The realm of fashion has always been somewhat of a mystery to me. It seems like one of those imaginary lands that people talk about in books. Putting together a cohesive outfit seems like such a monumental task, not only because of the multitude of colours and patterns out there, but because of the sheer cost of the individual pieces. Often when I go shopping, I would buy one item of clothing at a time, slowly adding to my wardrobe. The problem is that I would forget exactly what I already had, and so the new top or pants wouldn’t go, even though in my imagination they would.
Ive also got another issue – I’m a big girl. It’s tremendously difficult to find anything that is not sequined, beaded or created from a bed sheet. They all seem to be for big, sassy grannies who wear pencil skirts and high heels. I’m not a tracksuit-down-shop kinds girl, but I love feeling casual and comfortable and being a florist means that all these things are particularly important.
So in the event that I had enough spare cash to buy an entire outfit, I put together a collage of my most favorite Spring ‘Uniform’.
