In case you all hadn't noticed, I've been featuring all the lovely new-to-me jewelry that I picked up at the vintage fair this past weekend. Today, I'm showing off my yellow finds.
This is my fab orange suede skirt that I've had for a couple of years - it was part of the July 2012 capsule (recap here) where I wore it three times. The front panel of it is completely laser-cut into little squares - you can't really see it here (check this picture to see it in the background).
Love my caramel Ralph Lauren pumps - they were last seen here with the tiki-tiki-tiki-tiki-tiki skirt in February.
The yellows are my thrifted yellow acrylic cuff, my thermo-lucite brooch and my Bakelite earrings. Nearly everything I wore today was thrifted!
Top (handmade, vintage, thrifted), skirt (Co & Eddy, thrifted), brooch/earrings (vintage), cuff (thrifted), shoes (Lauren by Ralph Lauren).
So...my crappy days this week. I've actually been in a huge amount of pain since Sunday - one of my molars was aching and my gums were swollen. I thought maybe it was lingering or associated pain from my face-plant a few weeks ago, or maybe I'd gotten a popcorn hull stuck in there. I took painkillers, flossed, brushed...but last night I hardly slept due to the pain,and this morning I called the dentist, who kindly slipped me in this afternoon.
It turned out to be a massive infection, and good thing I went when I did. I am on painkillers and antibiotics now, and am already feeling better, but oh jeez...
If you haven't been reading my blog for a while, you might not know that I knocked out my front teeth when I was 17 (fainted in the shower, face-planted the edge of the tub). I went through over a year of dental work and surgery (in the days before pre-freezing - I had needles jammed through my hard palate), so I have a lot of trauma associated with dentists. I've also chipped my front tooth, and I'm apparently an Olympic champ at growing tartar, so I have to go through long sessions of scraping. *sigh*
Anyway, I don't usually complain about stuff on my blog (I'm mostly sunny), but thought you would want to know why some of this had seeped out into my posts. I had a really hard time doing my WW meeting last night, and I had to miss my nieces' dance recital tonight because my face was half-frozen and throbbing - I'm sorry, girls! Right now, I'm trying to eat soup now, but I'm probably going to bed. Wish me well, my friends!
