I have typed and re-typed this paragraph a few times. Should I actually put it in writing? Would I be burdening you? I have been a bit blue, to be honest. So, without the ability to blog, I got a bit lost (in a psychological kind of way), and then my style and colour mojo went out the window (I actually wore austere dark colours one day). It's not like I am ashamed to say "I have been getting a bit depressed", but I am a bit hesitant about saying it out loud. What the hell, I'll just post about it on my blog. I went to see my doctor today and got my happy pills increased because as I told him, I could look over my shoulder and see that all familiar dark cloud swirling behind me, trying to creep forward without my noticing and then wrapping itself around me. Blogging is good for me because I can express myself better in photos and colour and words. Blogging helps.

The weather over the last couple of weeks or so has been unseasonably lovely...and I bared my legs before Labour Weekend. Don't remember this happening in recent history. (Labour Day is the 4th Monday in October and the preceding weekend is the first public holiday since Queens Birthday in June).
|Yellow cotton blend dress - possibly from the 1980s?? found on the $2 rack at Toffs, worn with black belt, shoes and accessories, including a hat found at the St V de Paul.|
When I wore this outfit to work, 3 colleagues asked me if I had a job interview! It is perhaps a bit more demure than some of my other outfits - do I exude administrative excellence in this combo? Just in case you are wondering I was not going to a job interview (although I may go to one in the future). I merely wanted to go for the light floaty effect - in fabric and in colour.
I usually forget to take photos in the weekend, but one Saturday this is what I wore to the art gallery:
|Pink cotton/linen dress with tag torn out from Toffs $2, worn with turquoise cardi from the Hospice shop and green tights from the Hospice Shop. The kitsch knitted bag was also a Toffs discovery.|
The photographic exhibition I went to see was of Gregory Crewdson. He takes photos of the most amazing scenes which are incredibly detailed but also spooky because they appear vacant when you first look at them, and then BAM you are hit between the eyes with something really confrontational. You can read more about him here. The exhibition is called In a Lonely Place and I just loved it.
'kay, that's all I can get out of my head for the time being. I'll be doing a massive read of all the wonderful blogs I follow over the weekend.
Bye for now
