I just spent very long traipsing 'round Amazon snapping up books with spiderlike fingertips to add them to my rapidly extending 'Bookshelf' wishlist, so please be nice and save up your money! October 9 is approaching! COUGH COUGH!
(For the clueless, October 9 is my birthday and I would really like to get some nice books like these for my birthday- of course, help yourself to the 'Wardrobe' and 'Telly' sections as well. Stuff yourselves! Wrapping paper not necessary.)
Saw Emma Roberts in WWW
just now, and was intrigued by their description of her outfit: it introduced me to a new word, dolman
, which I immediately Googled. I was led to a Wikipedia entry
(JT should be pleased) which told me that "a Dolman (from Turkish dolaman "robe" ) is a type of clothing. Originally, the term referred to a long and loose garment with narrow sleeves and an opening in the front. It was worn generally by the Turks, and is not unlike a cassock in shape"
. Later, an entry aptly titled "Fashionable Dolman" informed me that "a dolman is also an outer garment worn by ladies, with wide cape like arrangements instead of sleeves. It was a favourite style of mantle worn by fashionable women in the 1870s and 80's".
makes slightly more sense. Emma's tank is DELICIOUS :D I just might add "Dolman tank" to my wishlist, if anyone gets what I mean. Also: statement necklace! In the same post as Emma's, "up-and-coming actress Tarajia Morrell"
pairs a wonderful nautical tee with a thick pearl necklace! I tried to look for such necklaces today in Tampines but to no avail. Maybe Bangkok will yield better results...
