And how would I describe my style? ..............[cue. sfx: crickets chirping]............Dude. Stumped.
I really don't know how to describe my style. Like my music taste and people tolerance (hehe), it's mood dependant.
However... last year, my fabulous blogger friend Tanvivacious wrote this about me in her post about other bloggers styles;
"Her style is not for the faint-hearted. She wears her attitude and never confines herself to trends and/or the 'in' thing. ......
...What makes it stand out is how Dusk wears and layers it all. She can wear a poncho as a skirt [like in the above picture] and make it look from right-off-the-ramp-stuff! She would be the person whom you would wanna follow if you are into experimenting and individual fashion!"
Wow. I was blown away, chuffed, floored by that! Such a generous description and so right! The "layers" part. I do dress in layers. Particularly in winter.
Now the actual "(like in the above picture)" image Tanvi was referring to was from this post! And it was all just serendipitous? coincidental? cool? that I'm wearing the same poncho-as-skirt! And ear-muffs that could look like this and a star ring... so, you know?
Totally Princess Layer.
So... do you know how to describe your style? Tell me!

How was your weekend?I had a lovely one, on Saturday I met a friend for a 4hr brunch, shopped some sales (eek! but mostly op-shop ones...but something new too, I love all these End of Winter sales at the start of Winter...), got photographed, pondered lifes layers then spent the evening with my darlings.
2 long-sleeved scoop neck tops * 2, yes 2, pairs of high denier opaque tights * really deliciously cozy socks * vintage poncho as skirt * hooded pleather jacket * patent leather wedge boots * ear mufffs * pointy frame sunnies * other stuff * probably the kitchen sink too
I really do layer up in winter, many thin layers to 'trap' heat, a skiing trick. I hate being cold, I would much rather be a hot... I thrive in hot weather. Strange then, that for the last 2 months I have been having cold showers. Not just lukewarm or cold. Freezing cold showers. No matter if I say "no, not today, I want to burn baby burn". My hand turns the tap to cold. Everytime.
Yes it's winter here. And I am addicted to cold showers.
...I will share why in another post...
This is me today. Boooooyawnringgggg.
We didn't do much, had a late lesiurely breakfast then off to watch my youngest's Rugby match (my husband coaches the team too) then back home... so pretty much wore what I would wear at home on a slow day.
I don't think I have ever shared my love of Rugby Union here. I am a mad, crazy Rugby fan.
I was also a Rugby journalist and once had a very popular Rugby blog.
I have been brought up with Rugby, the countries I lived in, my father's love for Rugby and boxing, I just love the game!
(My children all play, my husband was a first grade player and now he coaches and in my dreams I want to be a Wallaby...)
This is a classic pose of frustration. No need to pretend today.
