Tutu skirt


We’re having a (tea) party!

May 1, 2013

First of all, happy May Day! Although we are having the bank holiday next Monday, the 1st of May is the day of celebrating the arrival of Summer and in old Celtic times and the festival of Beltane. Sadly I won’t be dancing around the Maypole, instead I am at home recovering from yesterday’s surgery. Onward to the niceties…

Last Saturday me and some friends from work gathered at Chloe’s to celebrate Irene and Bex’s birthdays. Everyone contributed with something to eat, Laura prepared some activities and Tom brought the game Twister! We played treasure hunt, pass the parcel and Twister in the end. The parcel had animal masks in them, that we all happily wore. It was like a children’s party but who cares? We had a laugh and everyone loved it. The star of the party was baby Riley, brought in by his Mum Fiona, who at 9 months of age is a real gentleman. I swear I’ve never seen a baby as well behaved as little Riley Roo! I wish I could show you the photos of us. An all around good time was had, with a lot of food thrown in! Needless to say I didn’t eat anything else all day as I had to be rolled back home.

And what did I wear to the party? Details: Angora Sweater – South (via Ebay), Necklace – Anna Dello Russo for H&M, kindly purchased for me by my friend Fábio, Belt – H&M (also worn here), Tutu Skirt – Ebay (also worn here), Tights – Calzedonia (very old), Shoes – Irregular Choice (very old)

This is the jumper I am planning on applying some jewels to, in the same way I did here. Now that I’ve worn it without them, I’m not sure I want to add the jewels anymore. What do you think?

Hope you are having a good week.


I wanna rock and roll all night!

… and party every day! Another outfit that proved to be a little bit too much for the office. I don’t know if it was the KISS sweatshirt, the mint tutu skirt or the glittery golden boots. Most likely the combination of the three! I took these photos in the bathroom as I was shivering with cold when I got in (and the garden after all the snow and cold is looking dreadful but no one needs to know). Thankfully it seems like the weather is getting a tiny wee bit warmer, finally. 

Bitchface! I can has it!


Apologies for the scruffy hair – I’m trying to grow it but it looks awful. I feel like chopping it off every day! Fear not, I have a hair appointment in a couple of week’s time and I’ll feel a lot better about it as soon as it’s done.

Details of this amazing ensemble: Jacket – H&M , Cat ring and matching earrings – Betsey Johnson, Shirt – Thomas Pink, Mint Tulle Skirt – some random shop, all via Ebay. Glittery Golden Boots – Primark, KISS Sweatshirt and Bow – H&M (on sale!), Scarf – handmade by moi.

I hope you are having a wonderful Friday!
