Are we here already? This week has sort of got away from me – quite a lot of late nights at work, I suppose, but mostly I’m not sure where the time went. I’m so relieved it’s Friday though – the week has sped by but I’m exhausted! Partly due to having less than 6 hours sleep last night. I need over 7 to function like a human.
I quickly snapped this outfit after work yesterday before trying on everything in my wardrobe to find something to wear to a tiny My Chemical Romance gig in Islington. The dress code was colour – in line with the Fabulous Killjoys – and I struggled! Florals wouldn’t really fit and it seems like my entire wardrobe is florals these days. I need to go to more gigs where the dress code is sexy librarian. (I ended up wearing a red skirt and bright blue top and a LOT of eyeliner.)
The gig was AMAZING though – seeing a band like that in such a small venue meant the atmosphere was electric. I ache all over today but am determined to get to more gigs now this year – my attitude of late has been ‘Well, I’m going to Glastonbury, that’s like all my gigs for the year in one!’ NOT THE SAME. Who’s with me? More jumping up and down getting elbowed in the face in grubby London venues please! (Also, it is such a good workout! I am going to invent moshaerobics. It will take off, you’ll see.)
Anyway, back to the outfit, which is about as far removed from a moshing ensemble as you can get. I picked up this dress in Primark last week, to celebrate payday finally arriving. I also picked up this bag. And these boots in New Look. I think even the tights are new. I love you, payday. I really like the dress – it reminds me a little of this number – and although I think the print is a bit ugly, I still like it. No one agrees with me when I say it’s ugly, even when I try to clarify that it’s ugly in a NICE way. Green is always one of those colours I get told that I should wear more of, especially with my reddish hair. Also, it’s a good length, which means that I can factor it into my work wardrobe. Love it.
It was surprisingly hard to get a good photos of these awesome boots.
Dress – Primark (£10)
Bag – Primark (£7)
Boots – New Look (£20)
This entry seems a little all over the place today – I think my tiredness is obvious. I’m off to dye my hair and paint my nails with my new nail polish that arrived yesterday. And then I’m going to watch a cheesy girlie romcom of no artistic merit whatsoever. And SLEEP.
I’m off to a couple of blogging events tomorrow, so I’ll be sure to report back next week. Have a good weekend everyone! Oh and so glad you all liked my cheesy playlist - I'll try and post more!
