Hi Sweethearts!
Thank you all for your love,
I have been round to each one of you to thank you and enjoy your fab blogs!
For me, life is all about seing the possibilities!
A chance meeting can bring a new best friend.
A no or a yes can bring a lesson in life.
Not being where I want to be can bring pride when I acheive a goal.
Taking what seems like a wrong turn can bring something into my life that I didn`t know I needed.
Not having the money to shop as much as I like can mean that a fab cushion with newspaper-print might get a new life as a bolero.
Being bored can bring new ideas.
Feeling lonely can make me brave.
Being late in the morning can provide a tad of exercise running for the bus.
Not having regrets can mean self acceptance.
Having wrinkles means I can count all my smiles.
Having a big bum can mean that I have more to shake when dancing.
Realizing that being fat I really can not hide can mean that I might as well dress in spots.
In short, I seldom see problems, I just maybe haven`t found the solutions yet.
That attitude is what has gotten me into this outfit with spots all over the girls LOL
This is one of those outfits where I am wearing stuff that came from seeing the possibilites and not the limitations:
A miniskirt that I can only get around one thigh has become a much loved scarf (H&M).
Not having any black material meant that a coat became a skirt (coat and top, H&M).
Needing somthing green for a top but being broke had me crafting a bolero (Fabric from H&M-dress).
Being in denial about living in a country where I need practical shoes for fall helped me welcome my leopard booties (Nilson)

Tell me, what are your take on the possibilites in life and in fashion?

xxx Anika

OMG Anika, I so loved this post! Inspiring, creative, resourceful! The minute I finished reading it I was brainstorming to see what "too little" clothes I own, God knows there must be a closet full, that I could convert into something else! You've started a revolution, woman! :)
