I knew the postman was arriving, as Inka had stirred from her snooze and was howling at the back door. I have to admit, I had forgotten what I had ordered. (Doing most of my shopping on the internet I never know what will be arriving!)
Though my brain kicked in when I saw the 'Pin Up Parade' ribbon on my maroon parcel, it's my new skirt!!
I first spotted this fancy fan Bettie Page skirt on Pin Up Parade a few months ago and with Christmas presents to buy I begrudgingly pushed it to the back of my mind. It was only until I was rearranging my wardrobe that I realised I am slightly lacking on winter skirts. (I'm lacking on winter clothes in general!) This one definitely fits my winter specifics....thick, heavy material, plenty of it and dark colours to pair with furs and sweaters.
Ok, I know I am not really dressed for winter on my top half, and I'm risking breaking my new years resolution! I am always complaining that I am cold and spend November-February hunched over trying to keep warm so my N.Y.R is to dress APPROPRIATELY. This is not a word I am familiar with, so I promise that for the next few months while the weather is still chilly, every outfit post will be wintery, not compromising on glamour and most importantly it will keep my goose-pimpled body warm and toasty!
I swear, this is going to be harder than it sounds!
Love as always, Lucille xx.
