Coming to my senses...
Employing that pleasing dichotomy of minimal with steam-punk in my outfit today... yeah?
Is good stuff.
Now, I've had a re-think. And thank you all for helping me to come to my senses! I did feel a little out of my comfort zone after posting yesterday, and after sleeping on it I felt even worse about it ...
The specific cost of my personal things is, I have decided, personal. It feels very uncomfortable for me to be publicising it. That's just the way I was brought up, so I'm not going to excuse that.
Even amongst my closest friends I would not dream of announcing how much an outfit cost. That would be like extreme bad manners... so why did I think I would be OK with doing the same on the blinking internet?? (face palm)
Besides, the numbers I put down here are meaningless to most people who might even read my blog, apart from other Australians. And only fellow Perthies will understand about the fabric and yarn limitations here... And I do not want to attract judgement, condemnation or pity from the inevitable comparisons, which I would certainly do if I really started publicising how much things actually cost here... so I will be keeping tabs on my clothing creations this year, in exactly the guidelines I laid down yesterday, but I will probably be keeping the figures to myself.
Unless I change my mind again :)
A woman's prerogative, you know.... ;)
