See that bag?... 2 things, firstly, do not call it a bumbag or worse this (I dislike that term so much I cannot write it... besides, that f-word means something else in Aus...). 
Secondly...I make them.  Sorry. I made them.  My fingers and sanity no longer have the patience required.  Click the first pic to see close-up of bag.  Click this to purchase*.  

My lace  pants...  they're not actually pants.  Just a length of material I was going to make pants out of but... a) I can't and b) I can't be bothered now that I've made them into dhoti pants!  Got asked about them a lot today.  Then told I was a "genius".  hmmm.  Didn't take much to impress that lass...  Regardless, it made my Monday and it was a gooood Monday.  Tell me how you are.  Please.

...had a very gorgeous pair of lace flares that I bought in 1993, just recently gave them away... thought I wouldn't wear them again mainly because some things are starting to make me feel a little 'mutton' and also because they're in fashion and every young Australian hipster worth her muted tones blog is wearing/coveting/"OMG-ing" one.   And now I want them back.  Isn't that a bitch? 

*I started making these bags way back in 2004.  They've been quite popular, which I have to admit, did surprise me!

Hello, Gorgeous! Love the lace creations and yes, here too we don't use the "F" word, it's plain old bum bag! You look soooo good in black with a heap of bright accessories.
All good here, freezing cold with at least six inches of snow on the way...yikes! xxx

I've been meaning to make a pair of Dhothi pants for a while now , but just cannot get it right , so what i do is drape them and wear a belt on top , but Going to the Ladies room can be a bitch , i will have to drape th whole thing again . Loooveeesss this look :) said...

Love Love Love the sparkling greens against black in your outfit. That eyeliner is absolutely rocking and don't even get me started on how much I like your luscious lock. They are so shiny and healthy.

... You make them? Like yourself? WOW! I wouldn't have the patience. But then that's why I am me ... and YOU ARE YOU = AWESOME! :)

You are a talented, ethereal beauty... I am in awe of you every single day! That sequin bag is gorgeous and I *love* the lace dhoti trousers ... too bad about giving away the flares!

Glad you had a great Monday & hope the rest of your week is wonderful! :)

Love the way you have draped these pants. And the sequin bag that you have made, plus the sequin bangle is fab accessory.
How have you done this effect of stars dropping down on your blog? Please tell me.

those bags... they are the glamorous travel pouches eh! we used to carry some neon colored ones when we were kids i think! but yours is so hip! the shine is similar to your bracelet too! and love those lace bottoms (since they aren't pants;)
