Day 43: Barefoot in the Park

There has been some talk, following yesterday's post, that I am unromantic. Well it wasn't talk so much as paranoia, on my part, that people may find me cynical and sour. I am all for romance. I am a Libran after all. I love cloudy sunsets and the sound of waves on a stoney shore, I love hand-holding in front of episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I love Sunday mornings and relaxing holidays where you can re-discover your lover away from the rigmarole of everyday-everyness. But I am also very cynical. I am heading for a role as a B grade, or D would probably be more accurate, celebrity on Grumpy Old Women. And I am trying to do it before I actually get old(er). Is it unromantic to get sensible about romance? I suppose it is, but there comes a time, doesn't there, when the drama and hyperbole of romance takes too much time and effort. See, there I go again sounding unromantic. I am going to stop while I am behind.

Channeling my inner barefoot hippie today. Realise now I could have put a little more effort into it but I was having the hardest time getting out of bed for night shift, and then ran completely out of time. B—— has been location scouting and found these two abandoned chairs that she thought would make an interesting prop. She takes this very seriously. I wouldn't be surprised if it is on her Artist CV. In fact, it should be.

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…
