New ASOS Curve dress. This one is on sale right now and is pretty cheap. I will admit it verges on somewhat tent-like and has a snake print that I never thought I would really like, but I do! It’s cute! Yay!

I forgot to take an outfit photo before I left for work this morning, and since it was the first time I had worn this top with this skirt and they go so fabulously together, I really needed a photo of it. So here, you get a terrible iPhone selfie in my work’s bathroom. But as an added bonus, you also get a terrible iPhone selfie of me trying on my new Lady Leona faux leopard fur swing coat from Collectif, which arrived today.

Frocktober the Thirtieth
I had to wear something a bit more sensible today because, once again, it is windy as shit. But I was a little sad about it because there are still so many awesome frocks in my closet that didn’t get worn during Frocktober.  I know, I know, tough shit, right? I’ll just make sure to wear the rest of them soonish, and maybe take some photos when I do! ;)
I have saved a Halloween-inspired frock for tomorrow - appropriate for the last day of Frocktober. :)
Oh, by the way, the necklace I’m wearing is the Dolly Parton necklace I ordered from Twisted Mind of Mine on August 30. It showed up yesterday, after two months of infrequent responses to my emails, assurances it had been sent, assurances that it hadn’t been sent but they would make a new one and it was sent on 3 October. I finally had to file a Paypal dispute, during which they once again said that it was sent, but this time on 21 October. Sure enough, when it arrived yesterday the postmark was 21 October. So they jerked me around for 2 months with no explanation and then only sent it after I filed a dispute. Shitty. And this is after I have bought tonnes of stuff from them and totally advocated for them on this blog. Needless to say, that shitty service just lost them a very good customer, though I will continue to wear the pieces I already have. But no more purchases, and no more plugs for their store.

Frocktober the Twenty-Ninth
Frocktober is almost over! It’s been super fun, and I realised that since I will be in Africa for nearly all of February, I won’t be able to participate in Fatshion February next year. So this has been a substitution for that, plus I’ve raised money for a good cause! Yay!

Frocktober the Twenty-Second
It was less windy yesterday, but I still thought it a good idea to wear leggings under my dress. I was traumatised by Monday.
I had a lovely evening last night with two lovely friends, good food, great conversation and a couple of bottles of wine.

Frocktober the Fourteenth
It was the most horrible day yesterday in the history of horrible days, at least in terms of the weather. 140 kms winds and horizontal rain, I thought I was going to  get blown away to Kansas! So I wore a dress that wouldn’t fly over my head and flash everyone.

Frocktober the Seventh

The long-awaited and coveted spiderweb Heidi dress from PUG is here and it is amazing. I had a 10 hour work day, and managed it just fine because I was wearing an awesome dress.

Frocktober the Fifth and Sixth

I’m putting these two days together because neither outfit is exciting enough to warrant its own post. I mean, the grey City Chic dress is cute, but I didn’t even accessorize it. I wore the same cami, leggings and shrug both days. It’s been a blah weekend.

Happy Three Year Anniversary of I Like Pretty Clothes!

On September 14, 2010, I posted my first outfit photo on this blog. Since then, I’ve posted 424 more. So, that explains why, when I had the bright idea to do an anniversary post of some of my favourite outfits of the past 3 years, it was so damn hard. So here are 10 outfits I really like from the last year.

And here’s to a bunch more years and even more outfits!

I went to a circus-themed anniversary party for a magazine last night (too much wine on a Wednesday!), so I thought it was the perfect excuse to wear my sequined peplum top from ASOS Curve. The party was right after work, so I had to wear this all day. Sequins should be mandatory work wear, because you can only be in a good mood - and super productive - when you are sparkly. 

The second photo is from the bathroom at work, because I realised that I didn’t get a shot with the cardigan on before I left and it looked super cute, so I had to show you guys.

Next time I wear this top, I’m going to go full boar and wear the matching skirt too!
