Day 214: Relief For You and Me

I'm sparing you, for one little post, from book reviews and lengthy rambles. I'm sparing myself from writing them too.

Coat week seems to be going okay.

Did you see SYTYCD? How cruel to eliminate people at the beginning of the show and then have them dance with their partner anyway. Carlos and Brittany, to their credit, danced amazingly, regardless. Hayley and Curtis did a madly sexy Jazz routine with some serious groping; Aaron and Jasmine H were awesome, awesome, awesome as always; the Argentine Tango with other-Jasmine and Alan was sublime with some unbelievable lifts; and the jazz routine with Mackenzie and Paul told such a fun story in a brilliant way. Click the hyperlinks for a look. Excuse all the adjectives. My ability to not choose one 'best' thing continues and I can't pick the best'o'week. Stunning!

My Jelly Beans arrived. With some jelly beans. As did two of my pairs of Irregular Choice shoes. It seems every one in the universe is getting in on the Jelly Bean craze. If the blogging world is any indication. The company must be happy. What colour did you get? What colour do you wish they had? I would have liked a see-thru yellow. But maybe it would look like solid urine.

I renewed my licence yesterday. Eek. Why can't they let you see the photo you'll be stuck with. I asked the staff member if I would be happy with it for ten years. She said, 'You look very pretty'. Two weeks until I know if she is a liar.

This post sounds like the stilted fool I make of myself if I ever have to converse at a social function. Don't ask me out is my recommendation.

The Outfit
Coat: Gifted, purchased from an op-shop
Leggings: Black Milk
Belt: Retail
Socks: Retail
Shoes: Irregular Choice

Photographer de Jour: V——

  1. I've been at social events with you - you are always fascinating.

    1. You're too sweet. I think that may be your painkillers speaking. Hope you are doing okay :) xx

  2. Don't talk to me about license photos. Here we aren't allowed to smile and now everyone looks like a serial killer.

    I've been told I look like a lesbian wrestler in mine.


  3. List Addict is her own most strident critic. You are a rare priceless glistening Gem in reality!

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…
