Comfort blanket.

WOW grumpy today, nerves always put me in a bad mood, some kind of coping strategy. Anyway at least I can waft around looking like an Edwardian ghost in her nightie who has travelled to Asia and now owns a kimono?! That's a look right?! There is always comfort in wallowing clothes that make you smile, giggle or remind you of happier times and that is another reason I adore them.

Dress dangerously, life's too short to look a bore.

Monday morning, off to work like the rest of the world, wearing a tried and tested home made two piece with vintage kimono and forties style hair. YAWN. Lol I'm running a pop up shop at Bimble Bamdada this coming weekend, and I've realised that I have no idea of what to wear?! The thing is when you get to a festival everyone ups there game, they turn to novelty, fancy dress, drink induced combinations that fulfil crazy stylistic dreams! I spend everyday dressing like this, minus the booze of course. Why do people have to be far away from there friends, family, jobs and real life to feel free to express themselves visually? Understandably there is some social etiquette that plays into it but if the people around you are going to laugh or look down on your choices, then maybe they are not the best people to have in your life! Expressing yourself in this way is a way of enjoying something you have to endure everyday,of adding humour to a potential chore, making an artistic decision every day of your life?! How exciting does that sound? You can even re invent yourself everyday if you please. dress dangerously, life is too short to look a bore!

Practical dress?!

I've realised I'm starting to dress to be practical! Shock horror, what a realisation haha! I'm joking, ofcourse practicality lays a part in everyone's daily routine of self expression-the art of getting dressed.  However with the current stunning summer weather we are enjoying, I have realised how all my clothes are pretty much based around keeping warm, that and being so in love with an item that I want to marry it! I have never been a fan of faff, even though I love the details of a piece, I'm not one for jewellery that gets in the way and sleeves that dangle in your dinner. So is this practical dressing for the Heat dumming down my look? Or is it just pushing me into something new and fresh due the constraints? What do you reckon?
