Day 981 - But I Don't Really Like My Flow


Shoes: Pink bunny 'Abigail's Party' Irregular Choice 

Oh boy, what a boring and stressful weekend that was! I woke up to discover we'd lost our internet connection. Obviously I was stressing because the internet keeps me sane and is also my only link to the outside world. Add to that the fact I had several eBay listings ending over the weekend (and no way of contacting any winning bidders or sending their stuff), a Tumblr queue of posts all in a muddle and these gorgeous shoes I'd been lusting after forever that I was finally going to buy when I got paid, I was having a little inner panic. We got in touch with our ISP and they sorted it out in 24 hours (some 'line' trouble from their end), but it was a looong wait. I missed out on the shoes (yep, gutted), the Tumblr thing wasn't too much of a disaster and thankfully it was fixed before my eBay sales. My family have been a nightmare because they constantly moan about me being on the computer 'all the time' (they have no idea of the amount of work I do-it's not like I'm playing Candy Crush all day) so they thought I was acting like a bear with a sore head (I actually wasn't) and they hogged the TV all weekend. Obviously if I was able-bodied I'd have gutted my room, but even reading magazines was proving too tiring. So I just sat around, listening to my music!  Anyway, internet is back, family still annoying, but here's my outfit from last week. I wanted bright colours in a bid to cheer myself up, but it didn't really work.  Wish I could get out of this rut.

Wearing: Floral sun dress and black leggings Primark, black cardigan Red Herring at Debenhams, patent belt taken from another dress, flower hair clip ASOS.
Fit: True to size. Heel just over 4".
Comfort: No issues with these and easy to walk in.

  1. Sorry to hear you've had a horrid weekend- I can imagine you must have been really annoyed and frustrated- sorry about the shoes!! Loving this dress- SO sunny- reminds me of a Jenny Packham one I almost bought in the Debenhams sale and wished I had done- it was only £25 from £110!! I wanted to ask about Abigail's party- how high do they feel, imagining you are a heel-a-phobic like me, who only wears little ones- I realllly like a pair in Schuh- the navy lacy ones but worried they'd be too high! What do you think? Also, I wobble on stiletto style ones?! Any tips?x

    1. Bargain dress! Yeah I wanted something bright and sunny! They don't feel high at all to me, but would to you. I think they feel lower than the chunky perspex carved heel on loads of IC styles...but then they aren't as chunky, so more chance of being 'wobbly'. Schuh still do their year long returns don't they? Try them at home and see.

  2. Oh no! Poor you - I would go crazy too if my net didn't work!! Anyways, love your shoes and what a pretty dress . I like that it's unexpected - the shoes and dress don't match but they work together. What's your ebay page again? I was trying to find you (I just reactivated my account and I couldn't find you though)

    1. I wasn't sure if they clashed/worked or just clashed! It's kellybratz, just relisted some more things this weekend after a couple of good sales last week.

    and since before,I wanted ask you.
    I want you to make more youtube videos!
    I’m not so sure about your illness and was thinking maybe it would be too much but just wanted you to know I really enjoy your videos : )
    I liked how you didn’t edit much like that most of people does immediately.

    anyways!
    hope you found the nice way to make your mood up like you already did with listening to music.

    1. I know and I'm still not sure how to celebrate!! Ah, I got quite into doing YT vids at the start of last year, I rarely have time to sit and talk and then edit it all these days. That's so sweet that you like them, I'm glad. I always felt like nobody really watched them anyway!

  6. Love love love the print of these boots. I'm not spending this year so my shoe purchase options are few and far between but I have some credit for a site which is selling the new blue and pink versions of the AP boots and I'm wondering whether to go for one of those..

    1. I definitely need more AP's in my life. I always grow a bit 'tired' of them with the frequent releases, then I wear mine and realise how much I like them.
