I bought this skirt at a jumble sale ages ago, intending to sell it.
It didn't sell, so I'm wearing it. I think it will be a great lightweight summer skirt, I don't know why I haven't worn it before.
Oh yes I do - it's been freezing, for months.
Inspired by Helga, Queen of the red, white and blue colour scheme!
(Although Helga' accessory du jour was a rather fetching Bloody Mary; I wish I'd thought of that.)
I'm not really eligible for Lynne's Goodwill Career Wear Challenge, being an unemployed layabout.
That said, I was at school today doing my weekly volunteering, and this outfit comes in at well under Lynne's $10/£10 limit, so I am participating in the spirit of her project!
The polka dots and the swirl potential are obvious; here's a better shot of the hidden tiger!
The colour and the 50p price tag overcame my usual reluctance to buy One Size tights - they rarely fit, and I hate that sinking feeling as you pull them up only to realise the crotch will never rise higher than mid-thigh...
These actually made it all the way up (just) so hurray! And the added bonus, which my poor old eyes hadn't spotted while the tights were in their packet, is the groovy tiger stripe effect.
As always, I was accompanied in the garden by curious cats and colourful flowers...
...and the odd neighbour wondering what on earth I was up to.
A photo shoot on Monday for a prestigious online publication (third issue due for release later this month or June, I believe...) had an audience of bemused walkers, the occasional coach party, and these disinterested creatures.
I'd like to say more, but if I reveal any other details, Miz Bagg might have me killed.
She guards her magazine's cutting edge exclusivity most fiercely. Think Anna Wintour, but far far scarier...
