It is still summer here but browsing the lovely fashion blogs there are many northern hemisphere ones showing lovely fake furs. So I day dream about trying to make one/ finding one in the op-shop, although I am not keen on winter and being cold at all. Somehow winter clothes are better. I like the fur trapper style ones best, a bit more lived in looking.

I look through these blogs written by gorgeous twenty somethings and feel a bit sad as some of the clothes are too young for me (I am in my forties) though I would still like to dress like a twenty year old sometimes (my nine year old has some cute stuff too). Not sure where my cut off point for "she shouldn't be wearing that!" is. I am not ready for middle age quite yet, but neither do I want to look like "Betsey Johnson, Vivienne Westwood. Mind you, they are fashion designers and don't live in small town NZ.. I think of designers who can pull it off,
I have that feeling today that I want to get on with things, but the house is a mess and there are lots of things that need doing (boring things) before I can get on with anything nice and creative. I need to "pull my finger out".
