The Candy Man Can

Dress, H&M
Cardigan, H&M
Ring on left, Local Jewelller, Ring on Right, Unknown

This dress has been a late revelation. At a mere £9.99 from H&M back in the midst of winter, I thought it was going to be too low to wear without something underneath it but when I pulled it on having mistaken it for something else in the wardrobe, it seems just fine on it's own. Hello easy-to-wear summer office staple.

Shoes, Primark
Ring, Unknown
I love a candy stripe, and for a girl who is generally known as "one of the lads" this liking for pink is probably a bit sugary...

Now onto the ring. You know that feeling. When you look at your jewellery (not the "proper stuff" just the everyday bits) and you realised that there's far too much of it. And some of it's broken and you'll never quite get round to "...just reattaching this bit..." and it's not organised by type, colour, occasion or anything else, and you know you've got to tidy it, organise it, and get rid of some of the bits that are knackered. Yeah, that. At the weekend I went through *that* cupboard, and as well as clearing out all my out of date contact lens solution and other such glamorous tasks, I did indeed tackle my jewellery. Cue several discoveries, things I'd *lost*, things I'd forgotten about, things I couldn't remember where I found them and this ring is one of those things. I'm pretty sure it's not from a highstreet store as it's hand painted, and I'm also pretty sure it's not from one of my trips abroad- I think it's older than that. Otherwise, I'm drawing a complete blank.

In other news, I have an interview!


I'm beyond pleased because it's for a virtually ideal position and a job I really desperately want. The only slight snag  is that I need to find something to wear, so am planning to head into a London the weekend before my interview on the Monday in order to find something suitable. Any tips on the best places to look for smart simple dresses that are not obscene in length or neckline? I was thinking of heading to Westfield, given I'll have a good excuse!
