"DEAR PRUDENCE, WON'T YOU COME OUT TO PLAY?'

Listening to: Dear Prudence- The Beatles.

All day Friday I felt awful! and ended up sleeping in our empty recovery room over lunch. By the time I got home from work I was stressed from ringing around to rude agencies about our machines and dealing with patients who DO NOT LISTEN AT ALL. I was hungry and just felt yuck.

So all the better to get in an amazing pair of bespoke high waisted velvet pants!



Shirt & tights: Primark
Boots: Charity shop (originally Topshop- similar here)
Bag: Gift
Earrings: Topshop
Sunglasses: Trash Vintage
High waisted velvet pants: Unlovable Lingerie

Sometimes you just have to put on an item of clothing to feel incredibly amazing- and these velvet pants are just that. Yes they are lingerie- but I bought them as  outer wear and love them, and feel very much like Debbie Harry in them. 

These were made by the wonderful Rosaline Whittingham of Unlovable Lingerie, who makes the most amazing items! These are amazing and fit like a glove, and can literally see the time and care put into making them by hand one by one to your exact measurements (although I just choose to have them made to a normal size 12). They joined my life roughly 4 weeks ago and I have never shown an item of clothing so much love.

I would spoon them at night is I wasn't worried about creasing them.

I'm currently lusting over several of her items- including this beautiful velvet studded bralet (its so beautiful), these high waisted tie-dye pants, and this nautical bow bralet.
The only down side to any of these items is as each is completely handmade to order- they do take 4 weeks to make and arrive. But are completely worth it!

P.S. I've not forgotten the DIY I promised to share- they will be up soon. Or as soon as I take some photos of the finished products (sorry it is not today I'm just awful with a camera so have to wait for Chris help).
