Top: DIY (from old dress)
Tights feat. massive hole: Primark
This one here is what I wore on Tuesday when I met up with some friends who had just come back from a boozing holiday somewhere in Greece. We all met in good ol' Wetherspoons and it was nice catching up with everyone as I hadn't seen a lot of them for a while and there was much holiday gossip to be shared. So much so that I ended up staying from 2 till 10.
I'd been lusting after a bralet like this one and this one but after trying a couple on I was forced to accept the fact that my chest was just too big for them to suit me. When I tried on a size 10 it would fit on my rib cage but be too small on my chest but a 12 would fit on my chest and be too baggy elsewhere. After my disappointment was cast aside I remembered I had this lovely one that I'd made.
I helped one of my good friends clear out her wardrobe about a year ago and she let me rummage through the unwanted pile to see if there was anything that took my fancy. Now I'm definitely not one to pass up free clothes so I picked a fair few things, the dress that I used to make this top being one of them. It was a nice enough dress but it had a funny sort of 'bubble' skirt, which with my hips look horrendous on me. So I chopped it in half and hemmed it resulting in this lovely sort of bralet.

I'm going to make myself another cup of tea, perhaps in my octopus mug, and then catch up on all of the blog posts that I've missed. And there's a lot.
Also here's two music videos for you, must be your lucky day. The first is Delilah's version of Inside My Love that popped up this morning on Sunday Brunch and I'm in love with the video but I can't help think that Minnie's original vocals (second video) are just something you can't replace. Anyway, decide for yourself and let me know what you think.
