Kaleidoscope

Hope the mercury hovering close to 40 degrees Celsius didn't spoil any festivities yesterday!




I am a great believer in the pointlessness of Boxing Day sales if you live in Melbourne. Frankly, it is very important my limbs stay attached to the rest of my body. This year, however, I was lucky enough to be interstates where shopping proved easier on the nerves, post-Christmas-Day.

I bought this gorgeous silk top and skirt separately (costing me less than $100 in total), when it occurred to me the bright colours of both the garments complement each other beautifully without being too garish.

BARGAIN!

Wearing Forever New one-shoulder silk top and pleated silk skirt, Orbit shoes, Plum Seduction Revlon nail lacquer.
