Show and Tell this week is an outfit. No mention of what kind of outfit … a nightclubby type of outfit? A sporty outfit? A wedding dress?
Totally lacking in inspiration (and you will remember that my wedding dress has been shown on this blog before), I present to you my everyday (well, yesterday) outfit.
The basic version.
(With an unmade bed in the background. Sorry).
Yes, I do the skirt over the pants thing quite often. (Because my knees are 42 years old and thus not bared terribly often). This one isn’t a dress or skirt though, it’s a bum wrap. Yes, you heard. It’s Italian, felted wool, tres posh and was in the $20 bin at a local boutique, still bearing its $149.00 price tag. (It’s a rectangle of boiled wool, with three darts in it, no hemming anywhere in sight, and held together with a kilt pin. Would you pay 149 bucks for it? Me either.)
The hippie version.
If I change the shoes and add a tie-dye bag, I fit in nicely in my new neighbourhood. There is a plethora of women wearing Birkenstocks and organically grown caftans in this area.
The basic outdoor version.
Or I can put the funky op shop shoes back on, add a jacket, witty brooch and pretty scarf from the $2 shop and I look perfectly presentable dropping off a bundle of work at the office after taking the children to school, putting the bins out and walking the dog.
I even wore my hair OUT today. Which I haven’t done since March 3rd.
