Day 327/365: You know there's a *problem* when there's pliers and blood!

I'm at home, all alone, and I'm causing trouble - but in a *good* way of course!
Ken Done sunglasses x 2 (WKBD Collection), gifted earrings, Tatty Devine necklace, Ken Done sailboat made and donated by Fiona, American Apparel bodysuit, Ken Done vintage shorts (WKBD Collection), Fluevogs. Photo inspiration from Birdmonkey xo

So I'm running around the house with the LiP's 1980s music collection cranked up, as I organise items to go up on this round of the What Ken Be Done eBay charity sale! My Ken Done item today are these *totally rad* KD classic sunnies. Now, in the interests of being honest, the reason I've got the sunglasses double-up is because I haven't put my prescription in the glasses yet, so I'm not really wearing them to help me see... Still, this has been fun: Double-Done sunglasses, Double-Done sailboat fabric (shorts first worn here and t-shirt first worn here).

In fact, I got so excited about all the colours that I knew it was exactly the right time to share the latest donation from my dear nephew. Check out these great coloured laces (which come from Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation, so another *good* cause)... but better yet, please read this fantastic letter Oliver wrote me:
Favourite line: "I already have colours so I'm giving these laces to you." Classic! And clearly I'm going to have to intervene in Oliver's education to ensure he realises a person can never have enough colours! What a lovely gesture xo

... the only problem was as I was trying to get the laces into my first ever pair of Fluevogs (bought over 13 years ago!) I had to end up using pliers, and then I somehow cut myself in the process! What a gal will do for a *good* cause!!

What Ken Be Done? said...

Bec: Ah yes, sailboats. Now there's a *good* fashion idea ;-)

Birdmonkey: I reckon so too! I can't wait to be able to wear them properly too...damn you, bloody dodgy eyesight of mine! Although I guess that is also what allows me to wear glasses in the first place and I do love specs...

Anon: Brilliant! Ha, Ha.. I like this especially as I didn't even mean to line it up like that :-) Thank *goodness* for pun-masters around me!

Anon x 2: Fantastic! But I must admit, I'm a shoe-lace tie person who does the two loops then knots them together... so now I'm going to have to see how strong that is in comparison too... the learning just NEVER ends, does it?!

Doc: If by going out you mean letting the lucky people of my street see me do menial tasks like put out the trash etc., then yes! As I said, a bit of home-day being crazy...
