Purple Rain

Like the rest of the country, we did get a couple of days of "Indian Summer" but the sun, literally, does not shine on the North as yesterday we went back to more October appropriate rain.

Cue sweater dress.

Sweater Dress, Uniqlo
Jacket, Primark
Leggings, Primark
Necklace, WendyHouse
This Uniqlo beauty is a couple/3 years old and is part of the Merino Wool range. Although it's wool, it's actually not overbearingly hot for days like today where the temperature is kind of oddly inbetweeny. That said, with vest top under it and a jacket it's toasty cosy for those winter depths of cold and darkness. Oh... It's a really pretty colour too.

Had a bit of a try with my Sleek Pout Paints today. I won them from the lovely Eloise, along with some of her jewellery, but I'm always a bit wary of strong lip colours, They scare me. I think I just about managed the red, we'll see about the nuclear pink.

I'd love to tell you that I'm up to all sorts of exciting things, but I'm up to my eyeballs in manslaughter, negligance, offers to treat and citations.Oh and business sitting. Are you all living vicariously for me?!

I'm constantly on the look-out for a nice jumper dress, maybe Uniqlo will be the answer to my problems! You look very smart :] My life is very boring at the moment but I can make up some mad hijinks if you want?

Oh you look gorgeous! You're so lucky to suit purple. I think it's a beautiful colour but it doesn't suit me at all.
