Here is my outfit this week
Red Dress - a trade me find
cardi - thrifted
tights- cant remember but probably farmers
shoes- #1 shoe warehouse
I bought this dress to use as a pattern, which I did and made this dress from but then I decided I actually quite liked this one after all. I did have to alter it slightly, it was a really weird length so shortened it and tightened the elastc at the waist to stop it being quite so sacky. I love that it has a pocket too. Not sure about the black tights though?
The shoes, though love the style are almost unbearably uncomfortable. In typical #1 style the soles are so thin I can feel every stone, lump of dirt under my feat
This whole wardrobe wednesday thing has been so great (thanks Clare). I have been/still am struggling a lot with what suits me, what I like, style, length, size etc. I used to have such a strong sense of what I liked and didn't care if no one else liked it, but now I freak out and obssess over it. I no longer wear accessories, I stopped when I realised necklaces were the perfect thing for a yound child to pull and got sick of being choked, brooches got ripped off, rings caught in everything but now my kids are older I'm just not sure what to wear. I guess what I am saying is that I have totally lost confidence in my own "style" judgement. I realised this today when I had to ask a friend which pattern and which fabrics I should use to make myself some new dresses for summer. I didn't trust myself to choose. Then thinking about it I realise I ask this friend for advice constantly, in fact his approval is one of the reasons I now wear this red dress. I need to break this habit, trust in my own judgement and I think that this wee exercise every week is helping with that.
