Hello my dear friends, just want to wish you all a very:
Monthly Archives: December 2011
It has been raining a lot lately, but compared with last winter, a temperature between 3°C to 6°C is still warm and pleasant for December. <3
My company is having its annual Christmas dinner this evening. Instead of a party dress, I opt for this easy outfit. It’s nothing special than my daily wear, but definitely something I feel very comfortable and happy in. I guess this is the most important thing for me now. :-) Snood: Massimo Rebecchi, wool coat & necklace: COS, sweater: Knott Galerie Vie, skirt: Marni.
It’s the middle of December, have you done all your Christmas shopping? I recently discovered something lovely for a dear girl friend and would like to share. If you have friends/loved ones who adore flowers like my friend and me, a set of these knitted vases might make a wonderful gift. BTW, I got her the gray and white one, hope she’ll like them. :-)

Besides the wool sweater dresses, what I find extremely comfortable for a preggy belly are those sweater skirts with a elastic waistband. I picked up this canary yellow one at COS the other day and couldn’t be more happy with it. It is made of heavy thick wool. Cozy, chic and in such a cheerful hue, exactly what I need for the gloomy dark winter days. ;-)
Have a wonderful rest of the week! Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing, stay warm and happy this holiday season. <3Jacket: Raasta, brooch: Marni, Flats: Geox, the rest: COS.
Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? The weather was too dreadful for gift shopping or Christmas market strolling, so we went bowling with friends instead. It was fun but what pleased me even more was watching the movie afterwards: Gone Baby Gone.
Based on the book by Dennis Lehane, who is also the author of Mystic River (another my favorite), Gone Baby Gone tells a story of a missing child and the two private detectives who was hired to find her.
I’ve been always fond of movies that would deal with a complex and interesting plot than those unrealistic blockbusters, the beauty of Gone Baby Gone lies in a series of solid and unexpected twists but also forces moral questions onto you that have no easy right or wrong answers. It has many tense moments and the story is fascinating in that it makes you think about life’s choices.
Ben Affleck has done a great job in his directorial debut. Amy Ryan was brilliant in her role as an alcoholic, drug taking mother. Overall, Gone Baby Gone is a well done crime drama with a captivating story.
I know this is kinda boring, but wool sweater dresses have really become my grab-and-go basics these days. ;-)
