one plus one equals Friend of Mine Winter 2010

So here's the thing, I'm meant to be studying...the aim is to get my first assignment in for my new course by the end of this week.

But how is this possible if I can't seem to drag my eyes away from blog after blog after blog (none of which are related to Freelance Journalism Fundamentals 1).

Currently on my radar...Friend of Mine Winter 2010.

After viewing the AMAZING collection I put together this equation;

1x pre owned Friend of Mine MJ Tan wedge boots


1x newly purchased black and tan spotted Friend of Mine Winter 2010 dress with black lace up detail


(a) joy beyond belief,

(b) another terribly bad/unnecessary dent on the credit card, or

(c) all of the above?

I'm afraid my math skills have always been quite terrible so as a result I am going to take a guess and circle the answer A.

lord of the rings

Its been a month since my birthday and a few months since christmas, so whilst I am now another year older and none the wiser, I am still smarting over the pretty bling bling gifts I received.

Exhibit A - my shiny new silver jade green ring to which I owe either many a compliment or many an akward stare (yes it is B-I-G). My dear dad actually put this one together, so not only is it prettier than I had imagined but it is handmade and therefore has all the more meaning.

Exhibit B - my most adored Christmas present (from Santa of course), my Friend of Mine MJ camel suede wedge boots. I put these on and life is suddenly a whole lot sweeter.

And lastly, I present my Samantha Wills charm bracelets...I wear one at least every day but they look best when they are dangling off my arm all together, in which case you can hear me approaching from a mile away.

Charmed indeed

And as would Julie Andrew's would say....'these are a few of my favourite things'.

wang's wisdom

"Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing"

- Alexander Wang -

Case in point, to all the models as seen in and around the fashionable meat packing district and the taxi laden streets of downtown New York for New York City Fashion Week February 2010 (oh and I've thrown in a few Paris fashion week snaps for good measure!)

Quite frankly however, I was a little disappointed. Now I'm sure the subliminally freezing temperatures in NYC were mostly to blame, but have we not yet seen the end of PVC leggings, biker boots and the ubiquitous model trademark black jeans?

(...she says as she jumps online in desperate search of all three items at a fraction of the cost of a model's buy price)

Evidently not.
