I rummaged the family Flickr archives to find a photo of me expressing "my style" instead of modeling for a new pic. This was taken in autumn 2006, and I wear that outfit, and variations of it, everday.
The skirt is made by me using a pattern from Sew U by Wendy Mullin. I adapted the pattern to make it more a-line and forgiving. There's some applique because I can't help myself. The brown jumper is a hand-me-down from my younger sister, she's always been taller than me and we can't seem to get out of the mind-set that I should get her old clothes. I'm wearing a brown t-shirt underneath, and flat brown boots. I like brown, ok?
I wear those boots when it rains, flip-flops when it's sunny and green converse at other times. I have a small assortment of t-shirts and jumpers, two pairs of jeans, two skirts and three dresses. Everything is in brown, dark green or rust colour and that's it. My style could best be described as: frugal, long-lasting, and infuriating for my family:
Husband, despairing: "My god, can't you buy yourself some clothes?"
Me: "For goodness sake, I'm too busy... and my sister will be having a clear out soon..."
