Outfit #70: Timey Wimey Wibbly Wobbly
TARDIS dress: Her Universe (Buy Here) // Jacket: Thrifted (Similar) // Shoes: Thrifted (Jessica Simpson (Similar) // Sonic Screwdriver! (Buy Here)
The first time I ever watched Doctor Who it was the first episode of the 11th Doctor. My ex boyfriend - a high strung Australian who had been raised on the show - sat me down in the hotel room we were sharing and put his laptop on my stomach, queuing up the episode. The entire time I watched it, he watched ME eagerly, gauging my reaction.
By the end of it I turned to him and screamed "WHY DIDN'T YOU SHOW THIS TO ME EARLIER?!" and a fan was born.
I went through the rest of the first season of Matt Smith, all of Eccleston, Tennant, and ALL of the old Doctor Who in a little under a year… and my love of the series has never waned. I got drunk a couple of years ago with Matt Smith and Arthur Darvill and I'm probably putting a TARDIS tattoo on my body very soon. There's something about the kitschy scifi that just speaks to my heart, and I highly doubt I'll EVER stop loving it.
Even though I don't really have the body for tight dresses, when Her Universe came out with this TARDIS dress I couldn't resist (they've since made it in fit and flare, yay!). I just want the Doctor to call me sexy, dammit!
