And right back on that horse we go, swapping out things that don't work quite right for things that do.
- Blouse - Le Chateau, thrifted; last seen here (4th outfit) in March for our anniversary trip to Vancouver
- Skirt - J. Crew, thrifted; last worn here in September 2015 with much shiny
- Shoes - Irregular Choice "I Know"; gift from Louise this past weekend, and worn here as well
- Jacket (below) - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last worn a couple of times on the weekend here
I loved this blouse in the March capsule - it's really a nice colour and cut, and I like the faux leather trim and the snap detail on the arms and back.
here - aside from the above link) I really struggled with what to wear with it. I tried it with peach, cream and gold. Not very imaginative.
When I looked at it last night, while deciding what skirt to pull into my capsule, I immediately started putting it with the blues and greens and pinks that are dominating my colours right now. And look at that. It works! I loved it with this bright saturated blue.
I wore my fluffy coat again as outerwear.
here (YouTube short clip) for a refresher.
I saw the original movies when I was 9, 12 and 15. In this movie, the romance between Han and Leia captured my 12-year-old heart, and because we didn't have VCRs then - it was well over a decade before I finally saw the movies again - I owned (and still own) the paperback version.

As you can see, I've had my copy for a long time. I am no longer much of a Garfield fan.
I haven't read this book in years, and I am nonplussed that it does not have the famous line, Han's cocky "I know." What the?
Edit: Thanks to reader Gai for informing me that Harrison Ford ad-libbed the "I know" line and it worked so well they kept it. This book was based on the story/screenplay, so this is how it was originally supposed to be (and I like it just as much as the classic line).

- Earrings - thrifted
- Lapis lazuli ring - Wendy Brandes
It's so amazing that a piece of clothing can give you so much happiness.
