I don’t know a thing about fashion, nor do I care. And this is how bad I am: Today, I bought a pretty sweater because I love the colour. A colour Paul would have hated! (Bile green, he’d have called it.) It was on sale though, and I liked it. And it was buy one, get one 50% off, so I bought another one, too. (But a different colour and one that Paul may have approved of.)

But the sweaters are too snug for regular jeans which are lumpy with loops and buttons and pockets, so I decided I’d wear them with my bargain £10 jeggings I got at Primark last year.

And the only shoes I have for my jeggings are a pair of fake Prada’s that I got on sale a couple of years ago. Only the black plastic “pleather” stuff is peeling off the heels. And I can’t find my black electrical tape, so I am colouring in the cheap white plastic underneath with a black marker.

And for all of this, the only name brand item – and one I’ll have paid full price for – is the Sharpie. Yes folks, only name brand office supplies for this geek!

I know I will probably look ridiculous in my get-up, but if it’s comfortable, I don’t care. And if you don’t like it, just don’t look at me.

    1. Could do with spring right about now…
      It is a fun colour! I like the bright colours but am always afraid to be so bold these days. So I’m trying to re-learn the art of not caring, as long as it makes me happy!

  1. I can’t wait to see that sweater. The colors remind me of a blouse I had (and still hang onto) many, many moons ago. I call it my lemon-lime blouse and plan to frame a swatch of the material. Glad to hear you’re still using the jeggins.

  2. Lol, bile green!
    I think it looks lovely. And I’m jealous if you can get away with jeggings. The lumps and bumps would be all mine I’m afraid!!
