Yup, I wore gold sequins to work this week. No-one batted an eyelid. Whether that means they're just used to me by now or that dress codes don't mean much in our place or probably both, I'm happy with it. I couldn't cope with having to have a whole separate wardrobe full of clothes for work. I begrudge spending money on sensible things as it is - having to fork out for boring workwear would be a step too far. And what would it to do to my lovely colleague who likes to start her day off by having a look at what ridiculous thing I've got on if I sat at my desk in black polyester and plain heels all the time? She'd find it as deeply dull as I did.
I don't like dull. I like impractically decorated shoes and monster tshirts.
Jacket - c/o French Connection
Tshirt - Hero and Cape
Skirt - H&M sale
Boots & gold flecked tights - Marks & Spencer
Ring - Dorothy Perkins sale
I'm so pleased with the tshirt. As soon as I saw the monster peeking out from behind green tissue paper, I knew it would be good. I had some slight issues with the previous tshirt I ordered from Hero and Cape - nothing to do with the quality, I just have too short a neck for a high round-neck collar! - and had to alter it a bit to suit my funny shape, but this one is great. They've expanded the product range and the new fabric and cut options are perfect. And the beauty of it being a small company is that the personal touch is there and they're happy to swap designs and tshirt styles if you ask them. Not that I needed it with this one, but it's always useful to have the option available.
Chloe and I were tshirt twins way back when and when I spotted the new moustachioed monster design, she was the first person I had to go "Have you seen it?!" to. She is a woman of excellent taste after all. Naturally we ended up expanding our twinny collection and both bought it. Doesn't she look lovely in it? Ah, to be that slim...
