Day 8

August 12, 2009

Wednesday, never the best day of the week. In addition, the sky is a very English off-white. What a wishy washy Wednesday needs is a little tropicana.

Though you would not tell by my gloomy expression, I love this newly discovered outfit. The skirt is one from Saturday’s haul. I have a few lycra skirts that are literally just tubes of fabric. They tend to ride up quite a bit, sometimes so much so that you dread standing up and not being sure you’re wearing a skirt anymore. This one has darts and a back split, this one’s going nowhere.

If it rains, I might not be going anywhere either for fear of trashing my shoes. I have only ever worn these twice, once to an art event and once to a work fancy dress. They received compliments at the first and thinly-veiled criticism at the second. I don’t care either way as they are doing a great job of brightening up my day.

I tried to find a link to the company that made them, but I suppose they don’t exist anymore as all I can find is this.
