On a topic close to my heart recently: to taupe, or not-to-taupe? Are you afraid of the big bad brown shade? I think I am. Danish magazine Costume are the latest I’ve seen to be banging on about it, but what if browny shades just aren’t very you? They’re not very me, that I can tell you.

Until then, I’m opting instead for a light-tan, slightly-camel-ish, slightly matte gold. It’s the best you’ll get from me:

(Wow, my hand looks a bit crippled at that angle, and my thumb too! Something extremely odd going on with this picture…) In other beauty-related news, today sees the release of Les Trompe L’Oeils de Chanel in Selfridges in London! False tattoos for all and sundry! £49 for 55 tattoos. Time for a transfer of funds, non? (Ho ho ho…)

I’m not sure I’d take them to the off-duty model level, instead rocking a 5-year-old-discovering-temporary-tattoo look, but they have super potential. I’m off now to a friend’s for dinner, the weekend begins! Hurrah!

  1. I love the Chanel colour! I can’t quite see yours but I’m sure it’s nice 🙂
    I’ve been wearing a colour by Chi Chi called “high heeled housewife” that’s kind of taupe-ish for years now. This guy used to pay me out saying “you’ve got skin coloured nails!!?” haha.
