Disco Balls, Shaggy 80s Sweaters and Sweet Surprise Gifts (AKA: The Random Bits)

Ok first up, I bought a big disco ball. That one above actually. Why on earth, did I buy a big disco ball, you ask? You know, I really don't have a good answer for that one friends, so I'm just going with, "it's pretty" and leaving it at that... Cool?

Ok next I'm a wee bit obsessed with Isabel Marant's groovy shaggy sweaters, but (even if they were remotely within my price range, which they aren't) sadly it's just not a look I can pull off...



If, however, I did possess the sartorial chutzpa to don one, I'd snap up one of the Marant-esque numbers currently taking up residence in this etsy shop tout de suite. (Heather Taylor, I think you need to buy one, stat. You could totally rock either of these bad boys.)


And last (but definitely not least) I opened the mail a couple of days ago to this surprise drawing of the girlies by my lovely friend Kelly Christine. Just so, so sweet. Thanks Kelly. You made my month!

I bought the hugest long cardigan in Berlin from Stefanel, my new favourite store, it's like a big lion. I love it but the rest of my family are not that keen...My daughter and her friends burst out laughing when I picked them up -"what nationality is that cardigan?" they said. (I'm a kiwi so they always think I'm up to something strange...

I just purchased a disco ball from etsy... It is old and heavy and chipped... Just perfect. So fun!
