This was my fabulous work outfit yesterday. The mirror at work is very accomodating to outfit documentation, and I feel that this could become a regular thing. My real reason for the photograph was to show my Peggy-dress turned into a skirt, but obviously this outfit is so much more than that.
Yesterday a lady asked me what colours she could wear red shoes with. As a seasoned everyday red shoe wearer I told her that red was easy – the tricky thing was blue. And as those (beautiful) blue shoes are my only work shoes at present, the trick every work day is to find tidy, un-toddlered clothes that work with blue shoes. With a little help from that lovely merino top from Love, Love Lorelei, this is my third such outfit. Though I think those brown tights are at the end of their life and my mustard tights might be better in warm weather.
But what I really came here to talk about is the skirt. I didn’t have enough fabric originally to make a dress with sleeves (or even a tunic) so ended up with a not-very-well fitted dress with fiddly straps, a la the 90s. Consequently, I never wore it. So after several months of umming and ahhing, possibly on this blog, I have cut off the top. I still haven’t given it a waistband, but nobody can see that! By pure coincidence, another work skirt involves the bottom half of a dress!
Tomorrow! Tomorrow I will do that!
(If I ever shake off this cold. Usually I avert horrible cold hangings on by taking the wonder drug andrographis, but today that cold is well and truly stuck on me. I hope to wake tomorrow to a normal state of health, but I thought that would happen this morning, or that I’d feel better by lunchtime at least…pah!)
