Well. I have searched all of the Sunshine Coast’s op shops high and low and have come away with 2 new denim jackets (which CANNOT be worn here now coz you’d melt into a pool of denim like the wicked witch of the west), a Dolly Parton gate fold album with 3 incredible boobie corsetty pictures of her on it, and 2 books.
Oh, and the denim hot pants I am wearing today. That’s hot as in I’m sweating like crazy in them, not hot as in check out my arse cheeks.
Tomorrow I start heading south to The Wok.
Here’s my adventure in denim today…
Me and the tree
Top: Supre sweat filled vest. I know I’m soaking in it
Bottom: ‘Off Limits’ denim fisherman pants with rather labia like folds in the front
Accessory 1: Denim visor
Accessory 2: Denim birkenstocks slowly getting more and more sodden
As part of my op shop tour of Nambour today I came across quite a Christmas display, especially if you like Santa drunk and lying on a bench with a sexy lady elf off-sider…
Ho ho ho and a bottle of rum ... Santa has a lie down
Meanwhile Santa’s perky Lady Elf takes command of Christmas…
Sexy Lady Elf with bonus cape looks on disapprovingly
I was trying to figure out exactly WHAT was going on with Santa, so I moved in for a closer look, which wasn’t very enlightening…
Santa really looks like he's sleeping one off. This is enhanced by the life-like booze blooms all over his face

Having completed a haul through Noosa’s charity shops I must say I am underwhelmed. Very.
I only managed to buy a single denim item, culottes, after sitting in a change room trying on a pile of half-priced jeans.
Sometimes a Size 10 is waaaay too small. In fact sometimes a Size 12 is just too snug for comfort.
A pile of too tight denim. Sometimes I'm fatter than I think
The girl with the digital camera
Top: Ivy Australia chambre vest, so light so airy
Bottom: Cotton On (or mutton on?) denim shorts
Accessory: See denim bag in the first pic, you can just glimpse the strap in the mirror

Back to work today after a week around the house. I’m relieved as it is gunna get super hot today. No air con at home, but always a sublime bordering on freezing 22 degrees at the coal face.
So I’ve dressed light in a nice new (thanks Lifeline) chambre neo 80s style zippered vest. Ahhh denim. There’s always something new out there waiting for me to buy it.
In another denim first a kindly interstate YoD watcher sent me some lovely denim court shoes, so beautiful they are only on loan.
So special are these shoes I will be building an outfit around them, breaking one of my self imposed rules of no embroidery, cos these litle numbers have a sweet embroided flower motif. But first I have to buy that certain outfit that will bring these shoes to life.
Back to the charity shops for me, hurrah!
Backyard deadly denim stare. Be afraid
Top: Brand new on this blog never seen before Ivy chambre vest. At last cham-fucking-bre! I can stand wearing!!
Bottom: Denim Co. short legged, long crotched, weirdly waisted jeans
Accessory: Denim shoulder bag, no brand but completely awesome

I have denim plans today. More so then usual. Proactive creative denim plans.
I’m going over to Mum’s to make a denim jacket, maybe even a suit.
Mum can sew. I can’t. Mum understands a sewing pattern. I can’t. Mum’s got patience. I don’t. Mum’s got loads of patterns. I have three.
Grey days are good days for sewing... I imagine
Top: I didn’t think I’d get another chance to wear this lovely donated South Seas Bubble C0. denim bomber jacket
Bottom: They are new (to me), they are black, they are Gap jeans. Too long of course
Accessory: Denim no name shoulder bag/ carry-all

I have had a request for ‘collar popping’. So today I did it. I popped my collar and the look is so sensational I am certain I’ll be doing it again sometime soon.
Collar poppin' pout
Top: Cheap ‘n cheerful Supre denim vest. Just don’t ask me to do it up because I can’t
Bottom: Tight ‘n taut Sportgirl denim things with zips up the calf, I don’t know why
Accesory: After yesterday’s accessory overload I’ve reined it in to a single item, a shoulder bag
Today the Year of Denim has been entirely dressed by St Vincent de Paul. Thank God there’s still a little charity left in the world.

I’ve eaten breakfast. For the first time in days. Hurrah!
Still got some bile issues, and let’s wait and see how the food settles.
Off to work now…

Once again the blog is a little late in getting off the ground due to illness.
Although I’m still very husky I do feel a little perkier today. I can imagine leaving the house and doing stuff, and who knows, I might actually LEAVE the house and Do stuff. Maybe even a visit to a charity organisation as it’s been a pretty lean couple of weeks on the new denim front.
With the YoD half way mark approaching I need to reinvigorate my wardrobe, maybe get into some handicrafts and sewing, do a bit of vernacular denim fashion rather than relying on what the shops have.
I gaze into the future, or is it the past?
Top: MSK denim vest
Bottom: Just Jeans flared jeans, too long of course
Accessory: Dark denim cap to match the vest
