Made By Me #25

You may have noticed I have been a bit absent of late.  This is partly due to going on holiday but mostly because of my recent eye infection and how it has left me feeling over my appearance.  I know millions of people wear glasses and are happy and comfortable with them but I really am not.  When I was told I wouldn't be able to wear my contact lenses for three months I went out and ordered a new pair of glasses knowing I needed to feel happier when wearing them.  Unfortunately it has taken quite a bit for me to accept my appearance with this big chunk of plastic on my face.  So much so I really didn't want actual, proper blog photos taken.  Instagram snaps are a-okay - you can't really see too much detail so it didn't stop me from carrying on with me made May but it has meant I have put off taking outfit photos.  That tomorrow that never comes.  Until today when I realised I miss blogging and can't really put it off any longer.  Today I am sharing dress number 25, I hope to have made 50 by Friday!

This dress got such an amazing reception on instagram, even my Dad told me it was his favourite!  It makes me feel bright and happy so I thought it was the perfect dress to debut with my glasses.  Don't get me wrong I think lots of people look great behind frames, just not me.  I have teamed my dress with my lady dragons again as I loved the result and my gorgeous new Hobbs bag.   The bag is so lovely, buttery soft leather with several compartments and a strap to switch it to an across the body bag.  I think it works really well as a clutch so that is how I will be mostly using it.  I am also wearing a lovely bracelet from Nigel O'Hara.  It is a grey cord bracelet by Fiorelli with a gold plated ring detail, I love how simple it is.  I am preferring less 'blingy' jewellery at the moment.  Something which makes a statement whilst still being subtle.

  2. That dress is lovely and the glasses look great on you! I don't mind wearing mine, I rather them to contacts, but I still don't usually wear them in pictures, i take them off if anyone is snapping shots, as you will notice on blog, glasses shots are few and far between!

    1. Thank you! I just find them really uncomfortable and don't like the way I look in any glasses even those that suit me the most. I wish I could follow your lead but wouldn't even be able to see the camera if I did that, might give it a go and see how they look though!

  3. You look great in yellow! I am jealous. :) I also hate wearing my glasses -- my husband says they're cute, but it reminds me too much of my awkward childhood I guess. Plus my lenses are thicccck. I do think glasses look cute on others (you included!) though!

    1. Yellow makes everything that much brighter! Glasses are really clumsy, I had forgotten how annoying they are to wear. I am sure you look cute but I obvs know where you're coming from.

  4. Just discovered your blog whilst I'm making my first Emery (managed the lining today, woohoo!) and now I think I neeeed this yellow fabric in my life. What a great dress, I love it.
    (and I know it won't make one jot of difference what I say, but the glasses look fine, really they do, but I understand where you're coming from with what you've said x)

  10. Loving the dress - that fabric is awesome and so cheerful!

    I totally sympathise with the glasses thing - I also had conjunctivitis last year and was gutted that I couldn't wear my lenses for months (and I did the same as you and got new glasses too!). I was determined to stick with them though, if only so that I could have my lenses back. I can't wear the "all day all night" lenses that you sleep in anymore but at least I only have to wear my glasses one day a week. :-)

  11. I LOVE this dress, definitely my favourite so far! :D I don't usually mind my glasses too much but taking them off at the end of the day is the best feeling!
