A Darker Shade of Pale

During my extended weekend last week I went through the clothes packed away in the spare room and did a big swap over. It was great to discover things I’d forgotten about and now my wardrobe is rather full. Which is great but it’s funny too in that, now I have so many “new” choices I don’t know where to start.

So I thought I’d start simple today. Black, pearls, perfect. This dress is actually a bit of trouble in that it dyes my skin every time I wear it. I must have washed it about 25 times but without fail when I take it off I look like I have a blue/grey tattoo across my arms and back. It’s ok though, a good scrub in the shower and I’m back to my original pale state.

I’d like to take a moment to point out my super cool head band. My friend’s housemate made it for me for my birthday. Isn’t it great? I just love the way the little pieces of ribbon are sewed on, it reminds me of a bird’s nest. It totally adds a 30’s vibe to the whole look today too which is cool. I love it and I love the fact that people possess these wonderful hidden talents.

Headband: Gift
Dress: Was Mum’s

  1. That is a way cute dress. Most definitely.

  2. Cute headband... and that's hilarious that the dress dyes your skin. If they could make the dress in brown you could get a faux tan...just thinking...

  3. Wow! This looks great on you!
