There's a new meme in the erm, wardrobe and it's all down to that Mother Venting who wants to know the stories behind our oldest items of clothing.
Well, Mother Venting tagged the lovely Mum Of One and Mistress Mummy who in turn tagged me so get ready to change your opinion of me once you see what's been hiding in my wardrobe!
I bought this cardigan on a whim from Bay Trading Company. It's a 3/4 length cardigan with 3/4 length sleeves and it's fabulously bright and bold, which I love, love, love! I have NEVER seen anyone else wearing it and while I suspect that speaks volumes about my fashion sense, I like to think it's because I'm brave enough to forge my own path in the world of fashion!
This is my party dress, bought from H&M and the photo really doesn't do it justice. It reminds me of the sort of dress Alice would have worn to the Mad Hatter's tea party in Alice in Wonderland. You can't really see but there's yellow netting under the skirt part of the dress, which really speaks to the "little child at a party" in me!
In case you're wondering, it's a coincidence that both my cardigan and dress have flamingoes on them. I don't have a thing for them...honest!
These are my favourite witchy boots and this photo is dedicated to Mistress Mummy who told me earlier this week, when I was complaining about not having worn heels since New Years Eve 2008, that something every woman needs to do is sit down, put their heels on and remain there. Advice duly taken!
As you can see, I don't really have any stories behind my clothing and although I have some pieces I really love, I wouldn't necesarily miss them if I had to give them up. It's not that I'm not interested in clothes. I am. I'm a big believer in wearing colour, rather than black and grey, and in finding your own style. But I've temporarily put that interest on hold until I've finished breastfeeding at which point I will be seriously indulging in some pretty knickers and underwired bras!
