So yes, Item told us last night that hse had to wear 'bright clothes' for Children In Need. In fact, the message was a bit lost in translation, as I realised as we walked to school and saw everyone else in fluorescent clothing - but never mind, Item was undaunted and she was just as blinding to the eye.
She pretty much put her outfit together this morning today, by choosing everything bright; she wanted to wear the big pink and blue piece of cloth as a cape but I thought it looked brilliant as a scarf.
Mine was not a particularly successful outfit today, but I did get to wear a pair of shoes that have been consigned to the cupboard for too long as they are rather tight. They're these silver-toed brogues. I think they look best with trousers, actually.
Havng said that Noa Noa clothes don't fit me, here I am in a silky bottle-green skirt of theirs, size 14, but it has become very tight around the waistband towards the end of the day.
The scarf is a White Stuff one featuring cats and dogs and the words 'meow', 'mew', 'woof', etc. I'm not that keen on the colour but I love the graphic design.
