Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten loreŚ

As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.... - The Raven (1845), Edgar Allan Poe
Oh, for the Love of Vintage! (blog)
Darhling, Daisy and Tuppence, you all look wonderful and you all three look like you are having so much fun in your photos its a pleasure to see them.
Pip: wonderful look that you "wear" well (ie being natural and not having the clothes "wear" you), like you stepped from an Evelyn Waugh or Kazuo Ishiguro novel!

Crazy Daisy, thank you very much. I'm a big fan of yellow of any kind, but particularly fond of dark(er) and rich shades. Your knit set is rather lovely too, you look fab!
Mai and Chasseur, thank you again. High praise indeed, it was remarked on Sunday as to where I was hiding Aloysius ha!
All the best,

Everyone looks fabulous as always. Loving those leather gloves, Darhling.
This was a couple of days ago, I think:
Week before last, teaching at our partner University in Beijing:
A more casual approach for a day off in town:
If in doubt - overdress.
Great shoes all-around, Edward!
I tell it like it used to be.
