Today's Victorian-inspired outfit was toned down for a wet and windy day at work - which, sadly, means no corsets or petticoats, but that will hardly be surprising to you who have followed my punktorian adventures thus far since I haven't even made it into a pair of bloomers just yet!
My main concession to Victoriana today was wearing my hair up; something I rarely do. However, I am apparently pathologically unable to accept a compliment and must remember that when my manager approves of my hairstyle the correct response is, "Why thank you," not, "Well, it was kind of necessary as I haven't combed my hair in several weeks because the left hand side of it has randomly congealed, I don't know what's wrong with it but it won't wash out... I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks," as that is far too much information for most people and results in a startled-blinking-fish-face from the compliment-giver.
