Happy Boxing Day everyone! How did you celebrate Christmas? On Christmas Eve, I surprised hubby with a visit to a nursing home where we carolled to the elderly residents with attempted harmonies. It was so much fun- for us and for them! We met a stylish centenarian who looked decades younger, she revealed that her secret to longevity is to talk to everyone she meets- ‘every Tom Dick and Harry.’ Sounds like a great New Year Resolution! Our parents and a friend joined us for dinner afterwards. I roasted a turkey for the first time! Must say, having friends and family over for dinner is a great way to force myself to cook. Gotta do it more often!
Lately I’ve been obsessed with shirt dresses, functional and easy chic, they are perfect for everyday dressing. I found the khaki dress recently (was actually purchased in Switzerland 3 years ago) in the black hole of my closet and am uber excited to debut it for you with this amazing leather hat by KONSTRUKT. For all the Hermés-admirers out there, I’m sure you’ll empathise with me as to why I fell hard for this hat. Butter soft hide, creamy pastel, it was love at first sight. I actually ordered it 4 months ago and was hoping to wear it to the races…but just as well, it arrived in time for summer, now I doubt I’ll leave home without it.
Ooh and I finally got prescription sunglasses, so I can now drive without squinting. I’m really intrigued to know what you all received for Christmas! Tell tell! I’ll start first since you twisted my arm, I bought another Roksanda Ilincic dress, can’t wait for it to arrive :)
Did you love your Christmas pressies? If not, I have just launched my online outlet over the weekend which include designer garments from the Cecylia boutique as well as vintage gems from my wardrobe which I have collected for years but have hardly ever (some never) worn. Something special for yourself for 2012 perhaps? xx
