My current obsession this season has been turtle necks and if you follow me on Instagram (which you ALL DEFINITELY SHOULD), you would have spotted me wearing a turtle neck here, also here and here. Whether it be cashmere or a light merino wool to even a poly-blend, I love a good turtle neck underneath a smart fitted blazer, sport or leather jacket. It's a wonderful refined and effortless look—I love it!
Many dear friends of mine have commented on my "up to my neck" look, saying that I'm dressed so conservatively and more so like a Nun now rather than my usual scantily clad and plunging neckline ensembles that I apparently sport all year round—That is a false allegation! ...sorta.. *ahem*
On another note, I will be starting my wild rose cleanse in just about under a week today. So brace yourself because I am going to be a miserable cow thats going to tweet some nasty hungry angry things out of starvation and carbohydrate withdrawals on Twitter!

I've been sabotaged this past winter holiday.
I was gifted chocolate truffles instead of Chanel tweeds and shortbread cookies instead of Saint Laurent knits. I devoured every decadent and sugary treat presented to me and now I'm paying the price by not being able to fit into my black skinny jeans. I hate to say this but, I chose high-calorie instead of high-fashion...Monsieur Christian Dior & Madame Gabrielle Chanel would probably give me the biggest ashamed eye roll from the grave if they heard word of this.
My sacrilegious actions are unforgivable but I swear, on my brand new quilted red Chanel clutch that I will not start replacing my jeans and trousers for stretchy yoga-wear and sweatpants for comfort if I gain—Lord Forbid—any more weight.
Ergo, along with the ever so flattering, the colour black, I will also be sporting a lot of camouflage like my outfit in the photos above so my recent weight gain isn't as noticeable. Fake it to you make it? Well in this case, blend in till you can't see it!

Funny how someone who was just a stranger to you last year, can mean so much to you now and someone who meant so much last year, can just be a stranger now... It's amazing what a year can do.
So heres a toast from me to you all... many kisses to all the lovers and a middle finger to all the haters, let 2013, this brand new year, be one incredible ride up that will never stop.
