it's all about clothes

On a more cheery note, it's time for another round of....what are you wearing today?

I myself am dressed in suitably cheery garb for such a depressing wet day. I'm wearing a fawn needle-cord skirt with two small frills going down the front, and a cherry-red, tight Lyle and Scott jumper (sweater to you 'mericans), which I got second hand about ten years ago and which I love. Under this I'm wearing a '70s cream cheese-cloth shirt with cherry-red flowers, with the collar coming out over the jumper. I look like I am in a country house party in about 1948, but I feel very cosy. And it looks cute, too.

And you?

How much do I envy you and your fabulous skirts! I am wearing: a calf-length black fishtail velvet skirt, which is much more stylish than it sounds, and a purple silk poloneck on top, with an orientalist Chinese-type pink dragon embroidered on the arm. With my falling-apart boots (€180 is just too much for a replacement) and my growing-out hair - but in half an hour this shall be transformed! Transformed! for I am Lunatic Fringe bound.

It's actually an OK outfit, in a prudish postgrad kind of way. And it's warm!

Is that the jumper you were wearing at lunch the other day? I do like that embroidered dragon!

It is! Oh, and I glossed over the stripey knee socks. They're not really visible, and not really, erm, very sophisticated either.

I envy both you and glitzfrau, for I am clad in crap, I forgot to iron mode. Jeans and a dusky pink knit top with half length sleeves (it's incredibly warm despite such unseasonal arm showing). And fawn Clarks runners, of all things.

I am wearing a black and white yukata, because I'm not going to do one damn thing today other than read, watch movies, and eat things. Yaaaay!
Nov. 11th, 2003 07:58 am (UTC)
Hurrah! That's what I've been doing today, too.

I'm fairly dull on days like today, and go for comfort. So, a pair of old black trousers, and a predominantly orange-striped "jumper", a wool-silk mix that sounds nicer than it actually is - although it's great for temperature regulation (the silk gives the wool a better responsiveness), the manufacturers didn't pick the right (re expensive) fibers, so there are little "pills" on the knit surface. *pout* And it's less than 6 months old!

Crazy(don't buy "New Ireland" unless it's on sale! Severely discounted!)Soph

It's that game again!

Blue cord knee-length skirt (the sibling of the blue cord flares I was wearing last time you asked, in fact), a grey lambswool polo-neck jumper, knee-high black leather boots. Hair looking a bit of a needs-a-cut mess, but I'm otherwise done up a bit for a meeting with civil servants this morning. Hence the deployment of the black raincoat rather than my beloved sheepskin-lined denim jacket.

Hurrah for cord knee-length skirts! So snug and practical, and they can be dressed up or down. I love them. Which of course is why I'm wearing one now.

Shit, I'm starting to sound like a fashion magazine. I'll stop that now.

Bless Dunnes indeed! I got a great blue jumper there the other week for just €20. The only good thing about living out here in the sticks is the fact that the huge Cornelscourt Dunnes is five minutes walk from my front door.

olive green zip up cardigan? sounds suspiciously alike one i bought in penneys for a fiver... the zip is off-center though. wear it nearly every day, <3.

(i was predictably mismatched as ever today. warlords of pez t-shirt whose logo disintegrated in the first wash so it's got an interesting 'distressed, sedate now' er... Look, jeans i nicked from my sister, black mary jane/fred astaire shoes, blue hoody nicked from my other sister, jelly bracelets from urbn in a sale for 2 euro, pink and black striped knee socks, vintage green metal bangle i found under the piano yesterday... scary strangers on buses call me 'colourful')

Your outfit sounds cute! I am sporting a tunic-style chocolate-brown henley sweater over white t-shirt. Tan, loose-fitting khakis. Black socks with tan floral design on them. Red, pull-on shoes, which I love beyond all reason. Wedding ring, watch, necklace with a large tan stone on a string of amber beads, dangly amber earrings, Red Rum lipgloss from Bliss. hair is fluffy and smells lightly of Lush's Karma perfume, thanks to my shampoo.

I am wearing a bright orange embroidered cheesecloth shirt that I got in the post from my mother today (yay mother!) and black combat trousers.

Reading through the comments here makes me feel like I am sad and untrendy and I need to go shopping, post haste.

My clothes are so boring compared to everyone else's, but I am very comfy.
I've got on a white tank top with a v cut out near the neck trimmed with lace and stretchy microfiber pants in a slate blue. The flipflops I had on are over in the kitchen - please god, don't let the dog eat them. Somewhere, there's a slate blue matching zip up jacket with white trim to complete my whole track suit ensemble.

Weren't you wearing the same skirt last time?

(See! I pay attention!)

I'm wearing bright red wool-crepe trousers with bright yellow lining (why yes, I did make them myself!), a black long sleeved almost-off-the-shoulder T shirt from Mango, and a knee-length black mohair cardigan which is made by Per Una but I got it off Ebay, and a red glass heart pendant which I bought in Prague six years ago. And over-the-knee grey striped socks with T-bar Doc Martens sandals which are five years old.

Hm, I'm a very random mixture of high street, homemade, second hand and Extremely Ancient!
Nov. 12th, 2003 04:16 am (UTC)
Hee, it is the same skirt!

Every time you mention your home-made breeks, I am jealous. I wish I had your mad dressmaking skillz.

I am wearing a v-neck brown sweater with a pink v-neck, lace trimmed t-shirt under it, hot pink tights, my $25 Michael Kors denim miniskirt I cannot stop wearing, and brown fake crocodile-skin pumps. It's a bit much for a Veteran's day thrift store excursion, but I've always found that the best way to cheer myself up is to wear something bright. Hence, hot pink.

Hence, hot pink.

And cherry red, in my case.
