A belated Happy New Year to you all, Creatures.
How were your New Year's Celebrations? I welcomed in 2013 bopping away to 80s pop, dressed as the cookie monster. Classy.
Anyway, New Year, new start, and I have vowed this January to blog more vigilantly, date fewer mad people, and wear more excellent hats.
This one is totally ace. It's super warm and lovely and furry, and is excellent for hiding my face when I'm experiencing one of those "stop eating so many burgers and not getting any exercise and drinking too much wine" facial protests (i.e. today). It's vintage and on a 'long term loan' - I pinched it - from my friend J, who has the most comprehensive hat collection you could wish for.
The shirt's another vintage piece - my Granny bought it in the 50s in Hong Kong. Somehow, it managed to find its way into my wardrobe, and I am certainly not complaining.
I got the bag for my birthday two years ago, and it's perfect for my "throw everything in" attitude towards my handbags - I will never do one of those "what's in my handbag" posts, I would probably die of shame when you discovered how many old receipts I have.
The skirt and boots were Christmas pressies. The skirt is universally flattering, comfy, and goes with pretty much everything. I do love me some box pleats. The boots are wonderful - I get really excited when I lace them up and go out the door, like they're going to take me on a little adventure.

What are your New Year's Resolutions, or plans for 2013? And more importantly... How was your NYE?
Wishing you lots of love, luck, health and happiness, all year long!
