A case of so far so good this week. A couple of items in the media and some good news on the Chameleons front.
Regular readers may know – assuming I did remember to blog about it (Ed: uh-oh, dippy moment ahoy!) – that I dropped Boots an email about their make up services. Well, thanks to a lucky gap in my packed work calendar (!) and rather than play telephone tag, I dropped into to branch in question as the whole email thing wasn’t working for either party. Sometimes I swear technology eats your messages rather than deliverying them! 🙂 So we’ve got a provisional date booked (25th November)…. and Boots were kind enough to offer 10% reduction on shop prices. RESULT! 😀
I also popped into New Look as I’d seen they had some bodysuits (remember them?) in stock. I popped a few in my basket and snook off to the men’s department downstairs. The black one was okay, but okay was as far as it went. In the end, I put it back and headed home. I got so far to the car and got distracted by some cute looking shapewear in a department store. Again, same trick as before – a pair of blokes trousers in the basket and said item underneath. The item was a medium control body but while it felt gorgeous (and did wonders in tightening up certain curves) the cups weren’t quite right. I guess that’s because a) I don’t have any t*ts to speak of (despite having brought my fake ones along) and b) it was multiway. A ‘way’ which never seems to work for me, but lessons learned eh? 🙂
Which leads us back to the ever circling news story about women’s clothes for men. This time around, it’s the BBC and this report on mantyhose. Ack! That’s an abombination of a word. 🙂 To be fair, it’s more leggings and skirts for men. Kilts, maybes, but skirts? No and certainly not the one modelled in the video. Oddly, I do remember a micro-trend for leggings for guys in the 90s. I think that was part of the Grunge thing going on, but they were worn either with knackered jeans or long shorts. Not sure the netball skirt is a look I’ll be sporting in either mode 🙂
Also, last week saw the High Heel-a-thon… an event I caught sight of in the paper after it had finished. (Ed: the shame!). A day out in Leeds? In heels? For the good cause of Breast Cancer Haven *and* attendance by the lovely Kimberley Walsh (of Girls Aloud fame)! Drat and double drat 🙂 Oh well! Maybe next year eh?
