SHOPPING SISTERS

Today, this was my facebook status:

"I love getting dolled up with my sister just to go to the shops, then trying on a million things and feeling very confident because she knows me so well and finds me the nicest things to wear. Despite walking in high shoes all day and coming home with burning feet, it was fun because we experienced it together. I love my sister." 

For anyone who has a sister and best friend rolled into one, you will understand just how good it feels to know this kind of bond.  Obviously my facebook status tells you what we got up to today, so I will try not to make this post too wordy. As usual, we got ourselves ready and, as usual, we took a great number of "vanity" shots in front of the mirror. Of course, only one made the cut:




As it is now summer and the world outside is a furnace, the Polar Bears of Australia make their way to air conditioned shopping centres. You know, 'cause it reminds them of home. This one was actually mechanical and moved as if begging me to give him a pat. I willingly obliged.


We did a lot of browsing but needed some sustenance in order to make wise purchases... Hello seafood and sparkling! Rach had the Salmon and Chips, I had Barramundi with Greek Salad.



Suitably energised, we went on our shopping rampage. Rachel played pack horse while I was on camera duty:


I can't show you everything we bought because I might spoil a few people's Christmas, but I can show you what we got our hot little hands on!







Our accessories were a steal from Diva; My neon shorts, black studded top and Rachel's jumpsuit were from Dotti; the sweetheart cut singlet was from Bardot. Rachel's incredible little shorts and sexy top in the last picture were from a brand called Kiki Kaka who I can't seem to find online. I don't think my pictures do any of these pieces justice so I'll have to try and capture them in another post. I'm thinking we'll bring out some of our new threads tomorrow night, to mark Rachel's last night here. I am going to be devastated so see her go! Though I said I wouldn't make this post too wordy (oops) I really want to share with you a quote that I think does a pretty good job of describing the bond between sisters. I don't think I could have put it better myself:

“Sister. She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink..." - Barbara Alpert

Do you have a sister? Are you as thick as thieves too?
