OR… Is that your bed or your wardrobe.
I spent the afternoon with fabulous Dublin blogger, Arsheen of Fashion Filosophy. Who’s working on a new project, an on-line ezine, called Day Dreamer. She asked me to take part in a really cool styling idea. Myself and two other fashion-loving Dubliners have been given a randomly selected bag of clothes with the task of styling ourselves from the contents.
I tipped every piece out onto the floor and had a rummage through the lot. The scene was quite reminiscent of my bedroom floor / bed after a week of deciding which outfits to wear. I nearly always get to the point on a Sunday or Monday evening where I actually have to search to find the duvet to get into bed under all the outfits I’ve tried on. By this time in the week my room looks like the bed of the spare room at an 80’s dinner party. Except instead of being covered in posh coats, it’s covered in all my clothes. Tuesday is tidy the room, wash the clothes and hang up what I haven’t worn yet, day.
Looking through all the pieces Arsheen bought round was literally like fancy dress at my own private jumble sale. I’ve been sworn to secrecy as to what the final look was like until the mag is launched next month but I had the best laugh trying to style myself and then pose for photos. I can’t wait to see the final pieces.
