Daily Prompt – 1950’s Pirate Chic?

What do I love wearing? – Response to Daily Prompt which was ‘Tell us all about your best confidence outfit. Don’t leave out the shoes or the perfect accessories.’
Wow. Well I love my heels. I have a favourite 4 inch-platform pair which are gooooorgeous – see below.

See, they are lovely… pretty pretty shoes.
A couple of years back in my twenies (late teens, super early twenties) I had the ability to run in such shoes, in snow. It was pretty awesome. I’ve always been co-ordinationally challenged however had the theory that in the big heels I had to concentrate on walking and so fell over less often. 99% of the time this proved to be the case. But that skill is sadly slipping away and I’ve exchanged my 4 inchs for well, currently some rather lovely flip flops. (I’m taking advantage that today IS the British summertime)
On the other end of the spectrum, I also love wearing bandanas. When I’m really focused on getting some words down and getting some writing done, I bandana up!

It’s so useful to keep my hair out of my face. When you’re bent over a manuscript wrestling with the dreaded comma, the last thing you want is an all-out battle with your hair (which I never win). I was first introduced to the wonders of a bandana as a Girl Scout Camp Counsellor in New Hampshire, one summer many years ago.
But back to the confidence…
The best outfit.
If I had to go out somewhere right now and be dressed to impress. I’d run home and change into a knee length dress. It was an absolute bargain and was perfect for what I was looking for at the time. It’s a deep blue with a pale purple detail. It fits beautifully and works well for evening wear or work wear. I love it.
So combine all three items together?
I guess I’ll end up as some kind of strange 1950’s housewife-looking-pirate. Arrr!
