Well, it's been a few weeks since my last post - mainly as I've been ridiculously busy with the new term. 3rd year is scary!
Anyway, as recession blows its cold wind across the nation, my buying habits have been reduced to pretty much nil - especially I bought quite a few of the 'essentials' i was previously missing toward the end of the hols. My wardrobe is currently filled with fun bits and pieces - a mixture of favourites both new and old, and a medley of clothes that had been languishing in the back of my wardrobe back home. I'm not really having many sartorial crises, as my core wardrobe is pretty sorted, and my only problem is how freaking far the laundry is from my current digs!
However, I haven't had anything new to play around with for quite a number of weeks.
Yet today, the clothing gods smiled upon me, in the form of a few freebies given out by my friend who runs a creative space here in Cam. They had a make-do and mend event today (that I was unable to attend due to being at work... sob!) which left a number of clothes unwanted and unloved in the studio this evening! So, in return for some romantic advice ( - my proper use around here lol - ) I was allowed to rootle through the leftovers and found some plain totes, a fat square of fabric, three dresses (two of which require altering to sort bagginess in wierd places - can't help it that I'm HUGELY hourglass / slightly less weight on my hips after a month of weight gain due to stress-out yukkiness and torn cartilage-forced lack of exercise), a suede jacket, a red wool coat with black collar and a black knit halterneck with sparkly tie at the front... ALL FOR FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Yay! Right. Tomorrow, I work. Honest!
