They recently went to a dress-up affair, P. wearing one of K's dresses. They hadn't been there long, when P. heard a rip and felt some air. The dress had split entirely up the back and in public, with P. wearing thong underwear underneath! P.'s significant other came to the rescue and stood close to her for as long as it took K. to go off in search of a t-shirt they could fashion into a skirt, as I did in this post last summer. P. shimmied into and their fun evening carried on, with VERY memorable photos to show for it afterwards. I will not share as the photos are NSFW!
The perils of dressing in clothing that does not fit!
I've been slow to post, having my fingers crossed that I would be accepted into the The Six Items Challenge, which is how I want to kick off the first 40 days of my third year of blogging. Rags published its first post July 7, 2010. The Six Items Challenge is an effort by Labour behind the Label to highlight the working conditions of garment workers in this fast-fashion world. Labour behind the Label is a UK based group that doesn't advocate boycotting brands as that alone can have a negative impact on workers, but it does encourage awareness and encourages slowed consumption, while "the pressure on workers and the constant precariousness of jobs and wage levels" is addressed.
The rules allow unlimited access to underwear, accessories and footwear. I see this as a great way to learn to make far better use of my extensive collection of accessories! And it will give me a chance to clean out my closet.
I won't beleaguer readers with daily photos of this campaign, but I do hope to do updates weekly. Wish me luck!
