Yes, today I decided to wear pants. In the main photo the colour is a bit wrong and its blurry but I don't care because I really like this outfit.
The black pants have a side zip opening which I find more flattering as it sits nicer than a front zip. The legs are slightly narrowed to the ankle and then there is a tie. I wore bright pink and yellow polka dotted socks for a splash of lower leg colour! The blouse is actually orange and a vintage one I found in the hospice shop. The jacket is Elizabeth Byrne (also from Hospice Shop) and has a cute sailboat pattern.
I seem to be wearing red quite a lot. Last week I wore what I call my 'volcano dress' with grey to represent the ash and red tights for lava. My furry black shoes are like basalt. I must have been on fire at work that day.
Recently we have had lots of amazing weather and a huge moon:
I was so cold one day last week I bought a pair of earmuffs - wow, they kept my ears toasty and warm:
|Vintage home-nade polyester dress, Hospice Shop|
Vintage Glengyle cardigan, Toffs $2
Mother of pearl Brooch, stall at Art Deco fair $2
Boots, tights and earmuffs all retail
|Vintage Canterbury polyester jacket, Trademe|
Boucle skirt, Presbyterian Support
Tights and giant pearls (below) both retail
To my delight I won a $1 auction on Trademe for 3 jackets, so even with postage they were a bargain. Gratuitous tag porn included below:
The pattern on the Kendell one (bottom right) is the most outrageous lurex paisley and floral I have ever seen (detail top left). The collar is HUGE. The greeny-blue crimplene one (top right) came with a cute red and green brooch - the trader got a special thank you for the trade. The Kit Parader one in the bottom left is a gorgeous colour that reminds me of the teal blue on ducks feathers. It is 50/50 acrylic and wool. All three are destined for a good wash and then a dry on the line in the weekend. There is only one problem - there is no more room in my wardrobe :-( I will have to ask my 11yo daughter nicely if I can store some of my clothes in hers!!
So there I am, in pants, on Visible Monday. Hope you all have a great week,
