first of december!


 Mama and I went to the theatre today to see "The Wizard of Oz". I love the movie, so I had to see how they've managed to make it into a play. It was probably directed for a younger audience but I quite liked it anyway. The costumes were great and so were the staging.

I felt a bit like Dorothy in my red shoes, even though mine aren't ruby red and glittery. I think it's good that they changed the colour of the shoes to the movie (and this play). In the books (which I haven't read..) they're silver but because of the new techniques in the movies, they wanted them to be ruby. In my opinion, red shoes are better than silver! I do have a slight obsession with red shoes, haha.




Dress - My auntie's made it for teenage-mama! (Actually a skirt.)
Cardi - Zara
Knee-high socks - Halpa-Halli
Boots - 2nd hand
Bag - New look

 Hope you all remembered to open your advent calendar! (If you have one, that is.) I was so excited this morning - not so much for my calendar, but the cats' one! I think Cleo didn't appreciate it as much as I do..

Mine!


Cleopatra's!
