Although I very much like mooching around the shops, I very rarely actually buy clothes.
However, with holidays and Himself's sister's wedding on the horizon and some vouchers burning a hole in my pocket, the last couple of weeks have been the exception to the rule.
First things first: I found a frock for the wedding!
It's about a gazillion times nicer In Real Life than in that photo, now. The material's beeyorriful: really gorgeous gold shimmery detail on a non-shimmery peachy pink background. Oh, and it's quite a bit longer on me than on this bird! The hemline falls just above my knees.
I'm going to see if I can have the straps removed - the top is boned so hopefully it'll be possible to wear it as a bandeau dress.
A couple of sundresses have come home with me recently also...
... together with a bird-print skirt that's not quite Miu Miu, but it'll have to do do...
... and an embellished white top that's lovely with jeans.
Accessories-wise, my collection of straw hats and flower rings has been expanded.
Although it's only for festivals and journeys in convertibles, I'm not convinced that the cowboy hat doesn't make me look like an eejit. If I can find a trilby that fits me properly it'll be a bring back, I think.
Last but not least, Himself is hopefully going to pick up this dress for me tomorrow...
And yes - it is far better looking in person!
