What I didn't wear today

Today, I came across an article about Poppy Dinsey's blog, which is a photographic record of the outfits she wears every day and is called, unsurprisingly,  What I wore today. Apparently, she started it as part of a 
mission to  wear a different outfit every day and make use of all the many clothes in her wardrobe. Due to its huge success, she is now going to transform it into an 'entire social network for fashion fans to rival Facebook'.
So, ever alert to the possibilities of fame and fortune, I thought I might do my own take on the idea and share with  my millions of readers out there in the ether what I didn't wear.



Today, readers, I was mainly not wearing this, owing to the sun having disappeared and leaving us with thick, grey, dull cloud.
See, my blog even gives you an update on the weather as an added extra!
You don't think it will catch on, do you? Be honest, I can take it...

  1. You look like a spy from the Eastern bloc! Using Poppy Dinsey's idea, I may start a new blog in which each day I pose in my underpants. Some have holes in them and some are over twenty years old. I hate to admit it but one pair is even pink! I think I could become a style icon.
    WORD VERIFICATION is skinsup!!!

  2. What a brilliant idea, YP. You really have to do it! You could have a following of millions in no time. However, the thought of 20 year old underpants is a step too far for me. That's even worse than Keith's sartorial standards. :)

  3. It seems to be a talking point on the news this morning and how the youth of today need to let everyone know what they are up to all the time.
    I can't imagine why anyone would want to see what I am wearing today. An old T shirt and a pair of 5 year old jogging bottoms to clear out the garden shed!.

  4. I see you and I are on a par as regards our sartorial elegance, then, Rosie. ;)Only I'll be clearing out the shed tomorrow.

  5. I think less Eastern bloc spy, more our woman in Havana. But you could be on to something. How about a website called "Inappropriate Clothing for the Weather"? Like a sunhat in a British summer or flip-flops in December. And YP could be your Inappropriate Underwear style guru.

  6. Sounds good to me, SP and you could build the website for us. :)
