Sneak peek into what I am wearing to the Garden Party. I didn't need any new shoes I could of worn black - but these orange ones kept calling my name - and Orange Is the New Black!
Total fun - some orange closed in shoes (in summer ahhh the things girls have to do) in fact I am not used to girl shoes. Being a stay at home mum for over 21 years one tends to forget how to wear girl shoes... I'm normally barefoot and fancy free - or wearing my gumboots ot fluffy slippers. I'm training my feet to wear shoes again while I sit and study.
My outfit is all sorted for the rather grand Garden Party at the Governor Generals (rather fun aye). I'm wearing a dress I already have, and as I don't want to be matchy matchy with orange shoes and orange handbag I'm just going to use a green handbag I already have too. I brought a new dust jacket to hide any wibbly wobbly parts which I got $100 off with a loyalty voucher from Jean Jones. And my orange shoes were 20% off. (I don't think I will ever stop being frugal, it becomes a way of living really). As for a hat or fascinator I've still yet to choose.
Orange symbolises energy, enthusiasm, creativity, zest for life and it is the colour of the sacral chakra where gut instincts stem from..People either love orange or detest it - Me I love orange and have many orange - rust pieces in my wardrobe.. For me the colour orange radiates warmth, happiness and must suit me as I often get compliments when I wear orange. (I often wear purple too at the same time as nature does too)
HAVE you seen the Tv show Orange is the New Black?
Oh it is terrible good. Very shocking at time and I have to shut my eyes until the extremely graphic rude parts are over. Sensitive folk like me who have a vivid imagination too don't need to :see: so much. But if you can shut your eyes through THOSE parts it is an extremely funny and frightening show. The producers take you on quite a roller coaster ride..
I personally don't think it is a family watch - more a girls only kinda show - one where you sit at lunch time and watch...oh the things us stay at home mums do...
Have you seen it? Crazy eyes is one of my favourite characters, and Boo I think her name is cracks me up. Do you watch it too? Do tell...
