advent season: day twenty-four;


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..

click here for your christmas soundtrack. (midnight juggernautsmgmtthe specialsvampire weekendskream!nouvellevagueth0 buzzcockscut copybornruffians)

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'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?

Wow, I must admit that I am somewhat of a lurker up until this point.

But in the spirit of the season that has changed.

I somehow stumbled onto your blog mid-year and have been hooked ever since.

Thanks for all the great stuff, and all the best for the new years.

Merry Christmas!!
