For the last two weeks, my students have been bugging me to wear my Friday dress (or as they say it: “wear the Friday dress, Miss”).
I forgot about wearing it for the last two weeks, so I thought I better wear it for once.
Now, some of you may be wondering “what the heck is a Friday dress?”.
This isn’t just any dress, it’s what I called my ‘Friday Fried-egg’ dress. All for a good reason.
When I lived in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, I went to London for the weekend (to be honest, I spent most weekends in London because Clackers was quite dull). I went there with a vision in mind: Portobello Market (my fave). My goal: shopping.
I went to quite a few little shops and stalls around Portobello, and managed to find this amazing shop selling all sorts of dresses. This one caught my eye.
When I first saw it, I thought ‘hey! That is a cute dress with daisy’s on it!’.
When I wore it to school the next week, my student’s asked me:
“Why does your dress have fried-eggs on it?”.
And so it was born. The Fried-egg dress.
The Friday dress has served me well. I wore it travelling a lot, as it is comfortable and dressy. It is cool for hot weather and also looks good for winter too.
I wore it in Italy, England, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Australia.
It’s the perfectly perfect dress.
Coincidently, the above photo depicts the day before I ended up in Hospital in the Netherlands….always get travel insurance guys, it saves you from spending thousands of euros on health care should you need it! Thank God for travel insurance. Plus, this is what my hair used to look like (I stopped growing it out and got it cut in Utrecht, I got sick of bad hair days).
I don’t care if the pattern looks like fried-eggs. I wear it with confidence and pride!
