I was able to take a case home this time with me (rather than my usual trick of trying to fit everything into my hand luggage) so I have lots of pretty dresses to wear over the holidays, and rather too many pairs of shoes, too - but space for me to potentially bring something back from the Solo sale, which has become something of a Roisin Christmas tradition! But I do have a backlog of outfits to show you so, yeah!
This is from a whole month ago! Sunday 18th November, to be precise...
Fever Phoenix dress and Irregular Choice Flick Flack shoes, with mustard tights from Primark
Ha ha, look how moody I look here! That wasn't at all intentional, I promise. Although by the end of this afternoon I WAS feeling a bit moody because these stupid tights kept rolling down and I had to take them off and put them in the bin. Which is annoying, because I love the colour! I may get some more mustard-coloured tights one of these days, but this reminded me just why wearing tights bugs me. I'm not sure how I feel about this dress, either. It's comfortable and pretty cute and everything, but I so rarely wear it because it's grey. But anyway, it was grand for whatever it was I was doing on that particular Sunday!
A more recent Sunday this time, Sunday 2nd December:
Fever Owl dress, red tights from Dorothy Perkins and Irregular Choice Little Miss Oh shoes
I didn't take a good photo of the print on this skirt, but it's little owls sitting in a tree by the light of a crescent moon. I like it because it reminds me very much of one of my favourite childhood books, The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson. It's a lovely, fun and comfortable dress to wear and an example of how patience can pay off when it comes to ebay. There are a few items in my wardrobe like this - things I have seen and either missed in the shop, or didn't want to pay the full price for. I had to wait over a year for this to pop up, but it did and for a mere £10. Good old ebay! This dress also looks cool with a petticoat underneath it as the skirt is quite voluminous, but for a lazy Sunday at home that didn't feel necessary or practical.
Anyway, that's a few that have been on the shelf for a while. I have more, but as I am on holiday and dedicated to leisure right now my brain is switching itself off! But I will be back in the week so I will see you all then.
