After the moment of practicality, I got really distracted and ended up buying this body-concious dress, which isn’t exactly the warmest thing in the world. You might remember me saying that I’m not really a slinky dress kind of person, but really I had other ideas for it…
Also bought this years beanie hat, that I will probably lose in the next few weeks. It’s a vicious circle.
I hope everyone had a good Halloween weekend! I went as Lady Gaga, which bemused people at first, but I love any excuse to dress a bit crazily and in this case become a slightly dodgy blonde. I wore the infamous Topshop sequinned hotpants over my jester tights, which was a liberating experience that I probably won’t be repeating. I was slightly dubious about the £4.99 wig at first, but I managed to tame it into something remotely Gaga-like. I was singing along (Cheryl Cole style) to Poker Face all night.
Here’s a close up of the make-up for all you beauty bloggers out there, courtesy of Mum. She also sourced the vintage jacket and belt I wore, which I shall almost certainly be borrowing whenever I want to channel a bit of 80s Dynasty. Next year I either want to go as a mime, or form a Anna Wintour/Grace Coddington double act with a fellow fashionista. Who’s with me?
