First of all I must wish all my beloved and dedicated followers a, somewhat belated, Merry Christmas! I've wanted to post this dress for far too long but since I finished school I've been so busy indulging in festive treats and staying away from home without any internet. I hope you all had a wonderful celebration and received lovely gifts.
I've been completely spoiled this year, I'm so grateful for all the thoughtful gifts I've received. I think I'll need a new bookshelf to house the stack of new books that I have to add to my library and perhaps we'll have to move all together in order to fit in all our new kitchen toys and scrumptious hamper.

Top of my list was this darling dress and I was so lucky to receive it as an early Christmas present from Urban Outfitters. I loved all the pieces in this collection and I'm so excited for the spring/summer 2010 collection. I've been swooning over it on ilovetba all weekend, in between drinking rioja and watching old films ofcourse.

This year we spent Christmas Day in England with my beaus family, unfortunatly it didn't actually snow on Christmas Day itself but there was still plenty on the ground to keep us feeling festive.


Adam's gorgeous neice, Tori and I on Christmas Day. Doesn't she have the most wonderful hair? I can only dream that one day, tight curls like that will stay in my fine hair.


How did you spend Christmas? Did it snow?
Did Father Christmas leave you something delightful under the tree?

  9. Cait,
    You are adorable, especially in that dress! I hate to date myself, but I was in London in the mid 60's when Twiggy was the IT Girl! I got my hair styled by Sassoon at his London Salon and thought I'd died and gone to heaven. We didn't have long tresses like your beautiful ones...we had short bobs. Bond Street was the Fashion happening place. I don't recall being into labels as much as your generation...we were more into styles. After that I was a Flight Attendant stationed in San Francisco during the hippy days and Haight Ashbury..but us Stews lived in the area where the Gays lived because it was safe and they were our friends. I now have a 28 year old son who is studying architecture like his Father. You are adorable! Wish you nothing but have oodles of talent girl! Urban Outfitters reminds me of my apartment in the late sixties in SFO!
    You go girl!
