Xmas pressies, New Year, London and me

On my umpteenth Sussex country walk, sheltering under a bush from the ever present drizzle the man looked at me and announced, god you look worn out, that was it - i may like the smokey eye look but not without makeup.  The fresh air is killing me, I am bored stiff, we are off to London - it may finish me but at least it will do so in style!

To all my lovely ladies and fashion men have a very good new year - see you in 2012 xx

And for a pic - I must have been very very good cos Santa certainly came down the chimney and wholeheartedly delivered - thank you lovely man xxx



I do love a Lanvin dolly and i have this dress which is so fab and i never ever get a shot off - coming soon i promise - it is the mans fave so he got me the doll - aaah 


The man definitely did go to Lanvin


Perfect shot of the purse not so good of the ring - the ring was the intended but for now you will just have to imagine how gorgeous it is - Diane Kordas - pink gold with upside down black diamonds - how wonderful is that and so sparkly - lucky lucky me

  1. God, you've been a particularly good girl! :) Love the presents so much. Is it the ring you saw before Christmas? Such a beautiful piece. And I adore the clutch, of course and the doll, she is so like you - very stylish and free.
    Hope trip to London goes well, without any side-effects.
    Glad you loved the Reiss things - as soon as I saw some of the pieces I thought of you. :)
    Lets just hope it'll be all silks and cottons and not a touch of poly. ;)

    Sending you all the best and warmest wishes for 2012, darling!

  14. I have to say, Santa knows you well and listens when hint's are thrown his way... Santa also, surprised me with lovely gold and moonstone earrings...
    I live in the desert with 10 thousand acres of Juniper trees, behind my home, so I do know what you mean when you say you want to go to London..

  23. Personally i am in love with your clutch but my mom who is also a fan of yours loves the doll, she has a soft spot for dolls like those. I bought her one last year during christmas and she always mentions how amazing it is and how vintage.
