Good bye to my Fashion Mashie wardrobe $5 a piece. I’m at Coorparoo Bowls Club’s Car Boot Sale today – it is time to sell the things that didn’t go to the RSPCA. We dropped 4 bags off at their thrift in February and today is part 2 of getting ready to buy more clothes. I obviously broke the habit but I am starting a new job in a week and I would like to buy some new clothes for my fresh start.
Just need to make some money so I can afford to shop again!

Sportsgirl shorts and a pink top that, I just realised, has just been to its third massive family occasion. I bought it in Worcester, England when I was working there at a summer school.
After my Dad died in 2000, I moved back to Australia and a month later it was my birthday so I had a family birthday party to get everyone together for a happy reason. We went to Pancake Manor and had a pancakes in pink party and I wore this top.
Then, in 2004, we had a family reunion at the beach with all of Dad’s side of the family. We all got together from all over the world and I wore this top. We had a classic photo with me and my cousin and a family friend who were all born within days of one another and all lived together at different times in our young adult life. The others are tall guys and I look mini between them in this top before I started trapeze and got these bulging shoulders I have now;).
And finally today we got together at Coorparoo Bowls Club with old family friends, school friends and family to catch up while my siblings are all in Brisbane. It seems fitting that I should wear it! I only thought of it because I saw a woman at the beach wearing a top like this with little shortie shorts and it looked fab. I think I will still try that … When I’ve done a bit more exercise!
Today is Sweet As Sunday at Coorparoo Bowls Club – celebrating all things New Zealand. I thought I would be at home in the morning getting some work done, head over to the club for lunch and laughs and then back home to finish my work but when the wind picked up and rained threatened we had a call asking if upstairs at the club was free. So we headed down hours earlier than expected with 1 minute to get dressed … With no time to design a whole new outfit, the safest thing was to put 2 shirts I know I have worn but never together on at the same time.
On arrival, I find my young Kiwi friend who has spent ages putting his outfit together – his All Blacks T, brown shorts which are the colour of the kiwi bird, red socks that say “Team New Zealand” and blue shoes the colour of a big, blue Kiwi sky. You can choose your clothes to say so much, can’t you?
I had to go from brekkie at Mum’s with rellies from down south then work then lunch at Coorparoo Bowls Club.www.coorparoobowlsclub.com.au for $10 roast for lunch.
I didn’t think I could add another colour to my outfit if I tried and then I met up with my hunky boyfriend for weekly Sunday roast at Coorparoo Bowls Club and he just added to the rainbow fiesta! And yes I’m 3 steps up to be this tall!
My t-shirt was a gift in 2004 from a friend in Hong Kong who always makes me laugh and we seem to compete with one another to see who can make the other laugh more. I made him laugh by thinking (for years) that this t-shirt was just funny ’cause it rhymed with “I don’t know” … Apparently I was wrong. Too late, I had worn it to a wide range of inappropriate places and no one had ever told me otherwise … Sorry, Mum!
