Trouser wearing.

Ah the irony of choosing an outfit for a trendy (Shoreditch Trendy - as if there were any other kind), feminist art event...

I'm used to being pretty scruffy these days, I iron nothing and none of my jeans really fit so it's been leggings (and jeggings) mostly - they're so versatile and stretchy, their main virtue. So what to do? I never go to stuff like this, the last one I went to I was perilously in contrast to every other woman there, it's a minefield. I wouldn't normally care, I have a go-to dress (good with leggings and jeans and boots) but I wear it ALL THE TIME, and I always look fat in it if photographed, I know, I know but... Also my friend has organised it so want to make an effort to look like I made an effort y'know? After more effort than, politically, given the nature of the event I should have spent, I'm wearing a pair of my boyfriend's trousers and feel far more comfortable.
And have contrasted successfully with some appropriate red shoes!

Feminism in London Postcard Auction organised by artiste Sarah Maple

This will be most excellent, am very excited and somewhat overawed to be in such company.
Hopefully lots of money will be raised but perhaps more valuable is the raising of awareness, the gradual progress of such things into the mainstream norm. Please come along if you can! x
