my blundering fashion

I would like to say I have some kind of style. I love fashion, and I have always had something to do with it. I believe I am a little mainstream with the way I dress, and I cannot go past a pair of jeans, or anything with a skinny leg.

Over my life I have had a few different fashion blunders. There is no doubt I have not always rocked it. I thought at the time I was so hip and happening, but when I look back it is a little embarrassing. I guess that is the same for everyone. Maybe we all have a look at our style, and wonder what we were thinking. I have been through some awesome fashion decades with being born in the 70s. I have rocked the 80s, punk'd the 90s and I have cruised through to the 20th century.

During the Easter weekend I did the big hurl of old pieces I do not wear anymore. I had a thing for checkered pants, and that was in my early 20s. I have no idea why I have hung on to them for over 10 years. Did I really believe I would rock the checkered pants again? Maybe with a vest and a golf club in my hand I would have looked the part at a round of golf. (For the record, I can actually play golf. I played with my mum, and I was awesome at loosing the balls).

I did have a couple of nice finds that were well over 10 years old, and they still have style. For me now it is all about basics, mixed with a little floral, and some brights. And of course my rainbow of saltwater sandals!

I wonder if I will look back on my style today, and think the same?


  1. These pants ROCK! and I'm not talking driveway gravel, i'm talking rock of Gibraltar or Uluru. If you throw them out - they must be in my direction.

  2. zac has very similar pants on today. a vintage find off etsy.

    i think you look super :)

  3. I love the blue ones - they are just what I would buy now!

  4. I LOVE those pants! Learn to love again...

  5. I had a thing for checkered pants too.. I used to get the 'old man' ones from the opp shop!

  6. Cool pants! But I know what you mean about style... or lack of it, as may be the case with me.
    Sometimes, I hit the nail on the head and really own the look I'm wearing, but alot of the time, I don't know what I am thinking.
    I have 2 pairs of tight, skinny leg pants, an electric blue and a hot pink pair. I actually bought them at the long gone store called Hound Dog... so they're well over 10 years old (I'm not painting a great picture I know!)
    I love these pants and simply can't get rid of them, in fact, I still wear them. They're a little out there, but there is some history between us, which I kinda like :o)

  7. I love the pants! I totally see the blue one with yellow salts!
