My pretties

I missed my train. This was a bad thing, as after a hard day's work, I wanted nothing so much as to get home. With half an hour's wait on my hands, I went shopping. And that's when the good thing happened: I found a pretty, pretty black ankle-length frilly skirt, with a split in the front. I call it my witchy skirt, as the hem is not just frilly, but kind of zig-zag, too. Wearing it makes me feel very feminine, yet at the same time very powerful -- it's come hither, but at your own peril. It's Teh Pretty. Me likey. (So what if it cost a bundle?)

And after last night's Much Ado About Nothing, I am reminded that Damian Lewis is Teh Pretty, too.

Ooh, skirt!

Damian Lewis is indeed Teh Pretty. So much that I'm tempted to buy Band of Brothers on DVD... and I don't even like war films. Well, I do; just not the violence. *headdesk*

Yes, but Band of Brothers is different -- from what I can remember, it's not so much the violence, as the sheer futiliy and wastefulness of war that that's portrayed in it. And of course, Damian Lewis is teh pretty in that too...unwashed, melancholy, and incredibly sexy ;-).

You were? I thought he looked hideous in that role. He looked much better in Band of Brothers. Then again, that was what was intended, so all is good. The man can act, I'll say that.

Oh yes, the suits and the beard almost made your eyes bleed...but there was the bit at the beginning where he was wearing black, and the bit at the wedding where he scrubbed up nicely in the best man's outfit...and the bit in the middle where he exercised with the blue ball (he's got very nice arms, I noticed)...yup. Definitely Teh Pretty!

Everyone needs a good witchy skirt. Mine is a black silk broomstick style skirt that nearly touches the floor. Yay for shopping!

I have 2 no 3... Oh hell, they're all witchy (almost).

...but then, being a bogwitch, you owe it to yourself to own lots of witchy skirts!

Most of mine are of the short, above the knee to be worn with knee high boots.

I'm only now starting to wear skirts again. For the longest time after my accident, I refused to let my ankle be seen by anyone not in the medical profession!

I'm still not entirely comfortable showing my legs: my ankle, though much better than it was, definitely shows the damage I've done to it, and I imagine everyone will notice and stare; but today, I don't care: I'm wearing an above the knee skirt, and (not so) high heels, and no one's said anything yet, or looked at me funny...

Good for you! I'm sure you are much more aware of the ankle than anyone else is. I don't usually show much leg, what with the knee high boots.

I'm sure you're right. It's just that because it's still sore, I'm constantly aware of it.

Oooo... skirt sounds fab!

Despite myself (and Billie Piper) I really enjoyed Much Ado last night. I tend to shy away from 'modernised' Shakespeare, but it was fun.

I used to think Shakespeare was best in period costume too -- but then I saw Branagh's contemporised versions of Much Ado and especially Hamlet, and I was won over to the other side.

I hope Much Ado set the tone for the rest of the series...and I'll be quite interested to see what they done with Macbeth next week!

I have a skirt like that. Though I love it muchly, I am well aware it doesn't suit me.

I enjoyed the Shakespeare too. And Macbeth next week, if we're not sick of it!

Shopping is the cure-all for all ills -- at least, to me, it is.

How can you say that? You look fine in skirts, and I'm sure the one you have in mind looks good on you, too!

Skirts are okay, it's just this one. I think it needs heels and I can't wear them.

How about wedges? Can you wear those? They're ever so fashionable these days...

It's that elevation my poor broken feet can't stand (and tramping round cities!)

I know I'm all kinds of shallow, but having pretty new clothes, always makes me feel a little bit better about everything! ;-)
