So, I’m alone again. I took my Mum back to her house in my rickety car today and it managed both ways without too much trouble. O’course now I’m home and it’s just me and my cat, I feel like I’ve gone deaf.
I was telling her on the journey about an unfortunate experience I had as a 17 year old. I was out with a friend and we met the remnants of a wedding party – all Scottish and in their finery – at a club. They were in high spirits and a middle aged man (ancient to me at that point) asked me to dance. I said no, absolutely not and his wife said ‘Oh please, it’d make his day’. So I gave in and went off with him to dance. I only danced opposite him, I wasn’t going for cheek to cheek stuff (although he tried), especially as he was about a foot shorter than me – and after a short while, everybody began to laugh. I realised why as soon as I looked down. The man was dressed in a kilt and it was obvious he was ‘traditionally dressed’ as a tent had appeared in the front. Everybody, including my friend was rolling around laughing, and I felt so embarrassed. I literally wanted to sink through the floor.
This is the curse of being a 5’10” woman, you rarely get eye-contact and sometimes you get a lot more than you had bargained for.

Loving this outfit today! Addams have made some really special stuff for this round of Uber. The LuLu Aviator Jacket comes with a choice of tops and a lot of options available within those choices. I’d recommend it as an adaptable and very usable purchase. The fatpack might be a good plan if you love wearing a jacket – the tops only work with the jacket I think, so come included as part of each pack.
The Addams Celina Leather Skirt is really cute, the leather look is fabby, and I love the colours. My Mum commented ‘it’s very short, I thought it was hotpants’ and I said ‘Not for SL’ 😀 It is short tho… ❤
I used some old faves to go with this new stuff. I’ve loved my ISON boots since I got them at C88 some months ago. [Z O O M] make some classy accessories and this watch is one I wear a lot, mainly because it’s fairly simple but still has a colour change HUD. You can see it blogged more fully here
Happy Shopping Guys (Girls)!
