Ooh, stick you!

Thanks for your responses on my last post re: Facebook. SO interesting to hear different opinions on it... It's kind of restored my faith in humanity a little bit that others see how harmful it can be. I was expecting a bit of backlash! :) Company Mag just came through the door and they've done a really good article on the pitfalls too. Worth a read for my fellow Social Network skeptics! 

In other news, I wore this to work a couple of days ago before it became too hot to wear clothes at all, let alone tights... I'm wearing my Celeste dress, courtesy of Motel (see what I did with the title there?) I wonder  when Motel will release the Daphne dress? The lighting is terrible in these photos, but the dress is quite sheer so I wore a Miss Selfridge strapless bandeau jersey thing underneath. Cannot wait until 1 week's time when I will have a garden and actual daylight to take photos in!! Did I just officially jinx the weather?


(Wearing my amazing Temporary Secretary cat necklace again, my trusty leopard print scarf from h&m and battered ol' desert boots from a chazza. Oh, and spotty Primark tights)

Trotting off to work in a bit. Working 1-10pm which is a touch unsociable! I'm going out with my work pals tomorrow night, which'll be fun, and then on Friday, I'm going to Manchester with Alex and his buds to see Man United! There was a spare ticket, so I decided to go along! What on earth does one wear to a footie game..? 

Enjoy the last of the sunshine, UK-ers! Rainy times tomorrow :(

  2. I once interviewed Daphne and Celeste for a TV programme - they were really nice wee girls. Unlike Atomic Kitten, who I interviewed back in the Katona era, who were absolutely unmanageable!

    You look great, by the way.

  6. You look so lovely in all black ! Sounds like you have a nice few days lined up. I have no idea what one wears to a footie game! (Apart from football shirts, but my guess is you don't own one of them!)

  8. Love your boots, need some like those in my life! & re. what to wear to a football game, I reckon that wearing the opposing teams shirt would make for an interesting time lol ;) other than that I'd say anything goes as all eyes will be on the footy. You look great btw :) x

  13. I guess a Man U Shirt would be the most appropriate but also kinda phony! I'd go for a skinny jeans, boots and a nice sleeveless shirt à la Topshop and a headscarf!

  20. Wear something light and comfy, it's really muggy and humid here in Manc and with sitting in a packed stadium with 60k+ people in it you'll bake! And don't forget your brolly, it's been threatening rain here for days!

  30. This dress is gorgeous and I love the idea of using a scarf instead of a belt! I might go and buy company magazine now, I found your last post and your views so interesting!:)

  31. This is a lovely look :)

    You're right, it is very sheer. £42 is ridiculous for thin material like that. Lucky you got it for free though. :)
