I’m so pleased that it’s Friday. Not only is it Good Friday, but it’s the beginning of a long weekend. I get four days off work for Easter, and I am so excited. I’m planning on going to church (several times in fact, there are quite a few mass services over the Easter weekend) and spending loads of time catching up with family and friends who are in town for the holiday. I’d also like to make a start on some spring cleaning that’s been hanging over my head for quite a while.
Today is also Fancy Friday, a weekly event dreamed up by Dapper Dolly to encourage people to dress up at the end of the week. Fancy Friday gives Casual Friday a kick in the pants and lets glamour and gorgeousness reign supreme!
Today I was feeling a bit of a punk princess vibe. I know that I’ve worn this dress for Fancy Friday before, but I can’t help busting it out again. It really is one of my favourite wardrobe items.
I am wearing:
– Silver ear cuff
– Diamente stud earrings (inherited from my Nana)
– Black pearl necklace (inherited from my Nana)
– Black lace corset dress from 7 Angels.
– Black and white cardigan from Cotton On
– Black and purple 1/2 and 1/2 tights from Ambra
– Comic book platform heels from Betts
I had hoped to wear my hair in a sleek ponytail today. However it simply wouldn’t cooperate. Every time I smoothed one piece down, another strand would pop up in another spot. I decided to abandon the idea of a sleek do and just go with the messy texture my hair seemed determined to maintain.
Instead, I played around with this funky triple-decker bun. I really liked the way my hair turned out. Next time, I think I’ll really define the parts between the buns, tease out my hair even more and make it into a kind of faux-hawk style.
I’m so pleased that it’s cool enough to wear tights again. I do love a bit of fancy legwear, and it’s wonderful to be able to dip into my hosiery collection once again. These half-and-half tights are an old fave of mine, and they’ve lasted remarkably well through four years of regular wear.
I hope that you all have a wonderful long weekend. What do you have planned?
