Some girls love Gucci

I don't normally like it, but some of the jewellery really surprised me.

Pink sapphires, yes please.

This is a terrible picture, the necklace is much nicer in real life, i am quite attached to it in work, if only i didn't have to leave it behind me when i go. And it's a lovely warm yellow as well.

We had this ring in amethyst too and it's even nicer than this yellow quartz. Lovely.

They also used to do a collection of coloured stones as little insects - there is a picture here from a piece on sale on ebay, that was amazing but as far as i know it's been discontinued. What a pity.

Amazing Undies

On Saturday, the not-very-widely-publicised Sonia Rykiel for H&M underwear went on sale. And I went a bit mad. I had only had a brief look on the website beforehand and thought the stuff was ok but when i actually went in, the fabric and quality were really impressive. This is what I got.

The body goes fabulously well with my bargain find of the year (thanks to Lillian) Lanvin pants from Oxfam on George's St that I got for only €40. Wow.
