The past week has since be tucked up in my sick bed, drinking lucozade like my life depended on it (awaiting the inevitable tooth crumbling by the way) and watching a LOT of 30 Rock. Thing is yesterday was my Christmas lunch with my mumshape and sisterling. Not one to turn down an excuse to dress up I cracked out something fancy for the occasion. I got my scarf from Vaslav and Lily from the charity raffle that morning and I was DYING to wear it, so went for some kimono wrap effect tucked in to belt naturally) – treating it as some sort of weird pashmina. I am in love with it. Silk chiffon, art deco gothy deliciousness which as we all know fits right in to my world view.
I don’t tend to crack out this dress again because it is in fact the shortest thing I own but it’s been a main stay in my wardrobe for years (I accosted it from my sister) and thought it would be nice to give it an airing. Pre-sale season I am all about rediscovering pieces in my wardrobe and wearing them. I always forget how much stuf I actually own (and how fantastic it is.)
There was no real hiding how ill I was yesterday (I took tea with my meal – mum obvo disappointed as she was all ready for a Cheryl and Claire winefest, which to be fair I was totally looking forward to) and having to get a good deal of my meal away in tupperware boxes (waste not want not and all that.) However the cracked jokes weren’t terrible and I did get an excuse to wear a daft hat. Always a plus. We opened some parcels (excuse: not seeing any of them over the festive period) and generally has a wee riot (before me curling in to a ball of snifling self pity.)
Thankfully the worse appears to be over. I can now actually breathe and my nose no longer needs to fall off (protip – eight hour cream has been a near constant companion the past few days.) I’m looking forward to playing dress up and eating all the things!
So for your festive season – are you the sort the likes to gussy themselves up all fancy, or are you team onsie?
