More spots and roller derby

Dress: asos / T-shirt: Norfolk Brawds merch / Headband : vintage from Goldfinches

Yesterday I went to see the Norfolk Brawds roller derby team take on the Vendetta Vixens at the UEA Sportspark. I had a brilliant time, I’ve wanted to see a roller derby bout for ages and it didn’t disappoint! The final score was 164 to 153 to the Norfolk Brawds, the last ten minutes of the bout were especially tense as it was so close. The whole experience was great, I really love the aesthetics of the game and the way it celebrates women, and I came home really energised.

I wore my favourite spotty dress from asos, it’s really easy to wear and looks as smart or as casual as you want. I love vintage scarves, it’s taken me quite a long to perfect my method of wearing them (tip: use a safety pin at the back) but they’re great for when my pixie cut grows out a bit. The t-shirt I bought at the roller derby, I cut a 10cm slit up the front so I could tie the t-shirt up so it was a bit more fitted.

Here are a couple of pictures from the bout, my phone wasn’t the best for taking pictures on though, so they’re a bit blurry!
