Day 101: The First Day of the Rest of This Blog

I made scrambled eggs this morning with a tad of fresh parmesan and fresh basil. Free range, straight from the farmer (via the green grocer's)—well a couple of weeks ago at any rate. Should have been yummy, but I just couldn't stomach them. Lolli had the lion's share. Then this evening (it's the day after night shift, when I say morning I mean breakfast and afternoon, so evening is dinner and not so long after morning) I tried to have my left-over bolognese. Made from scratch, nothing processed except the tomato paste, even boiled and peeled and chopped my own tomatoes for the sauce, served with cauliflower and scallions rather than spaghetti. Couldn't do it. I tried very hard, but Lolli got maybe the hyena's share. Irrationally starving I turned to the only other thing in the fridge. The tin of Quality Streets chocolates. I was like crows on carrion. Needless to say, it has not really sorted out the problem and has just induced the guilts. Think my tummy is a little overwhelmed by something. A little more overwhelmed now.

As a result, I think I might lie on the couch and catch up on The Following. The first two episodes were on while I was working and so I am lagging behind following The Following. Did anybody watch it? It came on one evening when I was in the tea-room and about thirty people jumped up and said 'Turn this off, I'm taping it!' So maybe we are all in the same boat. Reviews Critiques to follow ... another day ... by critique I mean literary not negative ... necessarily. Stop!

The Outfit
Dress: Op-shopped, it isn't the most comfy fit or the most stylish style but with two hundred and sixty-five outfits to go I thought I would wear it this way, adjust it, and then wear it however that adjustment finds it—two-fer!
Jacket: Op-shopped
Gumboots: Borrowed

Photographer de Jour: B——

Who wore it better?

Doing the link-in love-in today with:


  1. Lost Hickers have survived on Chocolate in the freezing elements. It's not a bad thing every now and again. Love the colour of the Jacket. A Man could wear a Shirt in that same colour any day now.

  2. Love the pattern of the dress!!! And I'm a big fan of "The Following", wish it was often than once a week!!!


Post a Comment

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love your feedback and comments. I read them all lovingly and try to respond to as many as I can. At the very least I go over and see where you have come from. Love it!

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…
