Is this outfit too young for me?
It's a good job Vix is away, she'd really be telling me off, wouldn't she? And I do like the look, actually - well, I wore it out'n'about, so I can't have thought I looked too bad.
And it reminded me of a New Wave/Blondie sort of vibe, so I've been singing along loudly with Parallel Lines while typing this. So many memories! I was 14 in 1978 when it came out, and I thought Deborah Harry was one of the most beautiful women ever. Still do, actually. Oh for those lips and cheekbones...
While an abiding love for Debbie Harry is clearly nothing to be ashamed of, thinking I can dress as a homage to her in her prime may be something of a stretch. I'm 47...
Is dressing one's age another rule just waiting to be broken? And how should a 47 year old dress anyway? I'm 48 in June - should I dress differently then?!
Oh well, it's too late now. And it's no good hiding behind the sunnies - they all know it's you!
I've had this little skater skirt for a while but rarely wear it as I think the flared short style isn't good on me. I think it's better with the long waistcoat to streamline the hippage a bit.

I have learnt something today. If you want to add deep worry lines to your already lined face and look really cross in the process, take photos looking into the low winter English sunshine. That does the trick. Not such a sunny Sunday Girl!
Of course Sunday Girl was the obvious choice as post title and video, but I had to go with Picture This, my favourite track off the album. Apart from 11.59. And Fade Away and Radiate. And Heart of Glass.
