I do not own many red clothes so when I came across this red dress with a white floral pattern in my size in my favourite charity shop last week, I just had to buy it. It cost me £4.50. It has a white belt feature which enhances my waist and is knee length - the length I always prefer.
It will make a change from my usual blue/turquoise outfits and will look good with a cream cardigan for cooler evenings.
Regular readers of my blog will know that I don't like jeans. I am probably the only woman in her late 30s who does not own and has never owned a pair of jeans. My daughter, Hannah, has recently been persuading me to start wearing jeans - and I have to admit a pair might be useful to wear around the garden - but I have something of an aversion to denim.
A few days ago, Hannah spotted a new pair in a charity shop and nagged me until I tried them on. She had her camera with her (I didn't know at the time) and took my picture in the changing cubicle.
They just didn't feel right on me somehow - too tight around my bottom which looks rather large in this picture - and restrictive. I decided not to buy them - Hannah was disappointed - but they were not comfortable.
Is there anyone else who shares my views on jeans or am I alone on this one?
