Fashion lessons from childhood fiction

  1. Don’t be afraid of super high shoes. (Cruella de Vil)
  2. It’s not enough just to be pretty. (Jane Eyre)
  3. Well-tailored jackets and tiny Victorian-style boots go with everything. (Mary Poppins)
  4. There’s no shame in being different, bright jackets are awesome and you really need to stop judging people entirely by their clothing, even though judging people entirely by their clothing leads to completely accurate assumptions. Actually, every single item in your closet would look better surrounded by Parisian scenery... and judging people by their clothing is more accepted in Paris. (Madeline)

(And yes, this was written as procrastination/break in the middle of writing a six page feature article on South African education. Yay, feature writing exams again!)

And yay! Your procrastination gives me a procrastination tool too! I actually dreamed last night that I discovered a whole back-log of posts from SA that I hadn't read, it was wonderful. (But rather weird, as far as dreams go.)

Keep writing :)

Hanne - There IS a back-log of posts from SA, but they aren't published - or even necessarily written down. In your dream, you were literally reading my mind.
