Wow, the response for the last post was amazing, I had no idea that the bitch that is denim buying was so universal. Thank you for all your comments, every time one's posted I get a little rush, I guess it's kind of like drugs... not that I would know what drugs were like...
Oh and I got some skinnies, they are dark and pretty and there will be pictures when my camera stops being an idiot.
So the reason for my small absence from B. D. was that I went camping. With my family. Let's just say it was a bucket of laughs. My 3 year old cousins convinced that she is a princess and therefore the most important person in the world, I put my bag with all my clothes too close to the edge of the tent so it got soggy and all had to wear were damp clothes, and my aunt wouldn't let my wear make-up because apparently that's breaking the 'camping rules'( "You're supposed to look ugly Alison, that's just how it is"). Yes, quite possibly the happiest weekend of my life. Which brings me to an interesting-ish question, how does one look fab in the wilderness, with no full length mirrors, no make-up and a severe lack of clothes because you're Hitler-esque father told you to pack light( apparently 3 bags isn't considered packing light anymore).
Well, I'm pretty sure one can't.
And there my friends is the proverbial fly in the ointment. Every morning putting my face on and getting dressed is as important a ritual as breakfast, so how do I suddenly let go? Is it impossible to embrace your inner ugly if you've spent most of your life shoving that person under two inches of foundation?
Wow, I'm in a very deep mood today. Yes, that for me is deep. On to even more materialistic things, I got a question in the last comments from Froydis, who said:
I have a fashion problem and I hope you can help! I live in Texas, where its summer like weather all year around, but my favorite fashion is that of fall with tights and jackets and such. Do you have any ideas how I could do a more climate friendly version of the latest fall looks? Thanks!
Well that is a dilemma isn't it. I live in Canadaland where it rains pretty much ten months of the year and then gets super hot for the other two, so I've never really encountered this problem, but I'll do my best, just for you.
Hot weather makes it pretty hard to wear tights, but not impossible. Just make sure that you're wearing light somewhat breathable tights a la Stella McCartney or Trovata instead of the huge knobbly ones that seem to radiate heat. Also, don't be tempted to go for the hideous leggings or *shudder* fishnets. If you're feeling a bit more daring, go for a coloured tight like dark blue or purple.
In place of a blazer, go for a dark lightweight cardy, they look very autumnish without bundling yourself up in a parka( AE Vintage Cardigan $49.50)
Over your tights and under your cardy throw on a snappy floaty dress, something with a pattern preferably.
Add some layered chains for extra awesomeness, and you're done!
Hope this helps a bit, Froydis. Thanks for giving me something to post about :)
