- The Dress.
- Navy blue wool skirt that I bought in Paris.
- Tatty Divine trapeze artist necklace.
- Brogues because I was sort of thinking 1940s this morning when I got dressed at 6am, even though they probably didn’t have strange trapeze artists necklaces back then.
I have a confession to make. I’m not wearing the Dress right now.
It’s 2.30pm and I am in comfortable house pyjamas. I got up at 6.30am as usual, walked to work as usual, but it was quite clear when I got there that I probably would have to go home. This cold is in the extreme snot and fatigue stage (sorry, just telling it like it is). Aside from being quite unpleasant for myself and those around me, I’m probably quite contagious. Although not life-threatening, it would be nice if my colleagues didn’t get this. So I’m at home feeling as weak as Tesco Value tea.
I did get up and get properly dressed though. The skirt is long and thick; perfect for flighty weather days like today. I bought it in Paris in November for 25€ and I don’t wear it as much as I should. I was going to “retire” it for the summer- wardrobe space is a precious commodity in this house- but the weather went all autumnal and I needed the warmth.
