Being an enthusiastic fan of OPI’s Bond collection, I had naturally been hankering after the amazing Man With The Golden Gun topcoat; a clear base with real 18k gold flecks. At £24.99 it was beyond my price range for a single bottle of nail varnish, so I was over the moon when I got it for my secret Santa gift this Christmas – thank you, Omar! *
Having seen some amazing combos for Skyfall and The Man With The Golden Gun, I decided to break it out yesterday for a trip to the Balmer Lawn hotel for a carvery lunch with my husband! We had our wedding reception here so it’s nice to come back – and I wore my new Amelia Check Doll Dress from Collectif too – you can see the gorgeous fabric in these photos:
I love this top coat! It’s so opulent and beautiful – although I do feel a bit rotten when I have to take it off… It’s like throwing money away!
(Delicious post-carvery Christmas pudding…)
I also had a trial run with my ’20s outfit for New Year – we’re doing a murder mystery and I’m going to be an AMERICAN FLAPPER. Very imaginative, I know… I’m wearing a navy Principles beaded dress with purple and gold Streamlined shoes from Miss L Fire (Christmas pressie from my hubbie), and I shall be wrapped in a dishevelled stole as per my character instructions. Here’s a bit of a preview:
What are you guys doing to celebrate tonight? Let me know what you’re planning to wear – and have a Happy New Year!
* Yep, we always have a post-present reveal to work out who gave who what!

One thought on “Bustin’ out the secret Santa gift: Skyfall and The Man With The Golden Gun”
I love the 20’s! I went hunting in vintage shops several time for that kinda dress, but never found any. Guess the shop owners keep hiding those goodies from the people. 😉 And btw, NICE SHOES! Love them! 🙂 Cheers from Stockholm/Sweden
