It seems that we love dungarees!

This is my contribution to #andyshomecatwalk. The brief for this week is #whereverilaymyhat. So where’s my hat eh?⁣

Well I’ve twisted the brief somewhat in a Paul Young 80s stylee and added the ’that’s my home!’ bit at the end! So the above are photos of me in my natural habitat – my home, my denim and my big thick socks!

To be fair, the photos are not as important as the homelessness message that @rebeccaweefsmith and @dappasnapper are trying to raise over the next few weeks along with their #wearingwellbeing message to help our mental health during lockdown. As I’ve said before, the last year has definitely been a reminder of how lucky I am to have a beautiful roof over my head and a garden to tend. I’m aware that we are all just a couple of events away from losing our home, so I’ll hand you over to Rebecca for all the info…⁣

I am just one little person but this Instagram community we have built is bigger, louder and bolder. You lot are amazing. Your support makes my world feel brighter. With you around I am hopeful. ⁣
Caring about how you look, clothes, fashion, style is often classed as shallow and self- obsessed. My experience of fashion friends is the opposite. But then I am very lucky. ⁣

Yes we can help ourselves to feel better about all the shit that’s going on by getting dressed in clothes we love BUT we can also show that in doing so we care about others. ⁣

One unexpected outcome that I love about #Andyshomecatwalk is seeing the connections that evolve and branch out: people who are sharing posts and content that I’ve never met but who are willing to make an effort to spread Andy @dappasnapper story and raise awareness and funds for @sheltercharity. I wouldn’t get quite so far if I stood on a street corner with my boards but with all your help on Instagram I think we can make a splash with this campaign, what do you think? ⁣
