I have dressed like the proverbial dog's dinner this week. No let me correct that - the dog's dinner has looked better. The daily offerings have been so bad that I have spared you the madness and badness.
But today, I woke up in a better frame of mind, hair freshly done and applied a little bit of makeup (just a smidgeon) to perk up the weary face (George stop getting up in the middle of the night, you little tinker - your mum's face will thank you for it). I even put on a little lip gloss to really push the boat out. Aaah - I feel better. Makeup does actually make you feel better - I'm just too lazy to practice what I preach most days and besides the French do that no make up look really well so I'm in good company really (keep selling it to thyself by way of an excuse).
I was stuck in the house yesterday. I wanted to get out but I couldn't as I was helping a friend with looking after her little one. Two whole weeks and not a whiff of a 3D shop can really get a girl down you know. But there's always that little chink of light to be found in online shopping :o) I can't recommend it enough.
I've been going through the wardrobe and I've actually done a bit of culling. Pat on back for me. I am offloading two bags of clothes to one sister and another bag of clothes to the god daughter. They don't know it yet. One woman's rubbish is another's treasure - right? But I am pleased - a few less clothes to think about not thinking about (think about it)!
So whilst going through the wardrobe and looking through my stripes, I came to the conclusion that I was still missing a red breton. I was missing one last year too when I did a post on stripes so I think that's an argument for my case for a red breton to update my wardrobe. It doesn't have to be a strict red but anywhere between pantone hellboy and pantone ironman is good :o)
I'm thinking red/raspberry will be quite fresh. A nice change from the classic blues and a little bit more funky than a black. I'm taking inspiration from the following :
Worn a little like this - I already have the hand in jeans pocket look perfected. I need to get a new pose - it's getting all a bit Blue Steel (Zoolander anyone? I love that film! Thought provoking it is not, entertaining it is).

So yeah - that's hopefully the red breton hole filled. I'll keep you posted whether it's a yay or nay when it arrives - I already know the sleeves are way long but hey - what's new?
