Gold Rush


J Crew metallic Etta pumps, Charlotte Olympia clutch

"Golden years, gold whoo whoo whoo."
You too will be humming David Bowie's Golden years non stop after reading this post.

Hands up, you caught me, I am having an affair with Midas at the moment. My task  of  rebuilding my wardrobe with sensible basics has led me to breaking point:gold, glinting, shiny gold!
At the moment I'd fight a magpie for a gold button.


Maxmara coat
(unbelted who cares if I die of frostbite)

If our clothes tell us and others who we are then I am  rampaging Norsewoman  'Ingot The Shiny.'  

What are your clothes saying about you just now?



Did you know that three million Americans, 'preppers" are preparing for the end of the world and have been squirrelling away a year's supply of food and water?
I just  looked in the cupboard, I have one tin of tuna.
It doesn't augur well for Armageddon does it?
I'll have to  hope that  the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse remember to bring me a Chinese.

Meanwhile back in Blighty we throw away over 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes each year, costing us £12 billion pounds.
I buy fresh food every three days and am proud to say I have never thrown out any food in my life, who are these wastrels?

Any plans for Armageddon?

  1. I hate waste; it's almost an obsession, but it's not a bad one. The best way to avoid it is to plan a little, and to be a bit creative. I blame all those "ready meals", which are bad for you healthwise, pocket-wise and morally. Rant over. Nuff said. Carry on.

    1. Columnist - I just don't understand it all, if we have leftovers we eat them the next day or the next two days, and I buy just enough for us to eat so nothing ever goes out of date either, I think wasted food is my bete noir too.

  4. I recently watched a television show about a small group of Australians who have moved to an isolated town and have been preparing for December 21st 2012 for almost a decade.

    Did you watch that fabulous series about British chef Arthur Potts Dawson opening up a Coop/ supermarket in London? He was against wasting anything and I was shocked about the statistics of food wastage, not just in the UK but all over the world.

    LOVE the coat xx

  5. I've recently resuscitated my gold costume jewellery from the early 90's. Gold went out for so long. Wore a bracelet that was 20 years old yesterday, and all the school mums were commenting on it. They no doubt would have commented even more if I wore the matching (very large, clip on) earrings. Not necessarily in such a positive way though, I would think. Not everything comes back..... and thank God for that.

    If it's the end of the world what's the point hording tins, won't they be destroyed too? Don't get it. if the end of the world was nigh I'd eat my body weight in cake and drink as much champagne as I could and pass on to the next world in a blissful coma of sugar and booze .

  9. Oh how I long to wear a pair of gold shoes this winter upon reading this post Tabitha. Perhaps a chap would look better without the heel and the satin toe though. Or would that make it a ballet slipper?!....watch me as I allonge, arabesque and glissade down the Kings Road in my gold pumps. X Paul

    3. Hold the phone. Sorry to break in Paul but I have to add that I would pay a hefty sum to see a photo of Tabitha in her punk? New Wave? gear and I wouldn't be the only one (although she might say the same about the possibility of seeing me in full Goth regalia, including veil).

      While here I will just note that it appears that the featured Squirrelee is planning on doing some actual cooking down there, I was rather impressed by the inclusion of coconut milk...And loving you in that coat--afraid I am not rocking my MM camel coat at all in comparison! Talk about a sack of potatoes! :(

    4. LIP: You had a veil? Me too! Oh I wish I had pics from those days, I don't know how I had the nerve to get on the bus in a veil and pheasant feathers. I used to change at the last minute, shout "bye" from the hallway and run like the clappers down the driveway. I would occasionally get caught and be forced inside to change.

  10. Well the preppers have cheered me considerably, since there is only something ironical about stockpiling for "the end of the world". My plan will be to have just enough liquor to get me through the day. I don't expect God would want me lugging all of the other stuff in and setting it up!

    Love those pumps. Are they comfortable (you know my obsession with comfort!) As you know, I am with you on the gold. I have a lovely golden dress that those shoes were meant for, though I do already have a pair of gold shoes and how many does one need? I have some spectacular trousers from Elie Tahari that no longer fit and may need to come to you and those shoes. They would look spectacular on you!

    2. Tabitha, my daughter & I just took ourselves out to dinner and for a spin through the shops tonight. I noted two different pairs of shiny golden jeans, plus numerous gold dolman-sleeve cowl neck sweaters. I think you have to be very very young to wear those jeans. The sweaters are ok. Me, I recently got a slim-fitting metallic gold cardigan, with golden moonstone buttons. I wore it Saturday night with my flippy-hem, black lace skirt (underlined in beige, which makes it somewhat less versatile than I expected). And pointy toed, black suede pumps with 4" heels. Thought I looked rather good, but I am SO not used to wearing heels any more. Luckily it was to a wine dinner, so I didn't have to stand up too much!

