The 12 dresses of Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..... And so the search for the perfect Christmas dress begins. I love that so many of us have this tradition - I used to think it was just my family but clearly no. And there's nothing like finding the dress - you know the one that will be perfect for opening presents, eating amazing food and drinking champagne. And you'll feel totally glam but in an easy relaxed kind of way.
Well I start looking for my dress quite early. I think I've got it - it's a Shona Joy green long dress that should be in store shortly...but I'll keep you posted when it arrives.
In the meantime, here are the 12 dresses of Christmas - assorted styles for every type of Christmas celebration whether fancy, casual, at the beach, by the pool, or with all the family.

Rafters made me cry...

If you watched Packed to the Rafters last night, you'll know exactly what I mean. Mel Rafter died last night in a mobile phone/car accident ( adds weight to the latest advertising about safe driving doesn't it?). I cried and cried. Al had to remind me that it is a show, she's ok in real life and its just her character. That's not the point though is it? It feels like someone real in my life. Guess that's what great acting is - making you feel as though the loss of a character is actually going to impact your life. It was definitely one of those moments in TV that I'll remember and I suspect next week will be just as emotional. So today I woke up, still thinking about Rafters, and then thinking about other TV show moments that have made me cry. In no particular order, here are my teary moments:
Molly from A Country Practice - too sad. Still cry when I watch re-runs on Foxtel. If you have no idea who Molly is, or A Country Practice for that matter, find someone over mid 30's. Or watch out for re-runs on Foxtel.
Claire McLeod from McLeod's Daughters - sobbed my little eyes out.
Final Episode of Sex and the City - not for sad reasons so much but the scene where Carrie returns to NY after her disastrous trip to Paris with the Russian. I loved it when she surprised the girls by turning up at their cafe - tears in the eyes now just thinking about it.
And finally, the final episode of Will and Grace - when Will, Grace, Karen and Just Jack are sitting at the bar ageing and singing their goodbyes. Perfect finish to a very funny show but I cried then too.
And yes Al, I know they aren't real people but for an hour a week, they are to me!xx

Paper Skye has arrived!

After much anticipation, Paper Skye has arrived and it doesn't disappoint. Very floaty and feminine, coupled with amazing fabric. Neutral colours so there is a style to suit you. This is just one of the gorgeous garments you can see in store now.Well done Kirsten - stunning range! Oh and the little ruffled layered vest in cream is perfect ( I'm sure it took hours to create!)
