|I rolled the sleeves up later as my office was hot|
The dress is original 60's Marks& Spencer (with an old-style St Michaels label), and seems unworn. It has great seaming detail at the waist. I never feel I have much to wear with this except the odd cardigan, the colour seems hard to match - a real chocolate brown. Colours that I think will go just...don't. I was happy with this combo though! What else would you wear the dress with?

|First ever time I have worn these boots with a skirt...|
Then I partaaay-ed last night in my snakeprint jeans. Much fun & 80's dancing was had, and I got the last-but-one train home. I laid off the wine, as today I was meeting up with friends S & D in Cardiff (capital city of Wales). S is getting married next week, and as well as having a great big lunch, she picked out wedding shoes --- and um, we sewed her veil in John Lewis' teashop*! She had the embroidered fabric / netting, it just needing attaching to a hairgrip/comb thing. The other tea-drinkers were quite interested in our project. She looked beautiful :-)
*John Lewis is a big department store, for non-UK peeps.
I dressed for comfort and cheer in my favourite shirt -
|shirt - Aubin &Wills|
star-print scarf - Whistles
blue tshirt - Whistles
skinny jeans - Topshop
I made some great purchases - bottle green tights to go with this dress in particular, to get some winter-wear -

Also some crafty stuff, some Christmas presents ... aaaand some new footwear. Woof!
|hee hee, just couldn't resist|
What have you all been up to this weekend?