  11. I love the shape of those gold shoes as much as I do their colour and the design of that clutch is ingenious. I understand disaster planning - we should all have food, water, blankets, torches, etc. (Not that I do, other than a well stocked pantry and some windy-up flashlights). But if the world is actually ending, what need is there for food? Some things just aren't worth thinking about, like trying to understand insanity. As to food wastage, it is down to ignorance about cooking. However, my sister-in-law has a friend in Sydney who has one meal from a roast and throws out everything left that same night. She believes she saving her family from food poisoning and no amount of reasoning will change her mind. On the other hand, her husband (a lawyer with several books bringing in royalties)is convinced that it costs really very little difference to eat out rather than to eat in, so she doesn't cook much at home anyhow.

  13. Armageddon. Let's see: couple cartons Marlboro Red, Bookers via IV drip with a soda and twist chaser (for the Vit. C, necessary for survival), perhaps a spliff and a boff with Mr. Wonderful. If the Survivalists are going to eat 10 years worth of canned beans while crammed 3 to a bunk in an underground bunker, then I'm gonna light up like a Louisiana BBQ smoker. So when they kick me out to forage on my own in the wasteland above, I'll just toss my mink across my shoulders and whisk up the ladder in my gold satin sandals. No Tallulah in a Lifeboat for me - I'm hangin' onto my bling and going down in a shiny selfish drunken flourish. But that's just me.

    3. Q of CUP,
      Armageddon is so next year and apparently has you distracted from your usual wise counsel (i.e.wrist-tabs now removed from MM coat). Were you really going to let Madame Tabs sexy champagne flute ankles rest atop such heavy heels?!?! Since I don't see a sled dog team nor hear of her taking up powerlifting, I was expecting you to send her to a reputable cobbler to fix this.

  14. Gorgeous coat and shoes, a bit of bling never hurt ;) I better get moving on my Armageddon gear or I'll be drinking tea, honey, soy sauce and eating shortbread forever!!! I'd rather take my chances with the blast outside than hoard all that, I'll sit in my shiny shoes as the fireworks go up!! They can hide in their bunkers...I'll go out fighting and quite shiny....x

  15. Throwing away food makes me crazy too. I hate to think about what happens to it all when I'm at a buffet or a catered event where the hostess makes certain a shortage of food is not remotely possible.

    I have not prepared for the end, at least not food wise.

    Truthfully I thought Cinderella when I saw the pic of you with the gold pumps.

  16. shortly after 9/11, my (then) firm distributed "go bags." This was a plastic sack containing a small power bar, an anti-shock blanket (read: 2-foot square of tinfoil), a pint bottle of water, card of 6 tylenol, and a tiny pocket flashlight. These materials were meant to keep one alive until help arrived. My secretary and I stared at one another glumly. A day or two later, I brought in my own Go Bag: cashmere shawl, Hennessy XO (I wouldn't leave Paradis around the office), apc's from last trip to London, Enfer candle. Kept the water from the firm's bag. Disclosure: shawl was old and about to be tossed anyway. Secretary smiled, made her own version. Word got around, as it does. Sad ending: rebukes from Powers That Were for Not Showing Firm Spirit.

  19. The clutch and pumps are gorgeous, Tabs!

    It is really very sad to hear about all the food being thrown out, especially with so many people in the world going to bed hungry at night. With my large family of healthy eaters nothing goes to waste at our house, thankfully.

  21. I love the gold with the camel and the unbelted coat is very ET!
    Long ago I kept a small cupboard stocked with plague-flu supplies like canned foods and pedialyte, tylenol and bottled water. My son referred to it as the Zombie Apocalypse Cupboard! I was so anxious back then. I feel sorry for these prepper people, why aren't they just enjoying their lives and using their energy to help others right now rather than hoarding cans like maniacs.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Never quite understood the stockpiler-why would you want to survive Armageddon?
    I believe there are many regions where some kind of stockpiling of supplies is necessity. In parts of the American Heartland tornadoes run through with the frequency of cross town buses and having extra supplies-especially on a farm-is just smart. But then there are some hee-haws who want to get on tv so they act ridiculous and get a reality show (hence the "Doomsday Preppers" et al).

    Full disclosure: I have ten gallons on water lined up in my hallway at the moment. But they are result of sloth rather than stockpiling because they are left over from Hurricane Sandy and I just havent got rid of them yet. I've only tripped over them once so far so I still have time....

