Happy Shorts - Madness or Genius?
I had a great weekend, I went to an 80's themed Roller Disco. But now I have a terrible secret, and a dilemma I need help with. You see, I have fallen in love.
When I saw them in amongst the crowd I was captivated, so bright! so right! but Oh, so wrong.
I'm talking about the shorts. At first I thought they were sooo hideous. They have lots of bright colours all woven together in checkers. They have a waistband that sits on my ACTUAL waist, which means they also have a fly thats 25cm long. They have gathers in the front, and capacious pockets that can fit your hands, plus a first aid kit, a hat AND a handbag.
But every time I look at them I can't help thinking "What lovely happy colours!" "What fluid drape and handle!" "What useful pockets!"
So I was thinking. Maybe if I lowered the waist band and removed the gathers, and either left them as shorts, or made them into a skirt? In summer, accessorized with a white tank and sandals?
Am I a genius, or have I just gone mad?
My days have a bit of screaming, a bit of cooking, a bit of crafting, a ^*@# load of dishes and sometimes a dash of rollerskating!
I am SCREAMSTRESS, and I live in a usually messy and always noisy house with my husband the Panda, and my three spawn, 5yr old Big S, and 3yr old twins, Little S and Spawnette. Oh, and I couldn't stay sane without the help of my trusty sidekick THE WHITE CLOUD (mum).
