Day 50: What is Black and White and Read All Over?

A newspaper. A zebra with an 'I Love Lucy' wig on. Today's content is inspired by Running in Stilettos's one-off link-up (see below)

I'm the kinda girl who ...

... believes everyone has interesting quirks (just takes longer to find some than others)

... buys amazing shoes because you don't have to be a supermodel to fit into them

... appreciates that a sky is empty without clouds

... is socially inept

... thinks dessert should come first because you never want to not be able to fit it in

... is walking from one end of the UK to the other, in stages

... has her heart broken daily by how beautiful a dog's love is (even if it is from our strange Lollii)

... is exceptionally lucky to be, have and know what she does

... took way too long to realise that what other people think does not matter

List_Addict              Irene

... takes Scrabble seriously, but only to become better

... would like to have her belief in ghosts confirmed, maybe?

... pays too much (critical) attention to the ridiculous things people say (accidently?)

... forgot to learn how to wear make-up or style her hair

... has an obsessive personality

... may not have quite grown up yet

... has a million books to read before she looses her mind

... considers lettuce, cucumber, celery and watermelon to be solid water

... thinks it's all weird, but likes it anyway

  1. Oh yes, it took me a LONG time not to give a toss about what other people think too!
    Interesting to get to know you a little more. And that is an awesome blouse! xxx

  2. Thank you so much for linking up!

    Yes, dessert should come first!! I too appreciate a cloud-less sky :) And it's totally OK to not have grown up yet - being a kid at heart is WAY more fun!!

  5. Thanks so much for linking up to Style Sessions - it's great to have you part of it! :)


  6. I love buying shoes also! They look good no matter what!

  7. Those are some amazing shoes, for sure! And everyone really does have their own set of quirks. That's what makes life so interesting.

    1. You are right! I love finding out the weird and wonderful about people. Thanks so much for visiting!

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…
