I need to find a necklace like the one Kate is wearing here. The ones I have seen look tacky and awful and I would just rather not go there. I know many of you think that the beauty of layering necklaces is that you can use a bunch of cheap ones and still achieve the look. However, it's just not working for me.
Well it is Friday, so there is a whole weekend just waiting for me to look for such a piece.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!

What do you think of the brocade skirt. Do you have one or ten? If so, where did you get it or them?
Brocade Skirt by Roberto Cavalli
By Zen Trade
Alright, so it may not be the definition of gaudy. I actually tried to find something really crazy to post. Alas, I could not find any clothing outrageous enough. So if you want to recommend a collection with a deliciously gaudy element well now that would be "delightful''.

Yes, such individuals may never have existed and I may have made this whole thing up. However, I like this description.
The perfect accessory - a dark red tinged with black pout. A great way to work this trend is to stick to matte colours and to use your finger to apply the colour by pressing rather than rubbing the lippy in. Try not to make it look too perfect as I think it looks better when it looks like more of an afterthought. Or you may like to go all out and create a purple/black glossy pout.

This stunning British actress does not get enough credit for her gorgeous style. Let alone her simple yet oh so perfect hair and makeup.

- A sexy pair of Michael Kors Heels
- Yellow patent sky high heels by Guess
- A soft & buttery tan bag with cream trimming from 7 for all mankind . This reminded me of Australian brand Mimco - so I had a bit of a Aussie moment. Well not exactly but close enough ( You can take the girl out of Australia but you can't take Australia out of the girl - This is one big country to lug around)
I am still dancing around my living room with excitement over these new items (I think the neighbours are starting to wonder, so I have tried to keep this down a bit :). Honestly, I feel very lucky and fortunate to have received such lovely gifts. I don't think I really deserve such things, but it does make me feel very grateful.
I took a few pics of my new goodies. Although, I must admit, they are far more special in real life.
Also does anyone have any picture uploading tips? My pictures seem to choose were they want to go after they are publised.

This sentiment has subsided in recent times. I have now found myself intrigued by offbeat items were I actually give some thought and time to in pursuit. This change in mindset got me thinking. Why did I suddenly have an interest in something I had very little interest in before? I though maybe it was a sign that my tastes were evolving or something along those lines. However, I have come to realise that this is not the case. My jewelry sensibility lies more towards sentimentality rather than fashion. With technology, vintage stores and the like I have discovered items that appear to tell a story. That are beautifully crafted items that are sentimental and not just ornate. It may seem silly but I never felt this way about jewelry before - it had always been so sterile and meaningless to me. This art form that I was showed little regard for is truly an expression of both past and present - you need only to look for it.
I have put together a list of two interesting jewelry designers that I find inspiring
- Sea Glass Jewellery by Gina Cowen
Gina creates jewellery made by using coloured broken glass washed up on the beach. Some of the glass used dates back to the 17th century.
- Urth Jewellery (Image from collection - see link http://www.urthjewellery.com/)This line not only creates beautiful simple pieces but they also invest a portion of all profits back in to the communities from which the gold was mined. I think this is a wonderful idea.

So if you ever feel like a little bit of style inspiration. Then why not pop on a Catherine classic and absorb some of her parisien charm.

With the overuse of such phrases as "that's cute" or "really cute" & "really hot" popping out of the hosts mouth a little too often for a half hour time slot.
Alright, so the contestants usually end up looking much better by the end of the show. I just wish we could flip through all the pointless dribble and cut to the before and after.
Perhaps, rather than complain I should simply use the remote. But you see, then I wont see what happens at the end. Argh!
The site is easy to navigate-Which is always a plus for me. Most importantly, the clothes are wearable. I was really amazed at how many wearable pieces there was on this site. The prices were reasonable too. Well not salvation army cheap. But cheaper than some of those other high end vintage shops. I think, however, that the quality of the pieces reflect the price. Especially when purchasing such individual pieces.
Here are some of my favourite items (some are a bit kooky, but I think when you go vintage you can get away with it). What do you think of them?
