‘An oldie but a goodie’ would be much of an understatement for this brocade skirt. I bought it nearly 20 years ago (yeah when I was 1) from a thrift store. It still looks the same as it did back then, much like Will Smith in all of his MIB movies. Because of its flattering shape and floral motifs, it’s never succumb to the seasons. I’m thankful for timeless pieces like this, if our house burnt down I’d probably grab this skirt (if I can find it quick enough in the black hole of my closet room). As I mentioned earlier in the year I’ve been trying to reacquaint with all of my neglected wardrobe pieces, this is one example of that, but I’m finding that 2013 has also given me opportunities to rekindle many friendships that have become stagnant due to geographical, cultural or emotional barriers. I’m so happy to have these friends back in my life and look forward to being there for them more this year. Why do I sound so reflective? Well I guess acres and acres of greenery and flora do sooth the mind… Vintage Charlie Brown Shirt, Earrings, Clutch & Skirt / Edenborough Evans Necklace/ Paula Walden Ring / Estelle Deve Cuff / Tony Bianco heels If you are considering a weekend getaway, I cannot recommend Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park enough. You don’t need to make a huge playlist on your iPhone or stock up on Pringles for a tediously long roadtrip. It’s only a 30-minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD, but when you arrive at the idyllic mansion, you will have completely forgotten about the hustle and bustle of our manic existence. That is, until you turn on your phone… So I have a challenge for you, when you head to the Mansion on your next getaway, mention my name (so you can get a hefty discount: $199 for Friday night stay instead of $350, plus a bottle of Champagne), and turn off your phones, so you can enjoy each other’s company, the grandeur of the hotel and the picturesque surrounds of your weekend residence.
[spoiler title=”中文版”] 这条裙子虽然很老了，但我仍然深爱着它。我从旧货店买了它近20年了。但它仍然看起来是一样的，讨人喜欢的形状和花卉图案，它没有季节性。我很感激这样的永恒的作品，如果我们的房子烧毁了，我可能会抓带着这条裙子逃出来。正如我前面提到我需要多穿衣柜里的衣服，这就是的个例子，拥有了那么久的裙子继续时髦，这证明了它的设计师的才能。我发现今年神给我机会重新点燃了许多友谊。以前很久没见的朋友们，因为心里和实际的距离拉长了，我们现在又能成为朋友。我希望今年能与他们后更多的来往。为什么我听起来这么严肃？嗯，我想是因为碧绿的草坪和五颜六色的花对我们有探索的影响…… 如果你正在考虑下个周末去哪里度假，我建议你去拜访Mansion Hotel & Spa at Werribee Park。你并不需要开漫长的路，但一边开着离墨尔本市中心才30-分钟路程你就能看到美丽的农村风景。但当你到达了田园诗般的的的宅邸内后，您将完全忘记市中心吵闹的那一幕。当然，你会觉得无比宁静，直等你把手机打开……所以，我给你一个挑战，当你预订Mansion时，别忘记提起我的名字（这样你你能得到折扣：周五晚上住才$199，而不是$350，而且他们会加上一瓶香槟），关掉你的手机，这样您可以真正享受富丽堂皇的酒店和田园诗般的风景。：）。[/spoiler]
