I thought Mondays, would be a good day for a Lifestyle Fifty play-along.
It’s going to be called “What are you wearing today?“, and the plan is that we post a photo of ourselves in everyday garb to get some ‘fun’ feedback on what other people think – does it suit us, what could be added or left off, or are we completely deluded!
Comments will be moderated, and I’ll only be publishing useful constructive feedback, not destructive criticism.
This isn’t meant to be a style competition, nor do you have to rush out and buy new clothes, just take a photo of yourself in what you’re wearing today (a mobile phone selfie or a camera self timed photo is fine).
I don’t know about you, but I have quite a lot of clothes in my wardrobe which rarely get worn. They are either ‘too good’ or ‘not good enough’ for this or that occasion, so they sit there gathering dust, and probably losing shape.
Then times change, my shape changes, and I don’t know if they really suit me or not after all.
Today I went to my monthly writer’s meeting with South Side Quills and out of my wardrobe I pulled this skirt which I bought in South Africa as an ‘office’ skirt in 2007, but I never got a job in an office after all, and so I’ve hardly worn it … ironically, just in case I ever do get an office job! The sandals are from Pavers in England (and not terribly comfortable), the grey stretch top is from Supre in Australia, the wrap cardigan is from Monsoon in England, the belt is from years ago in South Africa, and the beads my daughter brought me back from Bali.
What do you think? Thumbs up or thumbs down? Shall I wear this outfit again, or should I ditch it?
To play along – post a photo of yourself to Lifestyle Fifty’s Facebook Page (click this link), say a little about the photo if you’d like to, like are the clothes old or new, and where did you buy them. I’ll copy and paste the photograph and your explanation into the next available “What are you wearing today” post on Lifestyle Fifty, and ask for readers to comment.
I can’t wait to see what all you funky, feisty women are wearing.
In the meantime, have your say. Thumbs up or thumbs down to what I’m wearing today? (I’m bracing myself!!)
