Oranges, Corals and Jewelled Collars

When I went shopping this week I was a bit disappointed to see that there is not a lot of new stock out anywhere. I’m sure it’s because all the sales have begun and on the plus side, there are some amazing bargains but judging by the amount of merchandise on sale and the prices I don’t think it’s been a very successful December for a few of the larger stores. Some of the newer colours around are at Cue and Witchery who are both doing beautiful corals, oranges and coppers which are lovely for mid summer and make such a striking display. I think they are colours that are flattering to just about any skin and hair colour. They are beautiful when worn together as slightly discordant tones of each other or when worn with white, khaki or denim. Dior, Mimco and Prada have beautiful new coral handbags and purses on display.

There are a lot of tops with heavily beaded or jeweled collars  which look amazing. With all the sales on at the moment, I  bought a discounted top from Cue for my daughter and embellished the collar with black bugle beads in a similar way to collars I have seen around this week.

I don’t want to sound like a sentimental greeting card but I think the arrival of a new year and all the possibilities that come with it should be acknowledged. I have always loved the lyrics to Bob Dylan’s Forever Young, I have heard them hundreds of times but I don’t always actually listen to them. I think they are lovely wishes to have for friends and family so I have included them below.

Forever Young.

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young

Happy New Year to everyone, I hope 2013 brings whatever it is you wish for.
