My Very Late... THIS IS!

Kitty's Kaboodle kindly came up with the theme for the week (how's that for alliteration?!)... This is my most favourite outfit that expresses my personal style...

To be honest, this isn't my most favourite outfit ever. In fact, it's one of the few full length shots of me. BUT, redeeming factors include:

a) my hat - I bought it in Paris and I am a huge fan of funny little hats. This one being one of my favourite ever - for sentimental qualities, and for the Robin Hood-esque look it bestows on me.

b) my Scanlan & Theodore slouch pants that are long gone. They were good to me.

c) my trusty Converse sneakers. I love them. They fit my foot. They're comfortable. I love them damn it!

d) wearing my hair long. I recently got it cut just short of my shoulders. I think it was a mistake. Lucky it grows, huh?

On another front, I am a mad fan of dresses (just not right now because they're not that convenient for breastfeeding.. And I love love love my mum's things that she kept.. Such as these things I have photographed here.

But on the flipside, I love to dress super, very, very, ridiculously, to the max girlie in sweet vintage dresses that I pick up around the traps. I like vintage. Very, very much. I think that's my signature style - a bit of vintage is usually thrown into the mix.

Here are just a few of my treasures. Oh and of course my vintage hand-painted kimono... I was wearing it when I met my husband.. Ooohh ahhhh.

Big ups to Three Buttons for hosting This is..

Look at YOU all modelie (but in a cool way)! I love the clothes, super funky and fun.

I'm sounding like my mother so I'm going to stop now.

Robin Hood is a totally great look. I love that hat. It was gently suggested to me the other week that the outfit I was wearing looked very Peter Pan-esque.

That last dress is sooo sl-sl-slinky and sexy!
