Item of the Week 021

It's been a long time since I've posted Item of the Week; I must get back into this feature. Today I am featuring this beautiful and amazing dress that I received as a gift on Saturday. My mother in law bought it for me in the Portmans sale. I love it so much. It reminds me very much of Alannah Hill style. I adore the sweet little detailing, the colour and the fit. I like the wool component especially because I don't have dresses with this material. I'm looking forward to wearing it for the first time; hopefully I can wear it to a birthday lunch today but it's supposed to only be fifteen degrees celcius. It was such a wonderful surprise to receive this dress especially at a time when my life is very boring; I've had so many essays to write for university lately that nothing fun or exciting has happened for weeks. It brightened my day so much.
I'm part way through university exam period at the moment. I have all take home exams and final essays rather than formal sit down exams which, in general, I find much more stressful. A total of 11 000 words is not very fun. But I am slowly getting through it. I am proud of myself for getting this far especially since I never expected to make it to fifth year of a law degree. I am currently working on my third assignment out of four. It's going to be a busy week but the holidays are only a week away.

Cute Portman's dress! Your mother in law has good taste.

So you're over halfway through your home exams and essays for your fifth year of law school? 11,000 words is quite lengthy. Quite the opposite of having a 140 character limit on Twitter. Good luck with your week. and have great holidays thereafter. : )
