warm wrists and ready to waltz

My package from the Talent for Haiti auction has arrived - a beautiful cashmere scarf by Eilis Boyle, who very kindly included a pair of elegant wristwarmers.


The queue of parents outside the classroom waiting to collect their junior infants will be bowled over by my cosy chic look. Little do they know that I'm not just Pink Daughter's mother, I'm also an Evelyn Waugh character. Holy cigarette holders, Batman!

Or the wristwarmers would be stunning with an ivory silk ball gown, with the scarf secured round my shoulders by a pale pink rose. Is anyone holding a ball anytime soon? May I come?

  2. What a worthy cause you have contributed to Mise and that ball gown ensemble certainly sounds like the perfect thing to wear to the upcoming Irish Blog Awards. It should prove useful too, as I will recognise you instantly in your wrist warmers!

  4. Beuatiful. I have just recently learned that warming your wrists is all you need to do if you are cold. Something to do with limb proximity to heart.

  5. You're priceless, Mise. Can I also suggest a faux beauty-spot on the cheek bone to complete your elegant look?

  6. Yes with a gown but perfectly elegant with a long sleeved tee picking up sweetheart. It would brighten my day to see those luxurious (yes Simply Mel) items
    at the school yard.

  9. Mise, you will be the talk of the schoolyard, having set the bar for school pick-up chic. The ballgown will not doubt magically follow in manner of Disney...perhaps carried by bluebirds in their beaks? Meredy xo.

  10. I am oooohing and ahhhhing over here. So cute and so cozy! And so perfectly neutral - showing favoritism to neither pink daughter or blue daughter. Very diplomatic.
