In lieu of what I wrote the other day, about how my life is spectacularly extra, extra ordinary, and that dressing is dressing up, this post comes at good time. I’m not going to pretend and say this is what I wear when I’m, for example, at home eating a perfectly-cut bowl of fruit or reaching for a CD from the top shelf. Who uses CD’s anymore, anyway? (Wait, I don’t get dressed for Spotify either.) My floordrobe consists of pieces that specifically weren’t made for my gender (brother’s old sweatshirt, hubby’s cardigan…etc), which shuffles slightly depending on what time of the month it is and whether I want to smell of smeared chocolate or not. Gap asked for my favourite winter basics from their current season to be edited into a Christmas wishlist, and I thought it might be fun to shoot a few scenarios and what I wish I were wearing, had I been blessed with diligence, or common hygiene.

    I love them too, I just got the latest Christina Aguilera CD and it took me straight back to year 2000. I guess people just stop because there’s Spotify and I personall just rip the music off the CD into my HD so I have everything at one go! ;)

  37. I’m not sure where you’re getting your information, but good
    topic. I must spend a while finding out more or understanding more.
    Thanks for fantastic info I used to be in search of this information for my mission.

  38. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
