Mucking about with the timer for this picture. Man, it's weird taking all these pictures of myself. I realize how much I look like my mom (a good thing!).
This is the skirt I got when I went shopping with Ruth - it's so pretty and light. Love the pockets (they're nice and deep too), and it has so many colours in it! I had this outfit on with a green t-shirt and it looked nice, but the weather is still chilly so I went with the sweater. This is the 2nd sweater of this sweater I have had - yes, again, this and the striped skirt - only this time I spilled red wine down the front of the first one. I thought I got most of the stain out before it hit the washer and dryer, but missed some (in my defense, I had drunk a lot of said wine). Great colour sweater for me. Love the shoes.
My feet are all veiny from walking home, ha! The shape of these shoes is very '30s/'40s - they make me think of Mae West (one of my idols). And real suede! From Le Chateau! I call these my Tammy shoes, because Tammy at work had them in black.
The earrings are part of my Grandma J. collection. She gave me a lot of gorgeous costume jewelry pieces from the 50s when I was in my 20s, then I got to pick what I wanted after she died. I remember her wearing these - and she wore them a lot - they have wear patterns on the copper from rubbing her skin. She had curly red (dyed, like me) hair and these totally suited her colouring.I love wearing her pieces - I think of her everytime I wear them.
