Once upon 2008

As we bid 2008 farewell, here are a list of things that have stood out - and stood out very clearly.

- Victoria's Secret

(though L disagrees because whenever she orders, she does NOT receive ANYTHING and has countlessly complained to VS employees about customer dissatisfaction. Ok L had to rant.)

- Prada's Infusion D'Iris

(we're both self-confessed addicts. We'd shower with them instead of water if it wasn't too expensive and/or insane.)

- Obama's win

(Probably the highlight. And the acceptance speech? Legendary.)

- Salmon pink

(finally makes a comeback!)

- Roland Mouret

(the genius of draping and pleats. We're totally coveting.)

- Harvey Nichols

(Our second home. L adds Saks - she's on a first-name basis with the crew upstairs.)

- Julia Quinn

(Thank you Julia for saving us on those long airplane trips and sleepless nights! We love the Bridgertons.)

- Fall for you by Secondhand Serenade

(stole our hearts whenever we'd turn on the radio. <3 )

- Chuck Bass

(A: Enough said. L: Um, I'd pass.)

- Economic Crisis

(Hello? Chanel bags in London when from 11,000 AED to 8,00 AED, excluding sale? Hell yeah we're coveting!)

- How I Met Your Mother

(legden..wait for it, wait for ittt, - and we hope you're not lactose intolerent - daaary!!)

- Zac Posen

(Zac tops our lists. Always.)

- Sarah Palin

(that prank call was even more memorable than her hairstyle.)

- 60's Party

(Ok. The most awesome party we've been to. Thanks Sharen!! <3 )

- Katy Perry

(We always were cherry chap-stick. Just sayin'.)

- Cam Gigandet

(*sigh*)
- Hermes Kelly

(forget Birkins, Kellys are all the rage.)

- Fashion blogs

(Where have we been all this time?)

- Law

(Very in interesting. And law jargon is even more interesting. Do you concur or do we grant a preliminary injunction? Or certiatori perhaps? We certainly concur to our own concurrance via stare decisis)

- Statement necklaces

(all the rage.)

- Loubotins

(always were in, will always stay in.)

- Ballet flats

(pefect for stashing them in your oversized bag for when you're strutting your stuff in major blister-inducing heels.)

- Alexander McQueen

(military is back, thanks to Mr.McQueen.)

- Agyness Deyn

(quirky name spelling and quirky style! A friend met her at the Atlantis opening and said she was extremely sweet. She wins brownie points!)

- Gladiator flats/heels

(whether we were dressed up or dressed down, gladiator heels always came to the rescue.)

- Navy blue nail polish

(forget black, navy blue is all the rage.)

- Statement rings

(strip away your rolexes and bracelets and only wear the ring.)

- Plain white tees

(and it's not the band we're talking about!)

- Gossip Girl

We <3 Blair
