    Bare legged :yy:
    I would usually wear tights with it I think, but I'm meeting this guy I've been hooking up with, and taking tights off is possibly the most unsexy thing ever :nn: :tongue:

    Got made redundant, so the first thing I did..went shopping. Which doesn't make any sense but it seemed like the right thing to do :cute:

    Bought a topshop bodycon dress (I am actually addicted to body con :erm:)
    Got bright yellow and bright green dazzle dust..not quite sure what I'm going to do with thisss.
    And some gorgeous topshop heels that I shall photograph soon :coma:
    Got some Aussie shampoo and some veet also.

    i just did something naughty and bought a new pair of boots. will definitely take a picture when they arrive. they're not even really wearable but they were half price and came with a free gift that I was going to buy anyway so i got suckered in.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=220416388913 - absolutely gorgeous and fits perfectly, sooo happy though having a dilemma about whether to wear it my prom instead of my current dress ... aaah!
    http://www.monsoon.co.uk/invt/482645...orizenecklaces and some matching earrings which i cant find online. Also http://www.monsoon.co.uk/invt/486836...cczflowerclips They're to go with my current prom dress but they'll go with my (possible) new one too, which doesnt help my dilemma

    i bought this sometime last week but didn't have my phone so no camera! I had to be embarassingly posey to show what the sleeves are like and how the material falls cuz i really like it. :o:
    I'm probably going to paint/bleach some swirls and butterflies into it so will post another pic when i'm done.


    oh, and although it's not F&B I did buy this little sweetie.

    The sleeves are gorgeous! Where did you get it?

    And how easy is it to bleach? Does the bleach spread, so what was a nice neat drawing goes all blurry? Or does it sit like paint?

    matalan, for £10!

    depends what kind of bleach you use and how you do it. if you use thick bleach and paint it on carefully then spread should be minimal, normally I do a patch somewhere not obvious to see how it will work because some fabrics really absorb it. I'll probably end up doing it with acrylic paints though, they last pretty well through the wash and everything and you get pretty colours :yep:
    what else you can do is use wax to seal off the area you want to bleach, that works really well but it's fiddly to do, never got the hang of it personally.

    that dress looks gorgeous on you, just the right length!

    Bargain then!

    I normally use acrylic, but always worry about it cracking, flaking, or being uncomfortable to wear. Hmm, I shall investigate!

    know what you mean, I quite like the cracked effect so don't mind if that happens. you can get fabric pens from craft shops, don't know how well they work but might be an idea.
