Dress is DIY | socks, shoes and bolero are thrifted | necklace c/o Merrin & Gussy
Other parts that I love about this outfit are the velvet bolero/shrug, which I got from the same op-shop as these bedsheets and is also handmade, as it didn't have a tag and none of the seams have been serged with an overlocker. I'm so happy to give it a welcome home. If my handmade stuff ever ends up in an op-shop, I hope it'll go to someone who really appreciates it! Also, you probably can't see it in the photos, but my socks are sparkly!
Yesterday, while QI was playing in the background, I kinda had my mind blown. I did have to fact-check this first, of course (as I recommend everyone do when watching this show - though most of the stuff is accurate they do like to exaggerate...). But it's true!
Basically, whenever playing cards have been shuffled they are, in all (near) mathematical-certainty, put into an order which has never existed before since the beginning of time. The order of cards is defined as 52 factorial (8.07^67), which, as Stephen Fry says, is a number so large that if each star in the Milky Way had a trillion planets, each with a trillion people who had been shuffling a trillion packs of cards non-stop 1,000 times per second since the Big Bang, they would only be repeating shuffles right about now.
And that's why maths is cool.
