Yes, today is the day. I am going to a Fashion Camp and I will be holding a reading. Wow! Who would have told, meeting me at school time, that I would have become a fashion blogger, and one that read aloud in public?
Well, this is what I am going to do today.
So the questions are: what to wear? What to read?
Believe it or not, it’s been easier to answer to the first question than to the second one. I am dressing in my usual way. It’s a Fashion Camp, not a catwalk. And we are supposed to be working, to learn new clues, new ways of doing what we do. So I am wearing the same jeans by Calvin Klein and the same blue T-shirt by Zara I had a few days ago. I have chosen a different pair of shoes, and I’ll tell you why. I ordered these shoes when I was taking a Lindy Hop class. Lindy Hop is a beautiful dance, but I feel hopeless in the dancing department. I have tried, maybe not too hard, and then I just couldn’t do it. I loved the music, I loved to watch my teacher doing the figures, but the distance between what my body was capable of and the real dance was just too much and I quit. But I had bought a pair of shoes, I had actually ordered them. And they have just arrived! Luckily enough, they are perfect also outside the dance floor… do you agree?
I completed the outfit with my best of best soprabito.
As for the reading, it’s been quite difficult. I have to read aloud for 4 to 5 minutes, so the couple of pages I had to select have to be meaningful and complete in themselves. The theme is #Ilovereading and the audience it totally unknown to me… I am still undecided between the incipit of Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen and the one of I love shopping in Hollywood by Sophie Kinsella. I think I will throw a coin!
Have a nice saturday!
