fancy friday

So that was my first 5-day week for a long time (I know, no sympathy), and it’s completely taken it out of me. Can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to a weekend with next to no plans. Except X Factor. Obv. Ooh, and tonight I have plans to go to Conran & Company HQ for a BlogTour2011 event. Thanks so much to My Deco for the invitation, I can’t wait to meet the UK and US bloggers who are attending. Not only do we get to see Sir Terence Conran’s apartment, we’ll also be viewing the new contemporary collection for M&S… so exciting.
I think it’s next week that the new season of Gossip Girl starts (it had better be, I can’t wait much longer), so thought I’d focus on the stand-out star of the show, Blair Waldorf. Yes, Serena may have the hair and the legs, but Blair has the razor-sharp wit, the compassion and the brains that SVDW patently lacks. I also love that she embraces quirkier fashion choices, totally owning every one. Even K-Middy styles herself on Miss Waldorf. Probably a coincidence, but that’s what I like to think. And then there’s Blair and Chuck – basically Ross and Rachel 2.0, but with scheming. I cannot wait to see what this season will bring (both fashion and story-wise)… who’s with me?

I know earlier this week I posted an autumnal look (see here), but this outfit that Charlize Theron donned at an HTC launch event transported me right back to summer. The colour is amaze, and works so well with her colouring. Emerald is huge at the moment and I think it looks especially good with a touch of metallic. This look is slightly ‘throw on a kaftan for the beach’, but Charlize looks like a green goddess in this Chloé number, so she’s forgiven. As for my room of the week… well, for one it matches my blog’s background. Reason enough? Oh and the duvet/pillow combo is perfection, as is the wallpaper against the gold accents. There, I’ve justified it:

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