Up the rebels, and to hell with Burgundy

Apparently a reference to the Hundred Years War between the kingdoms of England and France, but if you're anything like me, you'll recognise the above quote from Carry On Doctor 

When I saw these suedette lace up boots on Ebay I knew I had to have them.  Everyone needs burgundy boots don't they?

I've had loads of comments on them, but most people think they're red.  Either way, I'm good with it. 

Anyway, I thought I'd team them with my newish charity shop acquisitions, floral gypsy style dress and longline burgundy cardigan

 I also wore my new favourite lipstick by a well known, affordable British brand fronted by a well known skanky supermodel.  Shade 107 (burgundy of course) in the matte variety.  I rather like it but it could do with being a teensy bit deeper in colour.

And all just to a bit of general running around, visiting, shopping etc.  In support with Curtise's most recent posts, I'm getting "dressed up" just for the sheer heck of it.

The pendant is actually a vintage style fobwatch.  It was my first ever Groupon purchase.  It arrived today and I love it

  10. I work from home, so I use to dress up as I'm going to a ballroom if I have to spend few hours out, I know that it sounds crazy, but I feel the need of being pretty and happy.I read Curtise's post and I'm totally agree with you both, an outfit is about our fantasies, our interests and about being an individual.
