- Dress from…somewhere. Boohoo, maybe? The label inside says ‘Lila’. Any ideas anyone?
- Belt from Matalan
- Tights from H&M
- Shoes from H&M
I bought this dress thinking I’d style it very simply. Tan or black tights, black shoes, done. Quite Wednesday Adams. But when it arrived and I unpacked it, it was more 60s shaped than I’d first realised and I had a sudden urge for some mustard tights to wear with it. And voila, here it is. I wore it to walk into town today, and was highly entertained by the amount of ‘eye drop’ looks I recieved. You know the one, or at least you will if you’re a fan of something unusual on your bottom half. People walk past you, they look, and their eyes drop to your legs and their eyebrows go up. Funny stuff.
I think this dress would be really cute with white tights as well. I think that’ll be how I wear it next.
Now, as I’m sure lots of you know, November isn’t November anymore, it’s Movember. Men start the month clean-shaven, and then get sponsored to grow a moustache over November. It began as a way of raising awareness for prostate cancer, but it’s become more of an awareness raiser for men’s health in general. Either way, it’s a good cause, and a fun way to doing it. You can check out the site here to find out more, or to donate. If any of the men in your life are taking part, I strongly recommend you give them cash! Here’s my mo’, in honour of Movember.
I love this ring. It was an Ebay find from ages ago. Movember is one of those causes I always find some extra money for. Chris Wolstenholme from Muse is taking part for the third year running, and as always, he’s had a donation from me. He’s team captain of Team Muse, and last time I checked they had 246 members and had raised £1639. If you want to donate to Team Muse, their page is here.
November is also National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo is not national anymore, it’s an international, online writing event, where the aim is to write 50,000 words in November. I took part in NaNo for the first time when I was 15, and I’ve taken part in it on and off ever since. It’s a riot. The point is to shut off your inner editor for long enough to allow you to get a first draft on paper. After all, you can’t edit what you haven’t written. This year, I’m already behind! Turns out starting a new job on the same day as the first day of NaNo is not great for the word-count. I’m confident I can get caught up today though.
Speaking of the new job, it’s going pretty well so far I think. I’m enjoying it, anyway!
