Day 239: Should I Ask?

It has been suggested that Irregular Choice should, based on the large number of shoes I have purchased from them over the last four years, gift me a pair (or twenty) as a Thank You for my custom and blatant, un-compensated plugging. So I have written a test letter below. Let me know if you think I should send it.

Dear Dan, and all at that most marvellous and colourful of institutions, Irregular Choice,

My name is Charlie (aka list_addict) and I am maybe in your top, say, one hundred money-where-my-mouth-is fans of yours, with a collection of thirty-five pairs of Irregular Choice shoes and boots. See this post for the full list. There were actually more. Two pairs were given to friends because they were too small, three pairs I re-sold on ebay because they didn't fit well for some reason or other (mainly being unable to predict the effect of high arches over the Internet), and one pair was sacrificed ruined when I walked home in them on a stormy night after I lent my sneakers to a drenched colleague who had a whole night shift ahead of her (I loved those pointed-up-toed, kitten-heeled flats, can you make them again?). So all up I'm into you for forty-one pairs. And I talk about them all the time on my blog, on Pinterest, and on my Instagram account. Currently I have a virtual basket sitting up on my desktop with four pairs of A/W 2013 shoes in it: Sparkly Cosmo, Summer Berries, Cheeky Moose and Baby Beauty. And currently there is 'Free International Shipping', which is great with me being all the way over and down and under here in Australia. But I was just thinking, what with the investment made already, and the good publicity for free, whether you might consider helping out any with that basket full of goodies so that it doesn't hurt as much as full retail. Just wondering?

Lots of love,

Irene               List_Addict

There are lots of dresses this year on the runways. Yay. Many of them are things I can replicate easily with an op-shop trip and a little tweeking. Yay. Lengths are long, styles are loose, patterns are wild. Yay, yay, yay. The good news is we can all be fashionistas along the lines of Valentino, MSGM, and Givenchy (great boots!). Who doesn't love a good dress. Well, the people who don't, but, hey, your prerogative.

The Outfit
Shirt (under): Op-shopped
Dress: Op-shopped
Belt: Myers
Earrings/Necklace: CCJJSS/David Jones
Shoes: Irregular Choice

  1. That is an interesting look of blending green and blue with B&W. I love blue and green together!

  2. I hope you sent the letter! : ) They'd be fools...FOOLS I say if they turn you down on at least one pair of freebies. might want to consider adding a little button of Irregular Choice on your even more incentive. They need to know you are their number one online promoter.

    I love the colour combo here.


  3. Super funky outfit! LOVE it! I would totally send the letter! :)
    Thanks for linking up for Passion For Fashion!

  4. You should also be given a free tour of The I.C.S Factory with First Class return Tickets.
    The least they can do!

  5. irregular choice...swwooon!i agree with suzanne above, but a badge on the sidebar, they'd like that and then who shoes!!Thanks so much for linking up to Passion for Fashion, hope to see you again this friday!xx

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…
