The reality was have a coffee (way hey!), a cheese scone, but no candles......
.......er but instead buy several scarves, a jacket, 3 jumpers and a necklace. Must try harder. In my defence I won't keep everything, I like to try it on at home before finally deciding.
Although on that note, I have a treat for you.....drum roll - decent photos!! (Well, decent-ish for me, i.e. you can just about make out the colours of the garments!)
I decided to have a little experimenting with changing room photography, the results as you'll see below, are variable. Some (changing rooms) are so dimly lit and garishly decorated you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a house of ill repute.
Whilst in one, and disrobed from the snood, it seemed a good opportunity to do the snood 'tutorial'. It's not really a tutorial. I lack finesse in many areas, and bunging a snood over my head is sadly one of them. If it ends up looking half decent this is due either to the ingenuity of the designer or some stroke of fortune not associated with my dressing skills.
So - what do you want first - the decent photos or the snood tutorial?
Let's go with the snood - to give everyone a good laugh.
Step 1 - put snood on top of head
Step 2 - pull down over head and face - (excuse shaky photo - literally taken blind!)
Step 3 - pull down to neck and hope it looks half decent - yep that'll do. Fiddling never improves matters (in my experience).
In no particular order a selection of photos from the day - some items were bought, some not...
|New Look biker style gilet - (not bought)|
|White Company flutter sleeve sweater - bought but will be going back - (what was I thinking?!)|
|Per Una coat - not bought but liked the look of it|
|New Look crystal scarf - bought but then hastily returned - the crystals turned out to be skulls (which I hate!!)|
|M&S Limited Collection trousers - looked OK on the hanger NOT BOUGHT - good grief!!|
|New Look sweater with crystal decoration - looked OK on the hanger. On? Er... I think not - looks like someone's sneezed over me|
|River Island Molly Coated Jeggings - not bought - refuse to pay £40 for one season wonder|
|H&M jacket - like - bought|
|New Look leopard print sweater - not bought, but hmmmm, may re-visit.|
So - what do you think... did I make the right choices?!
