Boots: Boots For Broads
I have another date this afternoon – one I’m particularly looking forward to – but it’s so cold I’ve had to eschew (isn’t eschew a great and under-utilised word?) my usual frippery for a rugged wool cardigan, jeans and boots.
In hindsight I really should have waited till the warmer months to embark on this whole dating lark; I have all these pretty, feminine frocks and skirts that are just crying out to be taken on picnics and to cafe’s and instead my jeans and sweaters are getting all the glory.
I’ve been thinking – considering the crazy cold snap that had suddenly engulfed Melbourne – that maybe it’s time to remix some more cardigans. Some pretty buttons, bows and ribbons can frou frou up the most “meh” outfit…
Also, Suki got a little carried away playing with my favourite remixed cardigan when it was hanging on a drying rack last week and caused much damage to the hem so I may have to duplicate the project.
Incidentally, I was in David Jones over the weekend, and noticed that Alannah Hill (no link, for the reasons listed below) has a number of very pretty cardigans that are ripe for emulation – so I might drop in for some inspiration this weekend. It should be noted that I don’t feel the slightest bit guilty for ripping off Alannah Hill’s products. I love her style, but even if she catered for my size – which she doesn’t – the fact that she is on record saying that clothes look better on thin models, and that “No one wants larger girls to show off their clothes; it looks a bit silly.” * turned me off doing anything that would put money in her pocket.
You know who I love though? CatRabbit!
I bought this brooch a few weeks ago, and I’ve been wearing it pretty regularly, just not posting the outfits. I discovered Cat Rabbit originally in Sally’s shop “Georgie Love“. Once upon a time she had the cutest brooch with two owls linked together with a chain – it caught my eye but I never indulged, and it’s since sold out. Moral of the story: Don’t wait!
