If only real life were as straightforward as virual life. I mean, this new toy of mine, Polyvore, allows one to pick out items from just about anywhere, some of them sold out already or one of a kind or... whatever!
All this is but a game thus far, of course. I don't own any of these items apart from the British passport and a set of miniature bottles/jars suitable for transporting toiletries in one's hand luggage. I do own an assortment of things that are at least vaguely similar, however. For example, the swimming costume (and you never can tell, there is a hugely slim change that we might opt to take a dip in our hotel swimming pool) is one of those very clever M&S jobs that works to make one's stomach look flatter than it really is. I bought one in kind of a leapard print pattern for a trip Gorgeous Husband and I were making to Bangkok the year before last, and I must say it helped me to feel quite remarkably glamorous all the while I was poolside. Realistically, I don't imagine it could be made to double up as a top to wear during the evening though, not even on a beach holiday; it's too difficult to wrap a skirt around without everything getting so bunched up it's uncomfortable. The trick really, as we all know, is to stick with a fairly limited, preferably neutral - i.e. black / tan / navy / your pick - colour palatte and only aim to liven things up with accessories.
Hi there. My name is Liz and at age 50 and after 20 years of shuffling to and fro between Singapore and the UK, I've learned a thing or two about what to wear and how to have fun wearing it.
