Day 23

August 27, 2009

A Thursday double whammy. Last night, I rushed in from work and did a quick change to go and see New Young Pony Club.

I liked my outfit and sporting my never-worn shoes so much that I decided to have a variant on it today.

Different top, different skirt, same shoes. Until I started skating, I had a massive aversion to t-shirts. Now I have embraced them entirely and they’ve become something of a staple. They might not quite be conventional tees yet, but small steps, small steps.
I had never worn the white & neon top before, I was worried it looked a bit too much like a pillowcase as it’s lovely crisp cotton but it received plenty of compliments. As did my pink shoes, I love them to pieces and have the same in black and gold but have never actually worn the pink ones. Welcome to my feet shoes, make yourselves at home.

Day 17

August 21, 2009

Friday again and time to get in the mood for the weekend. There is no better way to do this than with a bow tie. I have a collection of ties that I’ve slowly added to over the years. Normally they get worn in my hair, but now it’s time for them to take their proper place. I’ve already had a couple of comments, to which I replied that I just thought it was time I started dressing more formally for the office.

Double debut for my new Ebay leggings and a skirt that I bought a couple of weeks ago at the Car Boot Sale.
I do realise that, with the fringe and bow tie combo, I am inadvertently channelling Sam Fox at the 1989 Brit Awards but then I am not sure this is a bad thing at all.
