I must admit to largely failing to take proper outfit photos at Bestival. Partly because I was too busy frolicking around with my fellow bloggers and enjoying myself, partly because I was suffering from an extreme wardrobe crisis before I went and felt like an unstylish mess for most of the weekend. It wasn't all bad though. Look, closeups!
Wellies and glow sticks are always a winning combination.
As is double toile. God, I love this Threadless tshirt.
Char and I (aka Foxy and Badger) in our amazing Dorothy Perkins hats.
And don't forget the all important festival wristbands! They ran out as we arrived so we got blue glittery ones instead of the proper yellow ones.
Really though, Bestival is all about the fancy dress. The theme this year was Wildlife and I knew I wanted to be a ladybird. One slight problem: all ladybird fancy dress costumes are slutty. Do a google image search and see for yourself. So I made my own!
Et voila, one non-slutty ladybird.
Thanks Sarah for the photo!
It's very simple from the front, just a little black tshirt dress from H&M:
Then I got creative on the back with interfacing and hat fabric and netting and lots of glue and circles:
And I was very pleased to rediscover these earrings in my jewellery box. I thought I'd lost them.
Yay for fancy dress!
It was such an amazing weekend. Huge thanks again to Echo Falls for inviting me along and letting me bring Char - we both loved it!
