Samedog - something different!

For some reason all my friends are very talented and funny people...no, I'm not biased. Artists, creatives, great business people, amazing cooking skills, musicians, and we are all seriously good at dancing and singing using remote controls as microphones ( but that's another story). But I've just gone into www.samedog.com which belongs to my friend Rory. He started as my husband's friend to be honest but now I claim him as mine too. Do yourself a favour and have a look at the blog. It's funny, clever, full of great art, clothing, and interesting looks at life. And if you are local, you may even recognise a great pic of my favourite local cafe Blend.I've bought several tees, originally as gifts but they never made it as gifts. They live in my wardrobe now. And we have a 'House on a hill' painting too.
Miss you in Perth Rory but love getting all your Tassie news on your blog now!

In defense of the Fab Four!

So anyone who knows me, knows I love Sex and the City. It should therefore come as no surprise that I saw it for the second time on Sunday night. And loved it again!
But I have to say I'm a little disappointed in all the negative reviews it has been getting. Starting with the reviews saying that the girls are too old for the movie now!!! Why? I don't want to see them pretending to be young. I love that Miranda is finding herself in her career; I love that Carrie and Big are going through that 'we're getting comfy in our marriage' thing; I love that Charlotte is like every woman I know who is a mother (possibly without the designer threads while baking but still...); and I love that Samantha, who beat breast cancer, is now trying to 'beat' menopause with a little help from Suzanne Somers. I've watched them all get older but that hasn't changed the fun and the fashion. And as for those critics who panned the movie because there was no plot - its not meant to be a Shakespearean work of art people! It's meant to be fun, friends, and fashion - and in that case, it hit the mark. I don't want a realistic look at fashion - I want Carrie wearing amazing gowns while watching TV....I want crazy over-the-top dresses in the desert...and I really want access to that wardrobe.....ah dreams....

I'm a fan of Zhouk. Good tailoring, nice lines, great fabrics and loving the use of studs and bling pins.
Robyn looks fab in this dress - with bling pin on the shoulder.

And I'm really into this cream tunic - for some reason I want to be riding on the back of a chariot or wearing sandals and walking the streets of Rome. But in this weather, I guess I'll settle for knee high boots and walking to Blend for a coffee instead!

The girls are back!

Last night I saw Sex and the City 2 and I LOVED it!!!! I won't spoil it for anyone but the fashion is amazing - its a mix of vintage, old faves, current lines, and flashbacks. There were several items I really felt my wardrobe needed....ok more than several. Of course I don't have any red carpet events to wear them to so if you drop by the store and I'm really dressed up, you'll understand why! Speaking of red carpet, if you love following what the stars wear on the red carpet, you must look at www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com
If you are thinking of watching Sex and the City 2, consider going to the Windsor cinemas in Nedlands on the 13th June for the 6.15pm session. All profits will be going to the Cat Haven and you can buy tickets by calling 9442 3605. There will be great door prizes including a gift voucher from Sorella Store. It will be my second viewing, but certainly not my last!
