Day 956 - I Came In Like A Wrecking Ball


Shoes: Black spot 'Chuckles' Irregular Choice 

So on Wednesday I went to Edinburgh with my Mum to see The Lion King at The Playhouse!  It's a long time since I've been to a show (think the last time was Notre Dame de Paris in London in 2001) and as you know I went to Edinburgh a few weeks ago, but hadn't been for years before that.  Obviously it was a very tiring trip for me and I'll be sore for a couple of weeks, but the novelty of getting to act almost 'normal' for a day is not lost on me.  We 'walked' it rather than taking the wheelchair and actually it was fine, it seems to have been the prolonged sitting that's caused more pain than the walking.  I was quite proud of myself for managing it all and the show was great.  Now, I'm used to getting stared at when out and about, but I (naively) figured if I was in a bigger city like Edinburgh, nobody would look twice.  Eh no, when you're wearing gnomes on your feet, everybody stares!  Honestly everywhere I went, people were gawping and wondering about my hair and shoes and outfit.  Having been on the receiving end of many a rude comment over the years, it was a pleasant change and it seems to have amused a lot of people that day (I even got a "loving your style doll" from a nutter with only two teeth) er yeah thanks!  Hello to the lovely girl that nearly knocked my Mum off the escalator, trying to ask where I got my shoes from! I hope you find yourself a pair : )

Wearing: Floral wiggle dress ASOS, leopard print fishnet tights House of Holland, red patent belt gift (Madeira), green charming bag Love Moschino, perspex necklace and hairband Limited Edition Primark, fox, parrot and frog rings Miss Selfridge, other ring my Grannys.
Fit: Very small and tight fitting, so I sized up. 4 1/2" heel, velcro strap fastening.
Comfort: No issues with these.

    1. Thank you. To be honest I didn't expect to love the gnomes as much as I do. They just go with everything.

    1. Excellent and so clever the way they use the stage, props and costumes.

  5. I sort of love these on you, but the gnomes just freak me out, which is what's put me off. I'm not a fan of gnomes. And the Santa ones are just too gnomeish as well, which is a shame.
    I have a very similar print (same, maybe) dress, but mine was a Tesco one, it looks lovely as a longer style x

    1. I LOVE the print of this dress. I keep forgetting I have the polka dot version too.
