Happy New Year everyone! The first post of 2016, which was written just before I went out on New Year’s Eve (hence the stunning location two steps away from my house, with bonus drainpipe)… And had my first drink in a year, so I’m hoping I haven’t died by this point. That’s right folks, I kept one resolution (er, let’s stick to the one I did do) – I didn’t drink for a whole year. And then I eased myself back in by lifting the ban on NYE… This probably won’t have been my most sensible move.
Anyway, I certainly didn’t have any of the illness-related issues that drinking causes me all year, unsurprisingly, but I don’t think I want to be dry for the whole of 2016. I’ve got one of my best friend’s weddings coming up in a few months, after all 😀 I digress, as this isn’t a resolution post, it’s an outfit post, so let’s get to it…
This is what I wore for the biggest party night of the year – as I went to a Gatsby themed extravaganza, complete with 5-course meal, tap dancing, electro-swing and a pop-up casino! Me being me, I wasn’t going to miss a chance to go full-flapper…
Necklace: Claire’s (very old)
Dress: ‘Ziegfeld’ Frock and Frill
Stole: Miss Selfridge (similar)
Shoes: Schuh (very old)
What d’ya think? I have to say, wearing this wig makes me miss my old bob a bit. Back in my teens/early 20s, my hair was short and usually dyed red – I think one day I may go back to the chop!
I will be back soon with some more ‘usual’ outfit posts – and have lots in the works that I’m excited to share. 2016, I’m comin’ for ya!
