Day 172/365: Done in Transit...

Me and my Ken Done gear are on the move. Now many of you know where I'm headed, but let's not spoil it for those who don't... just wait until you see my post tomorrow! In the meantime, we've got a layover in Cairns and it's the perfect time to do my post (seeing as we were up at 4.00 a.m. this fine morning!).

And the quality of today's shot may be an indication of things to come for the next wee while. Expect some randomness please as I settle into posting on the move, but also be assured there will be a new Ken Done each day!

So as we rushed from one place to another in the airport terminals, I was *delighted* to spot this Ken Done t-shirt rip-off, and just how fitting a moment it seemed for Ken Done Inspiration Friday. Now I know many people are going to recognise that Ken's own Kangaroo t-shirt (first worn Day 12/365) is distinctly like a kangaroo traffic sign, but the difference when Ken does it is he is paying homage to Australiana, whereas this t-shirt on the rack is just a rip-off of The Guru's designs! Do I have a favourite much?! :-)

And I hope you like my inspired travelling jeans... thank you Frankston op shops! Thank you the 1980s for making people believe patterned jeans were OK.
Fortunately for the poor quality of my own shot, I've got an absolute *gem* to share with you. Check out the *wonderful* photo of Bec below. She is showing off a pair of Ken Done shorts also gifted by The Man himself (but too small for me), and she was so inspired by Mia yesterday that she took this shot for me to post. Thank you Bec for such a Fun Friday Foto! xo
And pay close attention to the quality and pattern of the Done shorts, people. These are mint condition vintage 100% cotton shorts and will be up for auction in my eBay sales in early 2011. Exciting times!

My guess is that you are going to a country where multi-patterned outfits are a long standing tradition. I am so jealous!
