I wore this on Saturday to go for dinner and the opening night of a play with a lovely friend. In fact, the maitre d’ at the restaurant gave us free champagne because he thought we looked glamourous. Here’s to free alcohol for outfit approval!

The second outfit I wore yesterday - this one was to go to our first burlesque show of 2013! It was a great night with dinner first with some awesome showgirls, and then the show itself - which had a Great Gatsby theme. Sam won best dressed man, so I was pretty proud. I didn’t get a photo of him though … oops.

That’s right, today was the first Tumblr Twin Day of 2013, and our third one in total. Look at how cute Dani looks! (Check out her tumblr here.)

What I wore today.
I have no idea why I’ve been taking mirror outfit photos every day this week, but it probably has something to do with being alone in my office at the moment and the temptation is too great to resist. Plus, I’ve really liked my outfits this week. :)

I wore this dress to an awards show last night - the teal Lana from Pinup Girl Clothing. I wanted this dress for ages - PUG posted photos of it months before it was released, and I waited eagerly for it to happen. I snapped it up the second it became available and wore it for the first time last night. I have another dress in this style - a plain black one - so I knew the fit and quality would be amazing. However, what I wasn’t prepared for and was a little disappointed by when I first got it was the colour - it wasn’t the rich bluey teal that I expect but a true green. And the fireworks were much darker colours than I had anticipated. It didn’t meet the image I had in my mind, and after waiting so long I definitely felt disappointed. But I hung it up and waited a few days, and when I went to put it on last night I was much happier with it. I still wouldn’t say I absolutely love it, unfortunately. And I can say that about the black one in this style. It’s funny the effect our expectations can have on things.

For the first time in history I am ready with lots of time to spare, so I am posting tonight’s outfit photo BEFORE WE GO OUT. I hope this doesn’t bring about the end of the world or anything …
Anyway, here is the second of my new Betty Le Bonbon skirts. First of all, I freaking LOVE leopard print. I would leopard print ALL the things if I could. So of course when I saw that BLBB was making a leopard print swing skirt, I had to have one. Once again, the fit is great, the length is great, the style is great, the construction is great … um, let’s just say it is great. Great, great, great. I am one happy camper.
Funny thing though: I am going to a play tonight, and when I first thought about wearing this skirt with my Doris top from PUG, I was struck by the fact that it wouldn’t be dressy enough. I have become so accustomed to wearing fancier dresses whenever I go out, and saving skirts for day-to-day work wear, that the thought of wearing one for a night out felt like I was going to be too casual. Weird, I know. Clearly my idea of casual is not aligned with what most people consider casual. But I’m not bothered about it. However, if it progresses to the point where ball gowns become my casual, well … that might be sort of awesome! ha ha :)

This dress was my birthday present from my husband, and I finally wore it for my birthday yesterday. I love this dress - the print is absolutely spectacular, and the fit is fantastic. My only complaint - and I did mention this on here before - is that they used one of those crappy invisible zips which stick and generally don’t work as well as regular zips. I get that companies use those zips for aesthetic purposes, but it does sort of cheapen the product a bit when the zip doesn’t work properly or well. But, that aside, I was so excited to finally wear the dress, and felt great in it all day.

Here is one of the two dresses I bought with the prize I won in the Lady V London contest on Facebook a couple of weeks ago. I love it - I don’t have much in my closet in these colours as I tend to go for darker shades most of the time. I had to wear black tights with it because it is still cold enough here to necessitate it, so I paired it with the black belt and cardigan so it didn’t look too weird. But it will be great in the summer when I don’t have to wear tights, as the dress is made from a lovely light but fantastic quality cotton. And I just think it’s pretty. :)

Today’s outfit, the debut of my pretty new Fluevogs. Love them! Still need to stretch them out a bit across the top of my foot, but otherwise they are so comfy and lovely to look at. Sigh, Fluevogs. Maybe I could marry John Fluevog? Sam wouldn’t mind, I’m sure of it. :)
Also, holy crap, this is my 300th outfit post on I Like Pretty Clothes. Wow. I would feel excessive except that my blog is almost two years old (in September!) and there are a LOT of repeats in there. Take this outfit - other than the shoes, it’s all been seen before. :)
