Okay, a warning: people are not Mr Robot's photographic speciality and I think he's usually a bit exasperated when I ask for an outfit photo, and I have never learned how to pose properly. However, I've just been to York for the weekend and thought I'd share a couple of Saturday's outfits, awful though the poses are.
How to repair torn armpits in a vintage dress) There's a lot I love about this dress, from the pattern to the look of the fabric to the crisp lines. The one thing I don't like is the waist. It's lower at the back than the front. This could be to do with my front - manufacturers tend to cut for a C-cup, not my ludicrous build - but it makes me feel as though I'm wearing a maternity dress. Although the dress came with its original belt, I'm tempted to replace it for everyday wear with a thicker one that covers both the dress's high-low waist and sits straight around my actual waist. You can see my favourite 1960s handbag on my arm in this shot.
I went to Burgh Island, but it was perfect for York. I'm wearing it with my Louis-heeled Hush Puppies for a 20s look, though you can't see those, and tried to tie my hair back to give the impression of a bob. A necklace seemed superfluous with a sporty sort of outfit. And see? Apples CAN wear 20s, in fact if you've got a rounded tummy like mine, a good dropped waist renders it invisible!
Anyway, nice photos not of me in my next post - I promise!
