Florals For Spring Fashion?
Miranda Priestly might disagree, but the surefire way to say “Adios” to winter and “OLE'” to spring fashion, by adding vibrant joyful florals to the wardrobe.And if you’re not privy to the quote , what kind of fashionista are you? The doctor has your prescription ready and It’s time you took your dose of The devil Wears Prada.
Although I like Pinks and Pastels I’m not a girly girl by any means.What with all those fussy prissy outfits adorned with the customary floral prints “hmm” they are definitely not my usual bag.So when the Fame and Partners maxi jumpsuit crossed my path, I became locked in its predatory stare. Frozen by its beauty my eyes caressed and respected its fiber a bold rose print with delicate cross-over straps radiating a tough-vibe.Romance devoid of tedious nature to which Spring Floras are known.It’s what puerile florals dream of becoming!
What I love most about this piece is its hybrid nature.Masquerading as a Maxidress whilst betraying its sophistication as a Jumpsuit The dual nature of the garment is apparent through its fit and flare silhouette. Truly stunning!
This makes it the perfect piece for a spring picnic.But what good is the baby without the bathwater so by sheer happenstance I also found the perfect location.I location for lovers to be stung with the tip of cupids arrow.
I promise you romance will be in the air.
But do tell me more oh wise one, what is this “Como House” you speak of? Well, dear readers, Como House is one of Melbourne’s historical sites.Built in the mid-1800’s by Edward Eyre Williams this was to be a love nest deriving its name from an Italian Lake “Como” where Ed first proposed to his beloved Jess awwww Ed you ole romantic!The estate has since been converted int o a trustee site so we can all enjoy the feeling of Romance.It still holds the original Mansion Gardens and the Horse stables(converted into a restaurant)with which you can dine.It is situated in south Yarra , Victoria.
Being an architecture Aficionado I can’t get enough of these types of structures.Como House also holds architectural significance as perhaps Victoria’s most intact and complete examples of a 19th-century estate mansion.
Want to visit?
Como House is open to the public by guided tour on selected dates.
The menu is thought out and crafted with a passion for excellence.Captivating both the sweet and savory creatures that dwell within us.The organic components of the cuisine are cultivated on the grounds via the organic kitchen garden, mere footsteps from the Chef’s bench.I’m sure I spied some foul laying their eggs for the people to enjoy.
As a disclaimer I take no responsibility for your diet should you encounter the sweets counter :p
Tastebud teasing wagon wheels designed to overload your delicate pleasure centers, musk sticks, giant meringue clouds & bountiful pastries .” umm was that my diet knocking at the door?hello, what diet?!”
Picnic & Play
The Stables of Como can provide gourmet picnic & hamper service, complete with rugs, crockery and a blanket to keep you cozy (additional items can be hired on the day).The hampers on offer pack an abundance of menu items.It was a hard mission to complete but equally hard to stop.
Later as I lay within the warm embrace of the sunshine basking like a cat on a sill.I thought “So this is what life is about, sharing food with my beloved.The feeling I’d discovered a secret gem encased within the majestic gardens, whilst in the wake of awe-inspiring architecture”.Content that I could finally let myself go, a chance to escape the grind.
The sun looked upon me with a smile and the fragrance of spring caressed the outer edges of my soft face , delicately forming a smile.I inhale the comforting scent emanating from deep from within the acres of manicured gardens.
