So yeah, anyway, this is the dress — the first frock of Frocktober 2011 — previously obscured by my hideous orange parka (why do I own that thing?!).
The pic on the left is exactly what I wore in the stocked shot, just sans parka; the one on the right is what I actually wore out, as @caddalina may confirm if you ask her nicely. Maybe it’s cheating; maybe it’s not? I’m setting my own rules as I go! But as I said before, it’s unlikely The Malthouse would have let me in wearing gumboots, and it’s pretty much the coldest day of the year today. One thin pair of socks do not for warm legs/continued health make.
The dress is from Manque; I got it at their closing-down-the-physical-store warehouse sale for a super-massive reduction, as it was the last one left. It seemed worth it, as it was a) mega cheap, b) wool, with long sleeves and c) the kind of ‘frock’ I would wear outside of Frocktober.
