...from my wardrobe!
This week you have a challenge. It is no good me being a bright spark when it comes to Wednesday's and handing it to you on a plate. So far the bush telegraph had told me someone went and shopped the whole school run look and another got her interview look together for that day and landed a wonderful contract with a great day rate. All good stuff but... none of us can escape the fact hard times are likely to get harder. You should attempt to squirrel away as much as possible - she says with a growing wish list in her head!
So, in a real make do push I challenge you to grab a dress out of the wardrobe you keep saving for best. I don't care if it has sequins or marabou on it - pull it out. Put it on and then go through your knitwear and try cardigans and jumpers on top of it. Select the one you like the best and then add a ribbon around your waist or a skinny belt. I don't care what colour it is nor should you.
Then all you have to do is add knee high boots or some courts or flat pumps. Try not to wear tights. Either go bare legged or be adventurous and wear some fashion editor ankle socks.
Et voila. You've been creative and experimented. Plus you've saved money even if it is only in your head. Never underestimate what is in your wardrobe or what you can do.
Now al you have to do it take a photograph and email me your best efforts if you are brave enough.
