Outfit posts and why I don't do them!

I love other people's outfit posts and wish that blogs had been around when I was younger, thinner and more glamourous!

I would love to do outfit posts, but as someone who 90% of the time works from home, it's not going to be happening in the near future! However it got me to thinking about what my favourite outfits of all time have been. Now of course most of the time when I've been wearing a favourite outfit, I wouldn't necessarily have a picture of it, so I'm going to trawl my old photos looking for favourites outfits of all time, here are 3 to start with, and then you'll see why I should never do outfit posts at the end!

I hope you're interested in it, I hope I'm not wittering on for no reason but hey isn't that part of having a blog!!

So here we go

This used to be one of my favourite dresses, this was taken, oh god I dunno 18 years ago maybe - yes I'm that old! - but I loved this dress!



Actually I also love the shoes, especially for dancing in! That's my lovely husband I'm dancing with, and the photos are a bit arty cos they were taken by a professional photographer.



This is me with my mate Julie, as we always say Big Red and Little Red, talking hair here! I LOVE this dress, I think it may be one of my favourites of all time, it's gold lame and also it's a good shape for my figure which always helps! This was taken at one of my favourite weekenders the Rhythm Riot.

And this is a perfect reason why someone like me should never do an outfit post! This is a favourite pic of my husbands, I have no idea why, except it is me all over.  That is a beautiful hawaiian print dress, and what do I do, I put someone's boot on with it and then get someone to take a pic, shame on me!  Well it was Viva Las Vegas and perhaps I'd had a small tipple or two maybe!

I'll dig some more out for you to have a laugh at in the future!

My daily outfit posts are adequately covered by Marks & Spencers' online knitwear catalogue!

Fab pics! ;D

Dee La Beau said...

That dancing photo is absolutely gorgeous! Everyone has a better smile after a couple of tipples too :)

I never have anyone to take pics of me when I get dolled up, my husband manages to make me look ridiculous.

Straight Talking Mama! said...

Helen - my daily outfit posts wouldn't be any better!

Dee - Thanks! Me neither my husband is terrible at taking pics.

Hey great to see that shot of you and "Hubby" dancing again! (Dover Street?) First saw it with a bunch of other shots of Gordon's that Eddie Hope had. It'd be fantastic to see them all again so please do put them up. 18 years ago...

Straight Talking Mama! said...

Thanks! No it was a club of Nino's just off Carnaby Street, totally can't remember the name of it now! It's not one of Gordons either can you believe, it's a photographer who hung around the scene for a short while & took some great shots, yeah I will put the other up at one time! And hey reveal your real identity, I can see your face ;o)

Straight Talking Mama! said...

Sorry I meant CAN'T see your face ha ha

Reg Varney said...

After I commented the old grey matter started to grind and I thought that it wasn't in those photos but from a magazine feature? Something like City Limits or a Sunday Colour Mag? My poor old brain! Wasn't there a shot of you two sitting by a radio gram, Paul in a chalk stripe suit?

Straight Talking Mama! said...

wow well remember yeah it was a Sunday colour mag I think & good memory yes a pic of us next to a radiogram, will do a blog post on them all one day!
