I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date!

Oops, Wednesday already and I haven't blogged. Shame on me!

I had a great time in Worthing even though I didn't get much joy in the charity shops. I bought a New Look skirt for £4.30 which had such a nice floral pattern and is a good above-knee-but-not-too-short-for-work-length!

My friend Lucy's gorgeous daughter Daisy went on the carousel which was a lovely one...

And my friend Ben made the most amazing Mexican lasagne - tortillas instead of pasta and cheese, sweetcorn and black beans instead of mince - it was amazing! And pina colada ice cream with toasted coconut for pudding. I wish I lived at his house.

Then to a Mad Hatters tea party on Sunday, I wore the new blue dress from my last post along with my mini top hat - still no pictures of the hat to show you unfortunately! Instead here are some crazy-looking red scones...

Today I'm wearing this flamingo dress, along with this gorgeous bracelet that I picked up at the vintage fair the other weekend:

And my new spring coat, which was £20 down from £60 in the Dorothy Perkins sale.

It's such a nice bright colour, and it has a massive hood too, for when the weather is not so spring-like.

Lastly, I thought I'd show you what I wore last night because it's one of my favourite outfits, one of those things you can always fall back on. Apologies for me flashing my cleavage but it's very low-cut (and I flash my cleavage all the time anyway!) It's a sleeveless star dress from French Connection, some of their stuff is too small for me (and all of it is usually too expensive!) but I got this a few years ago in a sale and it's quite stretchy. I love it.

I also did quite heavy make-up, I don't usually do eyeliner under my eyelashes as well, but I think it looked ok, maybe it made me a bit stare-y but oh well! You can also see my pink fake pearl necklace which I got at the vintage fair too:

I love that French Connection fave on you! I am jealous of the Mexican lasagne, please post the recipe!

That mexican lasagne sounds amazing! I have got to have a go at trying to make that!
Love the colour of the new coat, very sensible having a hood as the British weather is always unpredictable!

Lauren said...

Bargainous coat! The description of the mexican lasagne has actually blew my mind. I can't even picture it. But I want it.

Alice said...

The Mexican lasagne sounds so delicious!
The coat is such a bargain, less than half price is seriously a good buy. And the pink pearls are lovely too xx

Loving the look of the under eye eyeliner and that bright coat suits you beautifully.
I do a veggie Mexican lasagne too, it's a mid-wek no money special! x

Alex said...

Oh I LOVE that star dress! So pretty and just perfect on you.

I'm jealous of your bargainous coat too. It's such a beautiful, vivid shade.
