On Saturday I went Open Housing with my friend Ms M. We didn't venture too far but managed to visit both a house built in 1513 and a block of flats completed last year.
So here I am modelling age-appropriate open house clothing. My jeans are from GAP. They are also too big for me. I wish I had got a pair that fitted. I lost some weight last year but still couldn't believe that I would have fitted into the next size down.
On top I am wearing a white cotton shirt from Muji. It is at least three years old and in the photograph you can't tell that there is a slightly odd yellow stain on it.
My cardigan is from Toast, the store for liberal over 40 year olds, spring summer season 2009.
My bag is from Brics and I bought it from Heal's using vouchers I was given as a leaving present when I left my job in Sarf London. This was some time in 1998. I still like this bag very much. Inside it is a cagoule and an A-Z which only owners of special needs phones now carry. (I am getting an iPhone next weekend, much excitement).
On my feet which you can't really see I'm wearing converse sneakers, grey with a subtle pink trim, purchased about 8 years ago.
For those of you who can't read backwards the art work says, "Stop Being Poor".
Really I think I should give up my day job and become a full time style blogger.
