Never quite awake
Remember when I said I prefered the other way I wore this skirt? Well, this is that other way :)
This skirt is really a little bit longer and much too lovely for me to really mess about with but thank imitation inspiration: I've been seeing a few of you guys sporting paper bag waisted skirts recently so when I stood in front of the mirror that morning I had myself a lightbulb moment. I pulled the skirt up like some old men do with their trousers, turned the hem inwards and belted it. Aaaah. Much better than my previous attempt. :)
A few weeks ago I went to Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair (this is what I wore). There were no perfect dresses my size waiting to be found by me but lots of beautiful brooches and bracelets for the taking and they weren't joking when they wrote "affordable" either. I'll be sure to wrestle my way from stall to stall again next time they're in town. :)
I got these buttons and belt buckle with the dress pattern I posted about in January in mind. I think I might go for fabrics in similar colours to what I am wearing in these shots. Pastel blue with pale green collar detail. Or the other way round..
One morning earlier this week I woke up, unwillingly wriggled out of bed, trudged into the bathroom bleary eyed and started to clean up and put some slap on and then - then I woke up. Imagine how grumpy I was that I'd have to do it all again. Well, nothing as grumpy as when I realized that one was a dream too. Can you say disoriented? Well, I sure didn't clean behind the ears third time around.
There were many references to Insheeption made by the other half and me that morning ;)
