Short n’ Sweet

Cardigan: Glassons

Blouse: Jeans West

Skirt: Pearl & Elspeth

Shoes: Wittner

Brooch: Julia Swaney

Just a short ‘n sweet one here, my dears, as I’ve had a looooong day, and I’m looking forward to spending the rest of the evening curled up on the couch with The Sophisticate with my feet in his lap and some rubbish on telly.

I did just quickly want to let my Sydneyside readers know about Gisela Ramirez’s Very Exciting Launch on the 19th of this month though:

Gisela’s doing brilliant stuff – a plus-size blogger¬†who was so utterly fed up with what was on offer that she started her own label – and has gone from strength to strength, including an appearance in Gabi Gregg’s Wilhelmina Models Photo shoot earlier this year.

Unfortunately I can’t make it up there myself, but pop along if you can (there’s more information on Gisela’s Facebook Page) and show some support!

Casual, er, Tuesday

Shirt: Jeanswest

Cardigan: Eliza Parker

Skirt: Sussan

Boots: Boots for Broads


Today is the last day of our long, long weekend and – apart from being rudely woken at 5am by drunken louts on the door bell – it was a satisfyingly lazy one.

A much more welcome individual rang the door bell at ten: the postie (mysteriously working on a public holiday) with a parcel of goodies from the delicious Jessica at Eliza Parker which included this “Double Tie Cardigan

It’s the perfect piece for casual comfort, and it comes with an obi sash, though I’m wearing it open today because the weather was quite mild. It’s made a light jersey fabric, making it a good trans-seasonal piece, and I really like the long cuffs. It sits well open or closed.

Also excellent for comfort are my Boots For Broads Kerrin Boots. They’re a little bit big in the calf, and I usually wear them over jeans, but they’re a lovely soft leather, and with a pair of big fleecy innersoles they’re as comfortable as slippers to wear.

I’ve blogged about the experience of shopping with Boots For Broads before (here and here, mostly) so I won’t go on about it, but I’ve got a wide-calf-boot lust-list in the works, so stay tuned for that!
