a little frill and a dash of sequence

I always wait until I've taken my pictures in the afternoon and reviewed them before I get really excited about an outfit.  Reason being, there have been some that looked smashing in the mirror, but in photos were none too pleasing.  Maybe doing the photos in the morning would be the answer, but it's a matter of having enough time.
Todays look is a little cheapie dress I picked up this weekend at the whopping price of R119.00 at Mr. Price.  The fabric is quite divine and falls great, which can be surprising as some of Mr. Price's item are not of the greatest quality.  The cardigan I bought almost three months ago on sale and today is the first time I'm wearing it.  It's a nice three quarter sleeve which I thought was rather appropriate as the weather channel said we could expect a day time high of 22 Celcius ... looking out my window at 10:00 this morning it looked way lower.

I have high hopes for this dress and think it may be worth much more than R119.00 I paid for it, much as the black shift I bought from Jet last year at R99.00. 

Kept it rather simple by not adding a necklace and simple silver hoop earrings, a silver and red bangles and a red belt ...

See the lovely gash on the outside of my leg there?

Love me some red mary-janes

Ooops - I forgot to smile ... lol

The sequence were not visible in the first pictures
After work I headed to the optometrist.  Ended up chosing different frames to what I looked at yesterday and decided on Ray Ban frames for my sunnies.  The lenses, due to them being multifocals on my day to day glasses cost an absolute fortune.  I also got a stern talking to from her about the migraines I've been suffering with ... she has insisted that I now visit a neurologist - 8 migraines in two weeks, especially with halo effect is no laughing matter.  Between us - I'm terrified and have no excuse for not doing this sooner.  But, I know its time.

Well, it was a late day, I got home close to 7pm and thankfully G-man cooked dinner.

Now, I'm going to go sort out my clothes for tomorrow, file the nail I graunched on the car boot, shower and cuddle under the covers with my man.

'til next time ...
be fabulous, be stylish, be awesome!
