You know that feeling when you have a wardrobe (or three) full to the brim with glorious clothes whilst at the same time thinking you have nothing to wear? Well it happens quite frequently for me! A couple of weeks back I was attending a Caribbean themed house warming party but I just couldn't think what to wear! Then it hit me. My wardrobes are packed full of colours, ranging from mint through to neon! I thought of those YouTube videos that are doing the rounds: Shopping my Stash!
I delved deep into the wild, overgrown jungles that are my wardrobes and managed to find a rare flower hidden within. This one shouldered, draped, tropical print dress. I've no idea how or why I purchased it, but hey it was perfect for the occasion.
I adore draped dresses, they just scream 'Grecian'! They are so wearable for just about anyone, the gathering and the folds of the fabric seemingly skim over the wearer's lumps and bumps giving the illusion of a perfect silhouette.

Apologies for the lack of photos, was running a little late so had to make a quick dash!
So this will be the last time you'll see the purpley, blue-y, indigo hair on the blog. It was fun while it lasted but it really didn't feel like me anymore, it just felt like the 15 year old me with my Vimto-coloured mop.
Purple hair is a lot easier to achieve than turquoise, for a nice purple colour you can get away with bleaching your hair to an orangey state and wacking on the dye at that point. With turquoise on the other hand, you need to go all the way down to a pale blonde verging on white in order to get a nice colour. This is extremely damaging to the hair and is therefore higher maintenance than the purple. Nevertheless, now that I'm back with the Turquoise I feel like myself again!
I really wanted to do a FOTD with this outfit but as time was of the essence, Alisa kindly volunteered to have a mugshot of her plastered onto the blog.
Lucky cow, with her big gorgeous green eyes, chiselled cheek bones, I'm jealous. What makes it even worse? This is her 'Just-woke' face.
