A New Frock

Friday, 7 May 2010

Should I class this as a late night post or a very early morning one? Hmmm, either way I'm tired, but I'm on an election-coverage watching marathon and this is helping keep me awake. In an ideal world I'd have got a proper amount of sleep last night but West Wing and my insomniac tendencies prevented that from happening, plus today was quite a busy, tiring day!

I did feel like I should frock it up to go and vote this morning. I ignored the grey, drizzly, damp weather and put on whatever the heck I wanted. Clearly I was so happy with the swishiness of the frock that I couldn't pose normally in it! It is lovely though, not just because it's a size 14 (woo hoo!) but because the detailing is fab and it looks and feels much better quality than is usual for Primark. And it took me from voting, to work, and then out for the evening to see John Bishop (who made me laugh till I cried).





Dress - Primark, via ebay
Cardi - DP
Tights - M&S (showing up quite blue in this pic - they're actually a similar shade to the cardi)
Shoes - Irregular Choice, via ebay
Necklace - birthday gift from a lovely pal


Hark at me attempting a smile in the last photo!

    I did vote but got so fed up of all the 'guessing' on TV that I was in bed by just after 10. Mind you, I was on the laptop for a while!
