I've just discovered I'm too old to wear....

I was invited to a Survivor party, where we were required to dress as contestants on the tv show. I googled a few images of Elizabeth (as that's how long ago it was since I watched it) and came up with an idea of the attire....

I already knew I was too old for a midriff so opted for a boob tube buff that went all the way down to my waist....

However, I discovered a few other things I'm too old for:

1. Plaits. My partner opened with 'What's with the Pocahontas look?' I looked ridiculous.
2. Boob Tube. I have sadly discovered I have back fat. That's too depressing for further discussion.

On the plus side, I got to wear sneakers to a party and over-bronze my body (which was meant to be sunburn but everyone kept commenting on my tan....maybe I should do that more often?!)

The highlight, I got to smash a tile with a hammer...but my pent up aggression was commented on, so maybe there's an issue there I need to investigate.




You don't need to watch the clip, and rest assured I looked nothing like this.

Would you survive on Survivor? Who would you go as to a Survivor Party?

Linking with #IMustConfess as I really shouldn't have gone out in public dressed like that - and last night I noticed 3 people in the street wearing boob tubes, and all I could think of was how old and fat (on my back) I'd become - it was depressing...some things will haunt us in the most unexpected ways....

  1. LOL - sounds like fun! As a teenager I lived in boob tubes and lace up shorts! OMG - I don't even see lace-up shorts around these days! Somehow I don't think I could rock that look these days!! I so want to see a picture of you in your long boob tube, sneakers and bronzed body! I haven't watched Survivor in years!

  3. I was never comfortable wearing midriffs or boob tubes even when I was young and slender, let alone now. I know all about back fat. SO depressing. Have to admit, I don't quite get plaits on grown women. At this point in my life I'm over fancy dress parties. They were fine when I had nothing else to do besides plan what I was going to wear out on the weekend. Now it all just seems like to much effort. Glad you had fun, though.

  7. Ha ha my pent up anger would get me in trouble too! I think I could survive on survivor, I'm that bloody-minded!

  9. A survivor party sounds like fun. I'd never survive the swimming challenges, I am not a good swimmer! Besides that I would probably be a crying mess, or not be able to put up with annoying people and crack a massive bunta! A boob tube would probably look more like a tube skirt with my saggy boobs hahaha so not going there!

  10. That sounds like a bit of fun. Can't say I'd pull off a boob tube.

  11. Sounds like an interesting idea for a party - can't say I have ever been to or heard of one!

  12. OMG - I think you have given me THE BEST idea for my upcoming 40th shindig in August. A Survivor party. Awesome! I watched it for years but no longer watch it religiously. Loved those first few seasons though...

  13. Best party idea ever!
    I am so old i just want to wear pajamas everywhere!
    I used to watch survivor all the time but have missed the last few seasons, probably because it is on at stupidoclock!

  14. I think everyone over the age of 21 is highly susceptible to back-fat. Unless you are a contestant on Survivor - then you just starve it off!

  15. I've never gone on survivor so I'm not sure who I'd go as. I think those two ladies look a bit sick if you ask me.

  16. Oh I love this. I use to love showing just a little tummy... Now that little bit is a big bit and no one deserves that

  17. My Mum and I used to watch Survivor all the time. Now it's just repetitive and boring. I don't think I could survive. I would struggle with the whole sleeping outside and being with people so much.

  18. I loved this the first time around and I love it again Lydia. Sadly I didn't go with the Survivor party theme for my 40th but maybe I'll suggest this for my husband for his!

  19. Never got into watching Survivor. When it first came out there was a similar UK version called Castaway, I much preferred that. Though Bear Grylls just did a similar program, one was with an island of just women, another with just men. And no way could I survive any of it!!!!

  20. It sounds like a fun party, even with the clothing choices. I don't think I've ever worn a boob tube and I have to say I'm with you with the too old for plaits but then who cares when it is for fun.
