Day 153: I Wanna Peep Through The Deep Tangled Wildwood

Feeling particularly lazy because doing nothing begets the desire to do less, I'm borrowing writing ideas from Sunday Social on their one year anniversary today. Here goes:

Q: What is your favourite Social Media outlet?
A: In terms of use, obsessive behaviour towards and sheer wasted time spent on (counting those as indicators of favour) I am probably going to have to go with the love-hate relationship I have with Lookbook. Seems that my decision to abandon it as soon as I left for holidays has not come to fruition.

Q: Do you subscribe to any daily news feeds?
A: I don't do news. I work in emergency services and that is all the bad news I can deal with in a day—and, locally, it is actually more than you ever see broadcast, if you want to know a scary fact. I don't like that it makes me ignorant of what else is happening globally, but it's the price I pay for staying on the good side of the line between 'okay, let's do this' and 'omg, what is the point!'

Q: Favourite Magazine to have by the pool?
A: I'm much more a book-by-the-pool person, but if I was forced, and had no cost restraints I would go for the latest Marie Claire, the lastest World of Interiors and the September issue of Vogue.

Q: Favourite Summertime Song?
A: I do not think I seasonalise my faves. I suppose there are thematic summer songs I like but there is nothing I like just because it is summery. Did I ever tell you I am not really a summer fan? It's not normal, but it's the truth. Give me blustery, cold and miserable any day. Although it would be better if I had a decent heater to come home to.

Q: Favourite Summer concert you have ever been to?
A: It may be the only one, but I would have to say the Tamworth Country Music Festival. Before you judge me, try it! It's full of eccentric people and impromptu venues and singing in the street. People are relaxed and friendly and funny. There's music everywhere, so you can shop at K-Mart and Target (coz they're different there) while bopping away to violin savants. Always an adventure—you never know what you'll come away with.

The Outfit
Top: Op-shopped

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…
