I got cat called. And I liked it!

How very un-PC. How very non-feminist of me.

Let me explain.

My husband is attracted to me, he thinks I’m beautiful no matter what. He even finds me sexy when I’m stark naked with no makeup or sexy underthings to enhance what I have. I’m comfortable in my own skin. Wrinkles, jiggles, dimples and all. If I was presented with the Dove doors I would choose beautiful, any day!

My usual work wardrobe consists of jeans and t-shirts, takkies (trainers) or slops and a hoodie if its cold.  My hair is usually in a pony or up in a bun and the most makeup I wear is mascara and usually I don’t even wear that.

Its comfortable and I’m all about comfort especially at work. I mean, I’m there for 9 hours a day!

Today I decided to jazz it up a bit.  I’m still wearing my jeans but today I’m wearing a fancy pinstripe sleeveless shirt and a pair of black kitten heals. My hair is still up in a bun but I’m wearing make up today, BB cream (yes, I’m late to the party) and mascara. I’m even wearing perfume. I left the house today feeling really happy about myself with an extra spring in my step.


The cat call happened when I was waiting to cross the street. I guy drove past and whistled and shouted good morning. He couldn’t tell I was wearing fancy clothes or make up (I was wearing my sunglasses) and definitely not the perfume. What he could tell is that I felt extra good about myself. I felt feminine and strong and gorgeous and confident.

When he whistled at me it made me smile. In fact it made me laugh out loud. I felt good. I felt beautiful. I felt stronger and more empowered as a women.

Not very PC of me but there you have it. I got cat called and I liked it!

What I Wore Today or WIWT

A dress. Kitten heel shoes. Mascara. I also had my hair cut yesterday so it looks all sleek and magazine perfect.

I cannot get over how many people have commented today.  Comments ranged from ‘You look fantastic!’ to ‘Ooohh hot date?’ to ‘But you only wear jeans?!’

I guess I have been in a bit of a rut.  But jeans are comfy and I can dress them up for work with smart and pretty tops.  Also, I don’t like wearing heels, I have terrible balance as it is so adding heels into the mix is a disaster waiting to happen!  As for make up and hair, I very seldom wear make up, my skin doesn’t handle it well and its a mission, same with hair, it takes so bloody long to make it look decent I usually just let it dry on its own and then tie it up.


I am going to try wearing dresses and skirts more often during the work week.

I am going to make an effort to at least wear my small kitten heels when I do wear dresses and skirts.

Mascara doesnt take that long to put on, so I will make an effort to wear it more often (and wash it off at night!)

As for my hair, the very talented {Beauty} at {Tanaz}, cut and styled my hair yesterday, she also thinned it out quite a bit and that should make it easier for me to dry and straighten it myself, so I will attempt to make my hair look nice and not tie it up as often as before.

Keeping my resolutions…

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

I try not to make resolutions as I tend to break them and then feel very disappointed with myself. As for 2010? I would like to be more adventurous, try more new things and push my boundaries a bit.

That was one of the questions in the 2009 in review meme i did.

I pretty much always go for the ‘safe’ option with clothes, I have a few ‘out there’ pieces but mostly plain  and basic colours.  Today I found a dress and a tunic top at Mr Price.  Below is me pushing my boundaries, trying new things and being more adventurous.
