I was going to entitle this post “Foxy Lady”, but I wasn’t sure that anyone outside of Australia would get the Kath & Kim reference!
Thank you to everyone who took the time to post a comment following the last entry, and to those who have taken Sally’s original idea and run with it on their own blogs. Hopefully everyone gave themselves a moment to think positive thoughts about their own, wonderful, self. Let’s all keep doing that!
For myself, I’m having a wonderful week. I’m holding my head up high, I’m smiling at strangers, and I’m feeling confident in my skin. It really does make a difference, even to the way that other people react back to me.
How hilarious is this sweater? It should probably remind me of my Step-Mum’s inherited fox stole (Foxy Loxy) with its disturbing little paws and glassy eyes, but actually it makes me think more of Suki who often drapes herself about my shoulders in just this manner.
I’m regularly lusting after clothing that I see at Friends of Couture (especially the cardigans) but they’re not often conducive to housing the… I don’t want to say Rack of Doom, because we’re all about self-esteem here at Frocks & Frou Frou, so let’s just use my Mum’s euphemistic phrase “shelf”.
On a completely different topic, Melbourne readers should check out the Songs for Stories Benefit Concert being held on the 25th of August by the Melbourne Writers Festival and the Indigenous Literacy Project. A few of my favourite musical entities will be playing, including Cat Empire, and all proceeds go towards a cause that’s very dear to my heart. The Indigenous Literacy Project is a new foundation that is working to provide remote communities with books and other resources to help build stronger literacy levels throughout our Indigenous population. If you’re not in Melbourne but still want to be involved, maybe have a think about hosting a Book Swap in September…
