Wear 7: Big, Bad Monsters and Voices

Because it was hot again, Medium-to-arguably-large Red Hiding Hood decided she would swim out to see Grandma on the pontoon in the middle of the bay. She put on her bathers, and then, because her mind is full of popular culture references, she put on a woolly jumper so she could have a photo shoot just like Marilyn Monroe did. The ground between Medium-to-arguably-large Red Hiding Hood's house and the beach is spiky and thorny and sharp, boom, boom, pokey and bristley and hot, boom, boom. So shoes were also very important. Walking outside she could see all the big, bad wolves at the building site next door. They weren't paying the least amount of attention to the oddly clad Medium-to-arguably-large Red Hiding Hood though, because they were busy ranting and yelling about the foundations being badly meshed and not level, and having to be done again. Sometimes when your enemies, like big, bad construction wolves, are upset, it is hard to not feel a little bit happy. But that's not nice, and laughing a lot about it is even meaner. You can see Medium-to-arguably-large Red Hiding Hood laughing here about the builders. And because she was laughing so much she had to have Mickey Mouse hands to hold her laughing tummy in place so all her insides didn't spill out. Her Mummy didn't approve of her behaviour and said she couldn't go to the beach after all.

List_Addict               Irene

Some people think Irene isn't getting a voice in this forum. (You do all seem to keep forgetting she doesn't actually have a mouth). I asked her what her favourite fairy tale was. She said: 'The Town Musicians of Bremen'. I asked her who her favourite designer was. She said: 'Alexander McQueen, may the all-knowing bless his good-consciousness'. She's not chatty. In some ways she is nothing more than a clothes pony. If you have any questions for her, I am happy to ask. That's all I can do. She has fingers; she could start her own blog if she had something to say!

The Outfit

Who wore it better?

Day 279: Entertainment and Wishes

I have brain-freeze from a three hours/three hours/ten hours-during-the-day sleeping pattern over the last three days twenty-four hour periods (that ole chestnut, again) and so even though it is not Sunday, I am getting in early and loosening the clenched up brain cells by cheating on topic ideas with Sunday Social. Their link actually goes up tommorrow so be sure to check back and see what everyone else had to say when Sunday eventually does roll around.

Q: What is currently on your wish list?

A: I need nothing. Nothing. So let's talk about want. I want to be able to find some amazing thrifted pieces on my upcoming (eight sleeps) trip to the States. Luck and fate will have a lot to do with it, but I would be very happy to find some, or all, of the following as well: a chambray shirt, a real bomber jacket (just got one that I had different ideas about when I bought it from SheInside—it's really just a fleece jacket), belts, a vintage leather jacket, more tutus, sumptuous f…

Wear 1: Dropped My Shopping.

Day One of three hundred and sixty-five pictures of Irene (left) and I (right) on the internet. We're using it as a way to develop or realise a fashion style, and as a friendly competition as to who wore it better? Like every journey or quest, this year's project will teach me a little, make me think a bit and lend me some laughs and enjoyment. I hope also to slowly make sure everything in my clothes closet and my shoe closet is utilised: even perhaps the bags and boxes of outrageous, or not, op-shopped (thrifted) items secreted in cupboards and under beds. Other hopes: fewer words (believe it or not), more pictures and time to catch up on unfinished blogs from the last three years!

I had my outfit planned, but as I dressed this morning for work, I, well, chickened out. I lost the cape and replaced it with a black cardigan. I thought my work colleagues would think I looked strange and slightly overdressed. Lesson One: I am not brave in person (posting a silly picture on the in…

Day 348: My Favourite Colour

Who: Melanie at Bag and Beret

What: The Travelling Yellow Skirt Freak Show

When: A while ago (have I told you trying to buy a house keeps getting in my way!)

Where: At, around and in the vicinity of ACCA

Why: Do you even have to ask?

Who Else: B—— for the photos, Melbourne Bike Share for the props (although I did pay for that, and we spent so long riding around getting moving pictures that they charged me again so I am not really sure why I am telling you about them: this isn't a plug, except that they are quite cool!)

What the ?: Sunshine incarnate in the form of a yellow skirt travels the world searching for women, bold and beautiful, who make it their own for a day, or a week and share their own take on its joyous light with everyone out there who thinks that being an exceptional individual with the daring and bravado to walk your own way, strut your own stuff and be your own you is a good thing! That's my take on it, but you can read the full story on the link to the skir…
