that Alice + Olivia dress and the fabulous Alexis Carrington Colby

Hello stylish people.

So this is the dress that I have been lusting after today.  You know how the saying goes; another day, another dress to lust after!

This beauty from net-a-porter has totally captured my heart though because the colours are so, so vivid.  The close-up shot is breathtakingly pretty is it not....oh can I have one, can I???  Marie Claire agree with me too, they've chosen it as one of their 40 best day dresses and you can see why, no??  Please don't all rush out and buy it until I have secured some funds...


....which probably means it won't be mine, not ever, but a girl can lust can't she? and it makes me happy just looking at the pretty colours in the picture.

Today was less stressful, unable to go out as road is being resurfaced right outside the house.  The steam roller (how cool are steam rollers?!) makes the whole house shake which is pretty funny.

Instead I have stayed in and worked on my final university assignment; I'm writing about the politics of soap opera and using Brookside and Dynasty as my examples.....this has meant totally guilt free watching of the most excellent Dynasty with the brilliant, brilliant and beautiful Joan Collins as Alexis.

Her first Alexis outfit ever!
She first appears at the start of Season 2, in court to testify against Blake, cue gasps of astonishment as she lifts the veil of her super cool hat...and the suit she is wearing has black panels down the side of the jacket and skirt, super, super 80's monochrome style Miss Alexis.  I can't find a full length picture but I will, believe me I will.

Hey there

Got something on your mind?

Did I make you laugh, cry or even spit feathers?

Tell me, tell me, I appreciate all feedback and love a good chat. I even turned that stupid word verification off to make it easier for you to do so.
