In which there is high tea and a space suit of sorts

You know those clothes where you just feel gorgeous in them? You walk around and feel better about yourself as a person just because you are wearing them? That's how I felt today; perfectly myself in this outfit.

I have a brand new dress that is unashamedly inspired by all the fashion blogs I read and the trend for galaxy prints. Now I have one I think it is absolutely perfect. It goes with every colour! I can wear any accessory, scarf or jacket and they look just right because they bring out that particular spash of pink/yellow/electric blue in the print. So because I love it so much I am going to swamp you in photos.

I am actually wearing make-up in this which is something that I don't do too often. I go through phases and at the bottom wearing this dark red lipstick (which barely shows here) is my favourite thing.
Dress: New Look; Coat: charity shop; bag: New Look; Scarf: present; shoes: Blowfish

Hah! Messy-wind hair. And a bin in the background. I kept this photo in here despite the obviously terrible photograph elements, cause I like my face in it.

The top of these two bracelets is made up of mini Mah Jong tiles which is one of my favourite games. It's a nice thing to wear for an evening of gaming as well. If you've only played Mah Jong as a solitaire game you should totally try it as a four player proper game. It's so beautiful and elegant and also fun.

After my last post I thought it would be nice to share with you some of my Christmas gifts in action. I mentioned the deluge of fine dining items we received (tea set, cake stand etc.) and I felt it was only appropriate to invite some close friends round and have a foundue afternoon to welcome in the new year. I'm so glad we got to use it all and not have it be something left lying around in the back of a kitchen cupboard!
