MMJ Day 17: Throwing Shapes

The other day, Christine left a comment which mentioned how different clothes look when you actually move in them. And she is right, of course. So I thought I would demonstrate my Friday outfit in action.

Disclaimers: no children or animals were injured during filming.

Any similarity to persons living or dead is entirely coincidental.

These pictures were taken before a glass of Orvieto Classico, Lidl £3.99 per bottle.

The sheer joy of wide trousers is that you don't get a VPL... though it was touch and go for these pictures!

The high waist means you can throw some really silly shapes and your blouse remains tucked in.

I take bookings for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs.

Just don't ask me to sing.

Today I wore:

Neutral version of the Eva Dress 1940's trousers, blogged here.

White dobby dot Lisette Portfolio blouse, blogged here.

Audrey-in-Unst came too!

Two-tone shoes.

And my bluebird brooch (as yesterday).

This month of style-blogging has certainly taught me a lot about the importance of photo quality. I have had far more comments on my MMJ pictures on Flickr where the photo has been well lit and I have looked... um... streamlined.

Tomorrow I get my hair cut - and not a moment too soon!

I LOVE these wide 'oxford style' trousers - so comfy with a high waist - they suit you very well. Hope all is good with you Roobeedoo

Well you are just over half way through June and you've done really well. I have been watching, just short on brain space. I loved the polka dot blouse and blue trousers, personally I would love to see that neckline and material as a dress. There's a challenge for you. ;-)

So when are you sewing the Wonder Woman outfit? ha ha
I like the action shots- makes me notice how enviably slim you are too!
Anyway, I love reading your blog so I would like to give you this
