the weather forecasters are predicting our first snowfall this weekend, i actually saw someone putting their snow plow onto the front of their truck yesterday which made me want to run home and hide under the duvet for the next 6 months!
i swear my fashion sense takes a plummet at this time of year. whenever i dress up to go out i end up being really cold. i’m still refusing to wear gloves yet although everyone else around me has succumbed already. i just think i wouldn’t be wearing gloves at this time of year in england. i can’t get my head to fully accept that i live in a colder climate and i should in fact dress accordingly. It seems like 2 seconds ago that I packed away the Ugg boots for the summer and here we are again, best friends for another 5 months!
so yep, at the minute i’m resorting to walking to work in a padded gilet. something i would never have worn at home unless i was on a hike, but it’s so cold in the mornings that i just want to bundle up and get to work as soon as i can...
so while i sit here trying to warm up my mouse hand (which is perpetually freezing, how does that happen?) i’m going to dream of all the nice winter clothes i would wear if
1. i had a car to get me to work so i don’t have to wear 3,000 layers to work
2. i could actually get up that 30 minutes earlier in the morning to make myself look presentable
3. oh yeah, i had the money to buy all this stuff.
enjoy, and let me know how you stay fashionable in the cold weather...
this english gal is still learning!
as promised... this is the gift that i sent to kellie from 74 lime lane.
a few months ago i took part in the lovely package exchange through the blog oh hello friend.
i was partnered with kellie from 74 lime lane, and this is a slideshow of the lovely things i received...
everything was beautifully packaged and kellie was spot on with her gift choices... my favourite piece was a special edition copy of vogue australia featuring illustrations by my favourite illustrator david downton!
i will post images of the lovely package that i sent to kellie tomorrow.
i’m not ashamed to admit that stella mccartney is my ultimate favourite designer. i strongly feel that she truly knows what works on women… so i was really excited to see her spring summer 2010 ready to wear collection.
however, i wasn’t totally wowed on first glance. i know ready to wear is always the ‘safe’ option for catwalk collections but something about this just felt a little too safe.
and stella… what are you doing bringing my number one fashion hate of all time…
… the button down denim skirt (eww… this makes me shudder just thinking about it!) if anyone ever catches me wearing one of these you hereby have my permission to tie me up and beat me with a lace glove.
i would sooner be seen in the 80s fashion disaster that is a shell suit than one of these skirts!
but i couldn’t make such a snap judgment about a stella collection – so i decided to look a little deeper. actually there are a lot of lovely items in this collection. i find it a little more like a cruise collection than a ready to wear spring summer collection but that isn’t a bad thing. there are a lot of pieces that would be just lovely on a summer vacation.
here are my ‘one week in the sun’ suggestions….
and here are my favourite details from the show…
stella you have once again redeemed yourself in my eyes!
