Stuff I’ve already done
It’s been a busy few weeks. We were in Papua New Guinea for two weeks, during which time our little black cat Huffle Mawson passed away. We were devastated but she was staying with my parents, whom she loved, so she wasn’t alone. Then we had a week at home and I’ve been back at work for a week. Talk about busy! And two weeks from now we’ll be in our new house!
With all of that going on, I haven’t had much of a chance to wear my frocks or shoes. I’ll have to do my best during the party season.
Leona Edmiston “Briola” dress; Joanne Mercer patent peep toes
Worn to: Rockpool for my birthday dinner
Leona Edmiston “Helena” dress (worn with Sandler wedges, already saved)
Worn to: work, and lunch at the Bistro
I also wore another dress to a cocktail function but forgot to take a photo. I’ll include it next week.
This weekend I have also cleaned out my wardrobe in preparation for moving house. You’ll notice that my shoe and dress counts have gone down slightly. Still a long way to go before I save everything though!
Massive effort this week to save five dresses and three pairs of shoes.
Capture rose print dress; Wittner patent peep toes (already saved)
Worn to: work, but more specifically lunch at the Press Club
Leona Edmiston “Jazz” dress; MiuMiu navy suede sandals
Worn to: dinner at Zio’s
I am thrilled to have saved so many clothes and shoes this week because for the next two weeks I will not be doing any saving at all, as I’ll be cruising in Papua New Guinea on a holiday.
Steady progress again this week, two pairs of shoes and two dresses saved.
I have had those red Diana Ferrari shoes for at least two years and I’ve never worn them before. They are a bit unforgiving but I wore them around the house for a few nights and then to work and now I think they’ll be okay. Very happy I saved them as I love the look of them.
Good progress this week, two pairs of shoes saved, one dress, one skirt and a top.
Yeah, so we bought a house. So excited! It’s our dream house and we get the keys right before Christmas. We were originally thinking we’d move just after Christmas but now we’re so excited we might do it the weekend before. We’ll see.
No post last week as I didn’t think I was going to save any shoes, but thankfully on Sunday I managed to wear these out on my travels.
I posted on Facebook when I wore those pointy shoes that I now remember why I didn’t love pointy shoes last time they were in fashion. Talk about uncomfortable! But they are safe now, even if I end up getting rid of them.
So a good two weeks, with four pairs of shoes and two dresses saved.
Success this week in saving dresses… the shoes not so much. But I’ll get there.
I’m now well past halfway in the dress challenge but not even close in the shoe challenge. I hope the weather improves soon!
Progress on both the shoe and wardrobe challenges this week.
As you can tell from the shoes, the weather is slowly improving here. Although the forecast for tomorrow is not great: 14C and hail.
I’ve just realised that I counted one dress twice in my challenge (a few weeks ago). Now I have another dress to save, dammit!
So this is the half way point of my shoe and wardrobe challenge. I managed to save both one dress and one pair of shoes this week, which is good.
I have now passed the half way mark in my dress challenge, but I am seriously behind on saving shoes. As I’ve mentioned before, I am hoping that when the weather warms up again, I’ll be able to save a lot more pairs. I really don’t want to have to give any up!
I do have some pairs which are exempt from the challenge, including my very first pair of Christian Louboutin heels, and my Jimmy Choos, but I still have a lot of pairs to get through.
This week I managed to save one more dress. Unfortunately it was a new dress so the ratio of dresses to saved dresses has not changed.
As you can see from the peep toes, we actually had a really nice day here on Tuesday and I managed to leave the house without tights! It was very exciting.
I also bought these shoes, to wear with the navy dress I got a few weeks ago. I’ll be wearing the shoes and dress to my cousin’s wedding in November.
This week I have been very, very bad. Not only did I not save any shoes, I only saved one dress and bought TWO more. Bad.
I did indeed buy the navy dress mentioned last week, and then I bought this dress too.
My dear boy is having a small procedure in hospital tomorrow. It’s nothing serious but he will be knocked out for it; some good vibes would be appreciated!
I know, it’s a bit late this week but better late than never.
I have managed to save both one pair of shoes AND one dress this week – quite proud of myself really.
Also, yes I did buy the navy dress. Of course I did. And it is gorgeous. I will photograph it with your shoe suggestions and you can tell me what you think.
