Patchwork.

I'm certainly still in a dark mindset for Autumn/Winter and did a little charity-shop browsing yesterday for a black denim shirt, but could only find a blue denim so will have to dye it.

However, it is still Summer and on Thursday night I wore a rather colourful dress. I bought it in Urban Outfitters in Canada last summer, but have never deemed an occasion just right for it due to its prettiness. But last week my mother was being nosy in my wardrobe and noticed the tags were still attached. Needless to say she wasn't happy that I had year old, unworn clothing and so what to wear out on Thursday evening was decided for me!

I'm glad I finally wore it though and I really love the different textured materials on the patchwork skirt part of the dress.
