Box Full O'Honey


Ok, not Oprah giving away bees. Bees on my dress.

Blouse: Club Monaco (last worn here)
Dress: Dress: local designer from Dress Me Up (last worn here)
Belt: from H&M pants
Necklace: gift from China
Shoes: Fluevog Rivers | Yavari

Shiny dress is shiny!

I'm looking longingly at something. It looks like I should have a thought bubble over my head with ice cream, chocolate and Duran Duran in it.

My coworker called this print "Napoleonic". I didn't know that there was a connection between Napoleon and bees but I can see similarity.


I knew I had another pair of sandals, I just couldn't find them. I searched my house and finally found them under the bed.

Yay for finding shoes!

Speaking of bees and Duran Duran


  1. Eeee! Bees! I've recently had a bit of a bee/bug fanaticism. Maybe it's because the pest level this summer has been outrageous, or maybe just a new obsession. I love the dress. The print is so cool. I like the extra history lesson - so cool. I learned something new!

    Hooray for found shoes. Don't you love rediscovering something you already own?

  2. Buzzzzz - have you read "The Many Lives and Secret Sorrows of Josephine B" by Sandra Gulland? It's a great tale about Josephine Bonaparte and explains the bees and is an absolutely fascinating book.

  3. It's a fun dress, I like that the bees are subtle, but they are there! Very fun!

  4. When I saw the embroidered bees (beautiful, I might add)I actually thought of free masonry, but that Napoleonic link is just as good, I had no idea of it!

    PS: Duran Duran are amazing.

  5. Love that dress. I know about bees/Napoleon from "Antiques Roadshow"!

    Those shoes are fabulous. I've decided that I need more summery shoes from Fluevog. Ack! Although the Bay has a massive shoe sale on right now, so I'm going there after work. Shooooooes...

  6. I never find stuff that good under my bed :P That skirt is the bee's knees.

    Someone had to say it :P

  7. Bees! Who knew that tale about Napoleon? Not me, but I like it, and I like bees, the world needs its bees. And having them colonising your frock is wonderful.
    Like Lynne, I never find anything good under my bed (just dust and the odd tissue).
    So you are a Durannie, huh? Which one of those boys is in your thought bubble covered in ice cream and chocolate? Simon le Bonbon, or ALL of them?! xxx

  8. Buzz buzz! That's a great dress. Your finding (fab) shoes under the bed reminded me of when I returned from a year away abroad working and found a bag with a few pairs of shoes I'd forgotten about, at my Mum's house. So.Much.Joy. I thought I'd donated them!

    I have been following your blog for a while, and love your style. Have *finally* signed up to Google so can comment :-)
