Good bye to my Fashion Mashie wardrobe $5 a piece. I’m at Coorparoo Bowls Club’s Car Boot Sale today – it is time to sell the things that didn’t go to the RSPCA. We dropped 4 bags off at their thrift in February and today is part 2 of getting ready to buy more clothes. I obviously broke the habit but I am starting a new job in a week and I would like to buy some new clothes for my fresh start.
Just need to make some money so I can afford to shop again!

Jeans may seem an unusual choice for a Brissie summer Saturday but I did my Responsible Service of Alcohol training this morning in a highly air-conditioned room. This makes me government approved to work in a bar … Like all good casual teachers covering themselves for the very quiet summer season!
The highlight was rushing over to Mum’s when I was done to lick the beaters and stir the Christmas pudding and make wishes for the year ahead.
Could I wish for anything more than to live with a beautiful man who does this while I’m out doing a course?
Had dinner at Verve
to show off my gorgeous boyf’s fab photo exhibition.
Today is Sweet As Sunday at Coorparoo Bowls Club – celebrating all things New Zealand. I thought I would be at home in the morning getting some work done, head over to the club for lunch and laughs and then back home to finish my work but when the wind picked up and rained threatened we had a call asking if upstairs at the club was free. So we headed down hours earlier than expected with 1 minute to get dressed … With no time to design a whole new outfit, the safest thing was to put 2 shirts I know I have worn but never together on at the same time.
On arrival, I find my young Kiwi friend who has spent ages putting his outfit together – his All Blacks T, brown shorts which are the colour of the kiwi bird, red socks that say “Team New Zealand” and blue shoes the colour of a big, blue Kiwi sky. You can choose your clothes to say so much, can’t you?
I am usually a no tv or documentary only kind of a girl – not in a snobby way, just eternally curious. With an hour to spare last night I stumbled across a great such doco all about creatures that survived the event that killed off dinosaurs. You know, the evolution of the green sea turtle over the last 220 million years … Give or take.
In the ads, in my folly, I flicked and abruptly halted when the screen was filled with chiffon and crystals drowning a young girl attending her first holy communion in a dress twice her body weight.
This is how it came to pass that I saw my first ever episode of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.
I was fascinated. I thought the show was just going to be about big, frilly wedding gowns but it was a real insight into traveller culture. But while looking for a link to share I was saddened to come across this article featuring the couple and the dress from last night’s episode:
On a cheerier note, the colours and dancing were fabulous, my favourite part was how all the girls pose for their photos – more posing I say!
I was inspired and my friend at work today suggested I give one of the poses a shot – talk about how to make a boring outfit feel a little more fab. Not that any of the outfits in the show are boring … Just mine as I arose at 4am for airport duty then went straight to work at 5.30am.
Will that make up for arriving by the skin of my teeth yesterday?
More importantly, can a great pose save a boring outfit?
Is this a power stronger than the power of fashion? Only time will tell – may the experiments begin:
So pleased I got to get on a skate board today after studying about Rob Thomas who holds the world record for the longest journey by skate board
Broke a couple of records myself today:
1) stayed on a skate board and didn’t fall off
2) really wanted to re-wear an outfit for pretty much the first time since I started this challenge but obviously didn’t so we stand at 275 days of completely different outfits on one wardrobe PHEW! Not exactly world record stuff but a good personal goal still being achieved.
Thanks for all the support by the way
