Coco Chanel said “Everyday is a fashion show and the World is your runway”. Well sometimes I can’t function well enough to simply put one foot in front of the other, let alone dress well enough for a runway. BUT one lesson I’ve learnt along the way is that a boring outfit can be brought to life with some great accessories.
The other day, my alarm beeps, I roll over, hit snooze, hit snooze, hit snooze, hit snooze… You get where I’m going. All of a sudden I have 15 minutes to get ready and be in my car fighting the shitty Sydney peak hour traffic. With no time to think, I throw on my black leather leggings and a white button up shirt and look at my shabby self in the mirror. I mean, as you can see I don’t even have time to iron the shirt, if I’m being honest I actually didn’t even notice how badly crushed the shirt was until I looked at the photos. Whoops #blogging101.
I desperately need a quick fix to take this outfit from the “I have no clean clothes” look to “I clearly planned this” look. Just like delicious cream cheese icing hides a terrible, dry, vanilla cake. With 5 minutes and counting I grabbed the most patterned/busy shoes I could find (a lucky last minute purchase at the Senso warehouse sale), the biggest earrings I have and a crazy pair of gold, glitter, mirrored sunglasses. With one last look at myself, I run out the door.
To be fair I was still a couple of minutes late to work and when I sat down I noticed my shirt buttons were misaligned… Doh. Let’s just hope everyone was too busy looking at my earrings or my dirty hair to notice.
We had our first official Doggy Friday this week and I borrowed a co-workers Labradoodle to grab some happy snaps. Bailey the Labradoodle was too cool for a real lead, instead opting for a makeshift one, made out of orange nylon rope. What a dirty hipster.
I felt that I had dressed appropriately enough for the occasion, going for a mix of dog walker meets 90’s rapper, in stilettos. In reality, I just wanted to wear my track pants to work and wearing them with my Chuck Taylors or my Air Maxs was just too literal.
My conclusion about Doggy Friday? Fridays are made exponentially more enjoyable by introducing dogs and puppies.
Oh and wearing track pants to work. That always helps.
