First Post!

Inspired by recent posting I thought it was about time I made my first post. Ive been a regular reading/commenter for a long time now but am just too lazy and feel like too much of an idiot taking photos of myself. Oh and Ive only just worked out how to use my camera timer! ha. I live in skirts and dresses and love to wear OTT clothes all the time including to work. It makes me happy and I really don’t give a damn what anyone else thinks. Oh and it means that I don’t have to waste money buying ugly work clothes. A snap shot of my current favourites awaits.

Hello, my name is Sarah and I have a serious prom addiction.

I also must have been a magpie in a previous life. If it glitters or sparkles then I have to have it.
