A FEW MINUTES OF HOUSEWIVERY

(I know what you're thinking. You're thinking you can almost hear this outfit scream "Clog sandals! Leave the pumps, go clog sandals"! Matching the bag. Oh yes.)

(Meow meow all the time meowing...)

This is what I was wearing the few hours that I played housewife today (actually, also the few hours I was able to wear something other than work wear). I've gone housewife (for those few hours) all week, as Eddi has been coming over for lunch every day; he works just around the corner. I've been putting on a dress (and lipstick, of course), biking to the store to pick up something nice and then back to prepare a great lunch. And just when everything starts feeling all ladi-dadi-da and nice I have to drag my behind to work. Damn. Off with the dress, on with the gear. But then again, I couldn't buy all the important and useful stuff I get all the time without my work now could I, as burlesque doesn't really make me rich. (Yet.)


Dress, perfect for hot and humid days - vintage from Q's daydream
Bag - bought at a bazaar in Tunisia some ten years ago

Looking lovely. I loved maternity leave also from the point of view so I was able to be all house wifey. Now, i'm so tired from work on my days off that it's very little I can be bothered with :(

a very stylish housewife you make! I'm so glad I can wear almost anything I want at work, especially on these warm sunny days it must be such a pity to put on the gear!

FABULOUS! FABULOUS! FABULOUS! You look so Donna Reed, brings back memories I'd rather speak of (wow, I actually remember watching The Donna Reed Show).

Bravo, my dear.

Playing housewife is fun sometimes, I think! I really love that leopard scarf in your hair. And your red lipstick. And this whole look, really :)

You find the best vintage dresses. I feel like everything is so picked over in New York and I can never find anything in my size. I need to take a trip to Europe with the specific goal of shopping!

Britt : oh you should, I'm sure you would find a lot! But this dress however, is from the US :) Via etsy.

I agree with the comment above, you really are the prettiest woman in the world, I saw you on tv a while ago, and I wondered " How can someone look that cute"? Like a doll!
