but I am so lucky lucky lucky!
Do you know Desiree from Pull Your Socks Up!?
She is glamorous and stunningly beautiful, as you can see,
but what you can't see is what a lovely friend she is.
Thoughtful, generous, kind, creative, hilariously funny and super lovely.
She recently sent me a parcel of goodies (I know! more parcels!) including this incredible coat...
1950s burgundy velvet with trumpet sleeves and a Mandarin collar
Also enclosed was the fabulous detachable faux fur collar,
which I have been wearing with EVERYTHING, including my pyjamas.
And look - we are both wearing our faux pony fur leopard belts today.
Though I am being a little more post modern and wearing mine off centre.
Live and learn, people.
I did a different hairdo today, which looked pretty sweet
but even with forty seven bagillion bobby pins, it kept falling out.
Oh well. I guess it was as post modern as my skewiff belt.
Also enclosed were these fabulous earrings -
how did she know that I have a thing for birds-out-of-cages?
And finally, she included two movies I have been meaning to watch for ages -
And a charming looking book called Water For Elephants.
Since I love elephants and I loved Like Water For Chocolate,
I fully expect to love Water For Elephants.
That makes perfect sense, right?
Thank you so much Desiree - you are such a darling.
