I did quite well in the sales this year…
Given that I actually don’t like shopping (as in looking for something specific) and absolutely hate the sales with a passion (the crowds, the mess…), I surprised myself by finding a few nice things. Such as this knit dress (which is both more casual and curve-hugging than the fitted ponte dress I showed you a while ago…) and the loose-fitting cashmere cardigan.
Black and white has never been a favourite colour combination of mine, mainly because it really does nothing to enhance my natural colouring. In fact, it tends to make me look a bit – dare I say it – bland… Of course, there are lots of women out there who look fabulous in black and white, but I will never be one of them. No, my face needs colour. Which is why I always wear anything black and white with bright colour.
And red… Well, red is my colour, always has been. Although these days I tend to wear more pink and fuschia than red. Anyway, my point is, I can’t go wrong with red, and it’s time I add more red into my wardrobe.

Do you like black and white?
PS: Did you notice the fabulous new blog template? Take a look at some of the new features (the revamped ‘categories’ section makes it easier to find older posts that might be of interest to you). There are still a few tweaks here and there that I need to make, of course, but I’m quite happy about the new look.
