While freezing rainy weather is my very very favourite weather, the things I don't like about it include:
• Doing my laundry just before it starts to rain, so I have to hang everything to dry in my house.
• Driving without my glasses when it's getting dark at 5 pm.
• Bleaching my hair in a tiny singlet top in a cold lil bathroom.
I do like, however:
• Making these and this concurrently and dancing around to awesome playlists (who knew the Andrews Sisters and Ugly Duckling went together so well?)
• Eating in my car with the boy while it rains outside.
That pretty much sums up the last few days.
So today, after a fresh coat of bleach, I went to see the Soft Sculpture exhibition and wander around the National Portrait Gallery. I really loved finally seeing Hesse's "Contingent" in the flesh, and I found Melinda Harper's work. I love her to death.
I wore this:
• Black vintage riding jacket, opshopped for $4
• My grandmother's sunburst rhinestone brooch.
• 1950's pink rosette dress.
• Lace leggings, a present from my mother.
• Black woven jazz flats, 1980s, eBay.
I also took a photograph of this the other night, in case you ever wondered what I wear when I'm hanging around my house, baking/mending/trying to dance like Ian Curtis.
• Blue geometric scarf, tied in a do-rag.
• Plaid pyjama shirt.
• Blue 1970's athletic shorts, opshopped for $2.50.
• Thick woolen knee-high bedsocks.
Finally, I am selling this 1960's pink chiffon dress on eBay in a continuation of my emotionally stunted, painful attempts to downsize my wardrobe:
