Another day, another wrap dress…
I have this Baukjen dress in two colours: fuchsia and royal blue. I often buy my favourite clothes in many colours. OK, I confess: I often buy multiples of the exact same item, especially T-shirts, trousers, and sometimes even dresses… But I also have two wardrobes, in two countries. The brilliant idea behind this buying strategy is to have the same well-fitting, tried and tested basics in both of my homes. And it works, to some extent, except that my clothes never seem to stay in the wardrobe / country they were meant for…
And wrap dresses… I have accumulated quite a few. My excuse is that they travel well: you can just roll them up and toss them into a suitcase. No ironing required. Yes, I’m lazy… or busy, maybe both. Who cares, life’s too short for ironing.

I never wear boots as a fashion statement or an alternative to shoes. Given the choice, I would always choose simple pumps or flats even with a dress. However, that is not an option in cold winter weather. Enter boots: you can be warm and look stylish.
Finding good boots is not easy, though. Or maybe I just have unusually thick calves. On the other hand, I conducted a little survey among my friends, and either we all have unusually thick calves or most boots are made for stick insects. I’m inclined to think the latter is true.
What do you think?
PS: I kind of started another blog… I decided that Dilettante Artist needs her own space, http://dilettanteartist.blogspot.fi/, (just click the new, colourful image on the sidebar) where I will be posting (very infrequent) random pictures: illustration, photomanipulation, that sort of thing. Come and pay me a visit and let me know what you think!
