This is me wearing the Marie bubble skirt that Dave made me (his first ever garnment!) but pairing it with something different. I’ve worn it a few times recently like the first picture here with a black top, but I can hardy take pictures of the same outfit over and over again. So red polo shirt it was.
In other news, I’m wearing my new necklace I got via an etsy trade with theblueballoon. I lovelovelove it!
It arrived yesterday, after getting stuck in evil customs and coming to me with a £11 charge! Boo trade restrictions! Having grown up as a child of the EU, it’s easy to forget that it used to be like that between all the countries, having to pay customs. And borders! There used to be passport controls everywhere. When I lived in Belize briefly in 2006 and we used to go over to Mexcio and Guatemala and you had to PAY to cross a border! Pay! I was not impressed. I know this is totally unreasonable, but I find border administration quite offensive. That’s probably the worst thing about going to the US, the way the immigration people quiz you for ages and flirt with you excessively and you can’t do anything about it because its their stupid border. And they’re homophobic too – last time when Dave said that he was travelling with his partner, they were really horrible to him, and then they discovered that his partner was a woman they were nice all of a sudden.
Oopsy, that’s gone a bit off tangent!
