Today was meeting friends for morning tea, and another friend for a walk later (and afternoon tea afterwards, no doubt!) It's a tough life. My office work can wait until tonight, methinks... and it would be a crying shame to waste a beautiful day like today. Of course if I said that every day I would get absolutely no work done whatsoever...! but meh.
This is the "Weird Bodice" dress from last winter, that I love for its flattering olive shade, flattering for me, that is; and cute flippy skirt, but has a strange bodice design that needs covering up. I went for some cheerful happy colours to go on over the top. I've always had a thing about red, and have always worn a lot of it. I think it suits my hair colour. This winter it seems to have dropped off the fashion radar, apart from the currently all-the-rage LRD (little red dress for evening wear). The shops are filled with drab putty neutral shades, and the ubiquitous BLACK. Seriously, I was out with a friend a week or so ago, and we passed a boutique where everything on the racks was black, and I mean everything. It was a marvellous thing, well, it certain had us marvelling, but not in a good way. Are Perthies so boring in our colour choices, that an all-black shop would stay happily in business? (bearing in mind it was in a high-ish rent area too) Bizarre...
