I did an impromptu and utterly pointless clothes shop at the end of yesterday's Big Writing Episode. Sadly all my outing did was remind me of those things that a woman of a certain age and small stature and a D cup should ALWAYS avoid.
1 Batwing sleeves. My god they're hideous. Honestly, they make me want to self-harm.
2 Cardigans with ruffles. Look fabulous on some women, but make me look like the mother of the bride.
3 Ditto blouses with ruffles. The mother of the bride ringing a school bell.
4 Turtle necks. I shudder just to glance at them . They make me look like something out of a Russ Meyer film (and I don't mean that in a nice, Nigella, 'oh my god you're so Curvaceous and Sexy' way.
5 Those Roman sandal thingys that are all the rage now. I wore them under sufferance in the 80s. I will not go back there.
All I wanted was a frock like the one in the picture. Is that too much to ask?
I wish I'd tried harder in Form Four Needlecraft. xx
