Owned by the Arcadia Group. This high street chain was originally established over 90 years ago, Dorothy Perkins is now one of the biggest fashion retailers in the United Kingdom (UK), with nearly 600 UK stores and over 50 international outlets.

Dorothy Perkins

I used to think that Dorothy Perkins played second fiddle to the likes of Topshop, Warehouse, Oasis and Wallis amongst others, but not anymore.

DP, seems to have had a rethink and complete make-over in recent years. The result is, affordable pricing, up to the minute on trend fashion and now online shopping plus shipping overseas. So much choice!

Finally, I am getting more of the UK  high street stores to my home in the US.  I  have really missed you guys. So pardon me for cutting out now. I have some serous online shopping to complete.

CAbi: A New Experience in Shopping

Tags

I received an invitation on saturday to go to a CAbi event on Sunday afternoon 26th February. I was a little apprehensive at first not knowing where I was going, thank goodness for GPS! I still havent mastered the Atlanta area. I was heading for a very elite sub-division in Mableton, that is actually not far from where I live.

As I was the guest of my friend, I had not met the hostess or any of the other ladies invited for the ‘fashion show.’ Before setting out, I spent a little time on the CAbi website, so I had an idea of what to expect.

The philosophy of CAbi  is to bring high-quality clothing and the ultimate personal shopping experience directly to you, that, you can share with your girlfriends from the comfort of your own home.

CAbi was founded by Carol Anderson – the CA in CAbi. The bi stands for by invitation.

The story behind CAbi comes from Carol herself. After 25 years of selling her designer collections in Nordstrom and other upscale department stores and specialty boutiques across the country, Carol decided to bring her expertly designed clothing directly to the customer in the form of the ultimate personal shopping experience!

My friend and I were greeted at the front door by the hostess, who led us to where the party had already started. I was introduced to the CAbi Consultant called Nina, she was very bubbly and eager to introduce us to the CAbi collection. So, with a generous glass of wine in hand I took a front row seat to listen to Nina as she passionately  brought the collection out from under wraps and delivered her opening introductory speech to all friends and neighbours of the hostess, plus of course myself a CAbi virgin.

I was surprised and delighted by the quality of the clothes, the price and choices. The evening was so entertaining, particularly the trying on of the garments and swapping clothes!

The Spring 2012 clothing line had been designed for all the “Times of Your Life” which included: Girl Time, Quiet Time, Play Time, Quality Time, Summer Time, Spare Time, Over Time & Party Time!

Everyone was so friendly, the wine flowed, giggles, squeals, laughter and shrieks of enjoyment echoed from room to room, where ladies were trying on everything from the dress rail.

CAbi Spring Collection 2012

I ordered the Bree Jeans $89 – the fit and cut of these jeans are amazing. I generally struggle with finding Jeans that fit in all the right places, but these Bree Jeans molded themselves around my body and felt so comfortable. I also ordered the Petals Tank from the Party Time collection $69.

I can’t wait for the items to be delivered! Seriously now am a definite fan of CAbi.

There is also a fabulous cut out doll on the website that you can dress in any of the items in the catalogue. It is so cool! It reminds me of the cut out paper dolls we used to get in the girls magazines as a child. Go and see for yourself and have soon fun designing your personal outfit. 

 A sincere thanks to the CAbi hostess and her friends who made me so welcome and of course Nina and her colleague for the presentation, conversation, advice and fun!!

Did You Take The Leap?

So ladies did you pluck up courage to pucker up to the man in your life and propose today?

Leap Year Proposals

4 years ago my now husband was living and working in Atlanta Georgia, while I was living and working in the UK. We spoke every day on the telephone as well as emailing and texting each other. When February 29th came around I took the initiative to ……Propose!! After a little silence on the other end of the phone (I was thinking Oh No!), my man said ” I will have to think about it.” What!…. then he laughed and said “Of course I will,” Phew! sigh of relief!

We were married nearly a year later on January 2nd in a log cabin at The Forest Hills Resort, Dahlonega in the North Georgia Hills!

Now we live as you know in Georgia. So, today I asked him, if we weren’t already married, would he marry me again. Of course Mr Funny Man replied exactly the same as before!!! and then laughed again! Tonight we will have a lovely romantic dinner at home with a glass or two of something sparkly to celebrate.

That’s of course when he gets home and cooks!!!
