But now about the baptism outfit. It was my first baptism and I can say with all honesty that it was horrible. First we were late and I forgot the lipstick. And then there was church. Even people that attended more than the 3 church services I went through in life admitted that it was one of their most boring service experiences. Add the fact that I felt miserable, cold and needed a toilet really badly and you get an idea of how much fun I had. But at least, and here´s the positive note, I got a lot of compliments for the dress. I actually had it on my to-sell-list for months now but as I´m going through some fitting issues lately this one came to the rescue. I still consider selling it though, because we just don´t seem to fit perfectly, no matter what. My hair is also a horrible mess at the moment (can´t decide for a new colour) so I put a hat on to hide the massive roots. It worked out ok I think. Here´s the details:
Dress with Bolero: flea market
Hat: flea market
Jewellery: thrift shops
Shoes: Forever 18 (I think)
I did a little math. The whole outfit cost me not more than 20 € including shoes. I´d like to call this a success.

"My crooked pictures somehow always look best!" Yeah, well...
In the afternoon the real party took place at a bbq station in the woods and while I had changed the outfit to something forest appropriate (I might have looked like a lumberjack...) I didn´t change the shoes. And I didn´t take a jacket with me. Baaaaaaad mistake. Because when we arrived it started raining cats and dogs. And it kept raining, and raining, and raining. Let´s just say it wasn´t the best of days but at least I had some delicious cheese cake. All praise the cheesecake!
I hope your last 2,5 months were great, ladies! :)
