The Art of Being Foul-Mouthed

I woke up today to an email that I found quite hilarious and it is fitting that I share this with you:

"Somewhere in Paris, far, far away lies a beautiful atelier called LOCHER'S."

Sounds all romantic and innocuous and hey, it mentions Paris! Read on ...

"At first glance they wouldn’t look out of place in your grandmother’s wardrobe, HOWEVER these little creations are anything but sweet and naive with their prudently placed potty-mouthed sayings along the needlepoint blossoms and birdies."

At this point, I think I gave a muffled choke and imagined myself wearing one of them pieces to church or visit a stern older relative who will be staidly sipping her tea as she scrutinized me meanly before her razor sharp eyes finally zoomed in on what my accessories may say ...

I also imagine that the same stern older relative will not be too impressed but hey, if the rebel in you is looking to rack up a commotion, this might be it.

Or if it is too in-your-face, how about a little sneaky cheeky?

I've went through and picked out my 2 favourite jewellery which would go nicely with my dresses. I like my accessories to either make a statement or extremely delicate - 2 sides of a pole. These are subtle and the first necklace carries a little amount of playfulness I enjoy in the things I own. The bunched up blue flowers will be a lovely contrast against my navy blue dresses. It is just the sweetest thing!

I also have to say that I also found some really cute totes that I would love to have. These are the type of totes that would bring me out for coffee with magazines in it, to the library and filled up with books, to a picnic on a fabulous day. Of course, with most of Locher's items, these also have a little extra dirty side to them. Have you spotted them yet?

is the brainchild of Nicole Locher who modernizes vintage elements she found in flea markets, hence creating unique little accessories that invokes mixed emotions (a smile to the Gen Y and a possible frown from the Gen X). What I found most fascinating about her is that her mother, herself and her daughter share the same birthday! To digress, the problem is whenever someone tell me his/her birthday, I inadvertently calculate backwards to the day their parents made love. Warped huh? Trust me, I know.

So if you are interested, you can get a 20% off the entire shop if you order before August 31st by entering the word DARLING in the "coupon code" field during checkout. They ship worldwide!

Dee, I think the two pieces you picked out are splendid! How cute is the little black book! I like the idea of a bit of naughty in these pieces, especially since the pieces themselves look so feminine, demure and innocent! :)

I totally love the "I would wreck you" necklace but the coupon code you gave us doesn't work on it. :( Alas!

Hi Bella, yes that's what I think too - a hidden naughty agenda behind the world of demure.

Ace: I've sent an email to them to ask why. If you'll leave me your email address (send me an email), I'll let you know when they reply me! I saw the 20% discount code in my mailbox and thought it would be fab to share. Sorry it didn't work! :)

Ha! Too funny. I love the ones with sweet nothings, but then a shovel or meat cleaver. Hilarious!
