Day 30

September 3, 2009

My last day of the 30-day project seems to have conincided with the last day of Summer as well as me being back at work . It’s too miserable out, so a few jewels to cheer things up.

This gem is from the jumble sale I went to last week, it’s making me happier just feeling the weight of the shoulder pads.
So, what now? Should I carry on? Perhaps I can but not on a daily basis. It’s been an education at least, I now know I have a lot of shorts and not enough trousers and am now even more certain that people do not respond to what you wear, but how you wear it. As long as you love your outfit, you’ll feel amazing, even if you do take a blurry picture.

Day 3

August 7, 2009

It’s a Friday, good enough an excuse to bring out the big guns. This is my ‘Floella Benjamin’ as she is queen of the jumpsuits. I love a jumpsuit, they say ‘ready for anything you can throw at me’. Except being really quick in the loo as they require the wearer to get fully undressed. Otherwise, they’re definite action wear.

This is also a tribute to John Hughes as I like to think it’s something he might have dressed Molly Ringwald in.

These shoes are vintage Carvela, I wear them too often for what is really an evening shoe because I absolutely love them. Occasionally, I prolong their life by masking the scuffs and marks with a good spray of gold craft paint. It works pretty well, but sometimes I end up with gold knuckles, as is the case today. I suppose it’s cheaper than jewellery.
