"Borrowing is not much better than borrowing; just as lending with interest is not much better than stealing." Doris Lessing
I have resorted to stealing. Well not stealing as such, I am not slinking my way into Victoria Square at night like a ninja to steal clothes. The clothes of my friends and family are a different story though. Take the last 3 days and my outfits. Apart from this neon green skirt, I haven't worn anything that was my own this week at all. I was up home visiting my granny who has broken both her arms. Having left my sunglasses at my mums house when I was up visiting my family the last night I was up, I popped to my mums to grab them. It was then, the idea presented itself to me. My mum and little sister are away currently in Italy for 3 weeks therefore leaving their wardrobes wide open for me to steal. Think of a pig rolling in (shit) mud. That was me in the middle of 2 wardrobes with stuff I hadn't worn before.
So this has helped calmed my nerves. Feels like new clothes but it isn't. This is usually the time of year when I spend loads on clothes. I don't know why, if it is because I always have a bit of cash after summer or if it is because I love the Fall collections more than any other season but this is the time of year I spent my most on clothes. It was this time last year when I spent so much that I was like....hold on a second, this is bad.
So stealing is now the new in thing to do. Even my friends wardrobes aren't safe. My bff Zoe let me borrow a skirt to head out one night and she forgot to take it the next day so I sneakily wore it to work.
Speaking of skirts, what skirt length should you wear to work????
I am wearing my neon tweed skirt today and as I was walking to work this morning, I felt my whole arse was on show. Have I gotten taller??? No. Have I washed the skirt at too high a temperature??? No. But all of a sudden it seems so short! I haven't bent to pick anything up all day as I know I will show my ass off. Recently, every single time I wear a skirt this seems to happen. Am I a slut and I haven't noticed until now? All my skirts seem so short!!! Is it my old age??? I feel like my boss has been watching my skirt line all day.
Due to the fact that I don't have a uniform per say, it is so hard to know what I can wear. What length of skirts are a big nono??? Anything above the knee??? Even if it is slightly above the knee? I have no idea.
