To celebrate International Talk Like A Pirate Day, I went to work today dressed like a very manly pirate. I am very convincing and menacing! I even won an award! A certificate and free movie tickets because I was clearly the best dressed pirate.
Okay, so only me and the guy running the competition dressed up! But still I feel very very honoured, and feel like a bit of looting and sword fighting. I had an eye patch too, but it didn't really work out, because I am clever and could not manage to put it on without a mirror. Also you can't see in the picture I had one big gold hoop in, and copious amounts of eyeliner.
Also I made this dress in about two minutes last night, to go with the piratey theme. So I very much deserve a nice prize and certificate for all the effort! Don't you Arrrgree? Yes that was the lamest joke in the history of jokes. All bow down before me.
So I decided I quite like my shoddy, badly made stripey dress. It matches my hair you see. Look up there, I have dressed it for wintery weather and then dressed it for summery weather. It is a very very versatile dress. I can see it also working as a skirt or a top too. HUZZAH!
What are all your thoughts on the matter? Is pirate chic hot or not?
Is it safe for me to go into public in very very badly sewn garments??
