This morning, the larder was bare. A trip to the supermarket it was then. No casually thrown in items of clothing amongst the brocolli and the orange juice today although I may have sneaked in a copy of Vogue. Got to keep with the trends and all that, you know.
And guess what? I was recognised whilst grocery shopping! Someone actually recognised me from my blog. Again. Let me tell you now, it is really weird. You go round throwing things in your trolley nilly willy and then someone says "Hi, I recognise you ...." and then you think "Eeek" and then you think "Bog (substitute with stronger word for full impact), I have no make up on, I haven't brushed my hair and I hope I haven't got anything weird in my trolley". But hi Cheryl! Lovely to meet you! Excuse me while I curl up and die in a ball of excruciating embarrassment.
Anyway what was I wearing when I was spotted? Nothing very exciting as I was dressed for the dreary weather and not for being spotted.
M&S altered coat, Uniqlo down jacket, Uniqlo Heattech vest, Zara belt, H&M Jeans
The Uniqlo down jacket has been worn a few times now. It's quite easy to pull on over a jumper or a light top but I'm going to be honest, it's warmish but not that warm. I'm not sure if I'm expecting too much but the jurys out on this one for now. If I remember I'll let you know my views on it come January when I've put it through it's paces.
The grey altered coat has come back from the dry cleaners and will be worn a lot again this year - I can feel it in my bones. I think this is just one of those workhorse throw it on coats. It's grey, it fits big jumpers underneath, it has great pockets for jamming your hands in - what's not to love?
And the Burberry cashmere scarf? I love this scarf regardless of whether it's in fashion or not but I'm so glad I "acquired" this especially after flicking through the afore mentioned Vogue and spotting a Burberry cashmere scarf featured in one of it's trending sections. There's nothing like a bit of Vogue affirmation to make you feel good about your sartorial choices.
Anyway, what have I learned from this little experience today? That I should always be prepared (like the Scouts) and wear a teeny tiny bit of makeup (unlike the Scouts) when out in public places. And I have started by buying this ....
Baby steps, baby steps. This blogging mullarkey is setting me off on make up roads unknown.
Last Note :
- Have you ever wondered what the Scout saying "Dyb, dyb, dyb. Dob, dob, dob" means? It means, Do your best, do your best, do your best. Do our best, do our best, do our best.
- You have been enlightened. As was I when I googled it.
