Fun Flats the other day, starting off in her own Stuart Weitzman cat prints. . . I commented there that she'd inspired me to build my Outfit of the Day around my own leopard flats, a pair of Anne Kleins that are 4 or 5 years old, but still put a bounce in my step.
I kept it simple: a favourite pair of raw denim jeans (Denham, bought in London 3 years ago). They're too large for me after my weight loss, but I thought I'd try them out as boyfriend jeans, although their sturdy construction and very well-dyed fabric is taking time to fade. They definitely need a belt, into which I tucked a brown cashmere v-neck pullover (Bompard); to that, I just added a few bracelets, my double-tour black-strapped watch, and my Wendy B fleur-de-lis necklace. . .
Looking in the mirror, I couldn't help but notice that from my self-portrait angle, it was pretty obvious that rolled-up jeans can make me look stubby. So I stubbornly declared that "Short and stubby is the new long and lean". . . and then tried a few other poses, just for fun. Slow shutter speed thanks to dark indoors, no flash 'cause of the mirror . . . and there you have an artistic (ha!) blur.
Put the whole thing together, just for fun, in a PicMonkey collage, and then I remembered that Citizen Rosebud was hosting a Shoe Shine event, and I thought "Why not join the crowd?"
Threw on a peacoat and a plaid scarf ('cause all the cool kids are mixing their plaids and their leopard prints, doncha know?). . . and headed to work. Just another Over 60 blogger. . .
