Late to the party...

Monday, May 14, 2012

Life has been a little hectic recently and I missed the start of this challenge by Flying Saucer (discovered via Sophie's blog).

Would it be cheating to do this in chunks, a little late, instead of a daily post? You know I love a challenge and it seems like ages since my last challenge ended.

Day 1 - Your Wardrobe.
I recently wrote about my wardrobe overhaul for The Modern Girls Guide. I'm glad to say that I've managed to keep it neat and tidy since then (which is pretty amazing for me as I have been know to use the floor instead of the hangers in the wardrobe)

Day 2 - You have the most…
Bags - 41 and counting. Some I have had for years, some I have been talked in to buying by evil (brilliant) friends, others were gifts and I can spend hours trawling eBay for new additions.

Day 3 - Something you're wearing for the first time.
This cream jumper and using this tiny ASOS bag, I normally carry my world around with me so using this was a challenge in itself! As I was just popping into town I got on okay. All I needed was my purse, phone, keys and a lippy. I don't think I could use this on a normal day.

Day 4 - My favourite print.
Hands down, without a doubt my leopard print ballet flats. I'm a bit of a patternphobe so prints are limited in my wardrobe.

Day 5 - Your best bargain.
It doesn't look much on the hanger, Coast maxi dress, £20 via eBay (RRP £120). I've had this hanging in my wardrobe since October last year waiting for the 18th May when I will wearing it to a charity ball (there will be an outfit post).

Day 6 - Something out of your comfort zone but you love it.
Another eBay purchase this aztec maxi dress is divine. Pretty adventurous for a patternphobe don't you think? That said I haven't actually worn it yet...

Day 7 - A special occasion outfit.
The most recent special occasion for me was my Mum's 60th Birthday. I wore this ASOS maxi dress with a wide belt. On the day my hair looked a lot better and the party was in a local restaurant, not in a field of oil seed rape, but I can't help being drawn to that gorgeous yellow. Sooner or later it was going to feature in an outfit shot… and this may not be the last.

Day 8 - Something you forget you have but love.
This ring. So pretty!

Day 9 - The item at the top of your wishlist.
Choosing just one is hard. If pushed and shoved I would have to say this dress from Wrap. Sadly this has sold out in the blue so this will remain a wish.

So, here we go. I'm still a little behind, I'll try to catch up next week...
Hope you had a great weekend!

  1. Looking forward to see you in both maxis, that print is tres bold, good for you!
    I do think a party in a yellow field could really work though? Except the pollen is a nightmare to remove (speaking from experience).
    I think I need you to come and work your magic on my wardrobe although you would probably chuck out 80% of my stuff, ha!

    1. I'm so excited about wearing my dress to the ball on Friday, even better that it was such a bargain! And you should see my shoes - so pretty!

  2. I meant to do this as well but I just haven't had the get up and go to do it! Maybe I should catch up! I love your yellow field shot! It's soooo stunning!
    Oh and I love your little asos bag- it reminds me of the gorgeous blue one I won in your giveaway- I love my little bag, so thanks again for that!

    1. I think you could easily catch up.
      I'm glad you like your bag, it's nice to know it's being loved.

  3. Oh I think it's absolutely fine to do it in chunks - makes for a nice length blog post! I'm in actual awe of your wardrobe. Crikey.

  4. I can't believe how tidy your wardrobe is! Actually makes me ashamed of mine haha xx
