Private Parts, Pirate Parts and Purple

Recently I got myself all dressed up with nowhere to go, so I decided I had better go somewhere.  I took mum out for a coffee and a treat which is always a pleasant experience and makes me giggle to watch us sit across from each other at the table and make all the same gestures.  We will fold our hands in the same way at the same time and then suddenly switch to a new but identical position at the same time.  It's like a circus act though maybe not as entertaining to anyone else but us.

The weather is not at all summer-like though I suppose it is typically spring-like for this part of the world.  I decided to make it feel summery by wearing some tie-dye meets batik and of course purple makes me quite happy.  My hair, makes me less happy.  That's because on a whim I coloured it and I don't like it.  I wanted to play with making it a touch darker so  I bought temporary dye called espresso brown.  There was nothing remotely red looking about it but I have ended up with auburn hair.  Oh well.  It won't last.

Here is the fabulous purple tie-dye and auburn hair look, ready for going out.  It's not too auburn looking when it's not in direct light so now the photos are making a liar out of me.  It looks VERY auburn with a light shining on it.  When I picked mum up the first thing I said to her when she got into the car was "What colour is my hair?"  After giving me a funny look she said, "it's auburn." 


I had started the day like this pic below but when I decided to go out I thought I would match my shoes, belt and purse because now it is very OUT to do that and I like to be contrary.  Yes, I know I have cut off my head.  I think we have all had quite enough of my face for awhile.


This is the only sunshine around today...



Now, I know you came here for the private/pirate parts so I won't delay any longer.  This is my helpful tip of the day for those of you who are planning a red carpet appearance or even just a trip to the grocery store and have your heart set on a gorgeous but revealing dress like this one.

I'll bet you thought you would have to go commando!  Well I am here to assure you that no, you can protect your lady parts from, well, whatever they need protecting from.  What you need is this:

I decided not to enlarge this photo.  You're welcome.   The pirate patch for your private patch.   Clever crafty people could surely make one of their own and save a bundle!

That's it from me!  Amazing, right?  It's almost a short post.

    I think that might do more invading than protecting somehow!!

    1. I was just imagining how one's man might burst out laughing at it after one sexily disrobes but then I found out that they make a man version of it too.

  2. Well thanks so much! I've been looking for something like this patch, not! You would have to be pretty desperate to want to wear hip revealing clothes. I've seen the male version on a beach shot, as swimmers! Argh! Your tie die skirt it stunning, and cool and comfortable I imagine. I would love to see you and your Mum together. My Mum giggles to see me with my Dad for the same reason. And we thought we were unique! XO

    1. That's the second time Blogger has eaten my reply to you! Arrrghh! Well I said a bunch of really intelligent things you can be sure and I went on at length about how I am also like my dad. ;-)

  3. Let's start with the last...I mean, what's the point?!! The "patch" is hilarious and that silly little strip? No comment. Now, on to your outfit, I love your skirt. I have one that's similar and I love it in hot weather. Your comments about your mom also made me smile. I find myself making her expressions and gestures, much to my dismay, and then I see them in my daughter. It's quite a legacy. :-) XXOO

    1. Thanks for visiting, Jean! I can only imagine that if I were crazy enough to wear one of those things that I would constantly be wiggling or picking at it or doing something not remotely sexy or ladylike. I see my son saying and doing things that are just like me too. I don't point it out to him because what young man wants to be told he is just like his mum? He already gets told often that he looks like me.

  4. Pshhh, a leaf would have done a better job at covering, than that patch! :D
    The AUBURN hair is so AUBURN! :D It's auburn indeed and I like it! And I love your denim jacket, so vintagy!

    1. My mum has a fig tree in her garden and those leaves are enormous! It's not wonder Adam and Eve chose them. ;-) I was really trying to embrace the BROWNness of my BROWN hair. Oh well. LOL

      I had no idea my jacket is vintagey. I suppose buying it in the thrift shop should give me a clue. I just liked it.

  5. Loving the contrary all purple look and that skirt is gorgeous. The necklace is pretty special, too! You look fab, happy, confident and eye catching and I like the hair.
    Why didn't you share those red carpet photos yesterday? I might have won dressed like them! xxxxx

    1. Thank you Vix. Speaking of gorgeous, I forgot to say on your blog that your dress is gorgeous beyond words. I can't find enough ways to say how much I love it and how stunning you look in it.

