Wear 90: A Reason, A Season, A Lifetime

I have a blog stewing but I keep moving it forward a day because things come up. It is about two friends starting their blogs and me sharing what I know with them. Yes, yes, that could take stretching to fill a sentence, but I can get wordy when need be, so it has been sidelined again for a discussion about sugar. Sugar. Ah. You seemed like a friend. You made me happy. We could chat on the couch for hours. You stroked my hair and held me, whispered lovely things to me, when I was sad. You celebrated special occasions with me. But when I needed some space, when I asked you to give me this room to lose these kilos so I didn't have to give money to people I don't like, you turned. And what a nasty, conniving, vindictive, two-faced biach you showed yourself to be! You gave me a migraine. I am convinced of that now. And, today! Yes. That was your piece-de-resistance. From rage to catatonic to anger to depression to crying to wanting to go to sleep and never wake up. These are the things you made me feel today. As I lay on that self-same couch where we used to be friends and tried to stop my brain thinking by watching Horatio, I decided to do a bit of a background check on you. People told me you are not that different to heroin or alcohol. They warned me to stay away. And, if that was too late, they told me the break up is not going to be easy. But I have read enough Pinterest pins to know that if you treat me bad, you're not getting taken back! So do your darndest sugar. Make me feel like the lowest person on the planet. In a few weeks time I will get to the other side and you will be nothing. Nothing I tell ya!

V—— must be the most patient man on earth. He drove with me to Fairhaven Beach and back and then watched Elemental with me as I travelled that gamut of emotions. And he didn't leave until the bit where I was begging and nearly pulling my hair out because I just wanted to be alone, lie down and die. The roller coaster did have ups. We played with Lolli on the fourteen centimeters of sand the extremly high tide lent us of the beach. She has this new habit of rolling around when she is tired of running after things, so she had to climb into the dunes to do it. One time she forgot and ended up wave-washed. We took her out with us for late lunch/extremely early dinner at the Airley Pub and she didn't vomit. Yay! The trip to Spotlight for fabulously soft wools was also a great highlight. Until I got hungry. Poor man.

Who wore it better? Linky today with:


  1. Now and then I think of when we were together

    Like when you said you felt so happy you could die

    I told myself that you were right for me

    But felt so lonely in your company

    But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

    You can get addicted to a certain kinda sadness

    Like resignation to the end, always the end

    So when we found that we could not make sense

    Well you said that we would still be friends

    But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

    Hope sugar is just somebody that you used to know soon.

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…
