On Sunday, despite being father's day, Jay wanted to spoil me (after Philip showered him with homemade gifts and I made one of his favourite meals for brunch) so off we went to one of my favourite stores: Diabolik. I ended up buying two t-shirts and a cardigan. You will see them here, eventually. Yes, I know, I bought a sweater in the middle of a summer heat wave but I couldn't resist! It has bats on it! I brought Philip with me and he was completely smitten by the girl working there! He also picked out my clothes. Yes, he is 5 and has an opinion and is my very own fashion consultant! He chose this shirt because he likes Sleepy Hollow. Correction, he likes the Scooby Doo version of Sleepy Hollow and thinks the headless horseman is really cool. I must admit, the kid has good taste! I love the pumpkins and the frame around the image on this shirt!
The shirt is by Restyle, a European brand that I love but won't order online from. The prices are great but the shipping is astronomical so it is nice that Diabolik carries this brand. I also got my Restyle skull rib cage purse from the same store.
Here are some pictures of me. Look! I am melting! I feel like a plain black outfit today would be uninspiring.It also can be difficult to keep cool in this type of weather when you dress all in black so the image on the shirt spruces it up a little.
I wore this to work and no one said anything about the shirt so I think it is ok for the office. I wasn't so sure this morning! The only comment I did receive was from a well-meaning conservative co-worker who commented on the length of my skirt. I do admit that it is rather short and this is something I would normally wear with leggings in the winter.
What do you say in these kind of situations? What can you reply? Do you just say thanks and walk away or admit to your wrong doings but then wouldn't that give the person added ammo to criticize the other things you wear? Well for me, in classic Sylvie style, I lifted my skirt up in order to reveal the shorts I was wearing underneath! I wish you could have seen the person's face! Ha!
