(More) What I Wore Today

Carmen Wing - What I Wore Today Journal page - Sketchbook. Watercolours & Copics
Hi all, thought I'd bombard you with more "What I Wore Today" If nothing else it's getting me practising and doing my 10 minutes of creativity a day. It's quite relaxing actually. So far I'm learning that I'm rubbish at colouring in, I wear at least one item of mens clothing a day and my hair has a life of it's own. You may start to see repetition now as I have basically shown you my wardrobe. The stuff that fits at least - I refuse to buy any more clothes in this size so am on a rotation. Hopefully I'll be in my nicer stuff pretty soon or I'll just be able to keep re-posting these pictures!

Do let me know if these pictures are boring you, I wont stop posting them - I'll just stick my tongue out and go "ner, ner, nerner, ner" as I'm hitting 'post.'

Hope your week is going well, thanks for stopping by.

Editing to add this for Brandy :)

Craig got these for my Christmas present, years and years ago. They came from the US and it is the one and only time we have been stung by customs. By the time they had finished with us the boots rocked out at near enough £100 all told. Gutting thing was... turned them over and they have Made in the UK stamped into the bottom! Haha! Easily my most expensive clothing item ever, by a mile. But I love them to bits, reckon I'll be dust in the ether and they'll still be going strong. I'll still be stomping around in them when I'm pushing a zimmer frame.

  3. I love your "what I wore" entries. That book looks pretty fun and I think I'll scope it out next time I'm near the store. I'm a bit envious of the cobweb shoes. I'd love to see a picture of them.

    2. OK, now I'm having serious envy! Those are so cool! (and had to laugh at your customs story...seems like we have the same kind of luck!) Wonder if they still make them. I might be prowling the internet in search.

      I have a beautiful pair of oxblood ruboff UG steel caps that I've had for a good 15 years, maybe more, still as good as new. Best boots in the world.

  6. not bored either :)

    I love your mini Carmens, they are fab!

    but I wish Craig had called me before he shipped those boots over as I could have told them where to get them in London...

    not that he knew me then to call me....not that he knows me now lol

    but I could have saved y'all a fortune!

  7. OMG! That is too funny about the boots. They certainly traveled some miles back and forth. Your drawings are nice. I dress the same way.

  9. Wow I didn't know boots could have such a carbon footprint - mahoosive - I think you should doctor your paintings to show your carbon footprint boots LOL! I llllllllloooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeee your paintings of you - absolutely fantastic - please don't stop and I don't mind at all the rotation around of the items. I soooooooooo know what you mean I have the same wardrobe that I wear week in week out - maybe I should start to think about doing something about it LOL. Hugs

  10. How is this the first time I have seen these drawings???? They are ace Carmen! You are very artistic. Love the boots.

  11. :D loving it! I think there are more or less 2 kinds of clothes people in the world, those who love to buy and wear as much as possible and those of us who mourn a beloved pair of trousers or shoes/jumper etc when we have worn them to their grave :( I have taken to buying 2 pairs of trousers if I really like them so I can make the experience last a bit longer (oh and not lose weight because the belgian guy who came up with BMI is as annoying as all the graphs that tell us how heavy we are allowed to be or what colour our poo has to be to be right (it is poo it is waste product we don't need). Ok getting down off soap box and finding something else to do........

  13. LOL - I've took the same line as you - no more clothes til I get the weight off! Only trouble is mine are now rags, so I've had to buy some!

    Love those boots - ouch at the customs charge!

  17. I LOBVE this idea!!! If I could draw AT ALL I would SO join you. Stick figures don't qualify I'm sure! The Sylvester sweater in your previous post- want one!!! Thanks for the encouragement in my crazed blog post! I genuinely worked it out with the person involved- I think. At least I'm ok with everything. :) Sometimes the best revenge is saying- "You're right."

    I could do with some diagrams...
