thongs and dressing up

    Recommended Posts

    Ah, flipflops (aka thongs) ... fabulous invention and I wear them all summer and then have to stuff my protesting feet into more traditional footwear for work etc

    I was amazed to see a 'dress code' note on a wedding invitation ... but then after I'd seen a few weddings I realised that sometimes you have to say exactly what you expect or you won't get it!

    The benefit of living in an oh-so-casual Oz is that you are always the smartest person in the office! Be careful though .... your inner slob might just get out!

    I went to a funeral and was the ONLY person in a tie and at 44 would have been the youngest in trousers, younger than me were wearing jeans and a couple came in work gear :eek:, even the older guests said they have a more relaxed dress code.

    The article seems a bit snobby, if they did steel toe capped ones , I`d wear them for work :biglaugh:;)

     

    I wouldn`t really ;)

    I went to a wedding a couple of months ago and the Bride was wearing thongs underneath her wedding dress!

     

    We went to a funeral last week and we were the only ones wearing black!

     

    Nobody really makes much effort over here when it comes to etiquette. That's Australia for you!

    I think the casual approach is quite refreshing myself,but then again,when I lived in Oz I did walk around like I had just returned from Woodstock!:biglaugh:Our local pub is quite snobby!I always feel like i have to get made up and dressed up to just go in for a drink!Nah give me casual anyday.Mind you,I think for a wedding or funeral you should make an exception!:cute:

    At my funeral no one is to wear black, it will not be sombre either, everyone is to have fun, they'll probably be happy anyway,
