Powder Blue

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking they've excelled themselves with this one. And you'd be right. We've revisited the biretta of the Superior of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, with a watered silk outer and silk lining, but topped with the extraordinary plumage of a Gamarelli silk pom-pom. Sometimes when all the sisters are asleep, we like to sit, quietly, just marvelling at it.

Best be going. Mother Prioress has hired in a pre-lenten devotional coach who used to be a chaplain to the Royal Marines. She's stood at the door brandishing the convent's arctic fire hose and claims she can smell pride in here...


  1. Ah, this one is beautiful and special. The pom-pom can be used discreetly to powder one's nose, if one is in the habit of powdering one's nose.
