Day 6

August 10, 2009

After a weekend of practicality, it’s back to the frocks. When I was little, I had a red shift dress with oversized white polka dots, a frilled skirt around the waistband and a huge white bow. I loved it so much that I would wear it at every opportunity. My red adoration has endured and polka dots continue to be the pattern I wear most.

The shoes are one of the first things I ever bought on Ebay, many years ago. Doing up the ribbons around the ankles reminds me of Saturday morning ballet lessons and never quite being able to tie my own shoes. I can just about manage it now.
