1920s Prohibition

Dress - Kate Moss for Topshop via eBay
Head chain - Etsy

 
Last night was my work’s Christmas party, which had a 1920s theme. At first I was dreading the whole fancy dress thing but my work managed to provide gin cocktails in tea cups so in the end, it was good! I’ve never seen so many woman in head bands or so many men I should respect quite drunk!

Luckily, I didn’t have to put in too much effort with an outfit. I bought this Kate Moss for Topshop dress on eBay for a mere £6.50 (the seller had the item ending at 1pm on a week day – big mistake!)  I wasn’t that keen on it but couldn’t really argue with the price. The head chain I bought roughly a year ago on Etsy but somehow managed to forget about it. I have been advised by many a colleague to wear it more often – who am I to argue!

I can’t remember the exact seller but if you search Etsy of course a million beautiful things appear - I could spend a fortune on that site. I found an even better head band here, which I may have to purchase after Christmas.  

Sorry, I am finding it slightly difficult to string a good sentence together this morning. My head is killing me and I can’t quite face breakfast, so the head ache tablets haven’t been consumed yet. Hangovers get worse as you get older!
