We popped out this morning for a wee spot of hardware shopping, a common pastime here in NZ on a Sunday. Frocking up for the hardware store is just as important as frocking up for the groceries, I feel.
So, anyway, on the way to the hardware store, we had to stop briefly at the local mall so I could get a prescription filled. We entered through Farmers, a department store catering to the masses, and upon entering encountered an older-well, probably our age, really-in matching capri pants, who looked aghast at G and I-the sheer nerve of expressing distaste at us, who have more style in our arses than they could ever have in this life or the next!!! The question came up: Where is the unwritten rule that women over 40 have to cut their hair short and start wearing capris and generally looking like men? And, why o why do older couples start dressing like twins?!
Frock-opshopped and altered
Handbag-also vintage,from a market somewhere, I think
Now-I made the bow!!!
G thinks I need to make it more stiff. I think it is a little wide. But as it is my first one, I'm not too worried. I just wanted to see if I would like it. And I do, even with the slight charwomanliness it gives me.
I wore it to band practice last night.....
But a little 20's-ish, which is nice. Esp with the coat.
Coat-vintage, gift from Justine
Long vesty thing-made by me, using a 70's pattern as a base
Bow-made by moi!!
So,should I pursue the bow thing?
G got quite excited about the whole hair decoration thing, and suggested dollhouse furniture and birds, among other things as potential decorations. He was, admittedly, quite drunk at the time. But-I think I am quite keen to see just how far I can take this, and just how ridiculous I can get!!!
