I still have a big problem moving around in this poufy skirt. These petticoats are lovely but so hard to get in and out of a taxi. I always find them bunching up awkwardly and have to fidget endless till I sort it out. Pulling it out in an undignified way… You know what I mean?

Yoohoooo! Howdy doody? It’s been a few days and I’ve been busy with a) crocheting Christmas gifts b) preparing for my GE WOMEN 10km run next Sunday c) getting ready for my holiday to watch Radiohead in Melbourne and d) Weddings weddings weddings (not mine of course)

Today’s WTFW is a new one from ASOS. It comes in black and pink, and I have BOTH! I love it so much!!! Unfortunately the pink one is in a small UK14 and really, it doesn’t fit, so… It’s gonna sit in my closet for a while. Well, until I get tired of it and give it away (or sell it) or finally lose enough weight to fit into it (HAH! Like that’d happen soon enough)

I have to wear this dress again! The weather is so dark and gloomy, it’s too difficult to get a good photo of this gorgeous dress

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Black rosette skater dress from ASOS

Accessories: Stack of 5 gold & silver metal bangles from FRENCH CONNECTION; Diamond & sapphire ring & pendant (gift from mum); OMEGA Seamaster bracelet watch

Footwear: Nude hidden wedge pumps from FROMTHEHEEL on eBay

Thanks to XH for taking these photos!
