One Shirt. Three Ways.

This post and all proceeds raised is dedicated to Maria Claudia Lutz.

 

I have a mate. You might read her blog. Her name is Nikki Parkinson and she writes Styling You. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. She is all about embracing who you are right now, whatever age and size you just may happen to be. But there is one thing that I cannot understand.

How does she do it?

How does she look so great in every photo? And how does she manage to make her outfits shine?

We have been friends for many years, so yesterday I channelled my Inner Nikki, to bring you a style post of my own.

Today is Loud Shirt Day, something that I have been involved with for a decade now. It is the major fundraiser for The Shepherd Centre, which is the organisation which taught my son Jack to speak. So it’s kind of a big deal to me. Life-changing big deal in fact. I still visit the gang occasionally, and speak to new parents of deaf babies to tell them that things are going to be ok. So yeah, imma gonna hit you up for a donation, but not before I give you a very helpful blog post about being stylish.

AHEM

The first way I can help you style your loss shirt is to get active. In your ACTIVEWEAR. This particular shirt, well yes. I got it at LOWES. This photo speaks volumes. like LOUD. (PS You must understand how much I LOATHE putting photos of myself on the internet, so this is a big, big deal.)

PS. LORNA JANE THESE PANTS ARE FROM TARGET!

This shirt is 100% made from plastic and is probably not the best option for Huffy Puffy, but read on and you will see it is quite versatile…

IF YOU WANT TO LOOK LIKE A MAN FROM AN 80’S GLAM ROCK BOY BAND!

I think the less said about this the better. And yes. I am 43 years old and I don’t use botox.

And finally, do you remember when Nikki and I destroyed the internet back in 2012 when we wrote about THE CONDOM DRESS?  Well I dug it out of the back of the floordrobe to put together this look.

There are a few things that I should mention about this shot. One, we were losing light quickly and I had just abandoned a sexy boudoir shoot featuring said shirt because Horatio, who was taking the photos, was appalled and walked off the set. So I had to get his mate Ben to take these photos and he was ever so confused about what I was doing, but he said I looked nice so we will keep him. About a minute before this shoot took place, Horatio pegged a soccer ball at Ben while I was giving him instructions, and it hit me fair smack into my left boob. Also, I am only wearing one shoe because the dog took off with the other one, meaning that I had to hold onto the wall for balance. Elle McPherson never had to put up with this shit.

Also, I clashed patterns completely with the addition of the hat.

AND SO NOW IS THE TIME THAT I ADMIT THAT I AIN’T TO PROUD TO BEG. (SWEET DARLING)
