I had the most amazing weekend in Portugal, hanging out at our private villa complete with its own club with dry ice and light strobes. Totes amaze. I ate, drank, sunbathed, drank and returned a slightly broken woman.
But on to the interesting stuff. Last week my office had its first ever fancy dress day; Mad Men day. We played dress-up, drank lots of cocktails, ate a lot of cheese and pineapple on sticks. Hats, full dresses and suits were in. Jeans were out (except for those that forgot). And infidelity, drinking, smoking and sexual innuendos were rife. It was great.
In a last minute panic I bought this skirt suit on eBay. I wasn't sure what to expect but at £10 it wasn't going to be a great loss. Turns out it was perfect fit, aces. The only downside? I was sweating like a biatch all day, classy I know.
If you've got fine hair like me, trying to create a beehive is near-on impossible. Cue, the Bump-it. I was sent these ages ago for the blog and never used them because they felt a tad OTT. But for 60s fancy dress, ideal. You can buy them online here - and I most definitely recommend listening to the video. Totally cheesy and cringe-worth.
