Wear 58: Random Spillings of the Think-Box

Is this a fashion blog? It has clothing, or, even, outfits. But they're not really fashionable. Are they? It doesn't discuss fashion except, a couple of times, as a concept. It doesn't talk beauty or trends or designers or weeks associated with Fashion with a capital 'F'. So what is it? It channels into something creative in my brain. Something to do with beautiful things maybe. And it forces me to think about what I am wearing everyday. It forces me to utilise all the things that are in my wardrobe. It pushes me over comfort barriers. I think all of these things are good for me. I think. It makes me write everyday. And come up with something to write about everyday. But what is it?

I cannot stop thinking about food today. I am starving. Starving. Looking at Pinterest does not help one little bit. I have two questions about all the stunning looking cakes and cupcakes on there: are they meant to be inspiration for the Everyman's foray into his or her own cake-making (because they look like you need a PhD in fondant to replicate anything similar), and, do they actually taste as good as they look. I am thinking the taste may be an anticlimax. At the minute though, I would probably just keep eating anyway.

The Outfit
Dress: Retail, a million years ago, for a Travel Industry Ball
Cardigan: Op-shopped
Necklace: Cheap and Cheerful
Shoes: Irregular Choice 'I'm in Vegas'

Photographer de Jour: B——

  1. Love your postings!

    1. Thanks so much!! And thanks for stopping by.

  2. Outfit posting is also about presenting a positive side of ourselves. Thanks so much for linking up with WW :)

    1. Thanks for visiting. You're right - and I love how blogs show real people in the fashion circle of life rather than just the official media portrayal. It is a good voice for everyone to have!

  3. Eating lovely food is one of Life's pleasures, we should not be made to feel guilty about this. My guilt lasts until my next sumptuous meal.
    Eat, drink and be merry. Life is too short.

    1. Think of all that fabulous food we have coming in a few short days!!!!!! Yummmmmmmmm. Maybe that is why I am so hungry.

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…
