I was going for (what I knew would would be boozy) a night in at a friend's house and, post weekend gym sesh, I figured there was no point getting dolled up. So I went for my classic weekend wear - stuff that is comfy and doesn't match but isn't leisure wear and is good, each piece in its own right. Here's the bag lady evidence:
|Evidence (1). Before the night in. Dress: Matalan, Cardi and overnight bag: Primark, Shoes: Mel @ Schuh, hairband: boutique in San Francisco.|
Florals, stripes, butterflies and bows. Gotta love it.
|Evidence (2): "Dress": Dorothy Perkins (I never wear this because, as you can see, it's far too short for me. And I can't abide a tunic type top thing with jeans - it's so frumpalicious - no offence if that's your bag.), Leggings: Uniqlo (I never wear these because, as you can see, they do NOTHING for me. I can only plead that I was mercilessly sucked in by the leopard print.), shoes and bow headband as before.|
PERFECT unflattering bag lady outfit, non? Ridiculous, un-matching, ill fitting, comfortable and YET, somehow a million times better than sitting about in pjs (like I am now) or joggers. Go figure.
Am I a secret weekend bag lady? You decide.
Here's a close up of the gorgeous shoes, number 59 in my shoe wearing challenge, to make up for my bag lady assault on your eyes:
Aren't they adorable? The plastic is comfy, the colour's cute, the butterflies are pretty - winner! Plus, it's special breathable plastic so your feet don't go too stinky. Genius! They're £25 by Mel (the lil sis brand of Melissa who do the jelly type shoes for Vivienne Westwood) from Schuh.
And here's a mushroom that looks like a bum. Just cause.
