Just another reminder of how I need to 'domesticate' myself some more before I move out of home - I had no idea that linen shinks when you put it in the washing machine, and to my horror this dress came out looking like something you'd buy for a 3 year old... thankfully with a bit of effort I was able to stretch it out to something approximating its original dimensions. You wouldn't be able to tell now, would you?
I really am falling in love with 60s clothing. I think there may a mod inside me trying to break out! I don't have Twiggy's legs but A-line shifts are quite forgiving on my pear shape, and they're just so refreshingly easy and casual. I may just pop over to Illamasqua and invest in a good nude lipstick... watch this space!
