This is me trying to make a bit more of an effort for work. I'm attending a few more meetings now and doing a little less shelving so there's no need to be quite as practical with my clothing choices. I try to look a little smarter and more authoritative to distinguish myself from the students in the library as the PhD students are the same ages as me.
I've had the black dress in my wardrobe for about three years now and it's a basic item I always go back to. The blouse was a recent purchase in new Look and I've already worn it a handful of times. Definitely a new favourite of mine and a bargain at under £20.

I've had about 4/5 inches chopped off my hair (not very noticeable) so it's looking far more healthy at the moment. I'm trying to grow it and need to make sure I get regular trims so I don't need such a drastic cut next time to get rid of dead ends :( My lipstick is one of those Topshop marker pens, I bought it about two years ago and it's been lying in my make up tub all that time, totally forgotten. Oops.
