Hullo! Would you like to be introduced to my new dress?
Isn't it awful? It's got a print like a hotel carpet, and it's ORANGE and BLUE. I found it on the very last page of the Joy sale, and it was love at first sight. Here it is on me:
I probably shouldn't wear it with blue tights, but I'm going to anyway, so there.
Despite the short hemline and overall polyesteriness of this dress, there is something very 1950s-child about it. The russety colour and the shape of the piping on the chest make me feel I should run around playing cowboys and indians, whilst those sticky-outy Star Trek cap sleeves give it a bit of '50s Atomic style. Cowboys and Spacemen in one.
So, essentially, I'm Toy Story 2 in a dress.
I removed the hair-bow before I went out. It was too girly, and I'm not a girl, I'm a cowboy!
AND, my 1950s-childhood cup of joy is overflowing because Cath Kidston has finally made my cowboy handbag dreams come true!
(Also, P.S., many thanks to everyone who said nice things to me following my last blahg post. I felt a bit twatty publishing it, but I'm glad I did. You're all nice, and I'm a lucky Bette.)
