Noa from Cacharel


  1. As always, it all looks great on you. And I love the hat. I love how you have two different accent colors going, it reminds me of the pianist's two hands, playing in harmony. You're really good at that :-)

  2. I did notice the hat, and the black. However, what really catches my eyes is the leather jacket. Yesssss!

    That is classic, and timeless.
    Good post darling,


    p.s. the hat on your profile is what attracted me along with other aspects of you, to your artistic blog.

    kisses again.

  3. Hi, I just reviewed your blog and
    I'm happy yo tell you that I'm awarding the secret agrden award :)

  4. lovely dress your have on--like the colors. love the touch of the leather jacket--fabulous!!!


  5. lol. i don't do my hair either. good thing it's long and straight.

    you do look fabulous on your hat and your boots. woohoo. love that purple scarf, too.

  6. adore purple. i not having a good day with the fire situation in so. cal.

  7. thanks!
    I lke your blog as well,
    I always saw you on other people's blog but never actually visit you :)

  8. Love your hat sis,looks great on you!

  9. I love that quote! And it has POURED with rain all day here. Only here is much uglier than your beautiful island and it's been freezing cold too. Rain is so miserable!

  10. My hair is also very uncooperative sometimes :(. It's so annoying! But I love how you're wearing the hat! Suits you so well.

  11. nice boots... :)

  12. I like your hat and how you matched with your signature colours.

    one thing.. you might want to try with your collage.. in picasa you can select the background to match your blog background colour instead of having it white. Then again you could be changing the colour in the future so it's really up to you. :)

  13. I just loved the first sentence: so true! and as an African, I live several bad hair days here and there!

    I like your tunic and the third photo the most.

    You are loving PICASA, aren't you? :)

    Beijo meu ♥,

    A Elite

  14. wow that skirt is so lovely! I love the pattern and the colours are so gorgeous, wonderful setting!

  15. Hats are useful friends on wacky hair days. I love your hat, Seeker. I hope to see you in it (and others) more!

  16. Hi Seeker!
    I have nominated you for a blog award. Come and grab it.
    your friend,
    Jesse Noe

  17. wow that pattern of your dress is amazing. But then again my favourite colour is purple (& black). Sounds like the weather on your island is very similar to the belgian weather :p


  18. It really suits you!! I like it a lot :)

  19. Está linda como sempre!
    Eu adoro chapéus, lenços e botas!
    Perfect look!

  20. mama im not mad at u haha! i had a lot of things to do but never forget to post something in my blog just to get my readers/visitors to read something. there are even days when i forget to post =D Blogsite at work is blocked/prohibited,too. :( huhuhu

    u take care mama. i just love your scarf! scarf in the philippines is in trend right now. :D

  21. loved the boots!!!!

    soooooooooooo much !

    and that scarf!

  22. This is such a different and great look for you. Love it.

    I cannot do hats, I have a big head and lots of hair. They never work on me. I envy those who can do them. You look great, as always!

  23. oh my god! i want to steal this jacket from you! it looks fantastic!

  24. i love these photo collages. And although I'm sure most women were taught how to put their hair up in her day, I'm betting she had a maid doing her hair daily! Not that I blame her, in-house stylist is up high on my fantasy list.

  25. OMG it is sooooo true..... thanks for the tip... usually when my hair insists in disobeying i end up punishing the rebel with a haircut so short that it wont let it move freely, period. unfortunately after 2 weeks i always realize that i did it to me ......... and that i'd have to live with it for another 2 years till it grows back. it sucks.

    lovely hat, this was the best solution for bad hair days.]


Thank you for visiting my humble blog! I read all your comments (even though I don't reply often) with great care. So keep them coming! Love to everyone :)
