It’s 4 fluid ounces, which I think is 100ml or thereabouts. I don’t think I’ll open it, but keep it as a vintage piece. I might sell it if I think it’s worth it, but it makes a nice companion to the vintage L’heure Attendue that I found a while back. Do you know when that design dates from?

39. The Girl With A Clock For A Heart The Girl With A Clock For A Heart by Peter Swanson My rating: 3 of 5 stars Peter Swanson’s intriguing novel has at its core a femme fatale reminiscent of some Hollywood classic such as Double Indemnity or Body Heat.

Another op shop scent today: Bulgari Eau The Rouge. Being National Op Shop Week, of course I went to the op shop, and found more fragrances! L-R: Sisley Soir de Lune, Prada Infusion d’Iris (2), Lentheric Finesse (discontinued), Nocturnes de Caron, Carthusia Io Capri (BNIB, shrink-wrapped), Polo, Vera Wang for men, Lolita Lempicka, Chopard Wish. The Io Capri is still shrink-wrapped. Later on I had an even better find at an antiques market. NIB.

This weekend is the start of National Op Shop Week here, so what I else would I be doing? I had some pretty good finds: Suits: Caruso navy stripe, super 180s , EU50R. Valentino Uomo, grey. EU52R (I passed on two Brioni suits, BTW, both were a bit too dirty for mine. I must be getting picky in my old age). Knit: John Smedley sea island cotton Shirts: Ascot Chang is Thomas Mason superfine cotton, if you can’t make that out. Some unusual finds: Small Kent shoe...
Sorry Foxy. I was getting ticked off by earlier misrepresentations of what I said, and maybe over-reacted.
It is a shame how young people these days struggle to understand simple written English. What I advised wasCan you spot the difference? It’s quite significant in the context of this discussion and I’d prefer that people did not attribute silly generalisations to me.

Can anyone suggest a good place in the Sydney CBD for food and craft beers? Will be hopping into a few with my son on Wed night.
