This time it is a '70s dres, thrifted aaaages ago (before Christmas) and worn for the first time today. I love the colours and the stripes, and the little buttons on the shoulders. As it was freezing, very windy and raining today, and so I am very pleased to have found some closed toe shoes: faux patent leather t-bars with mid-height heels, which are an awesome triangular shape (hello, Chloe) – I'm chuffed!
I wore this dress with a big knitted beret (for both warmth and hair hiding; I NEED to do something!) and, for a few moments at least, my cat. This is Babycat, also known as Little Lou Lou, and she isn't actually this enormous in real life – it's just that she is very fluffy, and this, perhaps like thick ribbed cream tights, is not necessarily that flattering in photos!
I was meant to go into town today, but decided instead to stay close to home. The furthest I ventured was to get a coffee, and then to the second hand book shop on the way home, where I picked up a biography on Nancy Wake (quite fitting for the Anzac weekend) – you can see it on the sofa. Actually, perhaps one of you can help me – I was going to town to get a compact foundation. I am after a really matt one, and, of course, really pale. I love my Chanel vital lumiere, but want a much less dewey effect for winter. Can you tell me any good ones?
music – the von bondies lack of communication – the whole album, it's amazing!
