the legend of the magical grey dress

There is a dress that gets passed around my friendship group.

Dont go thinking its like some fabulous out on the town kinda dress or anything. Its grey, its been washed about a million times, so its looking kinda old. Its a real plain jane of a dress. Little thin straps, made of cotton, not fitted at all, just some little buttons going down the front, at the top of it.Its basically a long kinda floaty at the bottom vest top.

But its the dress of legends!

dont be deceived by its ordinary looks-put it on and instantly it looks AMAZING. one size fits really-its been passed around a lot of people, all different sizes, and its fit and looked really good on everyone. its a lazy day dress. its a funky tights and pretty shoes kinda dress.its a beach dress, and its a 'too cool for school' student dress. Its the 'i dont know what to wear' dress. basically everyone loves it, and noone can find ANYTHING like it anywhere.

I guess its what people used to refer to as a 'wardrobe staple'

Right now its in my custody.Actually ive had it for ages, and negotiations are currently underway to decide who gets to take it to uni with them...

party time-'ladies pretty dress soiree!'

Im having a bit of a partay tomorrow night, to celebrate getting into Brunel...also, cos i very much need an occassion to wear my new motel anchor dress (see 'this weeks item of fashion lovliness') because basically it is the most BEAUTIFUL thing in the world!

I also got some amazing shoes in new look for a fiver!they are fab, gold, tack-tastic and all kinds of awsome!

so im hoping it will be a good night, and i wont end up stressing out, and worrying-i shall let everyone sort themselves out, and have a bluddy good time, hic hic :) Wish my best friend could come, who's up in Bristol, and my mate from London, but hey, never mind. I shall take lots of pictures, and attempt to get them on here somehow! oooh and everyone must wear a bow! am going to get everyone appropraite coloured ribbon and fashion them some sort of accessory, have bought some ballons am going to cover house in-could be a prob after, as will be terrified to burst them, but will look pretty! If anyone wants to bring kahlua to the festivities, they would be very much welcome to, haha, and am making some cute little fairy cakes with bows on the top! almost tempted to go with cheese and pineapple on sticks also...

One should totally wear all their favourite things at once!

I was feeling a bit down in the dumps earlier-totally unjustified as spent morning chosing 2 BEAUTIFUL motel dresses (which is the most massive treat ever-i love you bro!), and this was most agreeable...and they even had everything i wanted to try on (ie whole shop!) in my size!
Admitedly, should have spent morning in college, and then afternoon studying, but feel was good substitute to go see my lovely doc (have i mentioned before how much i love him!) and tell him my woes, and then go and buy pretty dresses...totally fair swap right?!After all, have to hang on to everybit of sanity i have left if the mothership coming to visit, and il be damned if i dont look shit-hot when she does come!I'll give her fat grrrr

anyways so was feeling miserable earlier, so put on beautiful new anchor dress, and ballet shoes, and my bow belt, and lots of my pretty jewells lol, was like putting ornaments on xmas tree-was a very odd assortment...but man i could feel the happiness radiating!hahahahaam v tempted to wear other new dress in bed tonight, because i really dont want to take it off....


Pretty things :)

<3 arent these lovely! look what i got in the motel sale as a reward for being clever!Thankyouuuu big bro!!!!!
Loves! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I've had such a fun evening!Got the old knitting out again...and before you ask, no i still havnt finished the christmas stockings, and yes, they dont look very much like stockings, but its the thought that counts!

Am very happy, as have discovered fantastic world of knitting videos on youtube (narrow minded old me never thought beyong looking up KOL videos to have a little perve on, and the fab freedom fighters vid's!) Am now addicted to watching 'Judy's knitting videos', they are brilliant-she even does slow versions for people that just dont get it!

shes the best! have a look at her channel, she also has a blog of fabulousness,
