Nice for window shopping.
Was really excited to be able to do Petite shopping while in America at Talbots in 2009 and find this little purple dress that’s like wearing a big t-shirt!

Nice for window shopping.
Cue design the most elegant work wear, lots of which you have seen on my blog, but I doubt they ever thought they’d see this combo of their mid-2000s crisp but feminine work shirt with this little dress / top from their casual range, The Letter Cue. I promise it’s not because I am being wardrobe-ly challenged but comfort requirements challenged. I need no belts, no buckles, no touching the muscles in my back & legs – this is perfect… Even though I usually just chuck this dress on with a pair of Birks it’s coming to work with me for a day!
It’s another GORGEOUS Autumn day so while the Northern Hemisphere soaks up a but more sun, we’re revelling in crisp mornings and cool breeze and digging a little but deeper in the wardrobe for things that haven’t been out since last year.
I am slowly going crazy ’cause I have pretty much been sick for the whole of March and after being in bed all day today was sure I was about to post another no outing day. Suddenly my phone chimed up to remind me I made a dentist appointment for tonight 3 months ago. The chance to see my long term family dentist is as rare as hens’ teeth so I had to roll out of bed and switch trackies for jeans and get my teeth to the dentist pumped full of cold and flu herbal tablets. The herbal ones are great and don’t make you feel sick or dizzy
These culottes are an a big fav since being on the most wanted list after Fashion Week. I went to the Fashion Week Dogstar show and fell in love with these pants not realising that a 6-foot model has a bit more leg on me! When I first tried them on I was really disappointed that my legs weren’t longer I went back another day and tried them on again and thought about how I could dress them up and down and how much I love them AND it was end of season super sales so I had to have them.
Since then have just loved owning them. Today they were perfect because there were lots of babies and lots of action so I needed to be able to sit on the floor, run up and down stairs, pick up babies and catch up with all my cousins, aunties and uncles.
After breakfast at the Peak one morning in HK, I stopped at Giordano and found this top. They only had it in medium but I thought that made it soft and flowy. I think it has led me to the discovery of a fashion phenomenon – if I wear tops that are a bit too long, I lose a couple if inches of trouser top and therefore my legs look even shorter than usual … I’m also not wearing particularly high optical illusion shoes.
Speaking of optical illusion shoes, I have the most amazing optical illusion boots that I wore once in London and as I stepped into a lift my Dad thought he had missed a new growth spurt They are affectionately called “The Avenger Boots” – roll on winter and long legs!
You’ll see these scrummy Esprit pants again on sunny winter days.
So I think I have confirmed something – only wear this top with super skinny jeans and mega-heels! Also just as my sister feels like she is wearing my clothes in a full skirt … Maybe I should hand this one to her.
These are also hand-me-down pants from my mum and I love them probably because they are black and comfy and still look black! Most of my black and comfy clothes don’t look black anymore because they get worn so much! Thanks Mum. Actually they would probably fit her again now that she goes to the gym or does Pilates every day … Maybe I should hide them!
