Outfit Post: All That Glitters...



Last Sunday night was one of my very best friend's 30th birthday party. I decided to go all out for the occasion and wear this RIDICULOUS skirt that I bought at the end of last year but have never worn. Let's face it, there's not too many places that you can wear a skirt like this without getting laughed at. Even the gay village on a Sunday night was pushing it, to be honest. Having to walk about a mile to a working cash machine in this outfit was also slightly mortifying but, thankfully, I'd had a few glasses of wine by that point.


The crinoline didn't come with the skirt but, for maximum ridiculousness, I thought it only fitting that I wore it. Thus rendering me completely incapable of walking past a table without knocking over glasses. Seriously, I've never felt so immobile in an outfit before.


The party was incredible but, even more incredible, was me still wearing the outfit at 1pm the next day and having to get cash out in the middle of a Manchester suburb. A new low. Anyway, that's my last big night out for a while now, due to training commencing in earnest for the Great Manchester Run. I'm running for the Prostate Cancer Charity and, if anyone has any pennies to spare, I've set up a Just Giving page. Thanks, loves.

I think you look amazing. Dressing down a skirt so fierce with a neutral coloured cardi was inspired.

Oh God Helen, I love it. I love it more than I can express. The skirt, the nails, the necklace... it's ostentatious-fabulousness. Amazing. x

Kudos to you for having the guts to wear it! It does look fab though :)
Good luck with raising money for your run, my stepdad had prostate cancer so I really respect you for doing the run and choosing that as your charity! I would definitely donate if I didn't have £10 to my name haha xx
