i must admit i haven't had the best few days..very tearful, down to a number of reasons, but am feeling a lot more positive today, as i have a busy weekend ahead of me again, which at least gives me plenty of other things to think about..
was having a route through one of my wardrobes this morning, and came across this dress i had bought from a vintage shop in london in january this year..totally love it, but still need to lose a couple of pounds before it will fit comfily enough to wear for a day at work, i have only worn it once so far, the day i bought it as we went to a gig that evening, and just remember it being a little tight on the waist..i LOVE vintage shopping for the quality and cuteness of the garments, but the sizing always makes me feel like a whale!!
in the end, today's outfit was a simple brown dress from h&m, a great buy at the time,but the first time i wore it i managed to smear makeup on it, which means there's a small pale brown mark i can't shift, and an oily patch, neither of which have washed out through numerous washes, so i always have to remember it needs covering up with a cardi..this purple one was from primark last winter but i have never worn it, so i decided it was time to take the tags off and try it out..i like it, although its a bit frustrating to do up as the buttons are only at the top, which makes it a bit cape-like and doesn't do much for the shape..
have teamed the whole lot with a pair of opaque turquoise tights, in true daisychain style, to pick up the detail in the cardi, and pearl and turquoise beads, purple flat shoes and a purple bangle..the leopard coat is my best charity shop find ever, it was £10, and i obviously thought it was faux fur, but having taken it to be repaired along the dodgy seams (i didn't want to try and do it myself, i was advised it was genuine..and obviously worth far more than £10!)..i don't want to get into the whole fur debate, whilst i don't mind fur, i didn't actually think it was genuine when i bought it..
