coldlight 's Thoughts:

Heya guys, I really should update more but it’s kind of hassling to take pics of myself- my siblings don’t like taking pics of me and it’s hard to find good places to take pics around my house! plus even though I use the self timer, my tripod/camera are pretty dodgy… oh well :P

And argh since this outfit is all black I wanted a white background so it would stand out, but even in the most brightly lit room in my house the photos turned out very dark… so I had to photoshop a bit… now the quality is bad heh. DX

Anyway…. yes!! This is what i wore on Friday when we went out for my boyfriend’s 21st, we just went to a pub. I felt a bit overdressed, but seeing as I don’t get many chances to dress up, I might as well wear something nice! I think he enjoyed the night, although not that many people turned up and some people who said they were gonna come didn’t- but isn’t that always how it is! It was great anyway :)

What i’m wearing isn’t a dress as such, its actually a long black slip which i got from an op shop, but it was a bit long so I sewed the ends so it looks all ruched and drapey :) I love the lace on it!
And i’m also wearing a tiered ruffle skirt over it. Yay ruffles!!

I got these shoes a little while ago from an op shop… they are Nine West and they were new and never been worn! Only $8 :D yayy
