Image: Me, short, fat, pale skinned and with mid length dark hair. I'm wearing a black top, black & white patterned skirt, black cardigan with pearls, black tights & black boots. I have my hands on my hips and my legs apart. I am in my garden in front of black wood fence and various foliage/ornaments.

Hello hello hello! This week has been quite fun. Managed to see a lot of my favourite people, and adopt a new person into that category in the form of Kim! She’s on an impromptu trip to London so we met up for a drink and to look at artz. She’s too cute! We’re gonna go hang out with Carla on Monday too, so yay! It makes me so happy having met so many other bloggers now, I can honestly say I’ve loved every last one of you. You’re all GAWJUSS. Shall we talk about today’s outfit?

First of all, I want to apologise to Tracy. I’ve always been a huge supporter of Domino Dollhouse because it’s just so outrageous and kitsch and alternative, and then I use one of their lovely skirts in a bog standard outfit like this! Sometimes I wonder why I have a style blog any more. Maybe it’s my severe lack of confidence, but I feel so plain and ordinary when it comes to all the amazing fashion blogs I read. I can’t keep up!

What’s also sad is that while this outfit looks totally surreptitious, I had to muster up a fair bit of confidence to wear it out. Because I don’t have a defined waist, I never tuck my tops into skirts but because of the attached bow, I had to. So I was apprehensive wearing it out, even with the cardigan, and I did receive a few disapproving tuts from old ladies in Romford! Ah well. It’s a nice enough outfit, but sometimes I wish I had a clearer image… I dunno. This has turned into a right self indulgent wank, hasn’t it? I’ll stop now! x

    I WANT TO STEAL THE NECKLACE *_* it is so fucking cute…omg…okay ..keep calm xD
    I really like your outfit, I am a big fan of the simple idea of everything black together with an outstanding skirt! So I really don’t think you outfit is plain or whatever you said about it.
    But in some ways I feel the same lately, ike I lost my style or the way I want to look…I don’t even know what to buy, so I can understand your point and what you mean with wanting a more clear outfit…but I don’t really know what to you about it ://

    People tutted at you?! That’s ridiculous and awful and makes me so angry. UGH. You look amazing and I actually love this outfit. I think you really suit the skirt-tucked-into-top look and I love that you jazzed it up with lots of detail – the pearls on the cardi and the super adorable necklace!

    You look super cute! The skirt is lovely and theres nothing wrong with a casual outfit :) The necklace is so so sweet! And I’m sorry you couldn’t do whatever the awesome opportunity was.

    LOVE the necklace, and the whole outfit looks cool.

    Judgemental old ladies suck musty balls. Don’t worry about ’em.

    I love this outfit, and think the tucked in top looks gorgeous on you, sod the old ladies of Romford, I used to get tutted at for having pink hair, but they were just jealous! Their blue rinse wasn’t as pretty as mine ;)

    I love how you styled the skirt! I wouldn’t have paid it much attention on the website, probably because I don’t wear white, but how you styled it makes me want to go and buy it. That, to me, is what makes a great style blog & that is why I find you inspiring!

    You are concerned that you don’t have a defined waist? Neither did Princess Diana and she was a style icon. x
    PS LOVE the cardigan.

  • Carrie

    I think you look fantastic and if anyone tutted it was only cos they didn’t look as good. Love the shirt, really cute and the cardi is gorg. I think I would have added a red scarf in my hair and a funky bag. You look Devine Darlin!!!

    you look fantastic in this outfit so honestly, you shouldn’t worry – in some ways half the joy of skirts like that is that it gives you a waist, whether you have one naturally or not.

    i’m currently suffering a different sort of wardrobe problem – so many dresses now are cut for people with much shorter bodies than me, and a result the “waist” is my ribcage which looks distinctly odd.

    First of all, you were one of the first and most supportive blogger my shop ever had and could ever hope for!! You NEVER need to apologize to me…I truly appreciate everything you’ve done for me and you look freakin’ stunning in that piece!! <3 <3 Come to the states and hang it my dollhouse already, will ya?? <3 <3

    If you say you feel “plain and ordinary” then I definitely need to shut down my blog! You look gorgeous! Sophisticated, modern, stylish —

    I saw that skirt on DD’s website and wanted to order one for myself – the bow really makes it I think! The whole outfit looks great.

    I’ve also been admiring your hairstyle – so pretty on you!

    AH! That necklace!
