I haven't seen the details of the world outside for a long time. I rarely wear my glasses. There is always the awkward moment when I am meeting up with someone and I meander towards them suspiciously until I realise- yes it is them and I can smile. Sometimes I've walked up to complete strangers and just before I am about to hug them I realise I have no idea who they are and sharply veer in another direction.
Wear your glasses! the opticianist said. But I am so used to seeing the world in vague colours and shapes and imagining the details in between that when I wore my glasses outside it came as a shock. Is this how the world looks? It was so sharp and oppressive. I could see too many things and my mind panicked. I must try again.
I love this dress. It's made of silk and felt very luxurious. It is a hand down as are the purple leather gloves. I don't usually talk about make up on this blog but I've just discovered Revlon colourburst lip butter and it is lovely. The colour I'm wearing is Pink Truffle.
