Hello So today, I am obviously like a pink powder puff, I guess Crossed with some kind of black belted ninja But, far more importantly Is my new dress Oh yes! It arrived today From British retro and I am so excited That was quite good I feel a bit proud of myself Oooh! An extra dress Ah, here it is. Here is my baby. Aww I’m really excited about this dress because I really, really wanted some kind of amazingly good Christmas dress Now particularly for our little trip to London, which is going to be amazing And I ordered this dress, but I ordered it in a size ten, which I thought was my size and it was just too big Okay, cut, while I actually try this on Oh my gosh I love it. What a beautiful cut this has on the top And very well supported, I must say. They’re held in there, there’s no bra Of course, if you do have larger breasts than mine, then you might want a little bit of extr support, I don’t know There’s boning in it, which, as we’ve previously discussed, with my Scoliosis doesn’t always work well Boning is very straight, my body is not. Nice curve, oh, what’s this lumpy weird lumpy bit? I really like the kind of Bardot top, get your little shoulders out Largely because my shoulders are particularly small, compared to the rest of me So this gives them a nice wider, open look But, Bardot top sleeves can kind of hurt I have on from Chi Chi clothing that is beautiful, it looks gorgeous but I wore it to a wedding and then by the end of the evening I took it off and I had these massive red scrape lines on my arm because it had been grabbing on so tightly to them I don’t always realise when something is quite tight, I kind of have to look at it afterwards I don’t have a lot of feeling. Or my feet, like I stood on a drawing pin once, and I just walked around and there was blood everywhere And my mother was like ‘What are you doing, take that out of your leg’ And I was like.. Oh I didn’t realise, it’s been a few hours But mainly, I don’t really care because it looks a bit like Grace Kelly I would go through any pain for Grace Kelly looks Now the skirt, I’m wearing with two petticoats Now, we’ve got a kind of stffer one underneath, a bit of crinoline and more of a flop on top So, you’re going to get a lot of range of movement in there, which is always lovely And it means that when you sit down, you can do the, ahhhh Erm, I feel like maybe I could accessorise this dress quite a few ways. Nice necklaces Put a little broach here Different belt I might put on a red belt I’ve only started wearing things that show my back since Claud came along Because she quite likes my back Whereas I’ve always thought, oh no Scoliosis, oh, it’s so ugly It’s not actually, it’s just my back Just my back. Even my weird little lumpy bit here Which I think makes me look like a dinosaur Specifically the one called Matilda in Robot Wars So far, the dress is looking pretty great But, I’m going to wear it all day tomorrow And then we will see what it is actually like Because you can’t tell if a dress is good or not until you’ve actually worn it All day long But so far absolute thumbs up Oh My God, I love it.
