The way we get by...

I'm having a dilemma. What do you wear if you have no idea what everyone else is wearing to a party. I often wonder what teenagers did in the olden days, when there were no phones and no Facebook. They must have just thrown on one of the few dresses that their mothers could afford and hope for the best. Mind you, with the variety of clothing available in Victorian times I wouldn't be surprised if they all ended up wearing exactly the same thing anyway. In a way they were much better off back then, they didn't have to worry about decisions like whether to wear heels or flats on a night out...they just didn't have nights out! I suppose it sounds silly to say that maybe it  would be better if it was still like that today. Pfffft! Who am I kidding? I need clothes and shoes and bags to function! They don't have to be expensive - my most used bag at the moment was from a charity shop and was only £2.50 - you just have to make sure that you have something that goes well with it and most of all make sure that you love whatever the item is. Still though, wouldn't it be soooo much easier just to wear a black bin bag for the rest of your life? That would save me from constantly having to pick up clothes from my bedroom floor and also having to rearrange my stash/pile. But hey, The Victorians didn't have Topshop now did they? Ha, who's laughing now?

Anyway, back to the matter in hand. Jeans or skirt, brogues or converse...tshirt or blouse?!!! Oh, somebody shoot me now.

  1. Hahah that's a funny post! You're right; it would be so much easier if there were less clothes and brands available! But on the other hand we would constantly wear the same things and get bored!

    What did you end up wearing to the party?

    Also, thank you for your nice comments on my blog!