    I do understand stockpiling gold however. Thats a whole different story.

  23. GOLDEN CHILD Tabs, when Armageddon comes I will "beam up" transport to your doorstep, take-away and Maker's bourbon in hand, asking to be at the end in another pair from your shoe cupboard. (Even if I have to stuff the toes - and no, I won't be asking for the Fudd boots, plenty of those on own over here.)
    Cracked up by WMM and WFF as usual!
    Note, that Nat Geo telly has a whole series on the "Preppers" over here. IMO watching it would be scarier than reading Revelation and/or contemplating the Apocalypse. Apparently one of their die-hards shot his own fingers off while teaching a son to protect the store bunker.

I have a similar pair to your pumps that I wore to my daughter's wedding, but they've got a very high heel, and I wanted some gold feet for everyday.
    OK, I'm still sane evidently.

  28. You're making me want those gold shoes when what I need is a nice, sensible pair of camel work pumps with a low heel. Gold is my metal of choice, so I'm glad we're seeing more of it in the teens than we did in the aughts.

    Waste drives me insane, but the BF won't eat leftovers. I think it's some sort of mental rebellion; he had very little growing up and ate whatever he could afford or find, so now that he's a doctor he refuses leftovers and generic cereal (I'm like, "But the ingredients are EXACTLY THE SAME!"). If I've gotten thicker through the middle since we moved in together it's because I try to eat all the freaking leftovers before they go bad.

But then, how often am I dragged kicking and screaming to the party, only to become an enthusiastic convert...? Quite often, indeed- just ask K. As to the leftover issue, when you realize you're not going to eat them, my motto is, when in doubt, throw it out. Unless your building up your home-made stash of penicillin.

    Where we live it's possible to have a storm that cuts all power and it could take days to have it restored, especially to the country house. We specifically have woodburning fireplaces and gas stoves for that purpose, as well as a fully-stocked pantry, candles and kerosene lanterns. It's happened once already since I've moved to Canada. Go through it once and you will likely be more inclined to prepare for the next time.

    2. I live on the Texas Gulf coast, so we might also have a storm, well, hurricane; power could be lost for days, but it won't likely be cold, it'll be beastly hot & humid with no air conditioning. So in hurricane season, we make sure to have lots of batteries and gas for the generator, which will power the refrigerator, a small tv, a lamp, and a fan. And we have a couple of Coleman lanterns, which are pretty bright. Oh, and a manual can opener!

    3. I am with Jill Ann, not literally, but in as much as I live in a hot area that is cyclone prone. We do have our 'cyclone supplies', since we are 1600km from our state's capital city and the roads do get cut off if we get lots of rain.

      As far as what my clothes say about me today: They say that it was 44 degrees C. and that is quite warm for November.

      PS - I don't understand what people have against leftovers. Do you like cooking every day, or something?

  45. I'm not preparing for anything because I believe in a pre-tribulation rapture. I'm on the first bus out of town. My ticket was bought and paid for thousands of years ago. I have no plans to sit around as the world crumbles. On the contrary, I'll be skipping down streets of gold. Gold is good. So is your coat.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The combination of camel and gold on you is perfection. Like JulieStyles said, it's very Bond girl (something I'm busy writing about right now!!). I'm also gravitating towards gold these days - I just dusted off an old Tiffany gold necklace that I haven't worn in 10 years and I have always had a soft spot for golden shoes. On my wedding day, I wore J. Crew strappy high heeled sandals in pale gold leather.

    My husband also cannot stand leftovers. I used to put leftovers in containers but they inevitably get thrown out, so I try to make exactly enough food at each meal so there's no wastage.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  47. An acquaintance, a former Mormon, disclosed that the Church directs its members to have at least 2 years' worth of food, water, guns & amo, supplies, and funds (gold is best) on hand, in their homes, so they can make it through the post-Rapture. These 1 year Preppers got nothing on the Mormons!!!

    Your story of the "preppers" reminded me of my best friend's Mother in the year 1999. In preparation for the Y2K calamity (*yawn*) she bought about 3,000 litres of UHT milk. Their family didn't have fresh milk for about 5 years *laughs*.

  59. I have a friend who, if ever a disaster strikes, will never ever go hungry for 2 years. Her kitchen is packed so full that I'd dug out petrified sweets, cookies, veggies...etc.

    The coat looks amazing on you. So does the heels. Gold is a great neutral. Striking enough to stand out in the crowd but neutral too so it can be paired with most colors.
