I have spent a good half hour trying to decide what to wear today. Nothing fancy as the day will be spent cooking, preparing food for a party, ironing, cleaning windows and dancing with the vacuum & duster. All these activities will be interspersed with resting periods of crochet.
So I am looking for something suitable to don and flounce about in while I work. You know, work clothes. Fresh & clean, not worried about little spillages, yet smart enough if an unexpected Toyboy should land on my doorstep! No way do I want to spoil my image!!
I have so little to choose from these days and it is all my own fault:
This hanger sculpture is actual evidence of a recent brutal clear out of my wardrobes. All sorted, cleaned and gone to charity or for recycling. The only problem is that I forgot to keep an outfit or two for mucky housework!
I suppose if I am stuck, I could always wear my pyjamas turned inside out!!
I really need to do a wardrobe clear-out. I like your sculpture! 🙂
I bundles about 75% of those hangers up and gave them to a charity shop The were thrilled to get them.
a worn-out pillowcase made into a poncho, and a skirt out of knitted old plastic bag strips? (I saw something similar once at a street fashion show for very young designers!)
Now that would make a great fancy dress outfit, Lin!
Good for you on doing the clear out.
If you wear something “good,” soon it will be “mucky.”
Nancy, that would give me a great excuse to buy something new!
You in your pajamas turned inside out should be a sight to see!
A sight better left to the imagination, Ramana.
I am often seen in my pj’s – last weekend, when unexpected family came by – but they knew I was more in bed – so these ones that are red with white hearts all over, don’t look too bad…the top was more ordinary, a red/brown longsleeved sports top (now a designated indoor dud)…
many of clothing has got to a point where it’s nearly all “home based” and I really need to buy some new duds, but everytime I got look – I can’t decide…or they have some detail I don’t want or need…(wish my sewing skills has returned, still lost in the myths of time)…
you get buy one of those long aprons…that covered everything – the sort that go over your head…in fetching colours, so no one notices exactly what is underneath, too busy looking at your in your gorgeous pinny
I get up to put the kettle on first thing in the morning and often attend to some unfinished chore, moving from one thing to another and before I know it, it is lunchtime and I am still in my pj’s. Yet when I was in paid employment, I bounced out of bed and into the shower every morning before 6a.m. Then dressed fed and the war paint on I was ready to leave before eight O’ clock.
I do have two long PVC aprons that have given faithful service for years. Maybe I should make a house-coat like the ones my grandmother donned over her day clothes to do house work. Then it would not matter what was on underneath!
and under said “housecoat” you could be naked – just make sure it’s buttoned right down…or one of those long zips 🙂
