Overknee Boots

If I buy one thing this season I hope that is is a pair of over knee thigh high boots. Granted I have 4 pairs of knee high boots already but can you really have too many? I love the idea of mainstream over knee and thigh high boots for us high street dwellers and am glad that the catwalks were so well received it meant that some were in the shops as early as July!

There are some fabulous flat turn over top ones, perfect for pirate liaisons and I simply love the shades of tan leather that are available. Also if its your cup of tea there are some fabulously saucy patent and PVC ones around just be careful with the style to avoid being mistaken for a lady of night. Which might just happen anyway and for some people that is the aim : D

Cosplay Ball

I was dead chuffed when I won this EBay item, it was really good value and a very cute dress, perfect for the cosplay ball. But when it arrived this morning, I was ecstatic : D

The fabric is exquisite shot silk and of very high quality, the colour is fabulous Emerald green (you either love or hate green) I simply adore it! I took in the waist in to 28" and added the bows on the sleeves, other wise this dress is simply perfect.

After rooting around in my costume jewellery box I found that perfect bronze/gold necklace and matched it with some small drop earrings. The earrings have pearls in so I will put a string of pearls in my hair and a cream wrap to match. [closer look]

My mother in law has a beautiful Thai silk scarf that I might borrow and I'll also wear my gold set navy cameo broach, although I'm not sure where on the dress, maybe pinned to my bag?
I doubt my mother will let me borrow her sapphire again >_> Not to fancy dress ball anyway!

I feel sorry for the bride-to-be who had to sell these dresses due to her bridesmaids falling pregnant and the amount of money she has lost; they cost over £200 new and I go this dress at a steal for £18. BUT I am dead chuffed with my newest aquisition, thank you so much Jude! With my hair up in a classy do, some perfectly shaped cream courts, wrap and clutch bag I am sure to be the Belle of the ball : )
