As good as a holiday

At this time of year, I could really do with a holiday. It's cold. It's gloomy. And, not to be a pessimist or anything, we all know it's only going to get worse before it gets better.

Manque call this the Prague jacket. Naturally, I wouldn't mind being in beautiful Prague right now, sitting outside a cafe enjoying the lovely spring/summer weather. Seeing as that is NOT going to happen, I am going to enjoy this jacket instead. It will at least keep me warm and looking good. And I can always imagine I am on holidays. Right?

More from Miss Wee

It's safe to say that we at Pussycat Black have a serious jewelry crush on Miss Wee. And no wonder. Chunky, silver brilliance that is tough and feminine at the same time. Who can stop at just one?

Neck art

We love these necklaces by Miss Wee. They're individually crafted, sterling silver and best of all - gorgeous! The hardest part, of course, is trying to decide between squares and triangles. Which do you prefer?

Not just any old t-dress

Q: What am I? I'm soft and super comfy? I stretch. I have sleeves that end just above the elbows and look good on just about everybody?

A: Did you say a t-shirt? Well you are almost right. But not quite. I am a basic t-dress with a twist. I am cut to drape and flatter and I have a lovely ruffle sleeve that sets me apart from my boring cousins. I am, of course, made by Kuwaii. Which means I am always fabulous.

Hey good lookin'

He good lookin', what you got cookin'? A nice woolly scarf, just for me? In orange? Yes please!

The cure

Anyone who rides a bike or catches early morning public transport understands the perils of cold hand/cold neck syndrome. It strikes almost instantly, somehow causing your extremities to feel simultaneously painful and numb. Horrible.

But never fear. Otto and Spike woolies are made right here in Brunswick. They will keep you warm and look fantastic. Genius.

Purple rain

This top/skirt combo by Jolet makes me want to dance. And hire out Purple Rain on DVD. And listen to the award-winning soundtrack. Party!

Sometimes, when I try to explain the investment-like nature of some of my shopping purchases my husband just rolls his eyes and leaves the room. But surely this vest by Kuwaii is a true investment piece that can be worn almost all year round and will continue to look fabulous for many years to come, until I pass it onto my daughter, who will love it just as much. So, from this perspective, it is not simply an investment, but a family heirloom. Which makes it priceless, don't you think?
