Day 15

August 19, 2009

I’m half way through! By means of celebration, a dress that I actually wear all the time. This is my perfect Summer dress and I think I’ve had it about 7 years. I bought it at a Vintage stall at Glastonbury. I had seen it when I first got there but it was, as many things there are, ridiculously overpriced. So I forgot about it until the very last day when I happened to be passing again, and there it was, half price.

People stop and compliment this dress, particularly older ladies who comment that they used to have something similar. On occasion, complete strangers have stopped me and said how they saw me in this dress at such and such a place. I can’t imagine owning anything else for so long, and I hope there is still another 7 years wear in it.

Day 13

August 17, 2009

How did it get to Monday again? Mondays should be bright and colourful to give a gentle push into the working week and speed the days along. I don’t think I have anything much more colourful than this dress. My mum found it for me at a car boot sale, the woman who was selling it had previously lived in France and had bought this there when she was pregnant with her second daughter. It’s a maternity dress, there are white buttons all down one side which I suppose you undo as you get bigger. This is also very handy after a big dinner.
