Feeling brighter.

I’m definitely on the mend and putting it all down to the beetroot and ginger:)  The sun is also shining here.  That can’t be said for the North East – some of who were shoveling their cars out from snow this morning.  I’m hoping for a white Xmas – MM thinks I’m mad – he’d live in 80 degree heat all year if he could.  Me on the other hand – I love my seasons and the sweaters and boots that come with winter.

You all know how much I love my boots and after the Newburys and Pistols this year I can hardly justify any more.  The Isabel Marant Dickers have been on my radar for a while – but are they now just too passé?  There are so many copies available – far cheaper – and even Boden have now joined the band wagon.  I’ve never known them to add a new item mid season like this before – but yesterday the Boho boot suddenly appeared.  Now I quite like them – but wish the top was a little lower and more sculpted, like the Dicker, and that the tabs weren’t so big.  If anyone buys them let me know what you think of them – I might be tempted to try in the sale if there are still some left!

It’s quite a milestone for the blog today – I’ve bought a tripod!  No more blurry iPhone shots!  The tripod is fabulous but I won’t tell you how long it took me to figure out the timer on the camera – or how many times I nearly broke my neck dashing into position – suave, elegant, sophisticated – that’s me:)  Need to practice that one – I look quite startled too:)

I feel like I’m cheating today as I really am wearing a sort of sweat pant.  They are jersey harem pants that I got from ASOS last year – I love them – and to be honest I normally wear them with sandals in the summer – but their comfy waistband was beckoning me this morning.  I paired them with the Boden Hampton t-shirt from AW 2011 and the radish Must Have jumper from SS 2012 (available this season here).  I love this radish color – it is perfect for all year round.  The jersey scarf was a bargain in the SS sale – it’s first proper outing and I love it – so long and soft.  So I don’t feel like I’m giving up completely in my harem pants, I’ve styled my hair and I’m wearing my Rag & Bone Newbury boots:)

I’ve had a couple of emails/comments about my nail polish recently and this is Chanel Vamp – the lipstick it my favorite right now – Revlon Wine with Everything – the perfect subtle red.

    I think the Dickers styling is here to stay for a bit longer. I’m saying that because I have some Dicker style boots and I intend to wear them for as long as possible so I need everyone to think they are still in.

    Now I have to say, that tripod is doing its job. Can you tell me what model it is? I need to put it on my Christmas list for the other half. In addition – people keep saying they use a remote to take the pictures – something to help with the mad dashing and strike a pose scenario (been there, done that, got the weird pictures to show for it).

      Hi Sue!! The tripod is this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000V7AF8E/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01 – just $23 here! It is really light, tall and easy to set up. Thought about the remote but I don’t have one with my compact camera – it does however have a setting where it starts the timer only when you look straight at it – just discovered that – but it might result in more startled looks lol. I’m sure I will get more natural with it with practice!

      I’m sure the Dickers will be around for a while – just like the Newburys and Pistons – Net-a-porter are still selling out of them…where did you get yours from – I’ve seen some at Aldo and Steve Madden that I quite like the look of. xx

        Mine are these from Office shoes http://www.office.co.uk/womens/office/namesake/10/2388/30084/1/ but they ship only to the UK however these are almost identical from sarenza http://www.sarenza.co.uk/georgia-rose-bretchi-s786167-p0000059825 and they are cheaper at £68 but I don’t know what their shipping policies are for the US. Thanks for the info on the tripod – will take a nosey and see if its suitable. Drat about that remote – I don’t think my camera has the capability either and I have that setting where it locks on the face before taking a picture … but I have found other settings since. Trial and error. Trial and error. And bad pictures.

I love hearing your thoughts and I will reply as soon as I can if you have a specific question! If you prefer email you can contact me at Joanna@Poppys-Style.com. Thanks for taking the time to comment xx
