Day 25: Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig

Today I'm wearing:  The Dress Topshop denim dress. Yes I know I said I am 10 years too old for Topshop, but this is so 1970s housewife that it's hardly Topshop at all. My super warm and comfy Ecco ankle boots. Like slippers for the outdoors. Hoodie to keep the chill from my bones. I'm... Continue Reading →

Day 20: The Adventure of the Sacred Banana

Today I'm wearing: The Dress Pussy bow blouse the colour of mushroom soup. Earrings made of banana leaf. I'll admit, today's post isn't coming easy. The well of adventure is parched. The proud tower of my ability to blether about anything is crumbling. Today I got up, went to work, and then came home. I... Continue Reading →

Day 9&10: I’ve Found my Decade

  Last night I wore:  The Dress. Previously ankle length 70s dress. Made from 100% quality polyester, it came with a matching leatherette-backed belt. Platform clogs. Less painful than proper heels, but I did fall off them quite a bit. Wooden necklace from the Cats Protection League shop. Today is a bumper post, owing to... Continue Reading →

Day 5: Bear with me

Today I wore:  The Dress. Navy blue wool skirt that I bought in Paris. Tatty Divine trapeze artist necklace. Brogues because I was sort of thinking 1940s this morning when I got dressed at 6am, even though they probably didn't have strange trapeze artists necklaces back then.   I have a confession to make. I'm... Continue Reading →

Day 19: the yellow fever saga

Today I'm wearing: The Dress; a stripy pencil skirt from eBay that I only wear when near needles. My friend Lindy says I'm the most dramatic person she knows. I don't think this is strictly true; things just have a habit of happening to me. Take the vaccines for my African adventure: most people would arrange... Continue Reading →

Day 11: florally hacked off

Today I'm wearing: The Dress; a Caitlin'd 80s sundress; Mum's belt; tights on tights. Yesterday, the top dress was down to my ankles. I hacked 11 inches off overnight and haphazardly hemmed it back up. My sister was dead impressed this morning when I sauntered (only word for it really) into her room to survey... Continue Reading →

Day 24: a tribute to the Oscars

Hello readers, Today I'm wearing: The Dress; faux fur scarf; red and white Office T-bar heels; pencil skirt from Zara. The Oscars are tonight! I'm not much of a film connoisseur, but I thought I'd make an effort and dress up today. Therefore, I walked to the maths lab in fur and heels, with fancy hair,... Continue Reading →

Day 21: The real world

    Afternoon all, Today I'm wearing: The Dress; black and white weave blazer from H&M; vintage Primarni black satin bubble skirt (so many fashion buzzwords there!); brogues and tights and a t-shirt under the dress because it is still February and I'm not daft. Well hello there, reader. Today I have been thinking about... Continue Reading →
