Silver Fox and Monday Blues

Everyone is on vacation, both at work and in the blogosphere, and things are really quiet. I'm good with that, as it's a good time to recharge the ol' batteries. 
It was a good time to wear this skirt again too. I apparently got the "blue memo" as it seemed like everyone in the office today was also wearing blue. Monday blues!


  • Sweater - Gap, thrifted; purchased here for $8.50
  • Skirt - JS, consignment; first worn here in April with more black and white
  • Shoes - Marc Jacobs, vintage, thrifted; last seen here in June with a black dress


Despite the dearth of people at work, I still had oodles of comments on this funky, sparkly fox sweater.
A few of my colleagues referred to me as the Silver Fox today, heh heh.

I know! I'm wearing a sweater in August, but it just has not been that warm this year. I can handle a sweater when it's only 21 degrees.
I love this skirt - another maxi!

I had to wear it with the matching shoes.
 How often do you find a pair of those that match a garment so perfectly?

The stuff:
 Such fun footwear! The ribbed sides are molded suede. These are surprisingly comfortable.

Bold bling:
 Simple, unfussy shapes.


  • Cuff - vintage fair
  • Lapis lazuli ring/ Fulvia Ring - Wendy Brandes
  • Earrings - local

This morning when I went out to do my stair picture, I spotted the teenaged seagulls on the neighbouring apartment building's roof. 

They're a sullen-looking lot, rather dingy and grey, not quite gotten their grown-up crisp white feathers yet. Ah, teenagers!

  5. That skirt and those shoes are a match made in heaven, and how cute is that fox jumper! I'm loving that amazing cuff too! Being sullen is the prerogative of juveniles, even when they're seagulls! xxx

    1. I knew I'd wear them together the minute I bought the skirt! I love the jumper - such a cute fox. The cuff was a cheapie, just elastic and tiles.

      I agree, ha ha!

  8. Are you're teenage seagulls making that awful squeaky-door-like call for food all the time? Our neighbour has one on their roof at present and it's incessant! I suppose it'll be worse when it starts it's young adult honking though!

    1. Yes! They are not quite away from their parents yet, Helen, and making an awful ruckus. The teenage crows are also all over the place.
