Karen has sucked Alexa into the baby nurturing obsession! Karen is already trying to subtly trying to inoculate me to the idea of her keeping that little baby African Grey, she thinks she being sly getting Lexi involved and oohing and awing over it white toes. Apparently that is some kind of significant genetic marker, it looks like alopecia to me. Her teeny tiny Quaker that she rescued is still hanging in there, it siblings are twice as large but Karen tells me that is due to the parents feeding them more frequently than she does..
But right then I was alone. The bus had not arrived. Yet. Haute couture, the basis of Christian Lacroix operation, will never be able to make the kind of profit that perfume, accessories and ready to wear fashion make, and this turns out to be a major reason for the label demise. While prices for dresses haute coutute often climb up to $10,000 to $250,00, in reality there are very few pieces that are actually being sold. Unlike Chanel, christian Dior and Armani, which have a long ago created their bestselling perfumes and accessories, but even tho how much I love Christian Lacroix I hate to say he has still continued to rely on its gorgeous, but very expensive dresses..
In the UK, Bakewelllived the life of a true blue Bunyip Aristocrat, in spirit if not in name. His Australian adventures had made him a wealthy man. Neil Gunson in Good Country Cranbourne Shire 1968, describes theWestern Port properties as great Tooradin empire, (p123) noting that they were put out to lease, the revenue derived presumably proving to be a nice little earner for the British based Bakewell..
The following day a fox sparrow appeared. This lovely, large sparrow always visits us on it way north in the summer and south in the winter. Because of its size seven inches it could easily dominate the smaller birds as it scratches towhee like at the seeds below the back steps, but usually this rusty tailed sparrow is off by itself, completely ignoring the juncos, song sparrows, and other ground feeding birds..
Making the rounds of parties as he is able, George meets a Mr. And Mrs. Custis and is impressed by their devotion and their dancing skills. I really like buying from Nancy 🙂 I actually go through Henry (I believe her boyfriend?) as I found Nancy takes much longer to reply but find her stuff great for the price 🙂 I have the Victorine you got in mono and actually find it to be one of the lowest accuracy/quality pieces I’ve had from her because the canvas has a bizarre rubbery feeling to it and is very very matte. I’ve done 3 conditions with turtle wax and it’s much better now 🙂 I wouldn’t hesitate to buy DA/DE bags from her, but I go with other sellers for monogram bags because I don’t think her mono canvas is consistently passable. Otherwise I stick to her mono SLGs which are about half the price of other sellers and I’m not so fussy about! Definitely been intrigued by her Marmont bags and now I’m very tempted! :).
