Wednesday - Half Way through Half Term ...... !

Hi Lovelies,

Well I totally missed out on the Victoria Beckham, 'Victoria' dresses this morning that dropped at Net-a-Porter!

I was tempted by the moon one, but the cat one that I really liked didn't even come into stock, so I don't feel too bad ........

They sold out by 10am and to be honest, they don't even look THAT great! You tell me if you think these dresses look like they are worth between £500 and £700! I think it is a little of the Emperors new clothes syndrome! Maybe if David Beckham was snapped in them .................. !

Well we have made it to half way through half term, I compare it to a really long car journey where instead of asking are we nearly there yet, they just say - "are we doing anything now". Every hour needs to be filled with something !!! I wouldn't change it though.

Mimi and I grabbed all the fashion mags and camped out at the coffee shop this afternoon with chocolate milkshakes and Lattes! Easily pleased and a pretty lovely way to spend time.

I am not a huge fan of all the yellow fashion that is going to be everywhere this spring. But I am going to make an exception for this cute little skirt, because I think you could work in some black and have some bumblebee chic going on!

In Heat Magazine, the must have of the week was the new L-Oreal Telescopic False Lash Mascara. Apparently it is as effective as a set of false lashes AND Cheryl Cole loves it ............. well I didn't need any more convincing than that lol!

So I will try this baby out tomorrow and report back my findings for you.

I have also been searching for the March copy of US Vogue as it has some beautiful Adele pictures in it. It should be released in the next few days, so if you do see it, can you scan the piccies!!

Tonight is Wine Wednesday and I was in dire need as I was watching the Arsenal Game! I am repeating as a mantra, it's only a game ............

Todays VOD is:

Peter Pillotto Crepe Dress £1105

Bottega Veneta Clutch £730

Louboutin Sex Shoes £825

Thanks so much for reading, I really like it!

Until Tomorrow x

I am a little surprised that the VB dresses sold out that quickly. I was thinking about trying that mascara will be intrested to hear you thoughts as when I try something new I always go back to Max Factor.
Have you thought about reading Vogue on your Ipad?

I bought Italian Vogue in WH Smith at Victoria station tonight if you want that when I have finished. I have terrible trouble with Mascara so look forward to hearing how this one works out, my lashes need all the help they can get! The VB dresses are too young and cutesy for me to be honest but amazed that they sold that quickly! I had two Latte's on my trip to London today, so enjoyed the coffee injection and swear that is why I am still up at gone midnight!

I would not pay anything for those dresses personally they look hideous! The moon one looks like a matrnity dress with some kind of feeding flap!

Sorry to be a downer but the mascara was not very good well not on me anyway : (

I am also 5 ft 2 and a half although my husband tells me there is no half, every time he measures the kids but that is what I used to be, I swear! Apparently you shrink when you get older!
Have emailed about last night.
Starbucks and it was lush, you are right I need to move, I am already having withdrawals!

Jools said...
