Day 5

Five days in a row! Are you impressed? I am! Although it’s just by the skin of my teeth, coz I totally forgot to take a pic this morning in my meeting dress.
So here I am in a ball gown, sans makeup. Because what else do you throw on before bed?

Once upon a time in my event organising career I would do gala events, so I have a wardrobe full of gowns. I love this one. I justified buying it at the time because I had shoes that matched it *perfectly* so I wouldn’t need to buy new ones, but in my scurry to get a picture tonight I couldn’t find them, and sadly, I suspect they were one of a number of soles lost in the last great shoe cull.

Goodnight xx

Day 4

Today was Aunty Margaret’s funeral. Emotional on a whole lot of levels. Lots of family, and support, and tears, and love.

Enough said. So here’s a picture of my mum and me at the service.

KaelaJael and Her Awesome Shoes Present “FROCKTOBER 3rd – the Flapper Years”

Day 3

It’s Friday. Finally. Make that Flapper Friday!

It’s Friday. Finally. Make that Flapper Friday. It was going to be Flashback Friday, coz in my endeavours to stick with the theme for this year’s FROCKTOBER, I did find *several* outfits that date waaayyyyy back. Specifically, the dress I wore for my engagement, and my “going away” suit…and since I’ve been married close to twenty five years you might be able to imagine what they look like. 🙂 and while I’m reasonably confident that I could still fit my engagement dress, I suspect I might not get the zips done up on my suit. Anyway, they’re a little scary looking, and no one deserves to see that! So I wussed out.

Instead, and still on a wedding theme, I’m wearing the outfit I bought for Raivanswed a couple of years ago. The wedding had an Art Deco themes so I was delighted when I found this dress. I’ve paired the dress with my Shoes of Towering…thankfully I had them on for like two minutes to take the photo and then they were off again, otherwise I suspect I wouldn’t be able to walk tomorrow at the funeral.

And I do love it. Just sadly I don’t get to wear it too often. So, yay for FROCKTOBER and an excuse to don it!

Day 2

Sequels are never quite as good as the original, are they?

But at least in this one we get gratuitous shoey goodness, obviously shot with a me-gaze, coz SHOES!

This is my autumn sprite dressy despite in being spring. I love the colours in this, though I have never been able to match a bolero or cardi or wrap with it that I’ve been completely happy with.

And those shoes. They’re my favourites. Kind of old faithfuls now, because I have had them for years, but my feet loved them from the moment I wore them. They never stressed me out, or made me ache, or gave me blisters. Sadly though, my knees are not so enamoured with them anymore, and they are insistent we don’t spend as much time together.

KaelaJael and Her Awesome Shoes Present “FROCKTOBER 1st”

Well, it’s here.

Day 1.

Really, this is going to be a challenge, coz I have a short attention span, and the likelihood of me blogging everyday for a month *is* slim. But I am going to give it a shot.

So today, I had to work. Yes, I hear the sarcastic “poor you” many of you are muttering, and I realise I am in a fortunate situation where I don’t have to go to a full time, soul sucking job. But *still*…it’s wooorrrkkk. /whine

Anyway, I had intended to post a pic of my the dress I was wearing to work, but then I decided that maybe the first day of FROCKTOBER really needed something a little more dressy.

And it’s hard to go wrong with a little black number….so here is my offering for day 1:

This is one of those dresses I have had forever. I’m not sure where, or even when, I acquired it, but it’s a favourite. It’s wash and wear, which is always a great thing, and it can be dressed waaayyyyyy up, and yet it’s so comfortable. Lots of breathing *and* eating room.

I am doing FROCKTOBER in honour of my Aunty Marg who passed away from ovarian cancer last Thursday.
