Day 800 - I Cannot Text You With A Drink In My Hand, Eh?

Shoes: Embellished suede courts Miu Miu 

Yesterday was my Grandads funeral and the wait from last week was starting to fill me with dread, I just wanted it to be over. It turned out to be pretty great though, well as good as such an occasion can be. All my cousins were there and it was the first time the 12 of us had been together since 1988 (which I can't believe was 25 years ago by the way). It was so lovely to see everyone and to celebrate my Grandads life really, as much as we'll miss him. He was very loved and other than the 'Alzheimer-years', he's had a really good life. Outfit wise, the shoes (and hair) were a hit with everyone and I was panicking that I would be forced into 'sensible' shoes because we had really heavy snow the day before (which didn't lie thankfully) and although it was icy in places, I was determined my lovely shoes would get an outing! They were super comfy all day too! The dress is another favourite, it's heavily beaded (weighs a ton!) and is really beautiful.

Wearing: Black beaded tea dress Pearl Lowe at Peacocks, embellished matador cardigan Swan by Clements Ribeiro, frog ring Miss Selfridge, key ring and black tights Primark, other rings my Grannys, earrings Mawi for ASOS.
Fit: True to size, if anything, a little long. Heel 4 1/2".
Comfort: No issues.

  3. Love to you and your family-treasure the happy memories. I am kicking myself as nearly got that dress on ebay a couple of weeks ago. Was £25 buy it now but by the time I got my credit card out someone else had nabbed it!! Am keeping my eyes open for another one now though it seems to be one of the popular ones that go for £££. Shoes are very pretty too.
