(Ray Davies, The Kinks, 1966)
I'm not a dedicated follower of fashion and never have been (I hate shopping for clothes), but today I am wearing stripes - and oh my goodness me, they're horizontal! Horizontal stripes are evil! They're the worst type of stripe dontcha know...the stripe most of us should avoid at all costs!
(see, no dedication!)
Even a hundred and fifty plus years ago the 'experts' were telling women to avoid them:
"The woman who is stout should remember that solid colours always draw less attention to stoutness than checked, flowered and horizontally striped materials"
(The New Way Course in Fashionable Clothes-making, 1926)
Insert 'raspberry' here.
Anyway, that's just a bit of padding for you.
(thank goodness there's another lovely guest frockster pencilled-in for tomorrow - clearly I am running out of interesting conversation)
I don't really care about stripes making me look fat.
(although I've popped on a shirt to cover my bingo arms/tuck shop wings - and this one's new to me (and really grosses me out) nana flaps - ewwwww!)
I bought this Gorman dress online and I was just glad it fit me.
(I've had to send things back before and that's a pain...does anyone else think those sizing charts are a load of old rubbish?)
I'd be even gladder if you would sponsor me.
I'm going a bit cray-cray, and there's still sixteen days to go! For my mental health and the health of your ovaries, hit the give now button here. Please!
