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.
Thank you piggy Ellen for the photos!
