Fashionable Friday : Hello, Hugh. Faux Insouciance is Futile

{Fashion and fluffballs : Au Casuale and Fluffy Chops Cuddles © Shell-Sherree}

Well, hello, Hugh.  Bless your fuzzy, gorgeous, warm, huge exuberant heart for coming to town. When you make your entrance on stage, I'll be a gooey mess of smittendom on the inside.  If you're taking requests, I can see you 'Singin' in the Rain' in a very fetching way. Excuse me while I fan myself.

On the outside, however, can I possibly wear an air of nonchalance? Insouciance? Will an off-the-shoulder top signal the sartorial equivalent of an off-the-cuff remark?

When the concert comes, there's a good chance I'll be as cool as a blow-torched cucumber and channelling my Bay City Roller fan days, minus the tartan but still most inelegant.  In the meantime, however, let us practise our best Parisian shrug and count the hours.  Limitless TimTams and lamingtons will fuel our endeavours, floating by on golden trays powered by energy harnessed from Hugh's dazzling smile.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

  1. Yes! Wear the off-the-shoulder top. If it doesn't catch Hugh's eye it will catch the eye of another man with excellent taste.

  2. So what did you wear? And how was our Hugh? Did he spot you among the multitude and have eyes only for you? (Say yes, because I'll believe it.)

    1. I'd say Yes, dear Alexa, but our Hugh only has eyes for his Deborra Lee. He's so gorgeous! :)

      It was steamy and a matinee, so in the end I trotted out my Audrey-esque cream shift dress. Not off the shoulders but it was cool !

      Petrea, Alexa, it was one of those magic days ~ dream park, complimentary ticket upgrade just after we sat down and of course ... a couple of hours of Hugh. He's everything I imagined and more. I'm a happy girl. :) Oh, and he did Singin' in the Rain ! Heh!

    1. Good question, PA ! My apologies ~ the said Hugh is of the Australian variety, being 'Jackman'. :) It was pretty amazing sitting in the audience having the real deal right there. He is every bit as gorgeous as he seems and then some.

Merci, grazie, thank you for joining our conversation lounge. Your smile lights up the room. Even more beautifully than our crystal chandelier. x
