I've had a lovely few days this last week now that I'm free from exams! I went home at the weekend, then popped to the north east to see my sister and grandma, and managed to slip in a day's shopping... WOO! I even managed to see the Great Gatsby yesterday (wow, that is all!).
The costumes and accessories in Gatsby were stunning and really made me wish I had more confidence when it comes to party dresses! I have a few that I'm yet to wear (including one particularly sparkly one!) which I think I may have to leave until Christmas. However... it made me think that although certain occasions require certain types of outfit, the more wears you can get from and outfit the better and the less clothing you need to buy. Furthermore, if you do come to a bbq in something glittery, so what? Fashion is about creativity and expression, not just wearing whatever Cosmo and Vogue told us to. What clothes have you been saving in your wardrobe that you could bring out this week?
