Guardian Girl

Remarkable serendipity

Posted in Uncategorized by guardiangirl on November 19, 2012




I left home for my friend’s birthday party on Saturday night wearing a jungle-print two piece, a leopard-print bodysuit and silver stilettos. I had also added a very large parka and a prayer – a prayer that the gods would make it cold at the party so I wouldn’t have to take that parka off all night.

To my enormous astonishment, upon walking into the party I found myself surrounded by a jumbling great crush of sparkling headdresses, gold beaded leggings and wild jewellery. What on earth had I missed when I didn’t read the invitation properly (apart from the directions, which unfortunately meant I was many hours late after spending much of the evening walking round and round a nearby roundabout)? I had missed the dress code, which turned out to be “Totally tropical/getting lost in Pat Butcher’s wardrobe in the dark.” I was perfectly attired after all!

A remarkable act of serendipity and a warm welcome back to my favourite dressing-up game.

PS If you don’t know what a geoduck is, Google and enjoy.

    I’ve seen the trousers, I’ve seen the jacket… but I never thought you had the suit.
