I know I’ve kept you in suspense since Friday’s Post but now you can see what the skirt I altered looks like, in its’ finished beauty! It might not look drastically different, but it definitely has a nicer shape to it not. And also it actually fits which I suppose it the minimum you expect form any piece of clothing really! The first outfitting in my new skirt was to a cute Tea Party hosted by one of my buddies before we all go back to Uni. It was really sweet, literally! The host had laid out and entirety of biscuits, cupcakes, crumbles, brownies, EVERYTHING! I contributed with my own selection of Multi-coloured Butterfly Cupcakes. (Or Funny Bunnies as the Little Sister innocently has named them) My Bud must have literally spent DAYS baking all of the treats, no wonder she was heavily encouraging people to eat them all, HeHe!
To me Tea Parties connote ideas of vintage, pastel colours and little twee additions. I’m not gonna lie, every time a Tea Party is now mentioned I can’t help but think of the new Rimmel Stay Power foundation. All the pretty colourings, cake all over the place and Georgia May Jagger. Of course it was unlikely she was actually going to turn up, but you never know one Tea Party she might do! I based my outfit around paler colour tones to try and pretend it was a lovely end of summer day, with a cool breeze and a warm sun. But who was I kidding? It was absolutely pissing it down so we ‘whooped it up‘(nice one Synonym Suggester on Word) in the kitchen. I wanted to road test my new skirt to I wore this with a belt of my own, because as you can image the Size 20 belt it came with didn’t fit me so well! I think the belt is a nice change of colour in the pronominally blue outfit. I added my Aqua Blue Cropped Long Sleeve top to the look, since I wanted something long sleeved and warm. It’s a nice bolder colour addition I think. I went with silver jewellery as the necklace had the correct tones of blue to co-ordinate with the top. Lots of people like my Floral Headband/Crown so I popped that on in front of a sock bun. With my hair down I felt I looked a little short and it didn’t really work. I think it might have been because my hair is such a dark addition to the paler colour pallet I was working.
(Cheeky: I actually wore thick grey tights and black dolly shoes to the party since it was so cold and wet. But in an ideal world I would have kept my look like the pictures)
It was really nice to catch up with some old school and college buddies since I feel like I have been a total hermit this year and been snowed up the avalanche from Mount Art Foundation! Even had a good natter with the people you see around and at parties but you don’t really know. They were nice too!
The Spice Girls Are Back People! Well, maybe I should rephrase that. A Spice Girl is back! Mel B has premiered her new single For Once in My Life and it’s actually pretty funky. It’s fulfilling the Spice Girls shaped hole in my heart so I’m loving it. The ’This is how I feel’ at the beginning is a little cringe but apart from that it’s really dancey and has a super catchy chorus, ‘For once in my li-i-i-i-i-fe’. Mel B’s been away for so lone I forgot she even sang like that!
