I should be so embarrassed to say that I did not get up until 1pm today, but it was so good that I must confess that I do not feel bad about it at all!
I have been catching up with Dexter (I am half way through Season 5 now) and we have had some late nights, so this morning was all about catching up with some Zzzzzzzz's
There is something very decadent about having a PJ afternoon, I thoroughly recommend them though! The only thing we left the house for this afternoon was a Starbucks (The January Special Vanilla Spice Latte is not that great though, so I stuck to the regular Skinny Latte!)
So it was a lovely family day (well, apart from 'The Teenager' wanting to dye her hair bluey/purple - this is an ongoing battle that I think I am going to lose)
I have been trying to perfect an eye flick this afternoon (I told you it was a slow day!), I know that practice makes perfect but I am really struggling with how high to end the flick and how wide the line should be! It just doesn't look very good up-close ....
I found a YouTube tutorial that was really helpful! It is only a minute long and sooooo good, I am definitely going to try it next. Just click on the link below.
So tonight we went out for a local dinner. Jools Wore this beautiful Cape by Fearne Cotton
A big Thankyou to my gorgeous friend Clairey for reminding me I had it! Hope you manage to get one soon honey!
I styled it with a black fine knit jersey underneath (from Zara)
and wore it with Jeans, Kurt Geiger Fondant Wedge Boots (from an earlier blog) and my Lulu Guiness Lips Clutch in Fuchsia
I also wore the Bright Pink YSL Lipstick (Shade 10) which matched the Clutch perfectly
We had a lovely evening which included a couple of Cocktails and a Cappuccino to help me stay awake to watch some more of my favourite Serial Killer later ...........
Karl Lagerfeld is releasing a collection of his own designs on Net-a-Porter next week (Dubbed Diffusion Chanel!). An early sneak peak is available here if any of you have a free afternoon!
The collection is available to purchase online from January 25th. I have had a little look at what is available and a couple of pieces caught my eye.
The trousers are very similar to the J Brand houndstooth ones that I blogged about a couple of days ago. The jacket is going to be priced at £340 and the Jeans at £195. For a Chanel delusion line, it is reasonably priced!
I also adore the collars that he has created, but I cannot help thinking that many High Street Stores are already selling similar versions of the sequinned one for a lot less money. If anybody has seen any recently, can you let us know!
Of all the pieces, the one thing I would really like is the White Collar. I think it encapsulates Lagerfeld completely and would work with lots of different outfits. Hmmm or, I wonder if hubby would notice if I just cut a collar off of one of his shirts !!!
My VOD (Virtual Outfit of the Day) for Saturday is this one!
Cyan Baxter Jeans by Topshop £40
These are not strictly Virtual as I bought these recently and they are a good fit and a great colour and price!
Embroidered Lace Top from Sea NY at Matches £310
New Simple Jazz Shoes by Louboutin £460
and to match that flash of red sole!
Balenciaga Folk Messenger Bag £675
