Day 54: Day-Tripping

Last minute decision over a very late breakfast: Let's take Lollii down to Fairhaven for a run. No better way to combat the warmness than with a sea breeze. It is always four or five degrees cooler down there. She was insatiable. And what a good surfer. She leapt over waves on the way in and used them to ride back out. Clever girl. But it's that fine line. No, the other one. Where you know it is probably too much but she keeps bringing the ball back and dropping it at your feet. We were having some dinner outside a cafe in Anglesea. They had doggy bowls full of water. I got her some dog food and V—— gave her a bit of his flathead. She started drinking and drinking and drinking. It seemed a lot. I figured she was salty-watered out. Then, in front of everyone at the cafe she threw up all the water, the dog food and the flathead. Ah. Awkward.

But she is all good now. Full return of appetite if the hot breathing and drooling on me while I have been snacking is anything to go by. I think she will sleep for a week. And there is a little part of me that preferred scooping up lumps from a sidewalk over doing the same from the back of V——'s car. It was funny though, she threw up just after a barrage of abuse an inebriated man who had been admiring her gave me when he found out what her name was. Dare to question the name Lollipop do you? Smite you down with vomit unbeliever! It was a handy way to get out of that conversation.

The Outfit
Bikini: Siren's Swimwear
Top: retail, and put into the wet clothing pile and left in V——'s car so that Irene wasn't then able to wear it (just means she gets to show off the bikini better, even if she is not chesty enough to fill it)
Skirt: Op-shopped
Photographer de Jour: V——

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…
