So, this one is a bit of a challenge. Five take is where Nicole, Rebecca, Claire ,Becky and I all take a theme or item of clothing and wear it in our own way. This week the theme was 60's. After a quick google and a small panic I worked out that one of my tunics might just work.
The 60's were more diverse fashion-wise than I had previously thought, but it many ways it was the Decade of the Legs. I have spent the last 37 years of my life not wearing anything that shows off my pins so perhaps it was good that I grew up in the Decade(s) of Jeans!
Here is my version of the look using commonly found household items, namely shoes I bought a while ago from a thrift shop, a Primark tunic (bought thinking it was going to be a dress but as you will see from the length it has been worn solely with skinny jeans), necklace from New Zealand and tights from Cette Dublin (the only ones I have found that fit!).
It's nice dressing up in something I wouldn't usually wear, but I must admit I wouldn't go out in this (as my husband said - if it bent over you could see my knickers!!!). So, I am being brave, but not that brave!
And yes, this is me wearing something else from Primark! What a cheapskate I am! But this top/dress/tunic was £10, and comparable ones from plus-size stores are three times the price. It's a size 20 (I'm not).
