Our third instalment of the Take10 challenge, a 70′s purple dress from Peacocks… it just keeps getting better, doesn’t it. You can read that last bit normally or with sarcasm glasses on, I mean it in both ways. It’s a pretty thing, sheer and all, and it’s about 60% less raised-eyebrow than the black lace vest so it is indeed much better; but it’s just.so.purple.and.frilly.and.girly. I categorize purple with clowns and period pains – always there, smirking at your life. At least you get to beat a clown with a bat at your 12th birthday party and they forgive you because they’re paid by our mothers. You also get to beat your period pain with a bat, THE MIGHTY IBUPROFEN BAT. So give me a weapon to beat this dress up with. Sorry Peacocks, this is not personal –  just being a neurotic blogger with one too many ?? before getting dressed.

I’ve done it, gone and joined a cult, my own little Band of Brothers. Take 10 is a group of ten UK bloggers who decided it was high time there was a UK version of the Delightful Dozen, and came together to form a virtual sisterhood, conjoined through the elastic band of skirt. Band of Sisters, or something like that. Lovely Sarah approached the nine and pitched the idea, and we all jumped in, every girl loves that spread in the magazine where one item is worn in several different ways.

Here’s us just saying hello, all 20 hands of ours waving. Role call! MJ from Dreaming Spires and Old Car Tyres, Sherin from HiFashionLeia from Leia’s Delights, Jen from Little Bird Fashion, Vicki from Magpie Girl, Adele from Molto Curiosa, Saskia from Not Just Medical, MOI, Sabine from Psynopsis, and Sarah from We Shop, Therefore We Are.
