Day 160: It Looks Like The Real Night

I am blogging late and slightly under the weather due to an evening wedding with welcome cocktails and an early morning start—thank goodness for Sunday Social's pre-formed writing topics, once again!!

Q: How did you come up with your blog name?
A: Every year I made a new blog for the year's new project. It was overwhelming. So I wanted to start a blog that would be 'the one' for the rest of time. I decided to use a foreign language version of 'forever' or 'always' as the title and started looking at the options: toujours, siempre, am byth, mai mai. In German it is für ewig. Fur Earwig! sounded better and seemed like something silly sensible enough to take me through the rest of my blogging life. It doesn't hurt that it comes up as the first option when you google that phrase—who'd'a thunk?

Q: What is you favourite thing about blogging?
A: I like that it makes me write and think about writing everyday. Because un-motivated I am liable to spend all day, everyday, under the doona with a large pile of books instead.

Q: What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now can't live without?
A: Probably my smart phone. I got it for easy photo-to-blog transitioning, but now it's like a mini-iPad and a little too handy for my liking. Don't like being in love with electronic things because they inevitably disappoint you by getting buggy.

Q: Facebook or Twitter? And why?
A: If those are the only options in the whole wide world, then I will probably go Twitter. It is much more time efficient. Possibly because I don't really understand it and am not actively pursuing an understanding.

Q: If one celeb read your blog who would you want it to be?
A: Can I choose a fictional celeb? I would go Carrie Bradshaw. I would be honoured if she took the time to read what I had to say. I would be more honoured if she had some nice comments about my outfits. And we could talk shoes.

Q: What is something you want people to know about your blog?
A: It is not really about fashion.

The Outfit
Dress: 'Saturday Night Thrive' from ModCloth
Jacket: Op-shopped
Belt: Myers
Necklace and Clutch: David Jones
Shoes: Irregular Choice

Photographer de Jour: V——

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…
