Day 102: Short and Sweets

All I am giving you today are (bad) pictures. Still not feeling fabulous, and Inspiration has taken two asprin and a hot water bottle and gone to bed two hours ago. Sorry about the quality of the pics. I had to 'Paper Artist' a couple to try and make them brighter (shoes for example), and no matter how much I wipe my mirror I can't seem to get rid of a couple of cloudy spots. Eeh! It's the best I can do at the mo'.

Irene, of course, rocks this look. I have been trying to find a way to wear this cricket jumper for ages. There is something I find interesting about sports clothing as fashion items when I am in the op/thrift shop/store, but it is hard to work them when I get home. Have a couple of other 'sporty' pieces I will have to do something with as the year progresses. Now I am just making words with these buttons on the keyboard because I feel I have to. But a more urgent 'must' is to not bore you, so I will join Inspiration and Va-Va-Voom in bed and the three of us will come back better and stronger tomorrow!

The Outfit
Dress: Op-shopped, worn before
Cricket Jumper: Op-shopped
Tights: Macy's, Times Square
Boots: Hunter

Photographer de Jour: Moi

Who wore it better?

Sharing the Friday love with:



  1. I hope you feel better soon Beautiful Lady.

  2. Pale blue Hunters - swoon. (You know they are my biggest fetish)

    1. I wouldn't have guessed that - I always imagine you in heels! What colour would you get (I you had to choose only one?) There is a great melon pink one at the mo'.

    2. Oh I love heels too, there's just something about Hunters that is both decadent and down to earth at the same time. I'm convinced I must have been an English Lord in a past life and lived in them while at home on the country estate engaging in fox hunts and pheasant shooting and the like. They just make me feel at home.

      I have two pairs of Hunters. A standard black glossy pair (couldn't go past tradition, see - English Lord) and a pair of black and white ballet flats with a buckle on the toe, as featured on my Facebook page recently, and somewhat more appropriate for modern urban life.

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…
