Day 134: Orange Primas and Burnt Chocolate

Something got into my tummy and knocked my socks off from the inside. I think it is an alien. And it doesn't seem to be wanting to leave. It's also made cotton balls of my creative lobes—I have forgotten all the things I ever thought to talk about. There was something weird and paradoxical that B—— and I kept discussing and that I wanted to share with you. Gone. And I'd had this fantastic idea for something. Gone. Witticisms, observations, cynicisms, reviews, rebukes. All gone.

So at the risk of getting too far behind on this project, especially with content as riveting as this, I am posting and moving on. It is tomorrow already and I haven't done tomorrow's either. And I am not liking my chances of getting much done the day after either. So photos and drivel is all you are getting. My apologies.

The Outfit
Orange Top: Op-shopped
Skirt: Op-shopped
Shoes: Irregular Choice

Photographer de Jour: Moi

  1. Stunning Legs! Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Aw, I hope you feel better soon! You are still rockin' your outfit, and be careful in those shoes.

  3. Know how you feel. That alien's best friend has invaded my tummy. Annoyingly in the early morning after a work function the night before. I sent an email to the boss with the subject "sick, not hungover" his response "yeah right, what happened to play up, turn up".

    1. Sorry to hear - and are you still in bed because of it? Read a book - I think you will enjoy the non-electronic format (saw your FB post) Hope you feel better soon!

    2. Thanks. Getting back to my Irish roots with Cecelia Ahern's "if you could see me now". A little slow but a lovely story with profoundly touching moments.

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…
