You might remember I posted the other day about the play I went to see at the theatre which my friend was assistant director for, The Only Way Is Chelsea’s
. Well, I finally got round to posting the outfit I wore to it! I’d also worn this at work that day, so just stuck on a pair of heels for the evening to dress it up a bit more, although I do tend to wear these heels at work occasionally. It’s a pretty simple outfit, not one that needed a lot of thought, but it’s one of my favourites recently. I love burgundy and maroon, and I’m noticing that I have way too many things in that colour, particularly now autumn has come round and I realise I can’t wear a maroon jacket, with a maroon jumper, maroon skirt and maroon tights. Unfortunately my maroon leather skirt I’ve had for a few weeks but hadn’t yet worn decided the zip was broken when I went to put it on today, so I need to sort that out 🙁
Anyway, I bought this dress in Primark last weekend at the same time as my tartan dress
– I can’t resist wearing things as soon as I buy them, so the shorts and tartan trousers I bought that week have also been worn already! Unfortunately those trousers split (!) the first day I wore them, so they have been returned, but I have outfit photos I took in them before they split!
Also, how amazing is my new hand bag?! I got it from my parents for my birthday. I love it because it looks like a nice normal little satchel, then boom, you see the butterflies and dandelion clocks. There’s even a little butterfly landing on the strap, which excited Charley to no end when she spotted it at the self service checkout in WH Smith.
Cardigan: ASOS (exact one)
Floral Dress: Primark
Satchel: Birthday Present
In addition to the stuff in my blog sale, I’ve also started adding things on eBay, so please take a look
– I really need to get rid of things!! I’ve got 2 IKEA bags full of clothes, plus a box full of Ben’s too, that I need to sell, so help me out! I’ll be adding more over the coming week or so, so I’ll try to update you (on Twitter
probably) when I’ve got new things up.
I’m home alone again tonight with Ben in London agaaaain. He seems to go down for this project every week or so at the moment, which is really annoying 🙁 I am also terrible at being in a house by myself. I get kind of terrified of being in the dark as it is, so when I’m alone it makes things so much worse. For example, I already nearly spat out my water at my own reflection in the dark window because it shocked me so much. I’m so ridiculous. And it’s not even during the night I get scared! The other evening when I set off home from work, my car seat had been slid back further than it normally is. Now I still haven’t figured out that part of the mystery, considering that I had the keys in my bag next to my desk all day, so no one could have gone in, and it should have been locked. But anyway, the fact that my seat had been moved clearly meant to me that either: a) somebody was now in the boot of my car waiting for me to get onto country roads so they could attack me, or b) somebody had been into my car, not stolen anything (I had a pair of shoes in there too!) but had somehow hijacked the car so it would kill me. I even managed to back up both theories with a) a bang in the boot of the car when I went round a corner, and b) my clutch (as in the pedal, not handbag) was doing some weird things. Anyway, I got home and didn’t die, then got Ben to check the car. The ‘bang’ in the boot was the parcel shelf (ahem), and the clutch was fine. So don’t worry, no one hijacked the car. Unless it’s rigged to go off in like a week or something. Anyway, that was a typical story of how Sian’s imagination likes to get the better of her. And how Sian sometimes starts talking about herself in the third person, because she is just that cool.
