i simply remember my favourite things, and then i don't feel so bad..
today's blog post is all about yesterday's real post..(and also my outfit)..
first of all, as i was ploughing my way through another stressful day at work, the post arrived with some lovely things to cheer me up!! the lovely, and clearly v talented Alex made me this pom pom scarf (she has done a post on how), which i'm trying to decide what to wear with, but looks lovely and snuggly for the cold days we seem to be having all of a sudden - i had to de-ice my windscreen this week for the first time!!
my second lovely item of post was a parcel from the lovely vicky of ladybug says as i was one of the lucky winnners of her giveaway!!
she wrote me a lovely card, and i won all these goodies, so i'm very excited! i love the print on the scarf..
as for yesterday's outfit, i was pleased when i found this vintage dress in the wardrobe, and it turned out that it fits a lot better than the last time i wore it, when it was a little tight around the waist - i do have some issues when it comes to shopping vintage; whilst i love it, i don't really have the figure for a lot of the lovely vintage dresses i come across, so i tend to end up feeling fairly elephanine..that said, i have managed to find some lovely pieces and it hasnt' put me off my love of vintage styles! i do also love this waiscoat, maybe one of my favourite ever primark finds, and there is also a close-up of the pixie boots, as the last pic wasn't very good..the ring is a primark bargain as well i think, and is currently being superglued back together as i managed to break it in two shortly after taking this pic ;S
as for the faux fur headband, it was down to £1 in primark, and whilst i#m concerned i look a little bit like i'm off to russia, i kinda like it..and it was cold with the roof down yday!
