I've been having a few problems with my photo editing software, hence a lack of regular outfit posts. I don't use anything fancy, just Windows Live Photo Gallery for resizing, cropping, removing red-eye... etc.. However, ever since I updated the program a few weeks ago, it crashes instantly whenever I open it up, giving me a massive headache and meaning I now have to use my parents'/boyfriends laptop for photo sorting. Sorry for the rant, I do wonder whether anyone else is having similar problems with this program?
Ok, moving on....these photos are a few weeks old, due to the above reason. I wore this Grecian draped blouse a lot during the warmer months (you can see me wearing it on holiday here), but always found it falling off my shoulders. I have stupidly narrow shoulders, meaning I experience this problem a lot, even with regular cut tops that aren't supposed to rest elegantly on the shoulder. To combat this problem, I started to wear the blouse not on the shoulder as below....
...but pulled down so my shoulders and upper arms were covered with material in a cape like fashion. Basically, the black and silver crochet panels are moved from their precarious position on my shoulder to a much safer position on my décolletage. You probably can't see much of a difference, but it saved me a lot of frustration as the top no longer slips off my shoulder every two minutes. The neckline is however dangerously low so I do have to stay alert lest I flash some innocent bystanders.

My boyfriend bought me this antique bracelet, which is almost certainly a tourist souvenir from the French ski resort of Chamonix. Last year I bought a similar piece of French souvenir jewellery, in the form of an antique key brooch, depicting the Sac basilica in Paris, which you can see here. Tourist souvenirs certainly seemed more tasteful 100 years ago!
