Casual Friday - Stay Fabulous or Get Slapped!

When Erin says "Stay Fabulous or Get Slapped!", I say "yes, ma'am" (because she's from Texas and you address all Texas ladies as "ma'am" or they will whup your ass).

I skipped my usual denim for Casual Friday and played with texture instead, with this Amazing New Shirt:
The greens are a little washed out there (with the change of seasons, my lighting in the den changes). Trust me, they are a lovely heathery green.

I fell in love with this shirt the minute I saw it in the consignment store. Thank god it fit!

I am a majorly detail-oriented person, so this shirt fed my passion. Back details:
Inigo approves of the patent red boots.

Look at these fabulous details:
Two different complimentary trim patterns (sleeve and that's the hem flipped up on the left side), embroidered flowers, pretty trim at the back of the neck, flowers on one side of the collar!

Pretty flower on the snap!
Adorable zig-zag stitching on the puff sleeves...with rivets! Rivets everywhere!
And on the back...
I am Queen of Faeries! This shirt is like an orgasm of details. It goes to 11.

I was quite pleased with all my accessories, especially the red boots (there's also a reddy-pink cami under the shirt that peeked out). Some guy on the bus said, "Nice boots!" What is it about compliments from strangers? They always feel so good.

(Resolves to compliment strangers more, and pass along the good karma).

The stuff:
My awesome cowboys/fair maiden belt buckle and the pee bracelet.

Shirt (no label, consignment), cami (Jacob, gift from Ruth), skirt (unknown brand, thrifted), boots (Aldo), belt/buckle (Shi Studio), bracelet (thrifted).
