an experiment




i don't usually like posts that are filled with excuses or apologies, but in the case of my unbelieveably shiteous camera situation, I must do just that. my lovely digital got nicked at someones house and until that bonus we've been promised in march (um. yeah. right?) no self timer for me! i digress.

I was going through my drawers and had a sudden lightbulb moment.
a frilled skirt that I never ever wear + an american apparel scoopneck dress =that lovely la garconne dress?

in short, it's the closest i'll get and so an experiment ensued with lots of tucking and some "wait, do I look pregnant?" thoughts.