  6. That "underwear" is absurd. It covers so little, for no reason, that we ought to just be bare and comfortable. The human body is nothing to be ashamed of.

    I like your outfit. Fun colors. The story about you and your mom mirroring each other's gestures is cute. Sadly for me, I tried doing that when I was a young child and was repeatedly chastised. My instinctual efforts to adopt feminine gestures were a subject of great concern, attention and punishment.

    1. I'm so sorry you had to feel that kind of rejections. In those days even the most tolerant of parents would have feared that if their child exhibited such behaviour he would be rejected by and hurt by society. Even when it isn't involving any aspect of our sexuality, to have something of our true selves rejected and disliked by our parents is really hurtful.
      I have gestures that are like my dad's too. In fact I am just as much like him as I am like my mum. My son has plenty which are like me. It does fascinate me how that sort of thing happens in families.

  8. Ow! sitting carefully would be essential in that thing, I wouldn't want a mis-hap in that, A&E have enough to deal with ha! my nephew (who is 5) and my Dad are eerily similar, it's like time travel or a weird parallel universe if one walks out the room and another walks in - love your tie dye btw! x x x

    1. You don't sit down when you are wearing a gown like that! You stand and walk about so everyone can admire you.

      That's so cute about your nephew and your dad. Five seconds after my son was born I looked at him and saw my father in law. LOL

  9. OMG My first concern is of course how does that thing "stick" to you? And would it be like ripping a bandaid off when you want to take it off? You had better have done a whole lot of personal grooming beforehand. What happens if you have to go to the bathroom??? Do you have to use a new one? Also what is with the butt floss?

    As you can see...it is making my mind explode.

    I will be thinking about that all weekend now. Thanks. ; )

    Love the purple outfit BTW. So pretty in a hippie chic kinda way.

    bisous

    3. Thank you, and Yes, I agree with you. I think they would be prettier without showing all that skin.

  10. What Suzanne said about that strange contraption...
    You look lovely in purple/lilac and tie dye. I think auburn hair and purple are a fabulous combination - but then I would, wouldn't I?! xxx

    1. I think auburn hair is lovely, but I didn't want to look as though I'd started hanging out with a bunch of gorgeous red heads and then run out and copied them. I was intending to embrace the brown. LOL Oh well. If I must copy anyone I couldn't have chosen better.

  11. that skirt is fab!
    purple is really your color - dyed hair or not. thanx it´s not permanent.
    the pirate thingy is stupid. if i would wear such naked dress - 20 years younger o.c. - i would go sans underwear. much more comfort ;-P

  12. That's such a funny underwear. :)

    Your outfit was perfect - it's so you! Good on you for calling your Mum to go out for coffee. I will have to remember that trick when I am dressed up and want to go out... oh wait, my mom is in Siberia!!!! :)

    I know exactly what you mean about those gestures which almost become our second nature, and sometimes it's impossible to say who initially copied whose! We take so much of each other's little gestures, facial and word expressions when we live with somebody long enough, or even just from friends... I notice such little things too, and they make me smile. :)

    Hugses! xxxxxxx

    1. I think some of these similar gestures are quite ingrained in us, they are there due to the way we are put together-muscles, ligaments, bones, and those are things we inherit. Mum and I often say the same things and my son uses expressions I use too. I would imagine those are learned but who knows! The brain is a fascinating thing.
      xoxoxoxoxo Hugses back to you!

  15. Nice to be back. With temporary dye you never know what color you will end up and this happens everytime. Thanks for sharing the info about the patch. You never know when it will be handy. Oh those gestures we share with our family. The y make us belong and I find it so sweet and reassuring!

  17. You look very pretty in your purple tie die skirt ... I LOVE the necklace and that it brought some sunshine to your day. It is interesting how we are so like our parents ... although I really don't like it when I say something and I hear my mother come right out my mouth!!! LOL!!!

    As for the pirate patch ... there is no ways that I would ever fit into or want to wear one of those dresses so I certainly wont be going looking for a patch!!! LOL!!! Interesting thought that they are around!
