The Lenten Wardrobe

Hello & Welcome to a New Della who is coming to you fresh from The Blogger App for iPad. I have just this past moment installed it.
And what a wonderfully uncharacteristic moment of Power & Control I experienced when the tip of my quivering finger ever so gently pressed on "Install App", & it did it, as if by magic. But then again, I have a v. Low threshold of Magic Recognition as even operating a can opener has a kind of Magical Quality to me.
Anyway, I'm not sure how this entry is going to look on the blog. So, I'm anxious to hurry & finish it so I can go & look.
So, here's what I want to say:

It's only Day 2 of the Lenten Wardrobe Challenge & already I'm slightly tired of it.
You may recall that Us Challengers had to nominate 10 items of clothing that they/we are only to wear for the entire duration of Lent which sadly goes on for weeks & weeks. At the end of each week, you lose an item so by the end, you're down to 5 things.
Sounds pukey, doesn't it?
Why O why did I let myself be talked into it by my friend Trixie? What were we thinking?

For my 10 items , I have decided to go with a traditional Lenten Sackcloth & Ashes Theme.
I have selected 7 black dresses & 3 jackets, but I most probably won't get a chance to wear the jackets because it won't be cold enough.
This afternoon The Headmistress asked me if I was finding wearing only black depressing.
I nodded even though it was only the second day.
At least I can wear as much jewellery as I like without looking like I'm about to read someone's tea leaves.

I do like you in black but can't imagine you without something colorful for days.
