Skirt & Top - Miss Selfridge
Boots - Bank
Yesterday, after an enthusiastic afternoon's shopping, I bounded home with a skip in my step.
"Look!" I called to my flatmate, thrusting handful of green sequined jersey at her."Isn't this just the most AMAZING skirt you've ever seen in your life?"
Her response: "It looks like someone's seasicked glitter all over it."
It's the awkward situation most girls have been through. Blissfully happy with a new purchase and wholly in the honeymoon phase, we bring them home to introduce them to our friends and family a bag of nerves, heads awash with questions like, "Will they like it? Will they think we make a good match? Oh God, what if they like it too much and want to borrow it?"
Time and time again I've been met blank stares, quickly covered up with a hasty, "Well, it's not the sort of thing I'd wear...", after parading out my new favourite wares.
I've always had a deaf ear when it comes to listening to advice (You only have to look at my sentbox after a night of too many cocktails, or look at my abhorrent dating history to know I should listen to my friends more), but I think in the fashion stakes, it's perfectly acceptable to dance to the beat of your own drum, green glitter seasick or not.
