Day 105: Wednesday 12 August

Yesterday’s true blue through and through Dragstar combo was quite well received.

However I got the feeling from those around me that people thought I was wearing fancy dress.

Let me say emphatically NO!!! I was not playing dress ups, but playing for very high fashion stakes. Sometimes you have to take risks, and be ready to hear the critics. Armour yourself against the barbs, the arrows, the tongue lashings. So today I am flying under the radar, in a ‘costume’ that is all but invisible. I can guarantee I will not be noticed on the streets of Sydney in this take on double denim.

I puzzle over my handy work

I puzzle over my ceramic handy work

Top: One of my favs, Joes Jeans jacket, so fitted it nearly hurts

Bottom: Industrie jeans, so fitted there’s enough muffin for everyone

Accessory 1: Denim hat gifted at the beginning of YoD (Year of Denim)

Accessory 2: Denim  shoulder bag, no label, all style

    not I just meant suburban.
    Dulwich Hill is definately suburban but slightly inner-west, which is more suburban than those Surrey Hills hipsters. Hurlstone Park is really one more big step into the suburbs. It’s all soccer mums and school runs over the other side of Wardell Rd.

    I’m normally anti-hat but I like it. Its dramatic yet denimy.
    When I look at this fo-toe I see a Model.
