HIGH END & HIGH STREET
There's nothing better than mixing high fashion with high street.
I went to Selfridges to do a little shopping the other day when I came across this fabulous dress in the H&M section on the ground floor!
I took a step back, then ran for it and straight to the changing room praying to the fashion gods above that the cut and fit would make this dress a WOW!
.............they answered my prayers and off I went to pay £34.99:))
Such beautiful jewel tones for Autumn on this dress and I really liked the mixed prints giving the effect of it being a skirt and blouse.
I added my Gold buckle Hermes belt, threw on my beautiful Maison Michel Fedora & Voila :))

Necklace - A 'VOLD' family crest given 2 me by my late father-in-law.

It was such a JOY to have my beautiful niece, Karen visit from Bergen, Norway.
She's a wonderful girl and it was soon nice just to hang out with her and look at things from a teenagers perspective.
I can tell you this, she belongs in a completely different generation of ideas and I'm soon jealous, b'cos it's so much more fun, exciting, free and liberated.
What a breath of fresh air she was to have around.
Anyway we had a wonderful time going over our very best foundations of all time.
She has oily skin like me too :)))
And yes, she was my special guest on today's episode on my YouTube channel.
Some of my Super-Duper favourite foundations that I'm in love with right now!!!
Watch the full episode to see the rest.
Bobbi Brown Long wear finish foundation in Espresso
Giorgio Armani in Luminous Silk Foundation in shade #14
NARS, Sheer Glow foundation in Khartoum Dark5
I was soooooo IMPRESSED with the Nars cream foundation, that I almost bought two bottles in fear that for some crazy reason they would discontinue this particular colour.
The foundation also comes in Matte and in a compact powder!....Heaven.
