Considering I’ve had the week from hell work-wise with next to no time for myself, I don’t quite know how I managed to make two outfit posts in the space of one weekend – but hey, they say if you want something done, ask a busy person. So, any road up, there’s a bit of a cat-centric theme this time around, not least since my two were hell bent on photo-bombing the proceedings.
In and out, up and down, on and off like a couple of furry hyperactive pinballs. I don’t know what got into them.
Of course the moment I shut the door after her, she was scratching to come straight back in again.
Anyway, the outfit…
Apart from my re-mixed shoes and my vintage Scandi pendant, the whole lot was thrifted. The ASOS Curve dress is actually a size 26 but I really love the way it fits. It reminds me a lot of the loose, low-waisted dresses I wore in the 80s. The longer length gives it a vaguely 30s feel, especially with the addition of the cardi. I’ve never thought to pair the two together before. I feel like I should be swanning about on a golf course in Le Touquet with a Pimms and a cad in plus fours.
I’m especially pleased with this white bangle which is the most recent addition to my ever expanding collection. I suspect it found its way into the Northampton branch of Mind because it weighs a ton but I love the asymmetrical shape of it and, for a quid, I certainly wasn’t going to leave it there.
I haven’t worn these catfish earrings for a while. They’re a little bit dainty for me but they’re also light and one of my piercings is unaccountably sore at the minute so I’m erring on the side of less-ouchy.
Still on the theme du jour I thought you might like to take a gander at my new bag too…
I was alerted to this by my facebook friend Lena in Norway. She offered to bid for it for me as the seller didn’t ship to the UK so although the bag itself only cost eight quid, by the time I’d paid the postage from China to Norway and Norway to here, it ended up being a hell of a lot more. But I think you’ll agree it needed to be mine and I don’t splash out on bags very often.
