Day 77: Wednesday 15 July

July 15, 2009

The day has finally arrived for The Good, The Bad, The Muddy. And of course I still have a few things to do. I have to make myself pretty for the big night of nights. I have to plan my night time outfit. And I have to make some dog poo out of clay. So all in all a busy schedule ahead of me.

In other exciting denim news I got back from my jaunt up the country to find a large parcel full of denim on my doorstep. Yes! Another unsolicited donation from a complete stranger! It was a mixed bag of horrifying acid wash, elastic waisted “jeans” (if you could call them that), a denim shirt dress and most spectacular of all…. a gorgeous denim bomber jacket! Which I HAD to wear straight away. Thanks Sophie. You are a Southern Highlands fashion legend.

Top: How incredible is this denim bomber jacket with red & blue elastic trim? Even the label is cool: South Seas Bubble Co Ltd! It’s a snug fit, but I don’t care

Bottom: Ben Sherman jeans, oft worn here

Accessory: Dark denim cap with re utpopia badge to match red trim on ace bomber jacket

I don’t think you have had a good look at that jacket, so here it is in technicolor…

Oh and it’s the final State of Origin fo 2009 tonight. But who cares? Come to my opening instead of watching the tele.

Evening attire:

Here’s what I’m in tonight. Don’t ask what’s on the plate, just come and see. And go the Blues, I s’pose…

Are you being served?

Day 57: Thursday 25 June

June 25, 2009

Well last night sure was something.
Freebies are a mixed blessing that’s for sure.

Free tickets to see State of Origin 2=hurrah!

Free alcohol in the Legends bar= oh no, I feel off right now, pass the Berocca

And NSW lost as well. Whatever. The Blues are blue again.

My eyes are very puffy, not from crying, from drinking that free beer. I ate some funny food too. Meat on a stick, indefinable deep fried balls of something, bread with crumbs on top and mini burgers.

Here’s my ‘connection’ chowing down on a mini burger. Mini burgers! Tiny eensy little baby burgers that you can easily hold in one hand while you hold your drink in the other hand! How awesome!

I suppose I should post a picture of me and today’s denim do looking, feeling, being shabby…

Now I REALLY am off to the shop to get Berocca. Looking forward to that peculiar coloured urine afterwards too…


Day 56: Wednesdy 24 June = SofO2!!!!

June 24, 2009

The sun yesterday was just a blip and it’s grey again. And I’ve got the Blues, the State of Origin 2 NSW Blues!

There’s a chance I’ll be going to watch the game from a corporate box tonight. However my ‘connection’ has been spewing for the past few days so I might be watching the big game from in front of the small tv.

If I go I’ll have to wear a special BLUE outfit. Until then, here’s what I’m wearing. T’ain’t pretty…

I guess that's why they call them THE BLUES

Stay tuned for an afternoon/early evening update where I’ll reveal if I am going to watch State of Origin footy REALLY or just on tv, at home, in my partner’s blue dressing gown… exciting times ahead

Afternoon  State of Origin2 update!!

I’m going to the game!!

It seems that somehow the Queensland State of Origin team now has whatever was ill infecting my ‘connection’, as the connection has come good while several of the Maroons are suffering the both ends up and out problem. Not sure if there is a connection between my connection and the Queensland team getting sick…

That’s by the by, cos I’m going to the game!! I’ve been told we are watching the game from a ‘corporate box’. Not sure what that means, so I’ve worn a tie just in case it means business.

Go team!

Blue through n through... down to my ring

Day 36: Thursday 4 June

June 4, 2009

I apologise for the lateness of today’s blog. I had stuff to do, like sleeping in, feeling blurry and shopping before I could get to the computer this morning. Anyway…

Blue so blue since the Blues lost. So blue that I have gone for a dark blue “Canadian Tuxedo” combo, as my brother calls it, to reflect my dark blue inner mood. But I hold out hope that Origin 2 in three weeks time will swing our way and I can feel happy blue not sad blue.

Rueful look cos the Blues lost and I ate all the Toobs before I could blog about the only Denim food in existence

Top: The beginnings  of a classic denim pairing… Levi’s jacket

Bottom: Completing the look much adored by Canadians, Levi’s jeans

Accessory: denim bag bought from Newtown’s Old Wares shop. The girl who works there actually makes them with her own hands!

As you can see I am adorned in double denim label & colour combo. This is the look particulalry hated  by the younger generation, but f-it, I am in a distressed state, I’ll wear what I want.

Today is a two times denim day…. First I wore the Levi’s dynamic duo above, then I wore and, will continue wearing for the next few hours the potting  attire below, then I will return once again to Levi’s for work this evening.

Accessory: beach hat with a Gilligan style brim

Last night’s footy watching activity wasn’t just about screaming at young fit men running into each other. It was also about raising money Sydney’s community radio station fbi. Here’s the stamp to prove it.

Fist of fury
