Bonfire of the Vanities


Marilyn Monroe in NYC, 1957.

Last weekend I "went to the shops" for the first time in ages, I loathe actual physical shopping but I wanted to take a peek  in Cos, as whenever I spot the brand  in magazines I think I'm in  minimalist Calvin Klein heaven but whenever I look online  it looks like a warped psychiatrist has curated a  mash up of photographs on what his patients wore to have electric shock treatment, no really, have a look if you have nothing better to do, the models look like they've had their souls sucked out through their eyeballs.





I am online shopper, do not ever ask me to go out shopping with you, you will have exactly ten minutes to find the perfect outfit and by the ninth minute I'll be telling you that you look great in that bright purple tinsel trimmed bondage dress.

What about you?



A spot of online stalking came up trumps for me this week, the Kate Spade fun fur which I would have sold a kidney for last year is finally in my mitts and on my back.
I wore it on Guy Fawkes night (well, it's not actually till the 5th)
but bonfires and firework displays are raging like a spark in a box full of kindling. 
It's a behemoth to get in and out of but just what one needs round these parts as golden autumn is strangled by the deathly grip of Old Man Winter.


It's a quagmire of  leaves and soupy detritus  round here just now.

This was the state of me getting into the car after a foray to shoo away the fox family that has moved in at the bottom of the garden.

and this was me up to my ankles in mud at the bonfire.


My iphone pics didn't work, as you can see, so  below is one of the event purloined from the internet. Thank you Mr Stranger! 
I do love the hypnotic beauty of fire. 
There is nothing more primal than standing around a fire, bathing in its ancient light and listening to the crackling noise of wood splintering. 
It was so cold I could almost hear my breath tinkling in the night air. 



I came home and warmed my cockles on this peri peri chicken; three tablespoons of Tabasco, 4 chillies, lime, soy, ginger and garlic -a winter warmer if ever there was one.

How was your  weekend?

This just in from Dash, AH in the seminal Kate Spade fur!

  1. I swear I can smell woodsmoke.

    I need time to shop in real life, and don't like to do it unless I'm PREPARED. Except Old Navy and Target. For $12/tee I can do the impulse buy:).

  2. We're just getting weather cool enough to actually burn a fire in the fireplace, heaven! That looks like a fun event, those bonfires look huge.

    I almost never shop in person. I probably miss great deals and don't try things I might if I saw them in real life. The problem is the sensory overload. Too much stuff, too much music, too many people.

    I see COS on bloggers and love every piece. I wonder if they'll ever sell online to the US.

    I'll send you a pic of the crazy reverse tuxedo pants when they arrive. They're not scheduled to ship until mid-November.

  3. I know what you mean about the Cos website - I have seen a few pieces on Anh of 9to5Chic which look great but on the website they look terrible. Plus, the only way I can get my hands on it is to ask Swedish inlaws to order it for me, which seems like a lot of trouble. Is Cos any better in real life?

    Congrats on scoring the Kate Spade popover, it looks great on you. I saw it come up on Ebay last month and it sold for nearly $1000!!

    ps. My 2 yo son was peeking at the laptop screen and said "Cute!" when he spotted the pic of Marilyn Monroe. We had a good laugh over that!

  4. Tabitha I do most of my shopping on line, I don't really have much choice as I live in the middle of nowhere! But I find it can be rather dangerous after a few glasses of red.

    I am green with envy over your Kate Spade Fur I think I know where Kate Spades inspiration came from, I can't find the image on the internet so I am just off for a rummage in my library e mail to follow shortly...

      As that chicken has just about every ingredient that I love dearly (add vodka and we're nearly done, actually that gives me an idea for a killer cocktail...) save butter and cheese of course.

      I am just wondering, do folks rightly salute you as the sartorial star that you are at events such as these? Because they should.

  7. Ah - you gotta love Guy Fawkes - I wish we did that hear. Some of our smaller communities kind of combined it with Halloween and they burn tires in the middle of the road but does that count... hmm...

    I love the KS on you! I got my book clutch and I am in love!!!!!!!! I won't actually be able to use it till after Christmas, when I will open it up and day "Dad, you really shouldn't have!" and he will smile (BTW - am talking about my Dad not my husband, that would be creepy!)

    Yesterday i purged closet again. Stll could go slightly further. There were some things I put in the "I'll think about YOU later", some I will just pass on to cahrity! Today, I am working sadly on my job after only 3 hours of sleep last night... curse you stupid pumpkin spice latte that I drank too late in the day and then remembered why I don't drink coffee late in the day.. Oh and I made some chicken in the Breyonne style (according to Julia Child!) which was lovely!

