Ooh, I love the beginning of a capsule, when everything feels new!
This is my orange velvet blazer, which I got back in January for $18.00 on consignment. I've only worn it the one time, here. The top is a cami-style, with lots of beading around the front of the V-neck. My co-worker Kara gave it to me - thank you so much! This is its first wear.
This is a link to the Minis family on the Fluevog website (I link 'cause I love). They don't make the brown/embossed colour anymore. I adore this boot, and they are so comfortable - I actually walked out and about downtown today in them, and they were awesome.
I bought them in late March of this year, and first wore them as part of my steampunk weekend here (beware of long post - it's the second outfit). I also wore them here for L's birthday party, with my tiki vintage dress and my crazy steampunk leather gauntlet.
I'm wearing my red coral bracelet and earrings again. See how I'm wearing my steampunk octopus mahjong tile necklace? (no? click here for a picture) - it actually has a match elsewhere in the outfit:
coat (close-up picture here).
Blazer (Jackpot, consignment), top (Spencer Jeremy, gift from Kara), skirt (Smoking Lily, consignment), boots (Babycakes Minis, Fluevog), bracelet (Plum), earrings (locally made), necklace (Raven's Rest Studio).
Reminder: This Saturday, October 6th is my birthday party (my birthday is actually early next week) - all my friends will be there and there will be food, drinks and dancing. Everyone will be in their party clothes.
Well, it wouldn't be a party without all of you bloggers and readers, so please put on your best outfit, and send me a link or a picture no later than end of day Sunday, and I'll do a round-up after I've recovered from the party (heh). I want to see sparkles! Pretty shoes! Anything you think might be a bit too crazy? Not for my party!
