What: New Look black ankle boots
When: Tuesday, February 16
Where: Nowhere special
With: H&M prom dress, black long-sleeved t-shirt
Readers, take it from me: if you ever find youselves thinking, “Oh, hey, I think I will spin round for this photo, it’ll be fun,” don’t do it. Just don’t. Because you’ll make yourself feel really, really sick. And will end up with dozens of photos of your own knickers, from all those times when your skirt flew just a little TOO high. Let’s not even mention the fact that I spun so fast one of my arms apparently flew off. OMG, WHERE IS MY ARM?! (Also: I’m not actually waving at you all in the picture on the right – or not intentionally, anyway – but, um, hi anyway!)
Anyway. Nausea-inducing or not, this dress was made for spinning in. I got it for £5 in the H&M sale a couple of weeks ago, and even although it’s too big for me (I’ll be having it altered soon) and is clearly a summer dress, I couldn’t resist wearing it this week. I made it a little more wintery with these black New Look ankle boots, which aren’t particulalry exciting in themselves, but which have seen a lot of wear in the year or so I’ve owned them, and which are the sixth pair of shoes to be “rescued” in my Shoe Challenge.
Now I need to go and lie down…
(My arm is missing again! Aaaargh!)