    Love the mucky wellies and Anthropologie has some amazing fox christmas ornaments - perhaps you could pick some up for them in a spate of reconciliation?

  8. Tires? That must be stinking!

    Oh can you send me a pic of it? I am dying to get one but I'm wondering how shiny the vinyl layer looks?

    I was up at 3.00am last night, I have felt like death all day. Oh I don't know what Breyonne style is will google.

    Hubs didn't have wellies on - I think he's still in the shed.

  13. Can't bear to shop in stores anymore. I'll only go with my daughter, because she's very fast and decisive. Is this the same fur thing that Dani has? I have a long mink that was my mother's, and I keep thinking I should have it restyled into something fun and wearable, but I'm lazy and don't do it. Can you email me a photo of yours? OK, going to open my box of bras that arrived and try them on ~ yes, even do that online now.
    I hope it gets cold enough in LA soon for a fire (preferably in the fireplace of course). Supposedly the Santa Anna winds are returning this week, along with the heat.

    3. You're right about the temperature here. It does feel very cold at night here, except in the summer. It's the desert and the temp can drop 40 degrees by nightfall. Is faux fur lighter weight than real fur? And how did you score your popover?

  23. I've definitely become more of an online shopper in the last few years, but it seems so much easier. Mainly because the malls in my city area always so crowded, parking is impossible, and your size is ALWAYS gone. arrgh!

  24. I'm with you-I loathe shopping in the stores. I will avoid it at all costs. That's probably because everything is ugly, unoriginal and poorly made. The mega corporations have taken over the shopping landscape and the bottom line for the shareholders has taken precedence over the quality of the product. Even Manhattan has turned into a big mall with block after block of Gap,Abercrombie, et al. Grumble..Grumble
    Love that Audrey fur though. When I first saw that picture years ago, I wanted that delicious coat. Does yours smell of woodsmoke today?

  25. Tabitha, that chicken looks delicious. I agree with you on the internet shopping front. I only shop online and mostly buy only a few brands, as I know their sizing really well. I remember braving Oxford Street or King's Road and promising myself I would not go back, due to the crowds and the intensity of trying shop. I am a ten minute shopper as well x

  26. YES to the KS faux fur pullover, it's impossible to get on and off but don't you love it? I'm so happy you found one. Remember I bought mine final sale when they were selling off their samples and then I had online shopping remorse until it arrived.
    Of course then I was so happy, it's fabulous.
    I also love the smell of woodsmoke, we don't have a working fireplace but there are plenty in our neighbourhood, nothing better than the smell of it on a cold day.

  28. Am I the only one who still loves shopping off-line? Key to my enjoyment is, for one, I live just outside a very large city, so we have pretty much any kind of store one could want. Secondly, I am retired so I can go to the mall during the week, which is key. On the rare occasions I have to go on the weekends (to take my teenagers for something), it's hideous. I quite enjoy going down to the Houston Galleria, having a nice lunch at the Nordstrom Cafe, and then browsing the shops. Even if I don't buy anything, I like to touch & feel the clothes, and see how they're styled. I also enjoy people-watching!

    Regarding the fur jackets: have always loved that picture of Audrey. Tabitha's jacket looks adorable too. My dear mother had a mink jacket with a swing back, a huge investment for her in her single working girl days. She never wore it that I remember, since once she had us kids, there was very little dressing-up-and-going-out. When I was in my twenties or thirties, I was home visiting, and asked if I could have the jacket. SHE HAD GIVEN IT TO THE GOODWILL!!!!!! Without asking me if I wanted it! She was very sorry, but too late, it was long gone. I'm still kind of mad about that, at least 20 years later!

  29. Love woodsmoke and the bonfire . Love the K.S. popover and how you made it casual with the wellies.
    I prefer online shopping as I can't stand the crowds and I rely on my blog friends for reviews. They're smart cookies and haven't steered me wrong yet. In fact after seeing the white pencil skirt on you it's coming my way this week. Wouldn't that look great with the popover.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Tabitha, I read that book and the post title brought back all kinds of memories of the 80s excess ...

    You and I are the same kind of shopper. The last time I set foot in a store was likely 10 months ago just to return some things purchased online. I made a speedy walkaround of the store and couldn't wait to leave as soon as the refunds were settled.

