Let the Clothes Do the Talking

Friday, 23 November 2012



Sometimes there really isn't very much to say about an outfit. Sometimes I like to natter on for many paragraphs and go off on wild tangents.  Not today.  Today I am knackered and soaked (weather: I hate you).  This post can therefore be neatly summed up in one sentence: here is a cherry print frock, here are some red shoes, here is my hair in a scraggy topknot because I went swimming at 7am before work and couldn't be faffed washing it.

But when the frock is this bold, you don't really need to talk much about it.  You just wear it and enjoy it.

Didn't quite manage to avoid the rain when taking the photos, grrrr.

Dress - vintage
