....or alternative title The Dingle Dangle Stainathon
Have you bought into the dangle tassel earrings trend? At Mutton age it wasn't a trend I was comfortable with for me, that is until my Mr Him spotted these babies on vacation.
Bigger, bolder yet for some reason that we can't name we both thought would be more age appropriate. Does any expert fashionista reading this know why? Maybe because they are soooo dingle dangle that I would only wear them for a dingle dangle type event so wouldn't appear as garish as they would in the day to day.
The dingle dangle event I wore them to recently was a curry with friends, with a sneaky predrink in Waitrose Winebar, above. I'm going for a curry every 2 months on the night before a braces change. This is not to punish the orthodontist, no really it's not...despite the pain he causes me. It's because turmeric and various spices stain the plastic bits. These get changed on my visit so on the night before I dive into my once in 2 months full on stainathon.
For this 'dangle dangle stainathon' I chose a tunic top with similar colouring to the dingle dangles. This blouse also had decor around the neckline so there was no need for a necklace, which also suited the dingle dangles. The blouse is 4 years old and unworn to date. Honestly I don't know why. I need a belt on these jeans and as I was doing a front tuck I decided to use a red belt. The alternative would have been black but I was in a sassy mood. I blame it on the dingle dangles.
My jacket was my good old faithful black pleather moto and I added skinny black jeans. the jacket is shorter than the tunic top. One way that I accommodate this is by front tucking the tunic into my trousers and developing a modern rounded shape to the rear of the top. I like this shape hanging below the short jacket.
|I call this stance 'The go away paparazzi'|
On my feet I wore bling in my gold metallic Dune backless loafers.
We had a great night with our friends. They read my other blog, my Anna Muttonyears one and so knew all of our holiday news. They had a question and answer session with us having read the material and watched the videos. Here if you are interested.
Back to the curry. It wouldn't be right not to let the tablecloth join in a stainathon. Can you imagine that on my teeth for a few months!
