fancy friday

We made it to Friday! Hope you’ve had a good week. It’s been a busy one for me, one way or another – on Wednesday night I went to see Take That in concert, which was pretty damn uh-may-zing. The boys (or men… it’s not the Smash Hit Poll Winners Party any more!) showed what incredible performers they all are, and the atmosphere in Wembley stadium was beyond electric, especially when they played ‘Never Forget’ – it gave me goosebumps. After all these years, they’ve still got it! This weekend there’s no rest for the wicked, as I’m off to Nottingham for my friend Lucy’s hen do. I love spending time with my school friends… it may be 12 years since we left senior school, but we’re still as close as we ever were. Sensing what will surely go on this weekend, I have taken Monday off work. Not just a hat rack, my friend.

Now, did your jaw drop just a little bit when you saw Elie Saab’s Fall 2011 Couture Collection? Along with Marchesa and Chanel, I know for certain that Elie is going to produce something very special. These gowns were grouped in colour, graduating from light to dark, which gave an almost “ombre” effect as they were paraded up and down the catwalk. I can already imagine Hollywood’s A-list looking radiant in these ready-to-wear dresses – the question is, who will be the first? (My money’s on Rosie H-W in one of the gowns featuring a sizeable slit… just a hunch).

Onto ‘Look of the Week’, and I’ve gone for our own Emma Watson, because I’m partial to a ruffle and it’s the end of an era (so I hear – I can’t say I’m a Potter enthusiast). The dress is beautiful and as esquisite as her last Lopez number, the pumps are Chanel, and, well, the hair is a little Julia Roberts circa Hook, but we’ll let that go. At least she had the guts to crop her hair, which is more than can be said for me and my 1995 haircut. And my favourite room of the week has every element that makes me go weak at the knees – a pink/grey combo, a chandelier, window shutters, subways and an ornate floor. Done and done.

I hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you’re doing and wherever you may be…
