CMV Take 3

Yes or No: If a skirt can be a halter top, can a halter top be also a scarf?

cmv skirt - scarf1

Answer: YES!!!

cmv skirt - scarf
-- skirt: Carmen Marc Valvo (worn as a scarf) -- cami: Anne Klein ---belt: Banana Republic --
-- patent pumps: Chanel --

I'm really getting my money's worth on this skirt that doubles as a top, triples as scarf!!

My week has been great so far! Heaven smiled on me this week, it seems (prayers do work!)
Workwise, blogwise and tenniswise, it's really been great!

Got a new lovely award from the super funny, witty and classy,
Ela of Extra Dressing on the Side...

Thanks Ela!
Head over to Ela's witty blog and I guarantee you you'll be laughing your heart out with each of her posts!

...And on the tennis front, I couldn't be any happier!
If you remember, I was at the very bottom when we started our league a few weeks ago (nerves), inched a bit higher last week to no. 8 (persistence), and this week, I'm now no. 5 (luck). It really has nothing to do my skills though. It just helps a bit when some of the good players are a no-show, haha!

But hey, if I end up as no. 1 just for showing up week after week after week (dedication), heck I'll take it!

    Congratulations for being #5 on your champions list ;) I already see the new headline at the end of the year:

    Grace secured a record-breaking 1. grand slam, putting her ahead of her husband, who was present on Centre Court to watch Grace´s 7-6, 3 -6, 6-4 victory.

    Your skirt, top & scarf is such a versatile showstopper!!!!

  13. it works so well as a scarf! very innovative

  14. Hey Grace,

    Thank you for the update. I'm glad to hear you and your husband are doing so well in the tennis tournament. Continue to enjoy yourself and have fun at there. I hope you guys go all the way!!!

    I love the simplicity in your outfit. I love wearing black tanks with jeans and pumps. And the scarf/top/skirt looks great on you. It's amazing that you can wear it as a scarf as well. It's great cause it's black and white so it goes with pretty much anything and everything. You're so creative with your pieces, Grace and that's why I enjoy reading your blog. You make fashion fun.

    To answer a few of your questions: I shoot with a Nikon D60 and a 55-200 mm VR Lens. I also use a filter and a hood so that's why my pictures turn out really clear and rich in colours. I haven't heard people use the word "ta" yet. It must be a Melbourne thing. I've met one guy from there and he's really hard to understand. Gold Coast people aren't so bad. I haven't tried vegemite yet but I have come close. I think I will just for the sake of saying that I tried it, but most foreign people don't really like it so I will have to prepare myself when I do try it. And I've seen some Tim Tam cookies but haven't tried any yet. I will though, just for you, Grace. I think I might bring some home to the family as well cause I'm expecting it to be good :)

    And thank you for the sweet comment about my seaworld pictures and outfits. I always enjoy reading your comments, Grace. Thank you for supporting my blog by reading it and leaving comments. It means the world to me.

    I hope you have a great weekend. Enjoy what's left of summer and have some fun.


  15. Most def yes! That looks awesome. : )

  16. beloved gracey! you know i super love your switcheroo ideas, right? like this is so brilliant. i never would have thought that a skirt can be THAT versatile! its total fabulousness.

    and yes, go go go for sewing lessons love! though i don't know, id say go for patternmaking lessons (cuz ive always thought its easy to pick up sewing right away), but i think they're in the module!

    i can't wait to see you start sewing.:)


  17. Mmmh Because a stylish piece can have versatile faces that THE "fashionista" 's creativity naturally knows How to emphasize (AND on such a Radiant way with you) !!!
    ps: Thanks INFINITELY for your so Delicious comment (which Frankly made blushed a shy "self-proclaimed aesthete")!!! Mmmh I especially like your "Dominatrix realm" 's sulfurous mention, its so steamy power of evocation ("Sounds of a Dizzy High-Heeled Mistress' -Allegorical or not- Whip/ Scorching Beads of sweat") . . .
    Hope you're Well Dear.

    à Bientôt, Antoine
