Yo, Boredom Here

Yo, Boredom Here

>> I've scrubbed the cooker, in the process of baking a tart and have also undertaken a beading DIY project.  I'm also looking outside my window every two seconds for a TNT van containing a spanking new iMac.  This is me playing out the role of a domestic banshee.  I only give into one-note, one-dimensional outfit posts when I'm hurried for time (i.e. during Fashion Week) but it seems I've had to give into this one whilst I'm extremely full of time yet unable to produce anything more substantial because…well… there's… the tart… the TNT van… and err… spice racks to organise… and all the rest of it.

So solitary outfit post it is.  I guess I may as well try and construct a point around it.  Remember how I talked about the plain old weather inspiring an outfit and how actually deep down in me, a pragmatic spirit is floating around, trying desperately to break free?  Well, this outfit is basically a big F*** You to this tiresome rain that threatens to drain my spirits because I am mired in a pathetic cycle of waiting for pastry to bake/TNT vans to come/torrents to download.  I have this Moschino Cheap and Chic jacket to thank for that… what the whole ensemble really wants to say to the skies is "You will NOT be able to hide this under an umbrella…"

    That is a great outfit full of bringing smiles to anyone else suffering through that rain.
    Yay for one-note productive and new computers!

    I loved the blazer when you first posted about it when you bought it from HK and especially paired with the Gingham. Coupled with the floral trews and those gorgeous brogues well, the outfit is insanely brilliant. I love it!

    It is crazy, BUT the gingham some how ties the florals together. Her bold leap has brightened my day!

    I absolutely dig your blazer, it looks so funny and yet very stylish, just like the rest of your style actually. But I really love this one.

    2009-12-30 at 10:55 PM

    Ok fine…FINE! You’ve convinced me, now I need to go back to the fabric store and buy that gingham spandex….;)
    Don’t let the rain get you down (although it certainly doesn’t look like it is)…it could be snow! It’s much harder to have fun with outfits when you’re limited to 3 pairs of boots and have to throw a giant winter coat, scarf and hat over everything. I hate winter.
