An outfit from another glorious day. I went into town early before my lecture, got some library books, left my book bag in the bathroom with a note saying 'I'm not lost, just too heavy to carry. Please leave me be. Thank-you!' and it actually worked, got one of the best rose chocolate icies from Chocolate Bean I've ever had (extra rose!), bought a copy of On Art and Life from the Penguin Great Ideas series because I'd forgot my book and sat on a bench reading it before my lecture.
This is what happens when I try to pose differently but can't think of anything to do.
And this is what happens when Mum has the camera and won't stop clicking.
Outfit details: beret - gift; sunglasses - Dangerfield; dress - made by mum; belt - Valley Girl; bracelet - Rubi Shoes; socks - We Love Colors; shoes - Payless.
This dress was made using Dubarry 2630, the first vintage pattern mum has ever used for me. Anyway, it's pretty much the perfect '40s dress - at least, it's exactly what I've been looking for for both day-to-day wear and swing dancing so now I know that it looks really great made up I think I may have to have a few more.
As an aside, I had wanted to install a new comment system (was going to go with Intense Debate - I know people who've had trouble with Disqus) because I really hate how little I can interact with you using blogger's comment system. It's the main reason I'm so bad at replying to comments! But the instructions were from before blogger changed their whole layout and some of the instructions seemed impossible, now. Anyway, I don't really have the time at the moment to experiment with other systems so until then blogger's system will have to do. I try to answer any questions left in the comments, though, however if I've not answered one of yours please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'm infinitely more likely to get back to you that way.
