New glasses and some plain clothes

In the photos I take for this blog, I am usually wearing skirts, and have got the brooches piled on, but actually I mostly don’t dress like that. What you see here is how I dress most days for work – some non-jeans trousers and a plain jumper of shirt. I thought it would be fun to take some photos of this basic way of dressing for a change.

Although there is one thing that’s slightly interesting which is the real reason for taking the pictures – new glasses! The were sent to me by Firmoo, who I’ve reviewed a couple of pairs for in the past (which you can see here and here), and which are actually my most worn pairs (I now have six pairs – shh!). The pair I chose is sold out now, they have a quickly changing selection!

We had a really hard time taking pictures by the way, for some reason I looked drunk in most of of them. Number three, while not exactly flattering, was one of the less weird ones! I did want to include something other than the smiley ones though, because in those you can’t really see the frames properly. It’s a nice gradiated colour that’s a greyey white at the bottom and an almost black brown at the top.

The other thing all the failed photos made me realise is that my lips are incredibly cracked and pale (compared to what they used to be anyway, I know they’re not *that* pale). You can’t tell so much when I’m smiling, cos it stretches out the skin, but they’re really horrible looking in some of the non-shown pictures. Does anyone know how to get lips back to health? I guess drinking more to keep them moist, exfoliating with a toothbrush and using lip balm regularly is all you can do. Or does anyone have any other suggestions? I might have to start wearing lip stick regularly to cover it up!

Outfit stats:
uniqlo jumper – charity shop * marks and sparks trousers – charity shop * shoes – office * jigsaw coat (not really seen) – charity shop

    Love the new glasses! on the lips you’ve got it covered I think – drink plenty of water, use lip balm. I didn’t even know about exfoliating with a toothbrush!

    Love the glasses! Went to check Firmoo out, just wondering if you get charged customs when ordering from them as they seem to be US?

      I think they are actually based in China, but you make a good point, you could be liable for taxes if you go over the limit. Though I’ve got three pairs from there, and Dave has one and we’ve never been charged.

    Great glasses! For my lips I swear by Vaseline (or any petroleum jelly). Works great and it’s inexpensive.
