You're the glitter in the dark

So a few weeks ago I went and saw the eerily beautiful sounds of Bat for Lashes. Which gave me a perfect opportunity to dress like Miss Havisham on an LSD trip. Initially, I was going to wear the 1930s pale blue lace number but got rather worried that it might rip. Truth be told I rarely worry about my clothes, even my very old ones, but this one is so delicate I did not want to chance it.

So I wore the ice skater hooker dress from Topshop. 

The gig was amazing, it was at Manchester Cathedral, so it was a perfect venue for Natasha Khan. To my dismay hardly anyone seemed to be dolled up in the audience, and me my boyfriend seemed to be standing out like sore thumbs as we were towering over everyone, jeez don't say I am getting to old for gigs?! 











This is a first for my blog, me sitting down, I am such a fricking fidget, this rarely happens. 








Final thought, let's take a moment to appreciate Natasha's awesome style.
