Paper Skye

I was lucky enough to attend the Up! Finale at Perth Fashion Festival this week. And it was amazing - a very SATC moment for me!
Paper Skye is a stunning label designed right here in Perth by the very talented Kirsten Shadbolt. She has an incredible eye for detail and feminine styles which is reflected in her designs - which will be in Sorella Store very soon.
These are some pics from the night showing her designs - the pics aren't wonderful because photography is certainly not one of my skills but hopefully they give you an idea of just how gorgeous the fabrics are and the beautiful tailoring of the garments.xx

When is a cougar just a cougar?

It's been a while since I last posted - no excuse other than been busy with life!
Here's a question - what's with all the cougar talk of late? How did women of a certain age become known as cougars? I looked up the definition of cougar - the animal variety is a mountain cat, a sleek fierce wild cat. The urban dictionary says a cougar is - a woman of a certain age looking for men younger than herself. I don't get it - where is the correlation? And why the cougar? Why not a lioness? Or a tigress? And if a woman of a certain age looking for a younger man is called a cougar, then what is a man of certain age looking for a younger woman called? The only animal analogy I could of, and its not nice, is a bear - it sleeps all winter, is covered in hair, wakes up cranky looking for food, generally smells, and often carries weight around the middle! Sorry - I said it wasn't nice!
