I always admired with dreamy eyes, the collection of dresses housed in my friend Amy’s wardrobe. She is an executive assistant to a few high powered so and sos and needs to dress appropriately. Did that explain the 600 dresses that she moved into the wardrobe she now shared with her fiance?
When I first moved out of Sydney, Mum asked me if I was sure I didn’t want to get rid of some of my clothes so that A didn’t judge me. While I don’t have the ultimate Amy wardrobe, I spent my first 2 years of paycheques on clothes and partying.
During the two years in our new town, we have moved from a rental property with 3 double wardrobes (2 for clothes, 1 for my shoes), to our own apartment where I spent the first 3 months living out of a suitcase – many of my items do not fit in our temporary wardrobes and are, sadly, still in storage.
In my professional world, as a teacher in a regional town, jeans seem to be the uniform du jour. Only you all know where I stand on pants!
Is it wrong that I need more than jeans? It made my day in November 2011 when a student said to me “Miss, I don’t think you have worn the same thing twice this year” and so an idea was born
Term 1 starts back January 27, 2012. For the 205 days of the new school year, I will be documenting the clothes and the accessories I wear everyday and it will be fashion-tastic.
I look forward to entertaining you with my wonderful dresses, skirts, (the occasional pant leg), my shoes, sunnies, hats, scarves, necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
