Rachel Gilbert Alisha Dress

I've been invited to what can only be described as THE London Society wedding of the year, so of course, I just had to buy a new dress for the main event.

There's no way I could get to the shops and even start to find something suitable, so I went straight to my best friend (net-a-porter!!) when it comes to shopping and found what I think might be my dream dress:

Rachel Gilbert Alisha Dress

It's a beautiful dusky-baby pink, with a fitted bodice embellished with silver gems and Swarovski crystals and daring cut-outs on the front and back and a fairy-tale chiffon skirt that is almost princess-like.

Just a little worried it's almost a little too close to being bridal...... what do you think? I need advice, people!

Jimmy Choo + UGGS = A Necessity!

Ok, first off, please let me say that this is not a blog entirely devoted to shoes.  But, I suppose my total obsession (my husband calls it a disease, but hey, what does he know!) means that shoes are going to feature very strongly on a regular basis.

And while I'm getting things off my chest, let me be the first to admit that until ten months ago, I didn't own a single pair of UGGS.  I just couldn't get my head around the ugliness of them, and being only 5'2", the complete lack of height-aiding qualities just put me right off.

Until I tried a pair that is.  And realised just HOW comfortable they are.

Now, it's got to the stage where my husband asks me if I'm ever going to take them off or "are you just going to go to bed in them?" But as I said before, what does he know?

Finally, it seems, my UGG-style dilemma has been solved, with the collaboration between Jimmy Choo and UGGS bringing a whole new range to my footwear horizon.

Witness the delectable-ness that IS the new UGGS!

My favourites!
These beauties are just the right length to wear with skirts or trousers, 
and feature a miriad of studs, rivets and grommets in silver and gold.

Kinda gotta love these too!
Fab to inject a bit of fun into a dreary, cold and grey winter day.

What do you think of these?  Would you spend the astronomical £495-£695 for them?

I confess.

I have been meaning to post on here all the fab goodies I bought in Bologna, and I've just realised that I haven't done it yet.  I hang my head in shame, all the while promising to make up for it.

Nothing in my defense except to say .... No, nothing bears up to scrutiny.

So, until I get snapping away with the camera to post photos of my shopping haul, here's a peek of what I think will have to be my summer shoes for next year.

Utterly romantic.  So wearable.  So adorably cute.  I am swooning.
