you're going to catch a cold, from the ice inside your soul..
clearly this is an outfit from a few weeks ago now, remember when it was sunny and warm enough to have bare arms?!
ah well, there are things to get excited about in november too, i love fireworks, and sparklers, and am planning a firework themed night with rangers this evening..well, we couldn't stretch to pricey firework displays but we will have sparklers - both real ones outside with plenty of layers on, and also edible ones, which i plan to make with chocolate fingers, dipped into hot water to melt the chocolate on the end, and then dipped into a bowl of sugar strands to make the 'sparkler' end.. as it's something one of the rainbow leaders i was talking to recently told me about, and she said her unit (rainbows are aged 5-7) loved to do, i'm pretty sure it's a safe bet that my rangers (aged 14-17) will love also; it's suprising the way there seems to be such an overlap in the things the two age groups like to do!
i have other fireworks plans for the weekend as well..one with the other ranger unit i am a member of, and also potentially at the weekend as well, once i have decided what to do with my weekend..so that's all quite exciting..
this dress is an oasis one, bought in the sale section at debenhams when i was in llandudno earlier in the summer with my mum and little sis - i love the style and quality of the oasis 'vintage belle' ranges, and they churn out a new pattern and print or three each year but ultimately keep the styles and shapes the same, which works for me, as i like them, so i do tend to keep my eye on the sale rails for them..this was down to £20 and i think it is definitely worth that - it's fully lined in beautiful green satin and has it's adjustable and/or removeable straps which i think is a nice touch..very pleased!
as for the shoes, i know i have recently posted here about the same pair but in another colour - i have got all three types of these as i really loved the style and print and i kept my eye out for them over the years, and managed to find them all at fairly bargain prices from ebay..i have a list of the irregular choice styles which i would like, although it can be a fruitless search for a long time, mainly as they're all old styles now and don't come up for sale very often..
