Be Our Guest: Heather Mac

It's been a while since our first Be Our Guest post with Miss Vicky Viola and we thought it was about time we invited someone else to be part of our Wardrobe Conversations. Heather Mac is Helen's wee sister. She was compelled to write a rather hilarious blog post in reaction to one of her favourite books getting the Hollywood treatment but hasn't blogged since. Until now that is! In an attempt to encourage her to get back into blogging we invited her to share her style and make fun of our blogger faces.....

Sometimes I think I’d quite like to be a blogger. Then I realise I don’t have the energy, the fashion sense, or in fact, anything interesting to say. I don’t really know why my sister has asked me to write this guest post. I imagine it’s probably because she thinks I’m totally amazing and secretly wishes she was as cool as me.

When it comes to clothes I’ve never really been terribly fashionable. I went from tracksuit bottoms and t-shirts to jeans and t-shirts to a short lived emo kid phase and back to jeans and t-shirts. I missed the class on being a proper girl that all the other girls got (seriously, when did that happen? I’m still waiting for someone to teach me how to put make up on) and I’d much rather be comfy than totter around in high heels. But I have to say that having a super fashionable sister like Helen, not to mention super fashionable honorary sister Kimberley, does rub off on you a little. I see how much fun my sister has with her clothes and how she uses them as an expression of herself and I like this use of fashion. So maybe I have started trying a little harder. While my staple outfit for work is still jeans and t-shirt (got to be comfy!) when I’m off I like to actually look in my wardrobe and try to put together new outfits. I’ve started thinking WWHD? (What Would Helen Do) and then I pick all the patterns and pretty jewellery. I’ve still got a long way to go before I could possibly be Super Blogger Extraordinaire but it’s a start.

When I shop I tend to choose Stuff with Things On. And these things tend to be Stuff What I Like. So rather than, ‘Oh this top will totes go with that skirt I have or this dress will really bring out my beautifulness’ it tends to be a case of, ‘this shirt has Batman on it and I like Batman therefore I need this shirt immediately!’ Which I think is a perfectly acceptable way to choose your clothes.

That’s why I got very excited when I spotted this jumper in a charity shop in Edinburgh. This jumper had space on it and I like space and therefore I needed this jumper immediately. I really didn’t think it was going to fit as it’s technically a Topshop size 8. All I can think is it was supposed to be the baggiest jumper in the history of the world as I am most definitely not a size 8! But it did and I bought it and the world was good. 

This brings me to another fashion problem I have. I have zero idea what goes with what. I’m not even kidding, if I’m going out I would much prefer someone to choose my outfit for me and I’ll just sit in the corner and drink wine until they tell me to get dressed. When I’m left to my own devices I tend to just fall back on straight up matching which is what I’ve done here. Space jumper is good so space jumper + space necklace is even gooder! I just really like space.

I have enjoyed pretending to be a super cool blogger like my sister. Thanks for letting me have a go and sorry I made so much fun of bloggers when we were taking the photos! And if you take anything away from my guest post let it be this. Space is really good.
