Hello guys! Sorry for being quiet for a while... You must have been bored checking my blog without any exciting update. Well, dearies, what can I tell you? I've been so busy at work and I've not been very well this past 2 weeks. Monday last week, I came down with a horrible flu and I could never thank my boyfriend enough who has taken off work for 3 days to look after me and my son. Honey, loadsa thanks :) Your kindness will never be forgotten :)

Anyway, as Christmas season is fast appoaching and of course, we can let it slip away without celebrating it :). During the past 2 years, my boyfriend has been taking me to Freemason Christmas dinner, which of course we enjoy a lot :)... and of course for moi... it's a valid excuse to got out and find nice things to wear for the occasion. So, here I am, busy trying to put an outfit together for the night and as you probably know me... I start with the shoes... Well, I don't always start with the shoes but with anything that would grab my attention. It just happened that when I visited my favourite designer shop, they have just launched the new stuff for the season and these pair of Yves Saint Laurent shoes grabbed my atttention and decided that they were the ones I'd love to wear during the night.

So guys... browse away :)

They look bright red in this photo but they're not.

They were originally £350 but I used my £50 voucher to pay towards them so at the end, they only cost me £300... cool eh! Good thing about Flannels, is that for £1,000 you spend in the shop, you'll get rewarded a £50 voucher... How cool is that?

Actual colour

Certified killer heels indeed!

New pair of shoes means a visit to Vivienne Westwood boutique ;)

Closest match that I could find

There's my massive bag I bought (2 months ago?)

My Vivienne Westwood bags and purses collection (so far ;))

My Vivienne Westwood bags and purses collection alongside a few pairs of designer shoes (3 pairs Gucci, 2 pairs MiuMiu, 1 pair Prada, 1 pair Yves Saint Laurent. Where does it end? Well, I'd love a pair of Manolos and Louboutin... and another designer bag during our trip to London next week and that would wrap my 2008 up ;)) I'd post photos of my whole shoe and bag collection... promise... soon :)

My pretty little things before jumping back into their boxes ;)
Dust bags are sooo useful in taking care of nice things :)
You must be wondering... where's the dress? Well, I'd love a long black dress for the occasion but I'm struggling at the moment. I hit the shops and boutiques this afternoon and tried a few. One of them drowned me (it was extremely long... geez!), the other one didn't fit me... I found a lovely dress on the website but it wasn't out on the shops yet... and finally another one I've ordered online because they didn't have my size in the shop (the last one got snatched before I got there). At the moment, I'm still waiting to hear from them to find out whether they have it or not. Otherwise, I'll try my luck in London next week and I hope I'll find one eventually (well, before the party would be helpful). Gosh! I never thought finding the right dress would be this hard... Hmmm.... Wish me luck guys :)

Of course, Jamie... sis :) Believe me... there's nothing impossible in this world :)

Phoebe said...

LOVE the shoes! I wish I can wear that style off but I really, really can't. :p

Between Manolos and Louboutin, get the latter. They're sturdier and they're far more comfortable IMHO. ;)

I love how you keep your stuffs so neat :)

Gracie said...

Thank you Phoebe! I've been seeing a lot of ovely Louboutin shoes lately on fashion magazines so I'm hoping to find a nice pair next week :)...
