Fancy Floor-skimmers

Every so often a function arises that forces us to get the long gowns out.  The length of the dress may only be to hide the lily white legs, it could be for a white tie event, the Opera or perhaps dinner with the Duchess of Cambridge, whatever the reason, when they do crop up I know it can be a task and a half to find a non-frumpy, well fitted floor length dress that wont break the bank.  If we could all wear Alexander McQueen it might be slightly easier to find, but seen as you aren’t exactly going to wear it that often (unless you are a regular at these sort of events) then it definitely is not an investment piece.  If you are one of the lucky, or unlucky (depending on how you view it) ladies that has a fancy “do” in the diary, fear not, I have done the hard work and hopefully you will slot right into one of the fabulous floor skimming finds.

Stacking up them Jewels

I love stax of stacks, delicate necklaces, rings on all fingers, earring cuffs, bangles, bracelets, and general wrist accessories.  I have always loved collecting jewellery, and usually try to buy something whenever I travel to a different country.  Well I don’t exactly need to try, I just naturally gravitate towards metals and gems and then end up smitten with at least one piece that I simply have to have. My husband struggles to understand this obsession and gets very confused if not slightly annoyed when I proclaim to want yet another ring… I have started to become slightly more obsessed with acquiring jewellery so I thought I would get my fix by just browsing and sharing some of my favourites with you.
