Elegant Outfit For An English Winter, As A Result Of Watching Youtubers Give Style Advice.
Gosh, too many colours and choices. An outfit for the day…
I need to be warm, and to be able to run off at the drop of a hat (in case of murderers).
Eventually settled on = Grey Prince Of Wales checked trousers, cotton knitted beret, St Michael’s (1960’s Marks And Spencer) fine wool classic cardigan, brown leather boots, handmade red leather belt. Finally, have found a cosy and elegant look. Must show husband how nice I feel.
It wasn’t meant to be a costume but maybe it was. And I was meant to be pleased that I didn’t look like Norman. Right, must go and practice my pratfalls. Boink.
Postscript if you’re still reading this nonsense. Youtubers suggest LAYERING, which means putting a cardigan on.
Minimalists/French Style gurus suggest wearing only three colours. And not even colourful colours. They suggest ‘teaming’ grey with white (gasp!) and black (Swoon). And they get sponsored for this. Wish I’d thought of being a style youtuber, but I’d just sound sarcastic and I can hardly be arsed to do more than wash my face.
So. To conclude. Come and see my freshly washed face at Greater Manchester Fringe this July and also Machfest in May. Tickets just gone on sale. It’s my best show yet, I hope you like it. If you love me, I’ll see you there. It’ll be our Valentines gift to me and you.
That ensemble looks rather Katherine Hepburn/Garbo-ish, in the drawing anyway.
p.s. Please can we Londoners have some ‘W.o.E.’ shows, please!
(Accidental overuse of the word ‘please’ in the previous message :^\ )
Hello Alasdair, not sure if I replied or not but dates for London July 2021 are now on sale for The Hen And Chickens, it’s a double bill with Ben Moor. Here’s a link Double Bill of Wife On Earth And Who Here’s Lost?
