Grey sleeveless t-shirt
Grey denim shorts
Conundrum…. What to wear to the Tate Modern?...
Potential singletons hanging out there could be just my type. Geeky looking creative types are my Achilles heel....
I need to work within the confines of the experiment, but not get stuck wearing the same thing day in, day out – that feels like a cop out and a good friend of mine once told me 'repeating is cheating' (although we weren't talking about grey t-shirts at the time...)
Sunglasses - Monki, T-shirt - H&M
I feel like what I wear today needs to relate to the venue I’m in.
Its too hot for black, and white today would be too impractical (planning a spot of sunbathing on any patch of green I can get my ass on.)
Customised shorts and shoes - Miss Selfridge
So I take the middle ground and go for grey - again. Maybe I'll blend in to all that concrete and steel....That is supposed to be what I'm aiming for isn't it??
As I stand and look at myself in the mirror, I am surprised at how comfortable I feel. My usual instinct would be to reach for a studded cuff, a necklace or a pair of earrings (and on some days, all three) to add what I would consider a St Louis signature to this outfit, but today that feels unnatural….
There’s no distraction, nothing to complicate matters and more importantly …nowhere for me to hide.
I’m not even wearing a watch…Jackie would be proud.
It occurs to me that all though my posturing confidence, I have actually been hiding behind my clothes for a long time, and not just my clothes. My hair, my makeup, my accessories… I haven’t actually wanted anyone to look at me… even though my choice of wardrobe has implied the opposite.
I’ve been trying to distract with ‘the ole razzle dazzle’ because I haven’t wanted anyone to actually see me… my face, my body. In case I came up short and was found wanting…
Wow…there’s a revelation of biblical proportions….
Well, I guess it is a Sunday.
