Expressing the inner self

Expressing the inner self

Do you flick through catwalk images in glossy magazines and think “What’s the point?!”

a. I could never look like that

b. I could never afford that

Try and think again. Catwalk shows and subsequent images provide an extravaganza, a glorious show of possibilities for a more updated you. Granted, alot of the designs are a little ‘out there’ but catwalk shows are designed to whet your appetite, to stir up your creativity and move you out of being stuck in your comfortable mud. If we merely look at what is on sale in high street shops and on-line we never really begin to perceive the endless looks that we can create. My inspiration for the coming months is this creation by Dolce and Gabbana. I would not wear the whole kit and caboodle as my life is not so dramatic but I do love the colour combination in the feathers, the highly detailed neckline of the top, the large earrings and the tone of red on her lips. For the Christmas season I may hunt down a fringed skirt. (I really don’t need plumes in my hair!).

In the meantime I have plumped for these fabulous white denim dungarees. I felt my wardrobe was getting just a little too serious and considered. I smile every time I put them on.
