This is what I wore to my friend Yasmins Hen do last weekend. It was 70’s themed, and I’m not a big fan of fancy dress, and I also didn’t have much time to devote to coming up with something. I had bought this dress from a vintage clothing shop in Brighton a few months ago, purely because it reminded me of something that I used to have in my dressing up box when I was a little’un. I attempted to google the maker from the label and the company tracks back to the 70’s, so fingers crossed it is! It certainly needed a fair amount of sewing up of hems and split seams! But for £5 who can complain? I paired it with a primark delicate cardigan (I changed the buttons to printed wooden heart buttons from diamante nastyness) Obviously I could have looked a lot MORE like a hippy, however I dont like dressing up and I also would actually wear this out normally. fail. Yasmin however looked AMAZING in a sparkly mini dress, huge pink furry coat and big red eyelashes, with pink pointy ankle boots, very 70’s glam indeed!
You probably have not noticed that I have been posting less than normal, but in way of an explanation in case anyone has noticed… for the last month i’ve been feeling really ‘blah’ for want of a better word. I had lost all motivation for everything, wedding planning, tidying the house, reading, even watching tv. I’ve also been having fairly strong headaches (I lasted till 10.30pm on the hen night, poor show!) my IBS has reared its ugly head again and I literally could sleep for england, although I didn’t ever feel refreshed when I woke up. Last weekend I found myself literally sat on the sofa for about an hour doing nothing but thinking about what I should be doing but not doing it. Then feeling depressed because I hadn’t done it. Anyway, I’m not sure entirely what happened but I seem to have perked up a bit, I am back on track with the wedding planning (less than 4 months to go! will post about it soon) and am thinking about hiring a cleaner. I sound so bloody yuppyish but seriously, I hate cleaning and it would make me so much happier not to have to do it.
Anyway, consider me pulled together. Hopefully. I have a week off work from the 7th August, so we’ve planned a little road trip to Scotland (hardly little!!!!) for Yasmins wedding and we’re going via Liverpool (tips for what to see please!) & the lake district to stay with my dad & step mum.
How do you kick your own arse into gear when you need to?
