Tonight I am celebrating finally feeling somewhat normal again with a dinner party for my boyfriend, my sister and her boyfriend. This is what I wore to make a last minute dash for ingredients and clean the heezy.
Vintage dress//Sportsgirl loafers//Diva bow earrings + bird's nest ring
I bought this dress from Etsy many moons ago (in fact, I think this is the last outfit post I did with it), and it's one of my favourites. I love the print and the cut of it and it fits like a dream. It makes me feel very Betty Draper; all I need now is a cigarette in hand and a strong drink (and a Don Draper, ideally). It might be a bit overdressed for a trip to Woolies to buy cherry tomatoes and flowers, but who cares?
One of the things I noticed when I was feeling down the past couple of weeks was that my wardrobe was being dragged down with me. Instead of making the effort to put on all my pretty dresses and go frolicking in the sunshine, I just dressed in leggings (eek!) and boring, oversized t-shirt dresses and slobbed around like it was nobody's business. Earlier this week I decided to put on one of my favourite vintage finds - a lurid green number with white polka dots - and I was amazed at how much it lifted my mood. I hope it doesn't sound shallow to say that clothes make you feel better, but I think they really do have a hand in changing your mood.
Anyway! I have waffled on for long enough and I have a dinner to prepare for. I will try and take some photos... I'm a bit ridiculously proud whenever I manage to cook something without it going horribly wrong. Fingers crossed!
