Meanwhile, in all the excitement I realised that I’ve almost missed the deadline on this weeks Aussie Curves challenge, Polkadots!

I’ve got a surplus of polkadots in my wardrobe, so it wasn’t hard to rustle up a dotty outfit for today.

I wore my vintage thrifted minnie-mouse dress that I bought from Etsy shop Miss Modular Vintage. I bought this dress way back in 2009, and it’s still getting a good work out. It’s pretty nasty staticky fabric, but that’s easily solved with a good squirt of Statique. After a brief flirtation of wearing it with yellow accessories I’ve got back to my usual red. The better to match my frou frou:

Shoes: Melissa

Red Melissa shoes, still as comfortable as ever but starting to look a smidge scuffed at the toe. Apparently I can give give them a big of a scrub with warm soapy water and a cloth, so I might give that a try.

Bracelet: melt’m Design Studio

I got to see my little sister this week, when she surprised me with an off-chemo-week visit from Canberra. I’m pleased to see that like Fiona and I she’s still wearing her bridesmaid bracelet. They were chosen to signify a Chinese legend that links people to each other with an invisible red thread. I like to imagine that we’re lending Mae our strength on the tough days through our invisible red threads, and the bracelet reminds me of that.

Apple Pin: Bowel Cancer Australia

And I’m wearing my apple pin, of course.
