Sydney, 29 March 2011
The unnecessary absence of the blogger Baxter Shilling has been explained.
"Basically I'm just busy and really disorganised," Baxter announced today. "I kept meaning to blog but got stuck in the office, then I had to unload the dishwasher, then I couldn't decide what to wear for nearly four hours .... I'm just really vague sometimes."
Baxter's failure to blog was masked somewhat by good intentions.
"I thought about blogging," she muttered with a sad face. "I mean, I thought about it A LOT. And I took lots of pictures on the weekend at the Rozelle markets.
Baxter was less enthused in response to the clothes she wore to the office this week.
"I thought I nailed it on Monday," she confessed, "what with the Prada skirt, the Zara blouse and J Crew cardigan. The colours were great."
Baxter confirmed that she bough the citrine crystals in New York while the garnet stick pin was a op shop find.
Tuesday was only slightly better.
"I do love a black suit. It's comfortable and doesn't distract you when you're glued to desk all day writing reports.
"This one is a mix of Jigsaw trousers, a Max Mara jacket - remember the one I got in an op-shop? Well, that one - and a thrifted woollen vest and a thrifted T.M Lewin shirt." When asked about the untucked shirt Baxter was repentant. "I should have tucked the shirt in. It's always difficult for me to remember anything I do or thiink before 10 am but I'm fairly certain I was having what experts call a Jack Kerouac moment."
