Hey, remember when I said I had a whole lot of outfits stockpiled to post? Well, I still haven’t posted them all yet and now Autumn appears to have arrived a month early, so i thought I’d better get a move on. I don’t know what it is about this time of year, (my biorhythms probably), but, come September, my life almost always undergoes some kind of drastic change – and this year will be no exception.
For reasons that aren’t mine to disclose, Lynne’s going to be selling the shop and moving to pastures new, so as well as my erstwhile regular teaching contract being a shadow of its former self, my days at the shop will be numbered, hence the aforementioned work related hysteria. But…I’ve made some phone calls and sent out some emails and there are glimmers of hope in the gloom. Plus there are many more phone calls and emails scheduled for after the Bank Holiday, and a workshop proposal to write, so watch this space and keep the positive thoughts a-comin’ if you’ve a mind to.
In the mean time, here’s a tee shirt dress with a Pucciesque print that I hadn’t worn in an age. Irritatingly the moths have had a pop at it in a couple of places, despite my wardrobe reeking of lavender and enough noxious chemicals to fell an Atlas moth a hundred paces. But you can’t see ‘em here so I’m not demoting it to a sleep-tee just yet.
I forgot to mention that I scored the frock on eBay, brand new with tags, for twelve quid some years after if had been and gone in the store. Looking at it now I can’t believe it was too warm to wear matching coral tights and a cardi.
