Strange how things come full circle – like with last week’s dress being worn 16 years after I bought it. Today’s outfit is one I wore in March/April 2004 to see Phantom of the Opera, so almost 10 years ago. Serendipity eh. How time flies, except when you’re going through it.
There were slight differences; it was actually a diamante belt with bigger stones, the pants were wide leg but different and the eyeshadow was Blue back then. The shoes were probably more comfortable, my hair was darker, I was less jaded. But it’s practically the same in design/style.
A decade ago
You know, I’ve said this a few times but there has to be some kind of link between the bloggers I get to know/post with and our outfits. I wore my outfit, thought of my post title and roughly what I was going to say, then went to look at the other blogs and voila! Synchronicity! Most of us have gone for the Black/dark look (checkout the post title of Marta from MimosasandFashion) in a fitted way with noticable ornamentation/accessories. Something in the ethernet and internet waves 😉
Other bloggers celebrating fancy friday
I just want to paraphrase Vanessa at Nessbow for a moment, she has many wise words but these latest apply to Dress Up Fancy Fridays. She says that getting out your glad rags on a Friday is a real pickmeup to the end of the week both as an instant mood enhancer because you’re wearing an outfit you like and makes you feel good but also as a boost after a long week. I find those words really heartwarming.

I love all the details on their clothes and how they smoothly fit into the style and flow of the outfits – and most importantly how they are worn, with flair!
Feeling a little more upbeat now – here’s an episode of the awesome Detentionaire, a revealing yet concealed cartoon – dark side of the moon anyone? 😉
