The last time I did a post like this I did this whole thing about looking SRS BZNZ (I cannot believe how many times I have written SRS BZNZ in this post. Oh look, there’s another one.) whilst also still looking fun and awesome, in my polka dot jacket and red dress, neither of which I wear as much as I would like (because the red dress has a weird black mark on it that even the dry cleaner couldn’t remove and the polka dot jacket really only goes with the red dress) but today I am going to talk about how it is possible to look SRS BZNZ without brushing your hair! Well, I say talk about, more ‘admit’ because, yeah, I have not brushed my hair, just scraped it into a ponytail and chucked loads of hairgrips in it. It looks okay! This is because curly hair WANTS to be messy, so you just have to embrace it. This is why I haven’t straightened my hair in like two months. Straight hair is so neat! My hair doesn’t want to be NEAT!
I did brush the fringe though. I’m not an ANIMAL, come on.
Anyway, this dress (and this one, which is actually identical, just a different colour) are extremely good officewear for the English summer, partly because they are smart enough that if you don’t brush your hair no one notices, partly because they are a decent length to wear with bare legs or nude tights, but also because they are that thick stretchy material that is sometimes called ponte, sometimes ponti, and sometimes ‘that thick stretchy material’. That’s what I call it. So they’re quite warm! And when you work in an office with over-enthusiastic air-con users AND window-openers, you need to be warm.
I am sure I should have committed to the SRS BZNZ thing by wearing glasses and looking disapprovingly at you over the top of them, but if I do that with my glasses, I would not be able to see you, because my eyesight is so bad that I get free eyetests. Also, I look horrible in glasses. I hate you, hipsters with your cute faces and trendy glasses you don’t need! SWAP EYEBALLS WITH ME.
