Of course, as every woman knows, a day involving a hair appointment has a high chance of being a good hair day and then, ipso facto, a very good day indeed.
Having my hair done is a favourite self-indulgence. Well, OK, ahem, I do have a few self-indulgences (no-one mention shoes, please), but this one is quite high up on my list! It comes from being incapable of doing my own hair.
At my mum's suggestion I experimented with a new way of wearing this skirt; skirt "m" from the Japanese pattern book "Unique Clothes Any Way You Like" by Natsuno Hiraiwa. The garments therein are designed to each be worn in a number of different ways. This skirt is quite unshaped to the body and so can be swivelled around so the zip and er, flap (for want of a better description!) sits anywhere around one's hips. Today I tried it pushed back in on itself to create a kind of big pocket. This could make it handy for keys or a tissue, in a pinch!
What do you think?
Below is how it looks with the flap "out".
