Retro Friday

Like many corporate offices, mine embraces the "Casual Friday" tradition.

There's nothing quite like rocking up to work in jeans and an old t-shirt. But casual shouldn't mean sloppy!

My special touch was this merle grey bonds t-shirt that I decorated myself with a fab retro iron on transfer from the 70's:

While I'm not exactly a Bulldogs fan (I'm actually a Tigers girl), I love the glitter outline, the slick print and the fact I took something new and gave it it's own retro look.

It just goes to show, even if you think you're not creative, there are a myriad of ways to incorporate your own personal style into what you wear. Sew old buttons onto fingerless mittens and jacket lapels, take that costume jewelery piece and turn it into your own custom brooch for your jeans, berets, scarves headbands. Tie that neckerchief around your belt loop or hair bun. There is no limit to your imagination - give it a try!

Oh I love the glitter detail on the tee too! You look wonderfully relaxed and casual.

The word verification thinks you look 'uncat' what does that mean I wonder?

Thank you Miss Red and DiamondsinChampagne!

Karen, I'm not sure, but my dog's nickname is 'Puppycat" (amongst others) so maybe she approves of the dog motif?
