Quick post in between chores - no rest for the wicked, as they say!
Our local hotel, run by a very fashionable young-ish couple (remember the gumboot/fairy lady from our bike ride?) is running a little "do" for Melbourne Cup - nothing too flash or big, but still a nice get together of locals. And of course, being quite a few girly girls amongst us, we have to dress up.
My question is this, ladies, as with your scrapbooking eye for colour - is this TOO much of a good thing?
I am not normally a skirt person, but loved this a line white and purple number (not normally one for purple either!). I found a simple little sleeveless (bugger the fat arms, its HOT!) cotton tshirt, and then on ebay - a purple fascinator AND shoes! (love the shoes, cute little flats, just what I needed to wear with jeans etc)
Obviously, they are all slightly different shades of purple, but when on, they are far enough apart not to notice. BUT, is it all too much? Perhaps not the purple T, but a white one instead? Or loose the fascinator? Or save the skirt for another occasion and go back to my old favourites, the white linen pants?
Oh, the descisions that I have to make! Lordy, hopefully this will be the biggest and most stressing decision I will have to make for awhile!
Oh wait. I forgot.
Root Canal or Extraction? Now there's a decision just lurking around, waiting to be made.
But until then - is too much purple too much of a good thing?
