Are ya ready? This is a long one - I've had a very busy weekend! No Monday off for me, sadly (it's not actually a stat), but it'll be a quiet day.
Man, Thursday seems an eternity ago! Oh, yeah, this is what I wore.
The jacket is my trusty boyfriend blazer, thrifted many years ago. I last wore it here in March with dragons.
here, with rainy florals.
here last weekend.
Purple boots of insanity! I loved the fun these added to this outfit - this is probably my last go with tights for spring (I hope). I last wore these here in March with blue and orange.
Jacket (Banana Republic, thrifted), blouse (Michael Kors, consignment), skirt (J. Crew, thrifted), boots (Prepare Maps, Fluevog), cuff/bracelet (thrifted), pin (Smoking Lily), earrings (vintage).
L and I hung out on Thursday and played board games, had a nice lie-in on Friday morning and then went for brunch. It wasn't sunny, but I dressed as though it were!
I have had this denim shirt in my wardrobe for a long time - I like it as a layering piece. I last wore it here in August 2013 for traveling to L's high school reunion.
|I got this fruit-print purse at Aldo a couple of years ago|
here earlier this month with pink and gold brocade.
Shirt (Mexx, consignment), dress (Calvin Klein), shoes (Aldo, consignment), purse (Aldo).
We relaxed at home and watched a movie, then played more boardgames (with wine!) on Friday night. Vizzini enjoyed the intermittent sun. Here he is in the morning before we went out.

|Aw! Little paws!|
|"Hey, baby, I've got my lovey eyes on for you."|
here in December 2013 with many florals.
The blue dress is a good colour, but I'm a little "meh" about it overall. We'll see how it goes this spring/summer. I last wore it here in July 2013 with orange and spaghetti monsters.
here, in December 2013.
Jacket (Smoking Lily), dress (Ann Taylor, thrifted), shoes (Two Lips, thrifted).
I love these blossoms so much.
I just enjoy the view!
I found a few things at the Hospice Store, including this drapey purple sweater.
This sweater is by M&S Woman (Marks & Spencer), and was $16.00.
I recognized this label as being a local company, Tangerine Jill. I have this dress by them, too.
I did something for this skirt that I never do: I bargained and asked for a reduction. I felt a little bad about it; yes, my money is going to a charity and I can afford it. But it was the principle. This felt overpriced at $36.00.
|A real slash pocket on the side, metal buttons, leather/velcro straps with metal buckles.|
Even if they had said no, I would have still bought this. It fits great and I love the cut and style of it. It's a classic skirt.
|Nicely lined-up pattern, little straps at the bottom above the pleats - the pleats!|
Okay, get ready - I had to psych myself up to wear this in public!
Yeah, it's pretty awesome, but how do you style something this crazyass? I went with modern accessories instead of going more full-on vintage.
Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. Not dead yet? Get over there!
This denim jacket was purchased in NYC about 6 years ago - it's one of the few items I have that's pre-blog, purchased just as I was losing weight.
|You might be able to see my turquoise eyeliner/shadow there - I went full-on crazy lady!|
here in July 2013 with my Great Green Culottes (soon to make a reappearance!).
Dress (vintage 70s, Berkertex, thrifted), shoes (Enzo Angiolini, consignment), necklace (The Bay), earrings (Oscar & Libby's), brooch/earring (vintage 60s, thrifted), Fulvia Ring (Wendy Brandes).
That was a totally fun afternoon/evening. This morning, we headed over to Mom's to do Easter brunch with my family. Of course I had to dress up! My nieces were there!
I last wore this vintage wonder here (3rd outfit) in August 2013, with no cover-up.
here, for St. Patrick's day 2013 - I even have blonde hair). That's got to be rectified!
here a couple of weeks ago with much other orange.
Dress (A.J. Bari, vintage 80s, thrifted), cardigan (Kersh, consignment), shoes (Big Presence Desmond, Fluevogs), earrings (Oscar & Libby's), rings (Wendy Brandes).
L and I were a dashing couple as always.
He's got his new blue skinny jeans and his pewter Fluevogs. Shiny!
Vizinni wanted nothing to do with us.
|"I'm busy patrolling. Why don't you just go out again?"|
|"Tail is curling, toes are grabbing, gonna make the turn."|
I hope you had a lovely Easter long weekend! Back to work for me tomorrow (boo).