    You got the KS fur popover! How do you manage to look so glam in all that muck? I gave up on that one but did manage to get a consolation. You'd hate it, it's metallic gold faux fur, lol. Oh and don't get too close to the bonfire (or a hot oven or hair dryer), faux fur will get warped by high heat.

    Speaking of books, I will have for tomorrow's post the dictionary clutch. Ditto WMM's thoughts, it's a love for me.

  32. Tabitha you look fabulous in that Kate Spade popover and I like how you've worn your Hunter boots with it...
    My only concern is how you get that woodsmoke smell out of it.
    We have a friend who hosts an annual Guy Fawkes bonfire and pot luck supper and I come home reeking of smoke...
    it's so bad that I need to jump in the shower and wash my hair before going to bed!

    I have very little online experience...Land's End is it so far.
    My body shape is very hard to fit so I must go to the shops and try on many things to get the one right item...and then often I'll buy in multiples.

    I have Mr. HB's mother's furs downstairs....an ermine jacket, a silver mink stole and a natural mink stole and I don't know what to do with them. Any thoughts?

  34. Love a good bonfire - and seeing the Wellies in action. Shopping on line vs in person depends on what I'm shopping for and my tolerance level. To me, craziness is the day after Thanksgiving here in November the shops open early and I can hardly believe the mobs of people who line up - people get hurt! I did that once years ago and that was enough. I was sad when Amazon.com started charging sales tax to Californians and I'd say shopping in general for me has decreased. A good thing, perhaps.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Much of what I wore when very young is back in fashion, but sadly it doesn't appeal to me, include fake fur. You look gorgeous in it, however, and it works amazingly well with your wellies. Perhaps it doesn't do to take fake fur too seriously. I, too, adore the smell of woodsmoke. I've considered selling up and moving to the wilds of Northumberland to escape the smoke ban of the local authorities here in Tyneside. I've yet to master online shopping, sadly. I want to touch things and try them on before committing and I'm such a cheapskate I don't want to pay postal charges for returns (if they are even allowed). I used to love shopping, but no more. I can still enjoy a browse through a thrift store if it's not too crammed full of stuff and people. I hate the bustle of modern shops, with loud music and acres of racks. I'm sure it's a deliberate strategy to drown out the thought process and drive a person to madly swipe up any old thing to escape! I'm sure your chicken was delicious, but I was startled by the photo after admiring the beautiful fire shots. I'm really glad to know it wasn't someone's body part that got charred...

  43. Wow, those bonfires look fierce, you are the warriors stock!
    I am mostly an online shopper and in store browser but I was actually thinking about it and even planning the post; I think am much less prone to fall for all kinds of marketing tricks when I shop in brick and mortars. I shop alone for myself, I can have companions and enjoy it if we are shopping for them. I do get tired and overwhelmed but I reward myself with food afterward. I would spend much much less if I was only shopping in stores, sometimes I think that's the way to go.

  44. In San Francisco, New York and London whenever things began to get dicey in the markets I would scoot off to my tailor(s). This is in the days before the internet, of course, in a time when men wore ties and drank at lunch. My San Francisco tailor kept an excellent bar and was a source of solace, thornproof and 100 proof. I would drink and paw the fabrics and inevitably acquire something I did not need. I have today a pair of thornproof trousers that require braces to be held up, their weight a thing of wonder and uselessness. You can force a wooden pencil through the fabric and it self heals. Amazing. But why? London is the only place I find interesting to shop and where I could doubtless find a replacement pair of thornproof trousers that self healed in the event of a pencil stabbing.

    1. My tailor(s) at Fort Bragg crafted me some thornproof trousers (with matching jacket) held in place by parachute harness and rucksack. Never tested fabric for wooden pencils but it held up nicely when being drug over coarse brush and rocky terrain. Whenever things began to get dicey on the drop zone, we'd scoot off to more hospitable surroundings.

I'm also incredibly lazy and it ends up sitting in the mudroom for days and then being too late to send back.

  46. Have remorse over not getting that KS popover. It's so fun and I love that you wore it to that fabulous bonfire!

    I'm sure you can guess that I love shopping both in store and online! Ha, I seem to be quite in the minority! But I have rules for the enjoyment of it. It needs to be only for 1-2 hours, I need to not be in any hurry, I like it only during the week when the shops and parking lots are empty, and I don't like to speak to the sales people. (Except my JC PS of course, as she's a riot.) Online shopping is for stalking popbacks or online-only items.
