But but but! The other day, I got ready and thought, ‘I feel quite nice today!’ And then I got to work, and my colleagues said, ‘You look nice today!’ And then I got to lunchtime, looked in the mirror and thought ‘I look okay!’ And then I got home and thought ‘You do not look half bad, Sarah.’ So, cursing the terrible lighting in my room (damn you, winter!) I took some photos.
Dress - New Look
Tights - Tabio

I’ve always really loved the contrast of black with fair hair. I think a black alice band on blonde hair looks effortlessly chic. So when I came over all ginger, I decided to see if redheads could rock this look too. And they can! This little wire hairband from H&M goes really nicely, and because it's a tie, rather than a bow, it doesn't look too 'little-girl'. Mega comfy, too.
I got the dress in the New Look sale a couple of months back. It's a weird colour - I'd call it black, but it doesn't really LOOK black. But I think it is. And it's another dress that's all baggy on top which I think is kind of unflattering, but I really like it so I have decided not to care. Also, it was NINE POUNDS. Accessorised with thick blue tights and my favourite, rapidly falling apart boots, it wasn't a bad outfit for work, all told. Plus, magnetised nails! I don't care if it's trendy but think they look SO awesome.
I'm off to my work Christmas do tonight - just putting the finishing touches to my hair. I'm sure I'll have a few lovely party dresses to show you over the next few Fridays - I'm off to another do tomorrow! Ah, I love this time of year.
