Day 166: Monday 12 October 2009

October 12, 2009

I’m up early. So early I have seen the sun rise. That’s too early. Way too early. But when you are a worker that’s what you have to do, obey the shift roster like a drone. At least I don’t have a bundy clock, although my first job after school, in a factory, involved the use of a bundy clock, but only for the factory. The people in the office didn’t use it.

Enough reminiscing about the olden days. Yesterday I forgot to mention the fashion care package I received from  the YOD Southern Highlands fashion adviser. That’ right, she sent me some denim! And what an item! It’s a Jag maxi skirt, in need of a good wash. Being a little stumpy I’m also worried the maxi length might be too maxi.

Me, denim, the backyard, the sun rise

Top: Lee distressed edged denim shirt, barely does up

Bottom: The Beautiful & the Damned pale blue denim flares, too big

Accessory 1: Denim bag with red piping

Accessory 2: Denim gym boots. I must say I am seriously considering buying those Levis gym boots made from old jeans. These cheapies are fine, but the Levis are on a different level of chicness


Day 139: Tuesday 15 September

September 15, 2009

It was kind of balmy when I left home early yesterday morning, so I had on a short sleeve shirt. By mid morning it was freezing and I had to, yes HAD to go into Surry Hills’ most excellent St Vinnies, and I had to, yes HAD to, buy a denim jacket to keep me cosy.

Four weeks ago I tried on the same jacket and decided it was too tight and sausagey. However a comment on Sunday’s blog about the super tight denim shrug I was wearing on Saturday night  has turned my mind around.

Personally I love fat chicks in tight clothes. So today I am embracing the fat chick in me and outside of me (where most of the fat resides) and going for the super snug, fat arm, big boob, waist-that-goes-out-instead-of-in look that was disparaged in a comment a couple of days ago…

Top: Fresh from the racks of St Vincent de Pauls, Blockout stretch denim snugly jacket. Check the waist, boob and arm bulges. Nice!

Bottom: Dragstar denim high waisted flares. Unseen is undone top button. Big gut, can’t do up

Accessory 1: Same denim bag as yesterday. It matches cos the jacket has red stitching

Accessory 2: Denim gym boots, cunningly concealed by super flares
