Ask, and Ye Shall Receive

A few readers wanted to see the unadulterated Very Hungry Lillipilli Skirt with Red Boots Edition, so here we goes:

Cardigan: Barkins
Skirt: DIY
Boots: Duo Boots
Is bright, no?
I wore this conference on Monday, so it’s actually my birthday outfit. It was a great pick-me-up, but I was surprised by the number of people working at one of Australia’s best children’s publishing houses who didn’t recognise the fabric!
Incidentally – I had the most nerve-wracking experience getting to the airport at – oh – five in the morning to catch my flight; I’d given myself an extra half hour to play with, but still managed to barely make it in time because the taxi driver managed to lock his keys and my suitcase in the taxi and after spending twenty minutes on the phone to his mechanic had to smash her rear window to rescue my precious cargo.

    duo boots. . . i’m gonna have to remember that. i used to run / train for the marathon in high school so my calves are too big for most boots, plus i have fairly flat feet which functions to make it harder for me to walk barefoot and harder to find the proper width shoe. haha so this entry was chock full of great tips for me. xP thankx! 😀

    Thanks Sarah-Jo! I had a few "er, too much?" moments, but hey! As long as *I* think it looks ok, right?? You should trust your instinct and wear what you love!
