How do you choose which car to buy? To date, my approach has been to walk into a dealership with no intention of buying anything, then signing on the dotted line within thirty minutes and picking up a new car about a week later. Luckily this approach has worked out well for me for the past ten years or so, but this time around I want to actually put some thought into my purchase before I lay down my cold, hard cash (that could no doubt be better spent on shoes).
I need something small (that says I have no intention of exercising my womb for child-bearing purposes), European (because I have only ever driven German cars and have become accustomed to the indicators being on the left), preferably manual (for the farm girl in me who learnt to drive the ute for strategic gate management purposes at age 10) with heated leather seating (a must have for my dodgy back) and parking sensors (too reliant on them now to go without), and everything else that a modern car should come with these days. Oh, and it can't be ugly. What do you recommend? So far I've looked at BMW, Mercedes Benz and Alfa Romeo. Am considering also looking at Audi and Volvo. Seems like so much work for one little purchase, not to mention the time wasted being wowed by men with rubber-soled shoes and ostentatious cufflinks at car dealerships.
In other news, I was gifted some new pink specs to replace my badly aged Chanel glasses. I have done my best Blue Steel to model them for you:
I also overindulged in lilac last, last week:
Dress: Alannah Hill 'Hey Sailor!' Frock
Cardi: Alannah Hill 'Baby Baby Chips & Gravy' cardi
Hair thing: Alannah Hill
Shoes: Christian Louboutin
Brooch: Shag (hi, Jeremy!)
I don't know that the surgery chair full body perspective is the best look for me, but it's something different for you to feast your eyes on, at least. You lucky thing, you.
And here are some random pictures just to keep you updated, pictorially speaking, about the magnificent excitement of my life (...):
