Well, I said I would wear flats today - and I didn't. Nope, I wore heels!here with orange as the "pop" colour and kind of a steampunk vibe going on.
I wore them together again here in April (which is when I last wore this grey jacket), with all neutrals in the clothing and the only colour being the purple booties and amethyst accessories.
here in May for my steampunk shopping outfit for the Vintage Fair. Such a bad outfit for trying on - but it looked good!
The top is a little above ordinary, although it is t-shirt material - I last wore it here in May (2nd outfit) as part of a casual weekend look. It replaced my last blouse this colour (this silk one) that got all ooky in the pits. I'm keeping my eye out for a replacement one in a different, better quality material. It's a useful colour to have.
Sal asked if we were "go"ers or "matchers" - I admitted that I like both, but matching is certainly the easiest! These shoes are an unconventional colour and shape (but so utterly comfy and commanding!) - they're tricky to match with because of that. I liked how they went with today's outfit and got several "oooh"s about them. I last wore them here in May (non-matching) with my purple lace dress and floral tights.
Bling things (and rings):
Jacket (LeShop, consignment), skirt (Y Petites, consignment), shoes (Fly London), bracelet (Fossil), bangle (thrifted), earrings (vintage 80s, Joyce's), lapis lazuli/Fulvia ring (Wendy Brandes).
L and I - since we paid off the mortgage last year - have been slowly replacing some of our old furniture. Our current stuff is 15+ years old and rather cat-ravaged. We're hoping - perhaps overly optimistically - that Vizzini will not destroy these if they don't already have cat scent and claw sculptures already in place. He seems to be good with the new couch so far, although I did have to foil the arms for a week (he hates aluminum foil).
In addition to the new couch we got a couple of weeks ago, we went back to the second-hand store and got this awesome chair on Tuesday. It's another one from the Bombay Company (this one - linking for info only). Got it for $450 - and it's brand new! It sells in the stores for $1200! Score!
Someone claimed it right away.
