It's the last day of the challenge! Today's heading is "the thing you're obsessed with at the moment".
It seems that 90s fashion is really 'in' just now, and as I love Doc Martens and all things grunge I'm getting quite into the spirit of things. I've picked up a couple of items lately that I think illustrate this:
Admittedly, I don't like slip dresses worn on their own, à la Kate Moss here, but rather with thick tights, a cardigan and some clunky shoes (and, you know, a bra). This Topshop one is therefore perfect as it isn't too short or sheer, and I got it reduced in the sale. I like that the back is a different pattern from the front. The ASOS 'Dino' platform trainers are awesome as they are not only chunky, but velvet! I ordered these in black in my usual size (UK 6) and they were far too small, so I'd recommend sizing up. So strange – I am always a 6! They're on their way back to ASOS just now so I'm hoping they'll have them in stock. The red ones above completely sold out, but thankfully they did restock them so I quickly ordered those as well. Patiently awaiting their arrival ...
This challenge has been a really fun way to do a bit more with my blog. I've gained some new followers, which is lovely, and I've been approached by an online clothing company to possibly feature some of their stock. :) Exciting times. I've also encountered some great blogs, particularly Toothpaste Kisses which is run by the lovely Hannah. Many thanks to Selina of Flying Saucer for this great idea.
