Yes, this was last month. I was planning to take a whole load of daily outfit photos recently, but then I got ill. I’m recovering now but not at a high level of snappy dressing yet.
Necklace – purple Mardi Gras beads brought back from…some place…by my grandparents
Bracelet – jewellery counter in Debenhams, originally bought to wear with my dress at my school Leavers’ Ball
Dress – Monsoon
Tights – Marks and Spencer
Slippers – The Disney Store (only place I can get slippers in my size!)
Unfortunately I took all my full-length photos and closeups of my make-up pointing the camera at the bathroom mirror…which I forgot to clean. The only clean part seems to be the bit I was pointing it at in the first photo above. I did get my sister to take some photos, but she, being arty-minded rather than blog-minded, just took a load of my legs and a couple of full length shots of my back.
Rule #3467 of Being A Fashion Blogger – CLEAN THE MIRROR BEFORE YOU TAKE PHOTOS
It is one of my favourite dresses, however, so I should be able to get a photo of the whole thing soon. Please, universe, let me remember to clean the mirror this time…

Can you set your camera to take a picture a minute or so after you click? Just set it on a solid surface and stand back.
I love your dress… anything green makes me happy. 😛

gilda – that is so frustrating!
~*~Shadow.Crystal~*~ – I’ve tried self-timer, but the pictures are never any good. I’m an appalling photographer and have to use the mirror so I can watch the screen on the camera! The dress isn’t actually green, just grey and black, the greenness is a testament to my awful camera (lack of) skills!
annie – Thanks!
