I was told it was time to reveal some of my wardrobe…so here it is at about a third of the way through the year!
This dress is my first ever French Connection UK purchase found in super sales and one of my first ever slinky outfits.

This skirt is another gem from a shop on St John’s Wood High Street in London. I bought lots of fab little numbers on super sale there in about 1999 and they were all pretty slinky at a time that I wasn’t confident enough to wear slinky. Then, I guess 10 years later, I just kind of grew up and got more confident and realised I wasn’t going to have a 12-year-old boy dancer body forever! My big sister told me it is good to have curves so it must be true And luckily I very rarely throw clothes out so now as I approach 40 I can wear them all! Though I must say having reached day 117 of intense wardrobe scrutiny, I now know what needs to stay, what needs to go and what I need to replace! Looks like next year is going to be just as busy!
That’s how someone just described my top!
My sister lives in Singapore and while I was living in HK I would zip over for the weekend sometimes, especially if my mum was visiting. We would often have a wander down Orchard Rd and one day we walked into a giant Mango store having a super sale! My favourite kind of store. I think I love sales so much because 1) I obviously don’t really need more clothes 2) I love experimenting with clothes so it’s better if they don’t cost too much!
Well I bought this jacket which got a couple of wears in HK and since it arrived back here in 2009 has been very safely stowed in my closet. I put it on today and remembered that I love it. I think it might be better with skinny pants rather than such a full skirt…what do you think? Do you have tops that only go with skinny bottoms? I’ll experiment a bit now I have rediscovered this jacket.
For those of you new to my blog, this skirt is very special – my mum made it for my cousin for a school dance in 1988 and we found it in my aunt’s garage 4 years ago and I wear it all the time. For people who enjoy a 5 senses approach to life, it swishes when I walk but you can’t hear that on my blog.
I have often bought great work clothes at super sale time at Cue. I bought this while working in Brisbane between 2000 & 2004 and it doesn’t get lots of outings but I do live it. I always thought it would be a good dress to wear to a funeral but I never really wear black and/or serious to funerals. I want people to wear party dresses to mine please.
