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.
