|"Who are these people?"|
Today, I had both morning and evening feeding and visiting duties, so I had to get up extra early. No time for the stair picture (it was darkish out).
- Jacket - Simon Chang, vintage 80s, thrifted; last worn here in December 2017 with purple sequins
- Skirt - Ralph Lauren, vintage late 70s/early 80s, thrifted; purchased here in July for $13.95
- Boots - Clarks; last seen here (5th outfit) in December 2017
The skirt demanded a dramatic top. Double peplum action, ready to go! I love this pretty vintage jacket. I had lots of compliments on the colour.
As my day went on, my appreciation for the perfect cut of it grew. It fastens closed by only two hooks at the waist, and yet it rarely gaped open. I did wear a full vintage red nylon slip under it for coverage, just in case.
|First wearing of L's new Fluevogs - he did an orange shirt, a blue suit and a blue/lavender/orange tie - what style!|
Outerwear - my extra piece that I really wanted in this outfit was this gorgeous vintage silk Pierre Balmain scarf.
|"I know you're going to see that Other Cat."|
- Silk scarf - Pierre Balmain, vintage 80s, thrifted
- Cashmere/leather gloves - Club Monaco, consignment
- Belt - Club Monaco
- Link bracelet - J. Crew, thrifted
- Snakeskin bangle - faux Gucci, gift from Mom and Dad from Italy, c. 1986
- Tri-colour bracelet - thrifted
- Earrings - thrifted
Look at this gorgeous thing.
I'll be back this Sunday with my wrap-up, but here are some more cat and Baxter pictures for you to enjoy. Have a lovely weekend, my friends. Thank you as always for reading!

Last night, L and I strolled through our neighbourhood; we only live a few blocks from Cat and Ross and Baxter. This street is one of our favourites, as it's guarded by a gang of cats. There's three of them now!
|"People coming! Places, everyone!"|
Two of them ran for cover.
We were on his turf.
|"Move along, Lady."|
L and Baxter have a discussion.
|"You feed me. I like you."|
He has the loudest purr I've ever heard.
|"Is he doing that again? With the fingers?"|
|"Rub my tummy. Go on..."|
|"No, really, nothing will happen..."|
Then he goes full splay. Vizzini does not do this.
|"I'm a sexy kitt-ay..."|
This morning, I was treated to a different view of the Castle as the sun came up.
But someone had things to say to me.
I sat with him for a while before I walked to work.
|"If she made it past the cat gang, I might be able to trust her."|
We hung out again tonight for a while after I got home from work.
|"This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship."|
