Perfect Presents

As most of you will recall, just before all my posts about MSFW 2012 I shared with you the fact that I had a recent birthday. today I thought I might share with you the perfect presents I received from the Fashion Mister, Fashion Sister From Another Mother and my dear friend Sarah from the Remodeling posts earlier in the year.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Rose Gold Watch

From the Fashion Mister: I had been lusting after this Marc by Marc Jacobs Rose Gold Watch but couldn’t justify buying myself a sixth watch. Luckily the Fashion Mister thought it made a perfect birthday present. It’s fantastic especially since I wear so much brown and all the earthy colours. It also meant while I was in Melbourne for MSFW 2012 I was compelled to buy some rose gold earrings and a cuff, which I will share with you all another day.

From the Fashion Sister From Another Mother: #114 is the version my Fashion Sister From Another Mother gave me. It’s really quite lovely and you can wear it five different ways…which I still need to learn! This little bird is from Rancho Designs by Michelle Smith. There are a few other pieces I would love to add to my collection. They are all sweet and simple.

From Sarah of Remodeling Sarah Fame: Did I mention to you all that while at MSFW Runway 2 it became apparent that tassels on handbags and clutches were a big deal? If not…it was! And to prove how far Sarah has come with her fashion skills, she had selected a lovely silver clip with a mustardy yellow tassel for me, as well as, a beautiful cotton scarf that will be perfect for the upcoming trip to Spain. I’ll be attaching the tassel to every handbag or clutch that I carry for the next couple of season or until I wear it out!

How lucky am I to have received such perfect presents!
