First off, thank you to all the lovely people who read and follow my blog! I hit 300 followers today (not that such things really matter, but it's such a nice round number) - after nearly 5 years of blogging, I'm proud of the fine quality of my friends in the blogosphere! Thank you!
Ooh, I love the first weeks of a new capsule! So much fun stuff to wear!
The skirt I've had for oh, a very long time, since about September 2008. Here I am with whack-a-doo hair!
I've worn it lots of times, including November 2008 (rediscovering the boyfriend cardi), December 2008 (for a Christmas party) February 2009 (yes, that's a bear head in the 2nd pic!), July 2009 (I miss those turquoise shoes, but they didn't fit), for a capsule wardrobe challenge in September 2009 (here), Dec 2009 (one of my first attempts at pattern-mixing), April 2010, October 2010 (with cranes!), Christmas Day 2010 (past the Florida pics), and the last time, in Nov 2011 (scroll down to the blue sweater).
It's a classic and I love it. The quality is superb and the fabric is nice and thick. And who doesn't love a great houndstooth skirt?

It's gotten too cold now to keep Vizzini's scratching post out on the deck, even though our deck is enclosed. We've had to move it inside, but we made sure it still had a view.
This morning, I followed the meowing:
|"Open the door! Open the door!"|
|"Ah! Must get caught up on my patrols!"|
