This Week The Mice Have Mostly Been...

Another short and sweet week thanks to a further blissful bank holiday which mostly consisted of...
 
 
And...
 
 
And more...


Pure alcoholic indulgence taken to the extreme... the countdown is on until the next one, with only a few weeks to wait - yippee! When we haven't been trying to cram a week's worth of work into three days, this week the Mice have mostly been...

Rocking the matchy-matchy look. You may recall a few weeks back I reported on the PJ-inspired trend that has taken the highstreet by storm. For weeks now I've been on the look out for the perfect duo and I'm pleased to say that magic matchy-matchy moment finally happened in Zara on Oxford Street after a manic day at work. And here's the evidence of me with my match made in heaven topped off with a smug smile...!


It was love at first sight when I saw this outfit flirting back at me on the shop rail... popping blue, oversized floral print and wide legged pants. Perfection and affordable too... trousers - £39.99 and top - £25.99. BUT, would it actually pan out to be like all Tinder men - super on first impressions but slightly flawed when you look a little closer?! (SUCH a generalisation but I couldn't help myself, sorry!) So off I trotted with my tall and fashionable glass of water to try him on for size (AKA the matching trouser set!) 
 
As I expected - too good to be true! The trousers were about a metre too long - no exaggeration. Yes ankle swingers are not hot and I'd always prefer jeans or trousers to be a touch too long to make sure that cardinal sin never ever rears its ugly head but come on Zara... I may be on the short side but I was literally wiping the floors clean with all that excess fabric. Whinge aside, I always like the things that are bad for me, and despite the giraffe-proportions, I was hooked on this duo, so off I went to purchase the pair. Of course, the love affair doesn't end there - I had to take the new love of my life to get the snip... at my local dry cleaners! Annoying, because it cost me an extra £15 to do so - not such a cheap date after all hey...
 
After that whirlwind, you'll be pleased to hear that it all ended blissfully well when I picked up my new obsession a few days later and took him out for our first date - I'm in love again...
 


 
Still drooling over the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G gowns worn so well at the Met Ball on Monday. If only us Mice had such an occasion to dress up like a million dollar Cinderella and have brands like Burberry, Gucci and Chanel knocking down our doors to dress us! Mice can only dream!
 
While we rounded up our best and worst dressed on Twitter on Tuesday, we haven't had a second to blog our usual red carpet report so instead, we've decided to share the other side of the occasion from the stars' point of view AKA their Instagram snaps of course...
 




















Jealous much?!! 
 
OK back to reality with a bump but before we sign off for the week, there are four fierce and fabulous ladies who want to set the tone for the next two days of fun we all have ahead... Go on strike a pose Reese, Kate, Stella and Cara!
 
 
Happy weekend all
 
Lots of love
