This outfit started off with the navy polka dot pencil skirt I bought last week, but although it fits perfectly, it's maybe too good a fit, in that it makes my child-bearing hips look a little too... well, child-bearing!
So I think that's another item destined for Ebay, probably to languish unsold. I am really finding Ebay hard going, I see other items with huge bids on, but they are never mine!
You have seen all the components of this outfit before....
... apart from the white sunnies, a gift from the Hellishly Hot Helga.
I find it very difficult to accessorise blue and white with any colour other than red. Surely it's not some deeply unconscious patriotic urge rising to the surface?
See what I mean? I look as though I'm trying out my Jubilee outfits.
Still got the blues.
A friend who helped out at our jumble sale was looking at a top, but rejected it on the basis that it "wasn't her colour". She is "Autumn" (yes, she'd "had her colours done") and now doesn't stray from that template.
What do you think about this?
I tend to the view that anyone can wear any colour and look great, it just depends how you wear it. But I'm no expert, and maybe I'm happily trolling around in total ignorance of the fact that blue doesn't suit me!
Oh well. I'm not pastcaring for nothing.You won't get me singing the blues!
PS. I did indeed wear the 1950s frock out to the pub on Friday. I had a great night out, and shuffled home at 3am, thankfully with no curry stains on my dress and with my feathers and petticoat unruffled. One young man, wearing way more make-up than me, complimented me on my fascinator, but I caused no other commotion. Just shows - wear what you like, it's only clothing and most of the time, no one's bothered!
But thank you for all your positive comments, it gave me the courage to be wildly and happily overdressed!
