Pursuing natural health & thinking beyond the superficial. Deconstructing Culture.

Ok so today I am paying homage to spots, glorious spots – the fabric print kind not the skin kind 😉

I thought I’d go ‘all out’ (for me anyway) and wear some funky retro sunglasses with them which I bought as a novelty ages ago and never got round to wearing. My face shape is more suited to cat shaped shades but I had wanted more space age style rounded glasses at the time and having found they didn’t suit me as much I a bit disappointed and left these in a drawer for a while. But I finally decided, cat eye glasses aren’t that embarrassing and I’ll wear them regardless!

The glasses are a market stall buy (yes I love markets whether food, fashion, antique etc they are awesome), the polka halter top is from Chicstar.com, the skirt was a charity/thrift store find being Versace made in lined and draped chiffon. I consistently donate excellent unworn and pre-loved items to charity shops and know they have fabulous clothes in them at affordable prices and this is probably the only non-vintage high fashion branded item I own and would consent to wearing because it was bought from a charity shop and because my go-to Black wrap skirt that I’d been wearing for about 15 years had finally been laid to rest (RIP) and I couldn’t find another on short notice anywhere that suited me, otherwise I tend to steer clear of the big and luxury names. For example I particularly disliked some of the Versace for H&M advertising where they showed a model as if she was a clone on a production line and in very disorientating situations, everything was careful controlled and manipulated like puppetry – I really didn’t like what that could have been implying of the target audience. Moving on – I don’t remember where I bought the bolero from but it was probably eBay ha!

Hope you liked the pics!
