Elastic Fantastic



Today I am participating in Kelly's inaugural wardrobe Wednesday at Kiwi Women's Style.  Today's challenge is fragrance and what can be more fragrant than roses.  These particular ones are Iceberg.  I have these in standard form enmasse softening the brickwork at the front and side of my house.  I love to pick them and bring them inside.  They smell gorgeous.  Today is supposed to be around 26 degrees Celsius so I have chosen my favourite maxi as my dress of choice.  I am wearing it with black leather flat sandals by Clark's, a paua pendant and large green ring I picked up at the local junk shop, you know those $1-$10 shops they have popped up everywhere!  Oh and you might have noticed, my lack of hair.  I was feeling a little rash last week when visiting my hairdressers and had it all cut off.  It is not the first time I have done this.  I change my hairstyle quite regularly!  I must admit short hair has advantages in the heat but, I did manage to get my neck burnt on the weekend.



In case you were wondering what this has to do with elastic, well absolutely nothing, but I can report an update on the elastic situation.  I have samples!!!!  Cordall, who manufacture the stuff in New Zealand sent me a sample chart.  The stuff from what I can tell seems to be of reasonable quality and it is cheap $0.35 per metre.  I have put up contact details above for anyone who is interested.


Now while I was on my elastic bender, I bought this stuff on Trademe.  Someone was cleaning out their stash and I scored over 400m for $35.00.  I don't think I will be needing more of these colours ever!
