From Old Maid To Alex Perry

I have been feeling quite the old maid recently, hence the floral shower hat. Forget floppy hats, shower hats are the way to go. If you want to be an old maid, that is. The solution....?

A bit of Alex Perry (Spring/Summer 11/12) lust will cure your old maid-ery ways as easy as reciting the a-b-c alphabet. A is for 'Allo Alex, B is for Beautiful Dresses, C is for Cat-like poses.

Sharp, sassy, colourful-sometimes not, fierce. Old maid, be gone! Alex Perry, the most glamorous fashion designer in Australia? I say yay. You say?

P.S. The Old Maid inspiration came from Sex & The City. Remember Charlotte feeling old in Atlantic City? Her solution was to put on a ehhhh, slinky dress. My solution is to dream about an Alex Perry design.

Haha, I love your shower cap. You're bringing Sexy Back!
I would love to even just try on one of those sassy color & drama dresses! Better yet, a place to wear one would be amazing. LOL, not too many events for a dress like that in my corner of Idaho. ;)

You are too funny! The old maid feeling comes to me every time I am tired... and when I have not gone for a run for a while.

Miy said...

hahaha..that shower cap sure put a nice humor in this post.. and dreaming about alex perry's design.. what a solution! When I get to that old maid mood, I'll jump straight in my skinniest jeans, tallest stiletto, cutest tank top and hit the mall.. and I'll suddenly feel modern again. But I like your solution better! Should try t one day.
