Androgyny everywhere

I feel the love - I really do. Thank you for the get well messages everyone. I'm still feeling terrible, but at least the creative juices seem to be flowing again. House S4 is playing in the background, I've just had some awesome Beef Vindaloo and my cough and flu meds seem to be working. Perfect.

Anyway, I woke up this morning with body aches , a headache, sore throat and a blocked up nose. After dosing up with Panadol, caffeine and a bowl of Cocopops, I contemplated my wardrobe. You know those days when you can't decide what to wear? This wasn't one of those days. I knew exactly what I wanted - to dress up uber-put-together so I wouldn't collapse at work. If I could have, I would have stayed at home, with a huge pot of Chai tea and the TV remote. Daytime soap repeats galore. But of course, this was the one Monday I couldn't miss (experiments to be set up) and the coldest Melbourne Monday yet. So I picked out my best 'this-will-bolster-me' outfit.

Looking at my outfit today, I realised that I was channelling a bit of this seasons androgyny trend. Admittedly, it doesn't look as good on my 5ft 3 frame as on a super tall model.

This seasons tuxedo trend also ties in with this, a simple blazer with pared down clean black lines. Such a fun trend for winter. I might use this in more outfits over the next few weeks.

Have a good week everyone :)

You need better lighting for your photos. And omg... there's a bird outside the window attacking its image.

Boy do you I feel you about being 5' 3", i'm an inch shorter than you! HAHA

Anyhow, thank God for otc drugs, eh? I don't know how I would live with my fevers and cramps without Tylenol and Aleve in my life. I'd just be a mess.

Thank you for the comment! In all honesty, I know I'm not fat, but I'm not skinny either; I would classify myself as a little on the chubby side, but that's okay, I'm learning to work with it these days. I love food too much to give it up completely like I used to in college! :)

In fact I'm going to give the coco pops a crack I haven't eaten so much concentrated suga in one hit for years.
