Wednesday Wardrobe Post - White!

Thanks for all your comments on my fire walking post - it is kind of mad, I know! To answer the main question people had - yes it did feel REALLY hot when I walked through the coals and no, I didn't get burnt! My feet felt a little bit sore and tender for the rest of the day, but by Sunday they were fine. Unfortunately Rich got a big blister from the fire walk which is still healing - so I think I was pretty lucky really.

Well now for today's wardrobe challenge which was wear white, I'm not a big fan of white clothes and given that I'm doing "Made by Me May" as well I had a bit of a challenge on my hands. But then I realised wearing white doesn't mean you have to wear ALL white. So I decided to wear my trusty space dress - there is some white in the fabric - so that counts right?
I bought these sparkly stockings yesterday on a "sanity break" from work - its all a bit hectic at the moment. So I went for a walk, went to Glassons and left with two new pairs of tights. These ones were just screaming out to be worn with space dress.
I decided to wear my trusty skull scarf for a few extra touches of white - I did plan on wearing my white shoes today, but its pouring down, so it was a boots kind of day.
Finally an artsy photo by Rich - I actually kind of like the way it worked out!

I just read your firewalking post. You're so brave. I love your space dress and sparkley tights. I'm not a big fan of white clothes either, mostly because I'm quite good at spilling things on myself when I'm wearing light colours.

Ooooh I love that frock. Fab print. I can't wear white. It just looks wrong against my skin, so I have literally NO white anywhere in my wardrobe. You look super skinny in that last shot, I might have to get my hubby to experiment with my frock photos too! Xx

I LOVE that dress. It fits you so well, it has space stuff, it's adorable- I love it.

I used to hate white but lately I've really gotten into white tee shirts. I do love that I read an article from a physicist last week where they said white was actually worse to wear in the summer and black kept you cooler.

Ooh, I seem to have missed your fire walking post, I'll check it out.
Love the space frock and especially the sparkly tights.
I have discovered (finally!) that wearing white or very pale colours next to my face washes me out. I love the idea of a crisp white shirt, but the reality would be... not so good. We live and learn! xxx
