A terrible start to my year as a Little Alice began with me frantically searching my horrifically messy bedroom for ANY of the Victorian-esque clothing I had managed to amass over the last few months and almost tearing my hair out.
Dan, who seems to have become my sanity since I seem to be currently going through a pretty pathetic twenty-something's version of a mid-life crisis (replacing half my wardrobe with bizarre things like patterned Christmas jumpers and striped harem pants, refusing to check my emails for months on end or, um, brush my hair, generally behaving and dressing in a scatty and vaguely hobo-esque manner), eventually took over, sorting everything into piles and pulling out all the Victorian stuff he could.
Cue crisis two - we had to be at a restaurant in half an hour and because of my incredibly poor planning, none of my lovely Victorian and Neo-Victorian and steampunk-styled clothes, bought specifically for spending 2012 as a little punktorian Alice, went together.
Of course, I threw a grade-A strop and started threatening to go to the pub in my underwear.
