I'm Not Sure What Happened....

Ikea Malm

I'm not sure what happened!! There I was, saving my birthday money for this Ikea set of drawers to cover with some of my Laura Ashley Oriental Garden wallpaper in duck egg blue. (See here for the original plan)When suddenly it turned into this:
What the?...

You see I was riding my bike, all sweat and grimy, when I spied this dress in my local dress shop window. And you see, well, I think it is all that 'Zhushing'!! Yes. I blame the Zhushing. Because I could suddenly see myself is this little number! (I know that Susan from Zhush will totally understand won't you darling?) I thought "black and white - timeless really" and suddenly it was mine. With 10%off too I might add.

So, before I knew it I had purchased said dress, had my frizz tamed nice and sleek-ish, bought a thick black bangle (because less IS more)  and waallaa! Here I am!
Day 2 after the 'do'

I already had the shoes...

So all I need now is a Function really.

AND, I need to save for my chest of drawers again...

 Ciao for now...
