#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – Jan. 5th/17 – Spangly

Day 5 of Linda’s #JusJoJan challenge, and this time it’s hosted by Rosemary Carlson. Go check out her blog too, by clicking here!

Now for your prompt for January 5. It is brought to you by Judy of http://www.edwinasepisodes.com/. Your prompt is: “Spangly.” Use it any way you like. Make sure you stop by Judy’s website and say hello to her!

My in-laws came back from India last month, and as usual, they came with a selection of gifts, which usually include some sort of outfits. I have a cupboard groaning with clothes, as MIL tends to get a little overexcited when it comes to getting me clothes, even though she knows I hardly get a chance to wear these beautiful outfits!

The same goes for Lil Princess, but the worst thing is that she is a child, so she grows fast, and there a huge amount of gorgeous clothes she doesn’t even get to wear, and they are left to languish in the wardrobe, getting smaller and smaller

This time, I managed to convince MIL to only get me one thing, as we have a family wedding in February, and she bought just two outfits for Lil Princess.

It can be touch and go as to whether they are outfits to my liking, as I tend to wear more understated things, and sometimes MIL can find the most blingy things lovely! Hey, I am not averse to spangly outfits, they can look great on others. It’s just not quite my thing!

Below is the outfit she chose for me. It’s in a purple and biscuit colour, with gold thread work, and a few shiny stones thrown in too.  Not bad, eh!

So here is a little haiku dedicated to my spangly new outfit!


Pretty blingy clothes
All the way from India
Won’t miss me in this!

    Buying clothes for kids is always a losing proposition. Mom would take us to the store to buy clothes and by the time we got home we had outgrown them. That’s a pretty outfit, by the way, from what I can see of it.

      Thanks John!
      Buying kids clothes… bane of my life! My son is small. Waist like a toddler but taller obviously. Trousers are the hardest thing to find and belts are out of the question as he hates them!!!

    I’m sure the color suits you, and not too blingy. 🙂
