Today I decided to go with a gut feel after seeing a range of what is essentially costume jewellery that appealed to me.  I had considered signing up with Honey Accessories again, but had decided not to after viewing this range on Friday evening.  So first thing this morning, after gym and the school run, I called and made an appointment to see the consultant and signed up.  By all accounts, I’ll have my showcase by tomorrow and can get selling.

Shirtdress : Fashion Express | Leggings : Truwroths, OBR | Wedgeheel booties : Edgars, Kelso

Since I felt it appropriate to dress up a little smarter than my usual smart-casual attire and despite it being advised for women of my age not wear all black, I do still love it so much and sometimes succumb to its seductive ways.  It is one of the hardest habits to break once formed.

I even got around to painting my nails yesterday.
Pearls : NWJ | Bracelets : Contempo | Rings : Accessorize


I’m thinking that this dress is really too short without something underneath, so I’m going to have to find just the right length of skirt for spring time.

The weather here was absolutely gorgeous and warm today – Spring is on its way and I’m so thrilled, I love the feeling of rebirth and I’m already hitting gym at 5am and its warm and no jackets needed.

Yes indeed … life is wonderful.

    I LOVE all black and it looks really nice on you.

    Perhaps you can look for a pair of skinnies to wear it with … it is super cute and I really don’t think it is too short but then we would have to see it without anything underneath to make that decision.
