Day 335.2 – Put a star on my head and call me Christmas!

How could I resist this red Portmans dress and some green Christmas tree beads for the Annual Radio Lollipop Volunteers’ Christmas party?!

Suddenly realised that all my playing photos from the party celebrating another year of making kids in hospital smile were a bit dark and you couldn’t actually see my dress (hence the above photo!) but boy did we have fun!

This dress sure has a lot of tales to tell since being purchased around 2002 and coming to Hong Kong and back. A friend in Brisbane always used to say to me: Oh no not that dress! I thought we were going to have a quiet night!
Yep it is true – this dress knows how to have fun and loves awesome Charlie’s Angels poses!

Day 330 – Fluoro Revival is Mine!!

My Cotton On man shirt and Sportsgirl shorts were the combo I needed to accompany my red Birks.

I knew a lot of walking was required to take my mum and my aunt shopping … But we did take a couple of breaks.
I couldn’t miss this photo opportunity!

The highlight was finding something I could buy in Fluoro! I saw a kid wearing these shoes the other day and I asked her mother if they came in big sizes … Well a little bit bigger than kids’ anyway! Here they are!

I have been allowed to buy shoes this year as I had to throw so many pairs out last year so shoes were my key to not missing out on Fluoro! Hurray!!

Day 328 – Friday Day Wear

Totally forgot to upload my work outfit on Friday and was so excited because I wasn’t wearing any black so here it is a day late!
I started with my hand-me-down safari pants from mum and wanted to wear my red Camper Mary-Janes. That meant a navy or red belt and a jumper for cold air-con at work that wasn’t pink or black …

Any excuse to wear this navy Gap cardi – I love it! And this belt from Old Navy had been a favourite since the day I bought it.

Day 329 – Reunion 2 – old friends, new dress

Searching through my cupboard the other day I came across this little number that hasn’t made it out of the closet all year! The brief for tonight was Christmassy … This had enough red and green but I added a bauble just in case I got out Christmassed … Or in trouble for missing the Christmas brief! Oh and a lucky cat for err good luck!

I spotted this dress on an Italian singer at a concert in Hong Kong and lamented never being able to own it. The girl sitting next to me in the audience promptly told me exactly which little side street to hit to have one of my very own.

And the very next day I did.

Having not worn it in over a year, I wondered if I would love it still when I put it on. Well, luckily I only had 10 minutes to get ready so I couldn’t change my mind and really enjoyed wearing it all night. Not too hot, not too cool, extremely comfy and a little bit different from all the tiny dresses the much younger crowd were wearing at the Brunswick Social Club where you need plenty of room for dumplings! I felt like I was back in Hong Kong with their fabulous dumpling menu but was surrounded by friends from school from over 20 years ago and all along I was in Brisbane! What a great night!

Day 328 – Reunion Weekend Reunion 1

Reunion 1 is Tony’s high school friends who have moved to Queensland. Great to hear the stories and great to meet the people who the man I love hung out with 30 years ago. Everyone was so welcoming – lovely night with Coorparoo Bowls Club’s Open Mic Night as a back drop. I have missed musical Friday nights.

This is my supermarket dress that I picked up between bread and deodorant!

Day 326 – curiosity killed the …
