And you know what crazy sewers love? Joan Collins and Dolly Parton, of course. I mean, who doesn't love these ladies? They break all the rules of fashion:
|Or cleavage? Why not both!|
They don't know the meaning of casual:
|Dolly doing a spot of farming|
|THIS is how you wear denim!|
|I love how Dolly's hair struggles to fit in the shot.|
|Joan, just chillin' out at home|
I've decided to start off with a Joan-inspired piece - a gold lame pencil skirt made with fabric left over from my wedding dress. (One thing I've realised is that this is going to be really easy for me - I seem to have a very Joan and Dolly based wardobe without even realising it!). I whipped this up on my day off, using McCalls 9722. Then I cracked out the blusher, put on my biggest earrings, and decided to try it out doing a bit of light housework:
Doing the washing:
Bringing some glamour to cleaning the bathroom:
Some light dusting:
Time for lunch:
I even did a spot of knitting:
It was like living a little bit of Joan's life for one day - if she did housework and lived in a one bedroom apartment.
So be warned, this is just the first in a series of shiny, sparkly, fringey Joan and Dolly inspired outfits.
See you soon!
