Well, it's about time to break out the crazy, isn't it?here, and previously here and here. They are a little on the high side, heel-wise, with a 4" heel, including a small 1/2" platform under the ball of my foot. Fortunately, that platform is well-padded, but I still don't wear them as much as I should. This month will change that!
I had planned to go bare-legged, but it's decided that it is still spring in Victoria, and therefore, raining, windy and cloudy. So back to tights, at least for a day.
This is my fabulous cream tux jacket:
here. It was bought on consignment. I last wore it here; it's been stored away since the end of September.
That's my new Club Monaco leopard skirt as well - I got it in April (here) on deep discount for $29.99. Score! This replaces all my other leopard skirts.
I also have a camisole on under the jacket, which is not part of the capsule.

Jacket (Club Monaco, consignment), cami (InWear), skirt/snake bracelet (Club Monaco), shoes (Listen Up O'Hara, Fluevog), necklace (Melanie Lynne).
I nearly committed a fashion crime with this skirt - can you see it?
I had to do a quick snip of my friend's jacket the other night - the stitch was still holding the slit at the back of the jacket hem closed. I also saw a woman with this big thread hanging off her skirt where it had obviously ripped. I'm always tempted to accost strangers and offer to fix this, but I fear it might be taken the wrong way.
I would also be remiss not to mention the passing of one of my all-time favourite writers yesterday, Ray Bradbury. Coincidentally, my Book Club pick last week was "Fahrenheit 451," one of his best-known books.
I have nearly all of his books, have been collecting the vintage paperbacks for most of my adult life. His writing was a huge influence on my own writing; his gift for beautiful language and imagery has always inspired me. I felt like I belonged in his world, whether it was Green Town, Illinois with Douglas Spaulding or on Mars, wandering the canals. We have lost one of our literary greats.
Do yourself a favour and read one of his books, if you haven't in a while. I recommend "Fahrenheit 451," "Dandelion Wine," "The Martian Chronicles" and "The October Country" (a collection of short stories - all of his short stories are marvelous).
