if there is anytime guaranteed to make people excessively generous, to the point of hindering common sense, it's christmas. i mean excessively generous in a stupid way. like that split second when i considered the possibility of sending a gift parcel to everyone. i very quickly shook this impossible idea from my head, but still thought it would be cool if everyone could share a little blogging present. not only for those who are part of the "fashion blogging community" but for readers and even the lurkers! the more the merrier, and all that.
i did consider getting lots of bloggers to all contribute a little something for an collaborative "cyber parcel", if you will, with a collage here, a video there and a stonking mix too.
alas, i'll admit, i did not have time to turn this idea into something tangible! but I did drop the dead fleurette a line to see if she would be up for contributing a homemade mix..
and indeed she was. so deaddiscofleurettheque (!) presents..

set replay and have it on in the background as you prep last minute mince pies on christmas eve right through to dancing on NYE. (because some of the songs will guarantee silly dancing!)
without getting all sentimental (ack, what the hell..) it's been a great year for us fashion bloggers, it's been great to see lots of newbies springing up.here's to 2009, let's hope that the gloomy R word (that's recession..) doesn't take too many prisoners, and speaking of the R word, maybe anna wintour will see the word retirement in a whole new light. and grab hold it of it with both hands?
