I'm a bit off my game at the moment due to my poor health and sick kids and blah blah blah moan moan sigh cough cough coughhhhhh hack snort gnnrrgghhhhhh.....
Anyway it is unfortunate timing my friends. Unfortunate timing indeed, because it is at this VERY MOMENT that the judges for the Kidspot Voices 2013 are hovering enthusiastically over nominated blogs, determining WHO WILL BE THE WINNER!? or even who will be in the Top 100??!? No pressure at all dudes. Nope. None.
Everyone just LOOK NORMAL OK!?
Anyway, and this has NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH BEING NOMINATED FOR VOICES 2013, but it just so happens that as well as being a talented Political Analyst, Travel Reporter, Satirist, Poet, Restaurant Critic and General Dispenser of Parenting Advice, I also fancy myself as a bit of a Fashion Blogger too.
Stop laughing please you guys, you are embarrassing me in front of the JUDGES!!!!
I totally AM a fashion blogger.
So this week has been designated FASHION WEEK here at Slapdash Mama HQ! It coincides rather depressingly with my recent resolution to buy NO NEW CLOTHES for the rest of 2013.
I'm not joking. This is really happening.
I need something to distract me from this decision, so I'm even going to be presenting you with an OOTD pictorial spread. Don't know what OOTD means? Neither did some of my new Twitter mates, when we were Twitting about stuff yesterday so I was only too happy to enlighten them with an explanation.
OOTD means "Outfit of the Day". Obvious now, no? And it is the hashtag that fashionista types give their selfie snippy snaps on Instagram. And fashion blogs are full of them.
The punters go CRAZY FOR THIS SHIZZ.
So I am getting on board too. For the punters, you see. I give them what they want.
Here's today's OOTD. You guys are lucky in a way you cannot imagine that the first OOTD was done on one of my work days because it means I am wearing actual CLOTHES!
|Here I am wearing a Review dress from 2010, a pink David Lawrence cardigan from a million years ago, and Red Phoenix Emporium necklace and earrings. I saw Red Phoenix jewellery on Faux Fuchsia's blog and because I too am a joiner, I immediately ran off and purchased some.|
|Here's my legs and shoes and attractive work office type carpet. Shoes are from an op shop. You've seen them before. Because I basically wear them every day.|
|Obligatory bathroom selfie. Large overflowing bin with paper towels really adds a sort of charm I think. Gritty. Like, I don't know, an episode of The Wire.|
There you have it guys. Before I go I want to leave you with a few fashion words of wisdom that have helped me over the years.
- Jeggings are for all!!!!
- Everyone looks good in a tunic, leggings and ballet flats.
- When in doubt, wear a dress.
- Colour is the new black! Or is that grey is the new black? Hang on maybe it's navy blue. Anyway, let's just say black is the new black and leave it at that!
Stay tuned for tomorrow's post where I regale you with my Slapdash Beauty Tips and post yet another OOTD.
Your ever faithful
