I have an obsession with glamour, this is true. I try my best to introduce it into my daily life but it is so hard when my day to day job requires quite a bit of heavy lifting and dusty mess, and when my days off roll around, I'm so tired I just slum in pajamas and read magazines all day. Ho-hum. But when I do get a day to really spiff myself up, it is such a treat. The above photo was taken on a day when I decided to be a bit fancier for the workplace. However by the end of my shift my nice trousers were covered in dust and all sorts of fluff. But the scarf was still in tact ... needless to say I think it's important to find a balance of comfort and style. I know I can't wear heels and dainty stockings on the job, I'd wreck them - but I'm figuring out ways to add a bit of specialness.
