At last, a frock!

Monday, 15 February 2010

So half of the title of this blog is about frocks - have I worn one yet? Not until today! This can be partially explained by the severe limitations of my wardrobe at present, but I suppose the rest of it is due to the fact that although I am the sort of person who really wants to wear dresses, I've always been a bit too lacking in confidence to actually do it. I prefer to hide in trousers. But I've been wearing leggings recently and really, tisn't too much of a jump from there to wearing tights. If I've got tights on, I might as well just wear a dress, right?

We had an event at work this afternoon for people who've donated towards a project we're running so I felt as if today was the day for dressing up a bit. So I wore:



Dress - Dorothy Perkins
Cardi - Matalan
Tights - M&S
Pearls - Bobijou


And yes, the cardi doesn't fit very well and I think the cut of the dress could be a bit more flattering, but it's a start!




That photo was taken entirely too early in the morning for my liking, hence me hiding my unmadeup face! I felt a bit better than usual today though, so took a pic later on at work. I wasn't feeling mardy but for some reason I look it!
